Our Mission

The mission of CR First is to love and lead people into an authentic, life-changing relationship with Jesus.
KNOW GOD We help people begin a personal relationship with Jesus. We are not as driven by the amount of information people have about God, but we want to help them apply what they know deeply. John 15:16 FIND YOUR PEOPLE We live the life of Jesus with others in order to draw others into the life of Jesus. We believe life is lived better in circles than in rows so we work hard to make sure everyone feels as though they belong. Hebrews 10:24-25. EXPERIENCE FREEDOM We help people discover freedom from sin and life controlling issues. Freedom happens in the context of relationships and God’s supernatural power. Galatians 5:1, James 5:16. DISCOVER PURPOSE We help people discover their God given purposes. We were created with unique strengths which can be empowered by the Spirit to lead people to Jesus. Ephesians 2:10 MAKE A DIFFERENCE God invites us to join Him in working to redeem and restore a lost and broken world. We help people connect with a mission that is bigger than them and together we make a difference in our world. Acts 1:8
