WHO ARE WE
To put it simply, Muncie First Church is a group of people gathering together because of Jesus. We have found hope and life in Jesus. We want as many people as possible to experience that same freedom and to become more like Jesus. We are striving to be a church that is a LOVING COMMUNITY, FAMILY FOCUSED, and FOR THE CITY.
We have three core beliefs at Muncie First Church that make up our identity as a faith community. We believe:
- Every CONNECTION matters
- Every FAMILY matters
- Every JOURNEY matters
We want to be A CHURCH FOR THE CITY. It is our goal in everything we do as a faith community to take the hope of Jesus Christ to our city and make a difference in Muncie, In.
WHERE ARE WE HEADED
We move towards Jesus in every aspect we can. We want to press on towards what lies ahead.
"Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead," Philippians 3:13
We believe becoming more like Jesus means we need to be a growing community that reaches people and as a result we desire to help people grow. Our desire is to see people become more like Jesus in every possible way. In everything we do, we want to head towards growth.
Jesus has invited us all to come and follow him. We believe this is a life changing invitation that marks the first step in our faith journey.
Life is always better when we are in a group and true growth happens not in rows on Sunday morning but in circles throughout the week. We want to help you get into a group. This is the second step in our faith journey.
Our journey of faith always grows faster and our passion increases when we serve. Even Jesus said that He came to serve not to be served. This third step is very significant to growth in faith.
We are people that have been given much and we want to bless others by giving back of our time, talent, money, and resources. This is the fourth step in our strategy and it can be a life-changing part of ones relationship with Jesus.
The final step in anyones faith journey is to GO. Jesus has called us all to GO into all the world and make disciples. We want to be a faith community marked by relentlessly following the mission to GO and reach the world. The final step in your journey is significant because this where you share your faith experiences with others.
Our code is a core set of principles that make up our DNA at Muncie First Church. Similar to our beliefs these key pieces of our identity.
