First Christian Church, (Disciples of Christ) is located in central Florida four miles east of Wildwood at 6900 E. CR 468. Wildwood is where I-75 (to Tampa) splits with the beginning of the Florida Turnpike to Orlando, Disney World, Epcot and Sea World.
First Christian Church (formerly Continental Christian Church) had its first worship on September 12, 1999, with just 12 people. (The same number our Lord started his church). Our membership is made up mostly of retired seniors who come from many different church traditions. We are very active in outreach as well as caring for those who hurt in our community. The theme of our church is, “Bringing other to have an encounter with Christ.”
We recently moved into our new building. We have a state-of-the art sound and video system. Our music ministry is excellent with piano and organ providing worshipful music each Sunday. Our traditional worship blends in beautifully with many other denominations. We celebrate the partaking of The Lord’s Supper every Sunday. We know how to laugh and enjoy one another and we know how to cry when one of our people is hurting.
Enjoy visiting with us through this web site and hopefully you will visit with us in person. Without a doubt, our members are among the most friendly people you will ever meet. We invite you to visit with us and see for yourself.
