Essential Convictions

We are a non-denominational, evangelical, Bible-believing and Christ-centered ministry. The Bible is our sole and final authority. Here is a brief statement of key points of faith:

  • We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God.  
  • We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  
  • We believe in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His deity, His sinless humanity and perfect life, the eternal all-sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Fathers right hand, and His personal imminent return to this Earth in power and great glory.  
  • We believe that justification (salvation) is an act of God, based solely on the righteousness and atoning death of Jesus Christ, and that becoming born again by the power of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for salvation: that is by grace alone through faith alone.  
  • We believe in the Lordship of Christ over His church; the observance of the ordinances of baptism by immersion for believers and the Lords Supper.  
  • We believe in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed in heaven and the eternal doom of the unregenerate in the lake of fire.

For further explanation of our beliefs, see the 

1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith.

“So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord’” (Matt. 25:20-21).

Our Pledge To You

Even though we operate as a faith-ministry, we do not feel it is proper to hide the real needs from God’s people or suppress the genuine economic reality that it takes financial resources to engage in ministry endeavors. Without financial contributions from the people of God, we could not edit, typeset, print, store, distribute, or mail out Christian literature around the world free of charge as we currently do. We also could not field missionary teams to preach, teach, equip, and engage with the churches and leaders directly without the means to send them.

From our inception, we have resolved to rely solely on the Lord to work among His people to help support our ministry. We have determined that it is not in keeping with the example found in Scripture to solicit funds by pressuring or manipulating God’s people, so it is our desire to refrain from doing just that while still sharing our needs with others. If the Lord desires to use FirstLove as a small enterprise to help saturate the world with the knowledge of Him (Isa. 11:9), then we give God all the glory and honor, and we recognize that He will move His people to help support our ministry by providing laborers and financial resources to continue our present work. At the same time, we recognize there are Spirit-led individuals who desire to contribute in some fashion, whether that is through a contribution of prayers, time, talent, or resources. We greatly and wholeheartedly thank God for every single contribution to our ministry and pledge to be good stewards of those resources entrusted to us. Because of faithful men and women who gave of their time, talents, and money, we have been able to accomplish the following:

  • Distribute more than 200,000 Christ-centered books and booklets to people throughout the world free of charge.
  • Hold more than 100 evangelism seminars and conferences in the United States, Nigeria, Nepal, India, and the Philippines.
  • Hold annual conferences and theological training seminars in developing countries for pastors.
  • Create a flourishing Bible seminary in Nigeria.
  • Provide radio teaching in Africa and Asia.
  • Teach personal evangelism techniques to believers around the worldwide.

Every day, we receive requests for free Christian literature, church visits, or evangelism opportunities across the United States and around the world. As our opportunities increase, so too do the financial requirements in order to meet these growing demands. However, we will not go into debt to do so. Ministry debt, we believe, is against the spirit and the letter of the New Testament. Instead, we call upon the Lord in importunate prayer to provide what we need. And the Lord knows exactly what that is, so we continually, daily go to Him to supply those needs. We look to our Lord who owns “the cattle on a thousand hills” (Psa. 50:10), and we place our trust in Him alone to provide the necessary finances for us to continue operating in order that we may help saturate the world with the gospel.

Our vision is grand and glorious, admittedly so, but it is no more ambitious than what the Lord Himself revealed to us through His Word: “For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:9). It that hope and promise that sustains us, that motivate us, that encourages us. We know unflinchingly that God will prevail, and it is our highest honor and calling to proclaim that victorious message to the world, as He provides us with the resources necessary to continue.

If the Lord so leads you to support us financially, we are grateful for your contribution and recognize that is the Lord using you to help us continue. You may make your

Faith-Based

This means we spend no time soliciting donations or raising money and at no time do we ever sell any resource, teaching, or publication. We know that the Lord will provide and we hold to a strict theology of financial principles.

