Who We Are

"For no one can lay any other foundation than the one we already have – Jesus Christ.” - 1 Corinthians 3:11

At First Christian, you matter, and you are welcome here.  We invite you to experience community, get help, make friends and celebrate life.  No matter where you are in your spiritual journey – no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve done – we want you to know that you are known, valued, and loved.

We have a rich history of helping people find their way back to God through a growing relationship with Jesus. From our humble beginnings in 1866, we continue to be fortunate enough to be part of a church family who care about people and our community.  We are a church that is grateful for the opportunities God has given us to care about people, care for our community, and care for each other.  All of this gets expressed when we take the challenge of transforming our community by loving God and loving our neighbors.
