ABOUT US

Loving - Transforming - Thriving - Always

 

At First Christian Church, we seek to live out on a daily basis the two greatest commandments given by our Lord Jesus Christ: Love God and Love People (Matthew 22:37-39).

 

Because loving God and loving others so often goes against the grain of our sinful nature, we depend upon the supernatural transformation of our hearts and lives made possible by the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:15-17). Through faith in Him as Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9-10), we die to our old selves and are raised up to new life in baptism (Romans 6:3-4). As we grow in our walk with Him, God continues to transform our lives more and more into the image of the One who saves us (1 John 2:5-6).

 

The greatest indicator of transformation is our love for others. The more we love others as Christ loves us the brighter His light shines in the darkness of this broken world. We want others to discover through what they see in us the difference Jesus can make in their lives (Philippians 2:15).

 

New life in Christ enables us to thrive in this world because, in Him, we find joy, peace, and purpose. His is the best life (John 10:10). We are not promised an easy life but we are not alone, He is with us (Matthew 28:20).  

 

To discover more about loving – transforming – thriving – always, we would love to have you join us this Sunday - in person or online.

ELDERS

 

An elder must live a blameless life. He must be faithful to his wife, and his children must be believers who don't have a reputation for being wild or rebellious. A church leader is a manager of God's household, so he must live a blamelss life. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered; he must not be a heav drinker, violent, or dishonest with money. Rather, he must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must love what is good. He must live wisely and be just. He must live a devout and disciplined life. He must have a strong belief in the trustworthy message he was taught; then he will be able to encourage others with wholesome teaching and show those who oppose it where they are wrong Titus 1:6-9
