Welcome to 1ST.ORG!
We are excited, honored and eager to bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ and to our Heavenly Father through this venue.
Our mission is simple and direct. We want to help you to obtain and maintain a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and walk with HIM now and forever-more!
Who We Are
We are inspired by the Holy Spirit to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the eternal son of GOD and the only way to salvation and reconciliation with GOD the Father and the only true source of peace and love in a world that has fallen.
We are committed servants and followers of Jesus. We are humbled before our Lord and believe that all righteousness is of Jesus and HIS grace, mercy, love and faithfulness. We consider Faith to be the only way to salvation and that salvation cannot be attained or lost through human effort or failures, but only through the love, grace and mercy, bestowed upon us by the Father, through the atoning blood of HIS eternal Son, Jesus Christ and the powerful workings of the Holy Spirit.
We are open to people of all walks of life, who want to learn more about the GOD of the Holy Bible. We are not "holier than thou" Christians, we do not have endless rules and sacraments, and we do not sit in judgment on anyone. We believe very simply that in order to be saved, individuals must accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, by way of Faith.
We believe that a person "should" be baptized by way of full immersion (Just as the Lord was) as an act of public confession and that communion should be taken, anytime believers come together in the name of Jesus Christ.
Finally, we are a ministry of action and sacrifice. We believe that the Lord has commanded all believers to seek the things above, where our Lord Jesus Christ is seated at the right hand of God. That our lives, talents, money and energies are to be focused on spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, by preaching, teaching and living the Gospel of Christ.
We believe that the Church has become weak in its mission and ineffective its influence, because it has moved away from the discipleship calling of our Lord. We believe that heartbroken Christians must clearly see that a large portion of the Church today has become unwilling to suffer for Christ and instead, believe that Christ is here to serve them.
Pick up your cross and follow me means, to give until it hurts and to make sacrifices to the Lord that reflect our hope in the eternal life and not a life of comfort here.
Simply Put - we at 1ST.ORG believe our lives are about bringing Glory, Honor and Praise to the Lord Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father, God Almighty and "everything" we are and have, is to willingly be surrendered to that purpose.
We welcome you to our website and would invite you to join us or contact us. We pray and hope that the Lord draws you near to HIM, wherever HIS path may lead you.
