What we are about at First Christian

Our Mission Statement

“Our vision is to provide a church in Wichita Falls where there is appreciation for differences in beliefs so that families can be united in Christ.”

“We will promote spiritual growth with intellectual challenges, emotional support through small group activities, and opportunities to serve one another in the larger community.”

…The Congregation

What are some core Disciple Values

Celebrating communion…

…every Sunday as a congregation. We practice unity and inclusion at the Lord’s Table for the sake of mission and for the sake of the world as the one family of God.

Believer’s baptism by immersion…

that is, a person makes the choice to follow God’s call rather than the choice being made for them as an infant. Baptism is understood to be the basis of membership in the one universal Church and also a mark that every person is called to serve God.

Partnering with other faith communities…

…to work for bringing about wholeness — healing and justice — in the world.

Studying and reading Scripture…

…for ourselves. We critically and thoughtfully study scripture, taking into account the history and background — the context –in which it was written.

Staying unified in covenant…

…as a witness to the world so even when we disagree we can still make room, welcoming all to the table as Christ has welcomed us. Our spiritual ancestors were fond of saying, “unity, not uniformity.”

Answering God’s call for justice…

…particularly in the areas of care for the Earth, the challenges for women and children, poverty and hunger and immigration. We seek to do this in cooperation with other people of faith. Some say we “get dirty for Jesus” as a way of conveying the hands-on mission orientation of many of our faith communities .
