Hello!  I am Matt Kuiken, Pastor at First ARP Church.  Thank you for exploring our website; I hope that you find it encouraging and informative.

Let me share three things that I especially value about First ARP Church:

-First ARP is gospel-focused.  We believe that the Gospel is crucial not just for our salvation but also for our daily growth in Jesus Christ.  It is God’s grace in Christ that saves us and motivates us for worship and ministry.

-First ARP has a kingdom vision.  Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are striving to advance His kingdom on earth, both locally and around the world.  We seek to do this by faithfully proclaiming God’s Word as revealed in the Bible and by seeking to be a faithful presence for Christ whereever He has placed us.

-First ARP is a church family.  We are an imperfect and sinful people, but by God’s grace, the people here genuinely seek to love and care for one another.  This is a safe place to grow in the Christian faith and to share life’s struggles with fellow Christians.

The best way to get a feel for First ARP Church is to visit.  Please join us for Sunday morning worship at 8:30 or 10:55am, or for one of our other ministry events.  Like every other church, we are a work in progress but God is moving in powerful ways in and through First ARP Church.  We invite you to join us as we seek to serve and glorify our gracious God.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any specific questions or concerns.

Love in Christ,
