First Christian is a Christian community who strive to serve one another in grace, truth and love.  We want to connect each member of the family to God through His Son. Enabling each member to grow in His Word, in His Truth, and in His service, in such a way that speaks to the individual where they are at.  

We know that being a family in today’s culture can look very differnt then in cultures past, however, we know that God hasn’t changed His deffinetion of family.  He never intended for the church to be the only place for spritiual training to take place.  He intended for this training to be the parents responsibility, so they may claim the promise in Proverbs 22:6.  Realizing that some parents may just be starting their walk with the Lord, they  may need a helping hand in this training. So we endeavor to become partners with parents in Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

Children and Youth Ministries


You may have heard it said "They don’t care about what you KNOW until they know that you CARE". We at The First Christian Church of Wilton Manors strive to offer an environment where children and youth discover how much God truly loves them, by exemplifying Christ love.  Believing whole heartedly that our Lord’s example while here on earth, relational instruction is the key.  Jesus called each of his disciples by name, and exhibited servant like qualities to them all.  Our goal is to teach each child that God’s love for them is real and strong, and that His Word is alive.  Teaching them that not only is it important to know that David defeated the giant years ago, but that God is defeating their giants today. The giants of broken families, loss of loved ones, and those bullies on the playground.   So many people say that the children and youth of today is TOMORROW'S church. We believe however that they are TODAY'S church. Children and youth learn that they don’t have to wait until they are adults in order to reach the world for Christ. They can bring others to Him by living the way that Jesus commanded by loving your neighbor as yourself.
