Christian Church - Mishawaka, Indiana

First Christian Church of Mishawaka strives to fulfill a simple goal:

We want to be the place where ‘The Positive Power of Jesus Christ can change people’s lives."

We encourage those whose lives have been changed to go into our surrounding communities and have a positive effect on people who need the human touch of Jesus Christ today. The life of Jesus Christ has done more to promote positive change for our world for the better than any other person who has ever lived.

As members of the Christian Church we are called ‘Disciples of Christ’ – followers of this historical figure, the Son of the Living God and tasked to carry on His mission: Love God, and love your neighbor as yourself.

Worship with us each Sunday at 11:00 a.m.

First Christian is definitely not the biggest church in the Michiana community. We may not have every ‘bell and whistle’ known to man, but at First Christian Church lives are changed by Jesus Christ and hope is available to people living in a world where sometimes there is no hope.

Programs for youth are the focal point of our church, and yet we strive to never forget the needs of seniors.

If you are looking for a place to find: faith, hope and love while striving to live a better life – come home, to First Christian Church in Mishawaka.
