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.
In 2 Peter 1:16, the apostle Peter writes, “For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of the Lord Jesus Christ but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.” Unlike the words of false teachers who spoke in fables or myths, the apostle revealed the “power and coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.” This is something that Peter and others were eyewitnesses to and was not some mythical story with a fairytale ending, but something real, and it was nothing less than the coming of the Lord in power.

“Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders which you have done, and your thoughts toward us; there is none to compare with you. If I would declare and speak of them, they would be too numerous to count” (Psalm 40:5, NASB).
