What We Believe

A common misconception is that all churches believe and preach the same thing. Unfortunately that isn't the case. In a world that is greatly divided spiritually it is very important to know just exactly what a church believes and practices.

We welcome the opportunity to sit with you and discuss these core beliefs in depth.

We Believe...

...that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

...that the entire Bible (Old and New Testament) is the inspired Word of God and is completely trustworthy and useful for us today. (2 Timothy 3:16-17

...that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

...that forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord by believing in Him, repenting of their sins, confessing their faith, and being baptized into Jesus Christ. (John 3:16; Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-4)

...that the church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to spread the good news of Jesus Christ and to build one another up in love. (Matthew 28:19-20; Ephesians 4:15-16)

...that Jesus Christ will one day return for His church and will reign forever as King of kings and Lord of lords. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

If you would like to know more about what it means to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, or if you are ready to do that, please visit us or contact the church office. We are excited about helping you with the most important decision you will ever make.

Those who are already immersed believers are welcomed to become members at First Christian Church on the statement of their faith in Christ, their commitment to Him as immersed believers, and their desire to serve Him through our congregation.
