Who We Are
First Christian Church is part of a worldwide movement of Christians who, from the early 1800's have sought unity in the body of Christ through a plea to follow the New Testament model of faith and practice. Our congregation is independent of any denomination, but one with others in Christ. We make no claim to be the only Christians, just Christians only. Our main goals are to bring glory to God and to bring the lost to Christ. Everything we do must help us to fulfill one of these goals. Since 1938, First Christian Church has served this community, always attempting to shine the light of Christ in truth and love.

, if so inclined, one could do any of the following: dine at the Canary Cottage, meet a friend over a nickel coke at the Phoenix Drug, catch a train to anyplace at the Union Station, take in a ball game at Stoll Field, or go dancing at Joyland. Worship service at service at First Christian Church was also an option; the best option. Only the last named activity is still possible, as all of these other institutions have long since vanished. Fifty years from now, if we continue to do God's will, it will still be possible to attend services at First Church.
