We know it is tough to find a church that is truly welcoming. First has been welcoming and discipling people of every age and every walk of life for a long time. First is church for you, your parents and your children. We truly have open hearts, open minds and open doors.
I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
– Ephesians 4:1-6
