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

What is our mission

First Monroe exists so that all people may know Jesus.


That all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no other.

1 kings 8:60


That people may know, from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none besides me; I am the Lord, and there is no other.

Isaiah 45:6


So that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the Lord is mighty, that you may fear the Lord your God forever.”

Joshua 4:24


By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

John 13:35


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.

1 Peter 2:9

Who we are

At First Monroe, our hope is to see every member live out our 3 core values: Love Jesus, Grow In Community, Make Disciples.


Love Jesus: 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 Jesus well glorify Him and we seek to help people fall more in love with Him.


Grow In Community: We believe that life is best lived in community and is essential in the life of a believer. Being intentional with those around us help to build biblical community.



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