The Jesus First Life

At Kennesaw First Baptist Church we are committed to leading people to ENGAGE, EXPERIENCE, and ENJOY the Jesus First life! The Jesus First life is not a slogan or marketing tool for us; it is our call and vision from God.

The Jesus First life is simply this: It is what Jesus called His disciples to experience. He did not call His disciples to put Him at the top of their “life pyramid.” Instead, Jesus invited us to ENGAGE and EXPERIENCE Him and His presence at the very core of our life.

The result of living the Jesus First life is joy. (Psalm 16:11) Therefore, we like to ask: “Do you want an enjoyable life?” If so, then why not join us in living for something that outlasts life? Why not live for Jesus? That’s the Jesus First life.
