First Community Church (FCC) is a congregation formed by many theological traditions. The same is true of the United Church of Christ (UCC). FCC and the UCC are bodies where intellectual freedom and the great liberating principles of the Church are cherished. There is no one creed that defines us, but there are affirmations of faith that hold us together in our respective journeys.
In 1949 a group of persons from 14 denominational backgrounds banded together to form a new non-denominational church. FCC soon became known for its freedom in Christian thought and its innovative programming. FCC affiliated with the Congregational Christian churches in 1955. This group merged with the Evangelical and Reformed Church in 1957, forming the United Church of Christ (UCC).
We come from many faith backgrounds in the belief that we can worship and serve as one. We invite anyone seeking a progressive Christian congregation to come and journey with us. All are TRULY welcome!
