What We Believe

First Christian Church is a part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. This statement is more than words or simply a profession of faith. It is the only question we ask when one wishes to affiliate with First Christian. There are no other creeds or confessions that act as a test of faith.

We believe that the Lord’s Table is open and inclusive.

Communion, celebrated weekly, is open to all who confess Jesus as the Christ. Around the table is a constant reminder that Jesus gave his life for us.

We believe in the ministry of all believers.

While there are ministers on the staff, each member and participant of the church has gifts. We seek to use our gifts together, as the body of Christ.

We believe in the love of unity.

We believe that we are to work together as denominations to be the witnesses of Christ. In short, we believe that we are Christians only and not the only Christians.

We believe in the justice of God.

We are called to love and serve all of God’s people. We serve the marginalized and distressed in our community and around the world.
