Core Values

Embrace Community

First Christian Church is a place for people to come together and develop authentic relationships with others. We strive to create an environment where people from all walks of life and stages of faith can engage in Christ-centered community and grow together.

Exalt Christ

In a world overloaded with information, but starving for meaning - we exalt Jesus Christ who said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Engage God's Word

We teach that the Bible, not culture or popular opinion, is the source of eternal objective truth. We study the Bible as God's Word to us: inspired, living and active. We aspire to live it out in our everyday lives.

Encourage Spiritual Growth

Jesus said, "Come follow me." Christianity is a life style of following Jesus as Lord. We continually encourage people to take their next steps in following Him,

Core Beliefs

We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, the way, the truth and the life.

We believe that the Bible is God's Holy inspired Word.
