Intercultural Ministries

Unity in Diversity!

"And they sang a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation." (Revelation 5:9)

Here are First Assembly we believe in connecting with all cultures and people groups. We believe that God can bring unity in diversity where a church body can be comprised of individuals of diverse backgrounds coming together as one.

The inter-cultural ministry exists to support our Senior Pastor with establishing that vision.

Our main goal is two-fold: (1) to integrate into our church body those attending our congregation from different ethnic communities, and (2) to reach their unsaved friends and family.

Towards that effort, we currently offer certain services in Spanish and Portuguese for our Latino and Brazilian/Portuguese families:

  1. Spanish Sunday School - Escuela bíblica dominical en español
  2. Spanish Connect Groups - Reuniones hogareñas en español
  3. Portuguese Connect Groups - Reunião nas casas em português
  4. Various events throughout the year: Christmas outreach event, bi-lingual evangelistic services, men's/women's retreats

It is our desire that the Lord will bless us through the addition of more ethnic communities being integrated into our church body as our Lord does not want anyone to perish but for all to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the truth (1 Tim 2:4).
