Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Sahuarita First is:
To give a clear message of the love of Christ
to every man, woman, boy and girl in our community.  

Leadership Team

Our leadership team is committed to teaching the word of God to those in our church in a way
that leads them to a personal experience with Christ.  We realize our responsibility as shepherds who serve
under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word.
Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain
maturity in the fullness of Christ.
