about us

We believe:

The way to God's good life is through Jesus Christ.
We accept God's grace and forgiveness through affirmation of faith and baptism in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Christ helps us achieve success in life by His presence in us.
We cannot live positive, fruitful lives on our own strength, so Christ transforms our lives from within by the Holy Spirit at work in us.

The Bible is the written Word of God, and as a whole, is the basis for all we believe.
Scripture is the foundation that informs and guides our faith, belief, and practice.

Our church takes seriously the "priesthood of all believers."
All Christians have direct access to God and are free to prayerfully discern the Bible for themselves.

The Lord's Supper (Holy Communion) focuses our worship on the saving act of Jesus on the cross.
The central act of our worship is communion, a weekly remembrance of the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross to free us from our sin.

The equality of men and women before God.
No person should be barred from serving Christ's church because of race or gender. Women serve equally with men in our congregational life.

From Our Pastor:

On behalf of myself, my family and all the faith community at First Christian, I welcome you to join us at First Christian Church of Carlsbad.
