welcome

We want to welcome you to Nixa First Assembly [NFA]!


We are a church family made up of ordinary people from all walks of life, connecting in our journey to know Jesus Christ.  Some are new to the journey, some have been Christ followers for many years, and some have not yet made the decision to accept Jesus as their Savior. No matter where you are on this journey called life, ALL are welcome at NFA!

We would love to have you stop by for a visit. Come casual or dressed up, or somewhere in between...whatever is comfortable to you. We are not about the clothes we wear. We are about who Jesus is and where we each fit into His plan!
