Our Mission

We are one of some 4500 congregations in the United States known as The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  We were established on the American Frontier in the early 1800s and grew with the nation making our contribution to its rich heritage.

Founded on the belief that all Christians are united in Christ, this fellowship, throughout its history has promoted greater cooperation among the churches.  The name “Christian Church” is a universal biblical name (Acts 22:26) with “disciples” in parenthesis designating our particular fellowship of congregations.

First Christian Church Marysville has been in existence since 1902 and has been at its current location all of its lifetime.  Our hope and prayer for the future is that we might continue in ministry to this community, sharing the love of Christ.

What We Believe

We are a fellowship of believers whose only creed is Jesus Christ.  We value freedom and diversity of beliefs and doctrines and find our unity in Christ as Lord.

Membership in the church is based upon a personal confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

The acceptance is then expressed in an act of obedience as the believer is baptized into the Kingdom of God.

The Lord’s supper is observed every Sunday, celebrating the victory of Christ over sin, guilt, and death.

The word of God is faithfully proclaimed and is constantly at the center of our life as a family.

We believe in the “priesthood of all believers”, and point each Christian to his or her own path of Christian service.  We hold that every person is a child of God.

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
