What kind of church is First Christian Church?
We call ourselves Christians, just as the followers of Jesus did in Scripture (Acts 11:26). As Christians, we are those who follow Jesus Christ and who belong to Christ. We desire to be known by no other name than His name. Our church is affiliated with the Restoration Movement churches, but is not associated with any denomination in Christendom. Rather than identify with a denomination, we simply desire to be Christians only as we read in the Bible. Our church is known as an independent Christian Church.
We are a CHURCH. The word “church” comes from a Greek word that means “called out.” We are those called out to assemble before God. It is very important to recognize
that the church is not a building, but rather, the church is the people of God. While we often refer to buildings as churches, more accurately these are church buildings,
the places where churches (i.e., the people) gather.
We are a CHRISTIAN Church. This means that the church is Christ’s church. That is, it belongs to Christ. Christ is the head of the church (Ephesians 5:23) and as such,
He is the absolute authority of His church.
We are an INDEPENDENT Christian Church. The word “independent” means that we are not associated with any denomination and therefore are not bound by the rules and regulations
of any denominational authority. We practice a congregational form of church government, which means that our church family chooses its own leaders and makes its own decisions.
We strive to do this according to the pattern that we find in Scripture.
