Who we are at First Mennonite Church of Iowa City
We believe that God calls us to be followers of Jesus Christ and, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to grow as a community of grace, joy, and peace, so that God's healing and hope flow through us to the world. We strive for Open Hearts, Open Minds, Rooted in Christ.
At First Mennonite Church (FMC) we are a historic peace church, striving to be an Anabaptist community-- young, old, families, friends-- that, by the grace of God, is shaped by the life of Christ, which acts with the compassion of Christ, and worships in the name of Christ.
We Welcome You
God offers generous grace to all. Therefore, we welcome, celebrate, and affirm the image of God in persons of every race, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status, ability, age, marital status, and in the uniqueness each person brings to our community. We believe God’s love builds bridges, and we strive to follow Jesus’ example to love and welcome all people. We invite everyone, including LGBTQ+ persons, who seeks to follow Jesus’ model of faithful discipleship, to participate fully in congregational life. This includes worship, communion, baptism, membership, marriage, leadership, and pastoral ministry.
