VISION STATEMENT OF THE FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH MIDDLETOWN, NEW YORK
Our immediate focus is to minister to our church family and the Middletown area whose backgrounds are racially, culturally and economically diverse. We will seek to meet the physical needs that are particular to this community so that we might have an opportunity to meet the spiritual needs that are within every human being: The need to know Christ as Savior and Lord and to be nurtured in God’s family. As people come to faith they, in turn, will commit to and continue the same kind of work in our community and the world.
