Jesus is the Son of God and the head of the church. We work to reflect His characteristics in our church culture and His priorities in our church work, week in and week out. Through prayer, Bible study & guidance by the Holy Spirit, decisions are made to help people find & follow Jesus. No decision is made without careful consideration to ensure it's biblically in alignment.
First Christian Church is an Elder led church. As outlined in 1 Timothy and Titus, the Elders are a group of men who lead and protect the church. They are appointed to maintain accountability, and to encourage and work with the staff to carry out the vision and mission of the church.
The next level of leadership is the staff. These men and women carry out the day-to-day work of the church. More specifically, the directors provide decision making and leadership to the staff as they prepare for weekend services, trips, events, missional work, small groups, etc. The staff is made up of both full and part-time staff.
