Our mission is to be followers of Jesus challenged and equipped to change lives (It starts with me.) We believe that God has called us to help lead people experience a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by creating a dynamic environment for authentic worship, developing genuine community with each other, and actively working to create positive change in our city. Come dream with us as we continue our journey of knowing, loving and serving God in the Cullman county area and the world.
Worship is alive and transforming. It makes a difference in our lives, and is not something we watch other people do; it's something we experience in a community of faith.
Community means sharing lives, sharing emotions, bearing one another’s burdens, encouraging one another, and helping people helping each other.
Change happens when we serve the world around us, not only in word, but also in deeds as we give of ourselves to help the poor, offer comfort to the discouraged, and care for the hurting.
Cullman First is part of the United Methodist denomination, and we uphold our heritage by pursuing ministry in keeping with this tradition. We are the people of the “extreme center,” balancing faith and works, conversion and social justice. We use the Wesleyan Quadrilateral- Scripture, tradition, reason, and experience- in our pursuit of understanding God’s will and God’s word. We seek to be generous in spirit, broadminded, devoted to Jesus Christ, and wholly surrendered to God.
We strive for personal holiness by inviting people into a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ, and we pursue social holiness in the public sphere by displaying grace, mercy, and compassion to others. Grace is the cornerstone of our beliefs and guides us in all things. As United Methodists, our foundation is a theology of grace, hearts warmed by the Holy Spirit, and an open table at Communion.
Following Jesus. Changing Lives.
