The Commission

“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”  -Matthew 28:16-20

The Mission…Make disciples for the transformation of the world.

How do we make disciples and transform the world? We do it one life at a time. Every time hope is reborn in a hopeless life, every time there is a glimmer of mercy in the oppressive darkness, every time someone learns that Jesus loves them; transformation begins.

First Church leaves footprints of hope and encouragement throughout the Bartlesville area. We feed the hungry with the food grown in our Garden of Eatin’ and through our support of the CONCERN food pantry. We support the needy through Lighthouse Mission, Agape Mission, and the Angel Tree project.

We give hope and opportunity by providing partial local college scholarships to Hispanic students. We invest in local children and youth through our involvement with the Project Transformation summer reading program and our partnership with MUTUAL Girls Club.

By supporting missions in our own community, the people of First Church are serving our neighbors in need.
