Welcome to First Christian Church of Sacramento! We are a fellowship of Christians who welcome seekers, value diversity, and find unity in our common commitment to Jesus Christ. We proclaim a faith whose roots are ancient, but whose application is as contemporary as the morning newspaper. Our mission is to invite all persons to find life and wholeness in Jesus Christ.
Our Pastor, Ted Firch, is a N. California native. He is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, and received his Masters of Divinity Degree from Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, California. Ted has been active in ministry for nearly 30 years. He is married to Rev. Vickie Firch and has two grown children, Bethany and Bart.
Our Church is part of a larger fellowship known as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Disciples, as we often call ourselves, have more than 3,800 congregations and 800,000 members in the United States and Canada.
We find our unity in one simple statement of faith, that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He is Savior and Lord. We emphasize a faith that is practical, and draws us into meaningful community. We seek to learn from our diversity under the guidance of the Bible. Our national leaders have characterized us as being "a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world."
