Our Mission

Christ First Church was founded by Wayne Chasteen in 2012 as an extension of his ministry, Rhyme & Reason. The church is a large vision concept encompassing a multifaceted call to faithfulness and evangelism.

C1C is an interracial, multi-cultural congregation that believes in the fact that Jesus died once and for all, and that we are all in need of salvation by His grace, without exception. It is at the heart of Christ First Church to reach out to those lost and hurting. To the LOST, because we are compelled. To the HURTING, because we are compassionate.

Jude 1:22-23a “And of some have compassion, make a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire…”

Our call, first then, is to evangelize our world and share the message of Jesus Christ without favoritism. Secondly, we resolve to embrace with open arms and minds those who have been hurt, or broken from the fall, to restore such, to a place of health and usefulness. So then, we pledge to God, first and foremost, our LIVES, and to the world, our LOVE.

Matthew 28:19-20 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
