A movement for wholeness in a fragmented world

We invite you to join us on a journey of faith as we seek God’s presence and God’s guidance for our lives. We are a community of faithful seekers, bound together in the love and grace of the One who is our Creator, Sustainer and Redeemer. As children of God, we share in the abundant life that is ours through Jesus Christ, an inheritance that includes the gifts of the Spirit and the hope and the promise of a place in God’s kingdom. As followers of Christ we understand our calling to “do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with God” (Micah 6:8).

First Christian Church of Falls Church began our ministry on December 7, 1952. 125 dedicated Christians met in an Arlington lodge hall and committed their devotion, energies and stewardship to establishing a new congregation in Falls Church. Today, we are a vibrant, caring, growing congregation that continues to live out our faith in Falls Church and beyond. We are affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a denomination of almost one million members, who profess faith in Jesus Christ and seek, in every aspect of life together to follow God in paths of love, justice, and service.

First Christian Church sits on 7 acres of wooded and grassy land one half mile east of Seven Corners (Route 50) on Route 7. Located on a bustling thoroughfare with retail, apartments, and malls, First Christian Church lives in the midst of a plurality of settings. We are blessed with diverse neighbors from all over the world. Beautiful Lake Barcroft is behind us in a lush setting. We love the neighborhood we live in and continue to grow our relationships with our neighbors.One of our most vital ministries is “Safe Haven,” a drop-in day shelter for the homeless.

Active Sunday School classes, adult education programs, growing children and youth ministries, and Bible Studies occur weekly. We have a very strong music program, with a choir of 25-35. Our church is highly involved in a regional camp and conference program for children and youth during the summer months, and families are honored and supported through a variety of ministries.

All are welcome at First Christian, and we hope you will join us!
