    Welcome to First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Carbondale. The life and teachings of Jesus guide us, his death reminds us that our faith demands lots from us, and his resurrection shows us that the oppressive powers of this world cannot stop him. God’s law and the courage of the Hebrew prophets are part of our foundation, too.

    We’ve been a faith community in Carbondale since 1862. FCC has grown to follow Jesus’ example of extravagant hospitality. We celebrate the diversity of God’s creation by welcoming rich and poor and in between, all genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, religious backgrounds, and physical abilities. We hope you’ll add the richness of how God created you to our church family. Together we can learn, worship, care, and change the world for Jesus!
