About Us

Our Story

We desire to see people that are far from God come close to Him and to teach believers to live a life of holiness and repentance for which He has called us to live. No matter where you come from, what lifestyle you have lived, or what life experiences you have endured – we believe Caruthersville First is a place for you. We are a church fueled by great faith and we’ve seen God do things that only He can do – hundreds of lives changed, marriages restored, families healed and hearts made whole. And as God continues to increase the size of our platform, we are aggressively pursuing opportunities to reach more and more people with the life-changing message of the Gospel. Through the use of preaching, worship, outreach, and creativity, we strive to present the timeless message of Jesus Christ in a clear and fresh way with a casual environment. And although our approach to church is anything but traditional, we believe in and maintain a conservative theological position.
