About Us


Our Vision

Here at First Christian Church it is our vision that each person that attends will learn what it means to Know, Grow, and Sow. We want everyone to have the chance to Know our Savior Jesus Christ. Once you've had the chance to get to Know Him, we want to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus. As you grow, you will also be taught how to Sow what you've learned to others so they may Know, Grow, and Sow.

Our Story

Jesus and His apostles established the church approximately 2000 years ago. We believe that it is our responsibility to continue the work that was started with the original church. First Christian Church looks to be a city on a hill where the lost can be found and those who choose can be saved through Christ.
