Join us as we seek the Lord’s favor in accomplishing our church’s mission to serve the Lord!
Mission – Vision – Values – Priorities
First ARP Church exists to glorify God by conducting public corporate worship, bringing the lost to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, building them up in the Christian faith, and preparing them for Christian service.
We desire to be a welcoming family of Reformed believers committed to the historic Christian faith and life with 150 members.
Our values include:
- Reverent and Joyful Worship of the One True God
- Proclamation of the Truth of the Holy Scriptures
- Salvation Through Faith in Jesus Christ
- Personal Renewal by the Word and Holy Spirit
- Christian Love, Fellowship and Service
- Worldwide Evangelism and Missions
In order to accomplish our mission and see our vision realized, we have established the following priorities over the next five years (2020-2024):
- Serve as a beacon in the community by our steadfast commitment to a biblical mission, values, and vision.
- Grow our membership by our individual and corporate outreach into our families, neighborhoods, workplaces, and spheres of influence.
- Continue to invest in local, regional, and foreign mercy, evangelistic, and missionary efforts that help proclaim Christ’s mercy to the world.
- Invest in our staff who are instrumental in helping us accomplish our excellent ministry of worship, discipleship, equipping, and outreach.
- Engage additional staff, as finances allow, who can assist us in ministry, worship, administration, and facility management.
- Maintain our wonderful facility by regular maintenance, planning for capital improvements, and saving appropriate funds for these needs.
- Build our Legacy Fund by raising an additional $500 per month which can be invested for long-term growth for future worship, ministry, and facility needs.
