About Us

I AM FIRST

We're not trying to be proud or self-serving. In fact, it's not that at all! On the mountain, Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?” And God told Moses, “This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” So when we at First Church say "I Am first," what we mean is that God is first!
