What You will find at philly first


Philly First is a unique international community representing an ever-growing population of believers from around the globe. 

Worship: Even though we are very diverse, we believe that to have an effective community we must commit to a time of weekly celebration. At these celebrations you will experience authentic worship and challenging Biblical teaching on issues that are important to you today.  Our main worship service is Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m.

Fellowship: Intentional relationships are key to sustained spiritual growth. That's why MOSAIC groups are such an important part of our discipleship strategy. MOSAIC provides opportunities for individuals to find "their place" in the larger Christian community. Through authentic relationships, we find love, support, encouragement, accountability and discipline.

Prayer: We believe in a living God who wishes to have personal and dynamic relationship with us. Prayer is one important way of communicating with God.

Service: We believe God calls us to serve others.  We are instructed to "do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God" (Micah 6:8).

Develop Leaders:  Our goal is to identify, enlist, train, commission and encourage Christian leaders.
