That every household within the influence of our congregation is introduced to Jesus Christ, where lives are transformed by Him into fully devoted followers - based on Romans 12:1-2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (NIV)
First Church of Christ exists to produce fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ - based on Matthew 28:18-20
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.” (NIV)

"He must increase, but I must decrease"
(NASB, John 3: 30)
At this point in the life of John the Baptist, he was facing a time when his purpose on earth was coming to a close. John's disciples were concerned that he was not as popular as before but like a good follower of God's will, he told them in not so many words not to worry, Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God had arrived! John's life purpose was to point others to the promised Messiah and he had accomplished it. Now, it was time for Christ to move into the forefront of fulfilled prophecy and for John to fade out of the limelight.
John's attitude in life concerning Christ is a model for the attitude that all believers in Christ should embrace. When we accept Him as Savior and Lord, we also must decrease (shed our selfish and sinful desires) so that He can increase through our lives. We must put on Christ as the apostle Paul once wrote to become the image of Christ for others and by the Holy Spirit, given to all baptized believers in Jesus Christ, the strength and the means to do this is provided. In this way, we will accomplish our own life's purpose of being a witness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
