First Missionary Church was founded in the late 1800's with a priority on world missions. From its earliest days, missionaries were selected, supported financially and spiritually, and sent out into the world. This continues today with about 25% of the annual budget being designated to missionary support and missions projects.
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Acts 1:8
