A warm welcome to you! Whether you are new to Owensboro, looking for a new church, or thinking about giving church another shot, we would love for you to visit with us. We believe that Christ welcomes and values all people no matter who you are. We are not a church that has all the answers and we approach faith as a lifelong journey, not a means to an end. Our hope is that you will find First Christian to be a place where you can worship, grow in faith, use your gifts to serve the community, and forge vital, life-giving relationships. Here is some more information that you might find helpful as you consider making a visit and we invite you to contact one of our ministers if you have any questions. We would welcome the opportunity to connect with you by phone, email, or over a cup of coffee.

Due to a fire on March 18, 2013, our services are temporarily being held at Third Baptist Church at 527 Allen Street. The phone number remains the same, 270-684-8879.
