About Faith First:

Faith First is a faith-based nonprofit that creates intentional connections between churches and believers from different walks of life throughout Northern California. We believe the Body of Christ must act with greater unity to serve a world in need of God's love. Specifically, we pair sister churches of different ethnic and/or socioeconomic makeups to create opportunities for their congregations to engage in fellowship, learn from one another and build ongoing relationships. What else are we passionate about? Racial equality we believe faith is the key to getting there. Our work as an organization reflects the love and compassion we have for others. If this resonates with you, we encourage you to read on!
Unfortunately, the body of Christ is associated more - with political ideologies, social agendas, and a general sense of mean-spiritedness. That's how we show up in the news and social media and it's how we sometimes engage with the community. Lost in all of this is God's collective
