First Christian Church is a congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a fellowship of 3,600 congregations throughout the U.S. and Canada, with over 650,000 members.
First Christian Church came into being in 1828 through the gathering of charter members who committed themselves to this vision of discipleship and unity under Christ. They had a charter to share the Good News of God’s love with the people of Wilmington and Clinton County, a ministry to which this congregation is still committed! As we approach our 3rd century of ministry, we pray our congregation will continue growing and serving God with grace and gratitude.
We are excited about what God has and is doing among us and want to share that with others...with you! It is our hope and prayer that you will find this to be a warm and accepting, challenging and faithful church that will feed your spirit and provide you with a place to love and serve the Lord!
