The Counter-cultural Impact

In a world driven by materialism, individualism, and self-gratification, following Jesus stands out as a counter-cultural act of faith. Lima First Assembly of God, a dedicated community that embraces and promotes Christian values, seeks to shed light on the inherent challenges and the profound impact of following Jesus in today's society.

Challenging the Status Quo

At Lima First Assembly of God, we firmly believe that following Jesus requires individuals to challenge the status quo and embrace a life centered around love, compassion, and selflessness. Our community strives to create a nurturing environment where believers can deepen their understanding of the teachings of Jesus and find support in their journey of faith.

The Unique Call of Jesus

Jesus's teachings invite us to live differently from the world around us. He calls us to love our neighbors as ourselves, forgive those who wrong us, and prioritize spiritual growth over worldly pursuits. While society might push us to focus on personal success and material possessions, following Jesus compels us to prioritize eternal truths that transcend the temporary pleasures of this world.

Transforming Society

Following Jesus extends beyond personal faith. It has the power to influence society and create positive change. At Lima First Assembly of God, we are committed to demonstrating the love of Christ to the wider community. Through outreach programs, social initiatives, and partnerships with local organizations, we strive to make a lasting impact and exemplify the counter-cultural values of Jesus.

Living Out Faith

For followers of Jesus, faith is not just a set of beliefs, but a way of life. We believe in the importance of putting our faith into action and embodying the transformative message of the Gospel. Lima First Assembly of God encourages individuals to serve others, advocate for justice, and embrace a lifestyle characterized by integrity and compassion.

Challenges and Rewards

While following Jesus may be counter-cultural and challenging, it also brings immense rewards and fulfillment. Our community celebrates the joy of knowing Christ, experiencing His grace, and finding purpose in every aspect of life. We understand that the journey might not always be easy, but we stand together and support one another through the ups and downs of following Jesus.
