The Vision of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
is to be a nurturing family of faith
with joyful worship and compassionate outreach.
Disciples see themselves as a community of wholeness in a fragmented world.
FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF MELBOURNE is a congregation of THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH (DISCIPLES OF CHRIST).
We live by these words of St. Augustine:
In essentials unity,
in non-essentials liberty,
in all things love.

We have a very active, vibrant junior church program called FCCM KIDZ! The children gather in the sanctuary with everyone else to begin the Sunday worship, and then, after the call to worship, opening hymn, and invocation, they are excused to go to their "sanctuary" in the fellowship hall building for their special time. Children of all ages, four-year-olds through fifth graders, are invited to participate. It is a truly uplifting and exciting experience for all!
The children sing songs, say prayers, learn bible verses, experience bible stories, and make interesting crafts. FCCM KIDZ prepares our children for worship!
Reverend Page Foster, our Senior Minister,

Who are we?
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a body of approximately 800,000 Christian believers in some 3,700 congregations in the United States and Canada.
Our mission comes straight out of the New Testament part of the Bible. It's our mission to be and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, loving, witnessing and serving from our doorsteps to the ends of the earth.
We believe that God is calling us to be a faithful, growing church that demonstrates true community, deep Christian spirituality and a passion for justice.
In 1832, two American frontier religious movements came together. One, led by Barton Stone, called itself simply, "Christians." Thomas and Alexander Campbell's group was called "Disciples of Christ." One important belief back then and now is that people shouldn't be forced to put faith in creeds but only in Jesus Christ. Another strong belief is that God wants churches to be in unity instead of in pieces.
"I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples; baptize them in the name of the Father , the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age."
-Jesus ---Matthew 28:18 ff
We minister to the community through local services such as Habitat for Humanity, Sharing Center, Daily Bread, Souper Bowl, a partnership with Haiti and others. As the Christian Church, we have missions, schools, colleges, hospitals and care centers around the world.
As believers in Jesus Christ
we continue to grow by learning
and living the truth of God's word.
Being embraced by the Holy Spirit,
we go forth in Freedom, Unity and Love,
bringing people to faith in Jesus Christ,
baptizing them and showing people
of all ages the Glory of God.
