Seeking truth and sharing life.

God wants us to be transformed by the whole gospel in order that we may be conformed into the image of Jesus. Here at First College, we’ve got four core values:

  1. Devote: a personal devotion to a relationship with the Lord
  2. Belong: a rich community built upon the Word of God
  3. Persist: disciples of Jesus seeking to fulfill the unfinished work of the Church
  4. Go: disciples of Jesus going across the streets, the states, and the seas to further the kingdom of God

We would love to be a part of the four most transformative years of your life!!
