NO CREED BUT CHRIST
First Christian Church exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ, teaching people to follow in His footsteps and trust in His promises.
NO BOOK BUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is God's inspired Word to the church and the world. It is our trustworthy guide to the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.
NO LAW BUT LOVE
Ultimately, the teachings of Jesus Christ can be summed up in one word: Love. Jesus told His followers that the two great commandments of God are to love the Lord with all our heart and to love our neighbors as ourselves.
