First Christian Church
First Christian Church of Leisure World teaches from God’s word, the Holy Bible, most often verse by verse. It is a friendly church that welcomes all visitors.
Through knowledge of God and of Jesus, people will come to a fuller understanding of God’s grace or unmerited favor. The more a person understands God’s grace, the more the person will experience peace. They will also be able to discern when they are exposed to false teaching because they know the truth. Knowledge of God’s word is a first step in protection against false teaching. The apostle Peter makes this point throughout 2 Peter.
