Take Your Next Step
We exist to introduce people to Jesus and lead them in their next step with Him.
We love people and are grateful for all of the steps people take to move closer to Jesus. Church is more than a service on the weekend. We’re here to help you connect to other people, build a strong family, and lead you in your next step with Jesus.
In 1889, a small group began meeting to study the Bible and pray for their friends and eventually took action to become one of the first churches in Longmont on July 5, 1891.
With a heart to serve the community and a desire to reach lost people, First Christian Church once again outgrew its facilities. The leadership began to plan for a larger building.
In 1965, a new church building was constructed. Throughout the years, additions and upgrades were made at Sixth and Coffman streets on the land acquired years earlier.
Having grown beyond the city block on Coffman Street, First Christian sought relocation. They moved to their current location on Highway 66 in 1991 as Rick Rusaw joined as Lead Pastor.
Growth once again necessitated additions to the building in 1995 and they began their transition from being primarily an “attractional” church to an externally focused church.
