Words of Welcome

Hello and welcome to First Church of Mesa!

Whether you are looking for a church community, are seasoned members, or just passing through - you are important and special to us.  Thank you for stopping by.

As a historic, downtown church, we remember our heritage is a path that leads us toward tomorrow.  Our motto, “A Historic Church with a Modern Message” reminds us of our mission to live faith and love life through Jesus Christ.  We accomplish this daily, rather than with the notion of an era of days gone by, as we serve God and neighbor locally and around the world.  We believe that we are in the midst of our best days and expect something grander to come.

It is our prayer as you look around this site that you will discover we are welcoming and affirming to all people and we are a place where it is okay to seek and ask questions. We hope you find us to be the community that you have been waiting for.

I look forward to greeting you personally,

Pastor David
