Welcome to First Church!! We ascribe to be an outpost to the City of Butler through loving God, loving people and making disciples of Jesus. Being an outpost of the Kingdom of God in our city provides worship, praise and giving to our God. It supports and loves the people of our city through encouragement, rest, provision, and growth. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the people that we love become disciples of Jesus and carry the process of loving God, loving people, and making disciples back out into the worldwide community.
As the new church year begins and we remember the first coming of Christ, what can we say about the second time Jesus will come? The second coming of Jesus is the framework behind the traditional Advent themes of hope, love, joy and peace. The promise of scripture is that when Jesus returns, the kingdom of God will be on earth as it is in heaven. Life will be in real time what God has intended life to be from the very beginning; since before the fall. WHEN that moment will be is not as important as how we will live in the interim. We can live with hope, and joy, and love and peace as we wait both because the kingdom is coming in its completeness AND because the kingdom is already here because of resurrection and the Holy Spirit's presence. The Advent themes are what the Spirit produces in our lives as we confidently wait for Jesus to return and live expectantly for the moment to come.
