our mission

Amory First is a church that believes in Jesus Christ and believes that we exist to carry on Jesus' mission of bringing God's goodness on earth as it is in heaven. 

Reaching People with the gospel

Sixty-six percent of the world's population doesn't live in a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. That's a stat God cares about and so do we. In the City of Amory, that translates into a little more than 5,000 people. God is stirring up our hearts for our friends and neighbors to come to know of his love and mercy. 

We know that prayer can open doors and hearts so we tied 5,000 ribbons on banners and hung them throughout our sanctuary and started praying for our community. We are a church committed to praying for people in our community so Jesus Christ's grace and love may be known to all. 

Serving those in need

Amory First is a congregation that believes God is calling us to be His hands and feet in the world. In 2 Corinthians 5:20, the Apostle Paul says "We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God is making His appeal through us...."

  • Food vouchers
