Welcome

If you're a local, you've passed us dozens of times. You know...the church with the big red doors on Broadway?
If you're new to America's Hometown you should check us out. (We're only a stones throw away from Downtown)
This longstanding building, located in historic Hannibal hosts a beautiful Disciples church
that's been around for over 175 years.

But, while the setting, and the building and the history are great, they're not what makes
First Christian Church worth visiting.
It's the people.
It's how God is active and real in their lives.
It's how God's Spirit pulls them together into a unique, warm, authentic family.
Our passion is our community - our neighbors - meeting needs wherever and whenever we can,
connecting people to God and to each other.

Core Beliefs

  • Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God, and offers saving grace to all.
  • All persons are God's Children.
  • Open Communion. The Lord's Supper, or Communion is celebrated in weekly worship. It is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ.
  • Freedom of Belief. Disciples are called together around one essential faith: belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Persons are free to follow their consciences guided by the Bible, the Holy Spirit study and prayer, and are expected to extend that freedom to others. "In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity".
  • Baptism by immersion. In baptism the old self-centerd life is set aside and a new life of trust in God begins. Although Disciples practice baptism by immersion, other baptism traditions are honored.
  • Belief in the oneness of the church. All Christians are called to be one in Christ and to seek opportunities for common witness and service.
  • The ministry of all believers. Both ministers and lay persons lead in worship, service and spiritual growth.
