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!

    We are looking for a venue to have our wedding. Helen Bailey suggested we contact you since our church, orangethorpe Christian church may have a scheduleing conflict for our special day. We were wanting to come take a look at the sanctuary and reception area. Is it possible to visit Saturday or Sunday?
    Thank you for your time.

    A deep thank you to all the great friends and members of this fine church. The cards, presents and visits to our dear Lilly has made her medical emergency much more tolerable. Truly, a church that “has left the building” indeed! Peace and grace be upon you all!

  4. Linda R. Johnen says:

    I truly enjoy attending church here. I have been a long time member and all my spiritual needs have been addressed with much love, encouragement, and thoughtfulness.

  5. Gale,

    Thank you for sharing your good news with us. God is good! We’re gratified to know we provided a comforting place and presence for you at such a challenging time in your life and in your family’s life. We pray you continue to carry an awareness of God’s steadfast love and faithfulness. Hope to see you again soon!

  6. Gale Green says:

    I would like to thank your congregation for praying for my daughter Melissa. I was in Fullerton last Nov. and your pastor prayed with me after services and asked if he could share my prayer concern. I very much apprecaited his time, I am a pastor and i know how precious Sunday morning time can be, as my tears began to flow I remembered that pastors need prayers too.

    As of last month I wanted you all to know prayers have brought a miracle, her tumor has shrunk, and while she still has some problems b/c of the chemo, radiation, steroids, we are so hopeful that she will fully recover someday in the near future. Doctors are puzzled, don’t understand it; she was considered a “hopeless case”.We know it is the power of prayer and testify to that end. We also know that with God, nothing is ever hopeless. Thanks for your prayers. Your pastor was a special blessing to me that Sunday, thank you for your compassion and caring.
