At First Christian Church, our mission is to build a loving community that follows Christ in order to reach the community that is all around us, both locally and globally. We are trying to do that by becoming the kind of church the Bible describes – a church with relevant teaching, God-honoring worship, honest friendships, continual prayer and compassionate love for people.
If you’d like to get to know First Christian Church better, we suggest joining us for one of our Sunday services, watching a message online or exploring the ways to get connected below. Contact us if you have questions or need help getting started.
