First Hewitt exists to glorify God by making fully devoted followers of Christ in Hewitt and to the ends of the earth.
Neighborhoods and Nations is our strategy to mobilize and equip every follower of Christ to participate in this disciple-making mission.
We believe that God has intentionally called us to love our neighbors well. This is not limited to those who live in our neighborhood, but it certainly should include our physical neighbors. Therefore, we have divided our city into 5 large sections or neighborhoods. Our goal is to connect those who live in each section and to actively be a Gospel light in the places where we live.
We believe that every believer has a role to play in God's global mission. This role will look different for all of us. There are those who are called to go and others who are called to stay. One is not better than the other and both are essential to the task.
We seek to participate in God's global mission by actively going, sending, and support the work of missionaries around the world. We will surrender our time, talents, and resources for the sake of the lost, the poor, and the vulnerable who need Christ. We work with established partners who seek to build new churches and strengthen existing churches around the world. We do this through short term trips and long-term partnerships.
