Our Mission

First Christian Church is affiliated with the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ; a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. The historic and current mission of First Christian Church is: 

  • to be a faithful, growing church, that demonstrates true community, deep Christian spirituality, and a passion for justice;
  • to offer a place for spiritual discernment, growth in faith and hope; 
  • to bridge divides, encourage kindness, empathy, and love; and
  • to serve our community in any way that we can.

We affirm the uniqueness and worth of every person and welcome all persons to the life, worship and community of this congregation. We extend Christian hospitality to all. Our congregation offers a traditional worship service with the weekly celebration of the Lord’s Supper.
