Global outreach

Beyond the 918.

The Mission

The mission of First Church is to Love Jesus and Love Like Jesus and that doesn’t stop here in the 918. We do our very best to take the gospel past state lines and beyond national borders. Global outreach is now and always has been an integral part of our identity, as we are committed to being a Kingdom-minded church by honoring the great commission as laid out in the Bible.
Then Jesus came to them and said, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore 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. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age" (Matthew 28:18-20).

missionaries We Support

First Church has a heart for supporting families who take the step of faith to travel abroad on a semi-permanent basis, to take the gospel of Jesus Christ outside their homes, their states, and even their continents. It goes hand in hand with our Core Values to be a Kingdom-Minded church, and to Raise Up Godly Leaders. These families have heard the call to honor the Great Commission in this way and it is essential for living out the mission Christ imparted on us to support such efforts.

Organizations we support

Cookson Hills

Cookson Hills provides home, school, and therapy for kids who are at-risk. 
For many kids, Cookson Hills is their childhood home. For others it’s a temporary home for about two years. All kids come here to live within a family. They enroll in school, they play sports, they make friends, they set the table, they laugh, they ride horses, they heal, and (we hope) they leave better than they came.


CrossRoads connects people of all ages with impactful service in the USA and Mexico.
Founded in 1993, CrossRoads Missions serves as a conduit for organizations, volunteers, and funders seeking outreach and giving opportunities they may otherwise have difficulty reaching.


Fellowship of Christian Students at OSU
FOCUS, Fellowship of Christian University Students, is a campus ministry that has been serving students at Oklahoma State University for over 35 years.

Evangelism, Empowerment, Education
We believe in a holistic approach to ministry. Our aim is to see people transformed by the grace of Jesus Christ through our evangelistic efforts, but we also believe we must enrich people’s lives and society through education and empowerment. This strategy allows for holistic transformation of a person’s heart, mind, and soul.
