DISCIPLES OF CHRIST
First Christian is part of the Christian Church Disciples of Christ. This denomination was founded in the 1800's as part of the Restoration Movement. At a time when people were moving to a new land while facing cultural, geographical, cultural, and language barriers communities found it very difficult to gather together for worship. Fleeing the factionalism created by formal creeds and confessions, from its inception, the Disciples of Christ has been a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world.
Today the Disciples of Christ and our sister denomination the United Church of Christ remain passionate about justice oriented mission that brings people together in communion, in mission, and in service. As such we celebrate an open table where all are welcome. That is why Disciples use a red chalice as their logo, to signify the centrality of communion in all that we do. Whatever our backgrounds or beliefs we can come around a common table and celebrate the boundless love of God for all people.
