We are a church that believes in loving God, living purely, and continuing in the Apostles doctrine as explained in Acts 2:37-42. This church was founded with the sole purpose of being a real light to a dark world. How can we be different? How can we be the change? What is the point of creating a new path for a vision as old as the Bible? Modern religion has veered off course in many aspects. We are simply desiring to get back to the truth of God and showing genuine love without adding burdens to people. We not only want to be the Church, but We also want to be the Change. There are countless opportunities to impact those around us. It's time for us to be the Church and to truly live Christ-like. We can change the world, but only after we let God change us.
FBCVA has been a multi-generational church in Van Alstyne, Tx, for over 100 years. The church has been a steadfast and faithful part of our community since the formation of our community. We pray that we remain faithful to those who came before us in sharing the Gospel in our time and making preparations for future generations of worshippers in our community. We are a transformational church that is Biblically based, Christ-centered, and Gospel-driven.
May the grace and peace of Jesus Christ be with you! I am very thankful for the ministry of First United Methodist Church of Van Alstyne and welcome you to our website. I hope that no matter where you are in the world, you feel the love of God's grace in your life. If you are in or nearby the Texas community of Van Alstyne or soon will be a part of our community, we invite you to join us in the many ways we serve Christ and love one another. Please visit our church at 303 S. Preston, Van Alstyne, TX, 75495. Share your gifts, graces, and faith story with us as we share our gifts, graces, and faith story with you. I can think of no better way to witness the glory, imagination, and diversity of God and God's creation than through the lives and experiences of people coming together in praise, fellowship, Christian education, and mission. If you are not near us and not sharing in the peace of Christ through a local congregation, please seek one out near you. May the Love of God the Father, the Peace of Christ, and the Communion of the Holy Spirit be with you now and always!
Jerry Jones, Pastor
Church Project began with a mission to RETHINK church and RETURN to the essence of leading, gathering and living the way Christ and the early church intended. We intend to be unashamedly BIBLICAL, irreducibly SIMPLE, understandably RELEVANT to all, and radically GENEROUS. We are an organism, not an organization. We believe that Christ changes lives and that His church can be the most powerful influence of love and change on the planet. We want to change how people see Christ, Christians, and the Church.
First Christian is a warm congregation with historic roots and a modern worship service. All are welcome to join us on Sundays at 10:50am. We also provide ministries for children and youth, opportunities to serve, and small groups for adults.