Partner With Us

If you have benefited from our ministry and publications and would desire to see others equally blessed, please consider the many needy souls in countries like India, Philippines, Nepal, Nigeria, Romania, Slovenia, Russia, Turkey, and Lebanon who have reached out to us with the Macedonian call, appealing to us to provide Christian publications to feed their hungry souls. Also consider the many pastors who need reference books, study tools, and devotional literature to increase their heart and head knowledge of Jesus Christ. As you soberly consider our brothers and sisters and their spiritual needs, here are six practical ways you can help us as we seek to address those needs and endeavor to bless as many saints at home and abroad as the Lord permits:

  • Invite FLP/FLM to your church to give a power-point presentation and to distribute free books.
  • Evangelize with us locally in the United States.
  • Volunteer for a short-term mission, help us translate Christ-centered literature, or assist us in some other way by using your God-given skills.
  • Share our ministry work with others via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email. etc.
  • Pray for FLM to fulfill our vision of worldwide literature saturation: “For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:9).
  • View, download, and order literature online from FirstLove Publications.

Since we are and remain a faith ministry, we rely entirely upon God’s faithfulness and those individuals He leads to support us in each of the above ways. We gratefully receive support from those who freely desire to give. Please note that all of our donations go toward the production and distribution of free literature in the United States and around the world. We especially seek to provide Christ-centered resources to pastors and believers in developing countries, those who could not otherwise afford the gospel message in printed form.

Preaching Christ across the nations with gospel mission

let’s go

“Depend on it. God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply. He is too wise a God to frustrate His purposes for lack of funds, and He can just as easily supply them ahead of time as afterwards, and He much prefers doing so.” -Hudson Taylor


 

 

What makes us different


  • We are a faith ministry. We simply trust God will continue to provide the necessary people, resources, and funds needed for His own people, just as He has done so far.
  • We emphasize ministry to pastors and church leaders. The apostle Paul tells us our Lord gave to His Church apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers for this reason: “the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ” (Eph. 4:12). We desire to fully equip those people around the world, those individuals whom God has called, to be prepared in order so that they can equip their flocks.
  • We emphasize evangelistic outreach at home. The call to preach the gospel is not just reserved for missionaries in distant regions. We are all called to share the good news with our neighbors. If the second greatest commandment is to, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” there is no better to express that love than to tell them the truth about sin and repentance.
  • We cultivate long-lasting relationships. We do not simply show up somewhere in the world, hold a conference, and never return. Instead, we foster lasting relationships with churches around the world, which is why we currently conduct annual conferences, seminars, and evangelistic outreach in five countries worldwide on three different continents. We build lasting relationships that encourage believers at home and abroad so that God’s kingdom is built up globally for His honor and glory.

“Our desire is that the Holy Spirit, who is the Divine Revealer and Interpreter of Christ and His truth, may impart to your hearts a sober, spiritual and sanctifying receptivity of His Word — abasing self, and exalting Christ! Our intention is to unfold and illustrate the Lord Jesus Christ in the relation in which He stands to His people — to unveil His glory, beauty, and fullness— to define the close bond of union that unites to Him all His people — and to bring you into a more personal realization of what Christ is to you, and of what you are to Christ.” – Octavius Winslow

Statement of Faith
  • FirstLove Publications is a non-denominational, Bible teaching, Christ-centered ministry.

  • We believe that justification is an act of God, based solely on the imputed righteousness and atoning death of Jesus Christ, and to be “born again” by the power of the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary for salvation. That salvation is by grace alone through faith in Christ alone, and not by works.
  • We believe in the Lordship of Christ over His church; the observance of the ordinances of baptism by immersion for believers and the Lord’s Supper.

“If religious biblical books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country, I do not know what is going to become of us as a nation. If truth is not spread, then error will be. If God and His Word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain attention and dominate. If evangelical books do not reach every town and village, the pages of corrupt and immoral literature will. If the power of the gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of this land, anarchy and tyranny, depravity and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without relief or end.” – Daniel Webster

“God’s plan is there shall be none of self and all of Christ. The very people who are doing the most for God in saving souls, in mission work, in the care of orphans, are those who are working on short supplies of strength, of money, of talents, of advantages, and are kept in a position of living by faith and taking from God, day by day both physical and spiritual supplies. This is the way God succeeds and gains conquests over His own people, and over the unbelief of those who look on His providences.” – George Muller

“Faith does not operate in the realm of the possible. There is no glory for God in that which is humanly possible. Faith begins where man’s power ends.” – George Muller

“God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply.” – Hudson Taylor
