WHAT WE BELIEVE We want to be known as a church that is “Helping people Love God, and Love Others, by Following Jesus, and Making Jesus Known.” First Christian Church is affiliated with the independent Christian Churches and Churches of Christ. We believe the Bible is the inerrant and infallible Word of God. It is our only rule for faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We recognize that Christ is the head over all things to the church, and has delegated His authority to no man or group of men (Ephesians 1:22-23). Our plea is the unity of all believers (John 17:20-21). One of our mottos is In faith, unity; in opinions, liberty; and in all things, love.
We have no requirements for membership other than those given in the New Testament for becoming a Christian. These are confessing your faith in Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9-10), turning away from your sins through repentance (Luke 13:3), and baptism by immersion for the forgiveness of sins and gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38 and I Peter 3:21).
We do not claim to be the only Christians, but we are Christians only. We invite all who are like-minded to join our fellowship as we encourage each other on the road to heaven (Hebrews 10:23-25).
