Making Disciples

Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,   teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you. Look, I myself will be with you every day until the end of this present age.”

-Matthew 28:19-20

The Christian life is not a destination, but a journey.  We are called to be disciples, followers of Jesus.  We are called to be producers not consumers.

IMG_1129Jesus found 12 people and taught them God's ways.  After Jesus left, those 12 helped start a new movement that taught others in ways of Jesus.

Part of the identity of First Christian St. Paul is a place where we serve others and we also come to grow and to help others grow.  We offer a weekly Bible Study, as well as a Book Club called First Reads where we discuss social and theological issues.  Special classes and forums take place on Sundays.


Our programs for children and youth are still in process, but for children, we have Sunday School a nursery for infants during worship.

The Work of the People

"Worship itself is fundamentally the activity of praising God as the Creator, Reconciler, and Redeemer of humanity and all of creation. In communal worship the church makes four other defining signs of its true identity: it proclaims the Word heard in Scripture, it confesses its sin and embraces the forgiving grace of God, it celebrates God’s gracious life in sacramental acts of Baptism and Holy Communion, and it communicates in prayer with God. The church worships by engaging in these multidimensional practices of praising and conforming to the living triune God."
-Seeking to be Truly Church Today

Another way that we grow as followers of Jesus is through worship.Worship is a way for followers of Jesus to respond to the wonderful love of God. Through singing, prayer, Bible reading, silence, music, preaching, and communion we give thanks for the love God has shown us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
