The First Church of God in Christ in Jeanerette, Louisiana-- a Bible teaching, Christ-centered, Spirit-filled church-- exists to continue the mission of Jesus Christ in "seeking and saving" those who are lost by reaching them, teaching them the Bible, and winning them to Christ. It is also incumbent upon the First Church to educate her members in scriptural knowledge so that they will mature and observe to do all those things our Lord has commanded in the Word. Further, the First Church will provide worship to edify and fellowship to socialize its members as she ministers to the whole man--spirit, soul, and body--thus, involving them in the church; developing unity in the Body of Christ; and equipping and conserving members in the service of the Lord Jesus Christ. Finally, as she serves her community, the First Church of God in Christ will assume the role of a community church as she reaches out to the children, youth, and adults through various ministries to improve the quality of life in Jeanerette.
