Our Story

Guiding believers into God's presence

Craig started First15 in 2015, out of a desire to guide believers of all backgrounds into a daily experience with God’s presence. Craig sensed a longing in God’s heart for his people to be about relationship – real, restored relationship with him – that above all else, he simply wanted the hearts of his people. So Craig started praying, dreaming, and writing. And the idea of helping people spend the first fifteen minutes of their day focusing on nothing else but growing in their relationship with God was born. That if we as a people would worship, read, and pray at the beginning of every day, everything could change for the better.

Statement of Faith

One of the earliest declarations of faith in Christian history is the “Apostle’s Creed.” Forms of it are used today by Catholics, Anglicans, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Methodists, and many non-denominational churches. Its name comes from the early tradition that each of the twelve apostles dictated part of it after Pentecost. As a result, the statement is traditionally divided into twelve articles. Our ministry affirms each assertion which can be viewed by clicking the button below.

More than a devotional

How we're different

A growing relationship with God comes when you experience Him daily. Christians know the importance of a daily quiet time consisting of Bible reading and prayer, yet many struggle with finding a devotional resource that is both easy to understand and relatable to daily life. We write new devotionals each day consisting of Scripture, reflection, prayer, musical worship, and a call to action. Thousands of readers each month use our content to discover God in a deeper way, and it’s changed their lives.
