First Cov has long been committed to "missions". It’s part of our very identity. We were first called a "Mission Church." Our people were first known as "Mission Friends." For us, mission is first about sharing with others the good news of God’s grace and kingdom found in Jesus Christ — the good news that God can be known in a personal way through Jesus Christ.

Jesus has given us a challenge, a purpose and a mission: making disciples of all nations. Acts 1:8 says, "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Matthew 28:18-20 says: "Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'"

We are committed to being an active part of God's work in this world among all peoples. The God of the universe is seeking people everywhere. He wants all to be saved and welcomed into a life in his family. That can only occur as his people share, by word and life, the good news of Jesus. Our mission work and mission support is toward this end – that God will be glorified among all the nations and that Jesus Christ will transform human lives now.
