First Christian Church is a part of the first truly American Christian Movement which began in the early 1800s.  The Christian Church began as a response to those who were moving away from the Bible as their ultimate source of authority.  We believe that the Bible is to be our ultimate authority for faith and practice.  We pattern our worship services after the New Testament model presented in the Holy Scriptures.

     The Christian Church is a unity movement. We believe that all those who follow the Word of God are Christian brothers and sisters.  One of our early slogans was "In essentials Unity, in nonessentials freedom, an in all things love".
