Employment

Working at The Firs is far more than just a job. It's living and working within a community of believers committed to serving God, our guests, and each other as we fulfill our mission. If your skills and talents include a commitment to Christ and you are passionate about investing in people's lives, The Firs may have a position for you!

Mission Statement:

The Firs serves the local church and community by drawing groups and individuals to a camp and retreat setting where they will experience the Biblical message of Jesus through instruction, creative activities and significant relationships, resulting in changed lives.

Doctrinal Statement:

  • We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Tim.3:16-7; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; 1 Cor. 2:13)

  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  (Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14)

  • We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection and His ascension to the right hand of the Father. We believe in His personal, visible return to earth in righteousness and glory to consummate His salvation and His judgment. (Jn. 1:1-2; Rom. 3:21-26; 1 Thess. 4:13-18)

  • We believe that, because of the fall of humanity with the resulting sinful state and subsequent separation from God, there is the necessity of new birth, in salvation by faith in Jesus Christ alone.  (Rom. 3:23; 6:23; Eph. 2:8-10; John 1:12)

  • We believe that God has called Christians to a life of sanctification through the Holy Spirit and to a life fully committed to the will of God in Christ.  (1 Pet. 1:14-16; Titus 2:11-14)

  • We believe in the Christian church as the one universal body of Christ. Christ is the head of His church and calls God’s redeemed people to be set apart for His purposes in the world. (Eph. 1:22-23; 5:25-30; I Peter 1:9-10)

  • We believe in the institution of marriage defined in Scripture as the covenantal union between one man and one woman.  We believe that the Christian standard is faithfulness within that marriage covenant and abstinence outside of it.  (Gen. 2:24; Matt. 19:5-6; Eph. 5:31-33) 

  • We believe that every person is created in the image of God, that human sexuality reflects that image in terms of intimate love, communication and fellowship. We believe that God created humankind as two distinct sexes, male and female.  (Gen. 1:27; Matt. 19:4-6; Mk. 10:6-8)
