Bringing people to an ever-growing relationship with Jesus

It’s our passion, because of what God has done for us through His son Jesus Christ, that we be a church that is available to be used by God to carry out His mission of bringing more into a relationship with Him. We hope that if you choose to experience one of our worship services, an event, a small group, or if your child participates in one of our active kids or teen programs, that you will feel God’s love, that you will feel accepted and connected, and that you will sense an opportunity for you and your family to grow in your faith with us. We are certainly not perfect, but our heart and passion is for you and for this community to experience God’s perfect love.

Our History

In 1953, after several interested individuals responded to an article in the local newspaper, and following a two-week evangelistic meeting in which several people gave their lives to Christ – First Christian Church was born. Now in our fourth location, all necessitated by growth, an average of 250 people attend one of our two Sunday worship services. In 1981, Beardstown Christian Academy opened its doors with 21 students and one teacher. Today, BCA now has an enrollment of over 120 students and more than 15 teachers.
