About Lawrence First Church
Here at Lawrence First Church, we want to be a group of believers who are together, living first in Christ. We are just ordinary, everyday people who are seeking to live God’s way as we journey together toward faith in Him. When we say “together” we don’t just mean those of us who are already here, but we believe Lawrence First Church is a home for anyone. It doesn’t matter where you are on your faith journey, we will be in this together. We don’t think God cares too much about what we wear or what we’ve done in our past. We think He cares more about where we’re going. So, we invite you to come as you are and join us on the journey as we seek to LOVE BOLD, SHINE BRIGHT and LIVE FULL in Jesus!
The vision of Lawrence First Church of the Nazarene is to be a people who are Together living first in Christ. Throughout the Bible we see Jesus teaching people that there is a higher standard by which we are to pattern our lives. Jesus often calls this “God’s Kingdom” or the “Kingdom of heaven.” People in Bible times were used to living by rules that were set forth by the King or the ruler of the kingdom in which they lived. Jesus’ message was that there is a different kingdom we should seek first: God’s Kingdom. Jesus’ life was the ultimate example of what it meant to live for God.
Here at LFC, we want to follow this pattern by seeking to TOGETHER LIVE FIRST IN CHRIST. We can do this tangibly by following Jesus’ example of loving God and loving others. This is a bold love, which seeks to do what’s best for another person instead what’s best for us. As we LOVE BOLD, we also SHINE BRIGHT God’s light into lives of others around us. As we live first in Christ, we begin to LIVE FULL. Jesus said he came that we might have life and have it to the full (John 10:10). He wants nothing more than to give us the full, abundant, purposeful life that he intended for us. All we have to do is LIVE FIRST IN CHRIST!
