A lively, thoughtful, caring community committed to respecting diversity & encouraging each person to come to know God or “something deeper” in his or her own way.

Welcome to First Christian Church of Colorado Springs

We have a strong commitment to children and youth, we seek to practice “radical hospitality” and to accept folks wherever they are on life’s journey. You’ll never be told what you "have to" believe, and, most important, everyone is treated with respect and dignity; no one is second-class and all are truly welcome!

We are part of a whole movement of Christians – the Disciples of Christ – who seek to embody true community, deep spirituality, and a passion for justice. Learn more about our movement nationally and internationally at www.disciples.organd more about our "wider church family" in the four-state Central Rocky Mountain region. 

On Sundays, enter through ANY door; on weekdays, use the north parking lot door (under the blue canopy)

A Message From our Senior Pastor

17th century French mathematician Blaise Pascal said that every human being has a "God-shaped hole" in the heart that is seeking to be filled.  Here at First Christian Church we want to joyfully help you find how God is offering you purpose, meaning, and a connection with something larger than your own life.  Check us out!
