About Our Church

Our Local congregation was organized in 1908, and the present building was dedicated to the Glory of God on October, 18, 1908.

Welcome! What should I Expect..

Attending a church for the first time can be intimidating.  “Will they accept me?… I know very little about the Bible… I think God exists, but I have my doubts”.  We get all that!  So, here are a few thoughts that might help break the ice.

At First church of God Franklin, we are all on a journey.   As we travel this road called life most of us find this internal knowing that, “I have potential to be more!”   With that idea in focus we strive to create a come-as-you -are culture – a place where people are authentic and accepting.  We welcome each individual wherever they may find themselves on their journey.

So here’s where all this is going: God is for you.    In our world of job reviews, Monday morning quarterbacking, tv vote-to-win competitions, and talking heads, it’s hard to believe that someone loves you simply because you’re you.  But we find that until we grasp that God is for us (He is good, loves us, wants only the best for us…), we will be very prone to running and hiding, never feeling like we measure up.

So should you decide to give us a shot – a warm welcome awaits you!  You most likely won’t find a “perfect” church – and definitely no perfect people – but hopefully you’ll find a place to grow.
