Connect, Cultivate and Commit
are three words that describe how First Church is making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
A discipleship pathway helps us all experience how our church helps children, youth adults, and seniors become life-long followers of Jesus. We are a church dedicated to inviting all people from greater San Diego to dare to follow Jesus!
Connect to Christ
Every journey must begin somewhere. This journey begins with experiencing a CONNECTION with Christ. Our CONNECT ministries help foster that relationship with Christ and His church through small groups and welcoming ministries. God is reaching out to a broken and hurting world. Our church wants to be a part of that by inviting all people from all walks of life to CONNECT with Christ!
