Sunday Services:We are an Open and Affirming congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) who strive to love God with our heart, mind, soul, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. All are welcome here, and yes, all means ALL!
Our early service meets in our sanctuary and offers in-depth Scripture study, prayer, and communion without any music.
Our blended formal service meets in the sanctuary and features praise choruses, a children’s moment, a choir anthem, a sermon, hymns, and communion.
“Come, you that are blessed by God, inherit the community prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Matthew 25:34-36
Established in 1905, our congregation has served the needs of others in the name of Jesus Christ consistently from its founding. From its earliest days, First Christian Church has sought to manifest the love of God by welcoming people as openly and freely as Christ welcomed them into his circle. Our congregation has always sought to make Christ’s love available in tangible ways to those most in need, locally, regionally, and globally!
If you hunger for deep intimacy with the One Who Has Always Loved You, we offer Bible study several times a week, special interest studies like our “12-Steps for Everyone” class, and two services every Sunday morning that will lift your spirits!
If you thirst for a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in your life, come hear the good news of Jesus Christ in a loving, accepting atmosphere. Whether you are new to the Christian message or have spent most of your life in church, you will feel at home here. No one who enters our doors will find judgment or condemnation. We strive to love those who Jesus loves, and we believe that includes everyone!
If you long for a way to serve others and live out the gospel mandate to love as Jesus loves, our congregation will help you find a ministry that fits your talents, gifts, and interests. Whether you want to feed the hungry of Fullerton on any Wednesday night, assist the homeless community, reach out to home-bound seniors in our city, care for the children of struggling families, or continue with volunteer efforts you’ve undertaken for years, we want to support you!
