About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

First Monroe exists to make Christ known.


"9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. "

1 Peter 2:9-10


There are three ways we seek to do this: by helping people love God, reach people, and grow disciples.

What is our mission

Love God: Jesus taught that the first and greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, mind, and soul. We believe a life that is passionately in love with God will glorify Him and we seek to help people fall more in love with Jesus.


Reach People: Jesus came in to this world to reach people and bring them into a relationship with His Father. We believe that life is only found in Christ and we seek to reach people with the Gospel.


Grow Disciples: Jesus commanded all those who follow Him to go into all the world and make disciples. We believe that growing disciples fulfills God's call to Christians and we seek to grow disciples in Monroe and to the ends of the Earth.

Where we come from

First Monroe was founded in 1854 and has a long and rich history for the Gospel in our city. Our church has impacted countless people in our city and around the world.

Where we're headed

We believe the best days of First Monroe are not behind us - but before us! We are committed to reaching our city with the Gospel of Jesus. We are passionate about following God's direction for our church, and we would love for you to join us as we see the Gospel reach our city and the world.
