First Christian Church was established in 1889 in a site located in downtown Amarillo. FCC moved to its current location in 1968. We’re proud of our long and stable history in this community. It’s a history that has long been entwined with the history of the city of Amarillo. The Christian Church, Disciples of Christ had it’s beginning on American soil in the early 1800’s as the Stone and Campbell movement. The Red Chalice with the X shaped cross of St. Andrew was adopted as the denomination’s logo to symbolize the centrality of the Lord’s Supper to Disciples. The St. Andrew cross represents our Scottish Presbyterian roots. Thomas and Alexander Campbell came from Scotland. Communion (the Lord’s Supper) is celebrated weekly during the worship service. Everyone who claims Jesus Christ as their Savior is invited to participate. Baptism is practiced by immersion.
