First Christian Church of Wood River logo


What We Believe

  • that Jesus is the one and only Son of God who died for our sins and rose from the dead. (1 Cor 15:1-8)
  • that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, both Old & New Testaments. (2 Tim 3:16)
  • that we can be forgiven of our sins and we can have the promise of eternal life if we trust in Christ as our Savior and Lord. (John 3:16)
  • that those wanting to accept Christ need to repent (be sorry) for their sins and turn to the Lord. We also believe that they need to confess their faith and be baptized by immersion into Him. (Rom 10:8-10; Acts 2:38)
  • that the church is the body of Christ on earth given power by the Holy Spirit. We also believe that the church exists to save those who are without Christ and build up those who belong to Him. (Eph 4:1-16)
  • that Jesus will come back one day and reign forever as the King of kings and Lord of lords (1 Thes 4:14-18)
