Welcome to First Christian Church Melbourne!

You are invited to join us in Christ’s ministry.

Come and worship with us, sing glorious songs of praise, pray to our Holy Father, and let the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ enter your soul. All are welcome. God calls all His children to enter His gates with thanksgiving in their hearts. There is a seat reserved for you. If you’re not able to join us in person, we would love to have you with us virtually. We live stream to Facebook every Sunday morning. Whichever method you choose to join us, we’re glad you’re here.

If you missed one of our worship services, or you’d just like to listen to the message again, you can replay our previous live streams right here. And if you would like to help spread the Gospel message of God’s love and saving grace, feel free to share any of our videos by clicking on the “Share” icon in the upper right corner of the video.

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.
