First Church is a group of people who are, simply put, disciples of Christ. We strive to love God,
to put Him first in all things, and to love others as He loves us. Studying the Word and spending time in prayer
we grow in faith. As Jesus was a servant, we too strive to serve the Kingdom and those around us.
And we answer the call to go into our world sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
First Church was established over 100 years ago bringing the beautiful message of salvation to the
City of DeRidder; we continue to share the Gospel of Christ throughout our community today.
We strive to create a church that is a safe-haven for the hurting, that feeds the hungry, and
empowers each individual, no matter their age or stage in life, to grow in their relationship with God.
