Our Services

What are services like?
Church should be an enjoyable experience, so our services are energetic and upbeat. We've designed our services with music that's inspiring and meaningful, messages that speak true-to-life, and an environment that is comfortable. As a matter of fact, this may not be what you would expect when you enter an Apostolic church on Sunday; our goal here at First Church is to help you feel at home.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You may be looking to find a place to develop life-long friendships and relationships; or for a relevant message addressing concerns in your life; or maybe you are looking for a church that has ministries for everyone in your family. Whatever you are looking for, we believe we can be an encouragement to you and your entire family no matter where you are in life's journey. We want to let you know what you can expect when you join us.

Donovan Burkett

In October of 1999, Donovan Burkett received the call from God to leave his home of Houston and move to Fort Worth with his wife and daughter to build a church. First Church of Fort Worth held its first service on a Sunday in July in a “small white church” in Benbrook, TX with a total of 7 people in attendance. Within a year the “small white church” was filled to capacity with 50 members. Lead Pastor Burkett anticipated the need for a larger space to hold the vision that God had given him for First Church and began to pray. A desire was born of God in Lead Pastor Burkett’s heart to establish ‘Preaching Points’ throughout Fort Worth and the surrounding suburbs. First Church operates with a 5-fold ministry and each of our ‘Preaching Points and Connect Points’ is a direct result of this proper aligning of ministry.
