First Church is a group of people who are, simply put, disciples of Christ.
We prepare our hearts by living repentant and overcoming lives, attentive to the voice of God. We seek to grow deeper in relationship with God, and through prayer and study we find divine direction. With revelation we strive to live God's word, daily making eternally wise life decisions. And, finally our objective is to teach others through a godly witness of love and service. As disciples we answer the call to go
into our world sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and we are empowered to
fulfill this mission as we prepare, seek, live and teach.
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.
