WHO ARE DISCIPLES?
We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.”
-Disciples of Christ Identity Statement
First Christian Church celebrates being a congregation in covenant partnership with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
As Disciples of Christ, we have no creed. We take our faith seriously, and we encourage each and every person to weigh scripture and tradition, reason and experience and then act out their faith with compassion and justice.
We trust you to travel your own faith journey and to read, study and grow on your own terms. And, we trust Jesus to show us truth and goodness.
When Jesus was asked what mattered most, he said to love God and love others. Everything he tells his disciples is rooted in this love. That’s why we focus on how to love God and our neighbor. We engage in study, worship, prayer and service.
From gathering backpacks and school supplies for community children in need to serving dinners at the Gathering Place; from gleaning excess vegetables at Evans Orchard to providing blankets through Church World Services; our congregation is focused on making the world a better place.
We practice unity and inclusion at the Lord’s Table. We believe in the communion table as an extension of God’s love – inclusive of everyone. We celebrate communion every Sunday and we welcome everyone to celebrate with us. Likewise, we hope that you’ll join us in our other endeavors. Join our Sunday School classes, our small groups, volunteer with our kids or just come and share a meal or a board game. We want you to be a part of the family.
We Celebrate Our Heritage
First Christian Church is a congregation deeply connected to the Disciples of Christ history. Our church was once served by one of the original founders of the DOC movement, Barton Warren Stone. In 2016, we celebrated 200 years of faithful discipleship and service to the Georgetown community and the Kentucky Region.
Our practices, our beliefs, our history, and our people are continually shaping who we are. We are more than an institution or denomination; we are a movement for God’s peace, justice, and love.
