First Christian Church of Paris, Paris, IL - Senior Minister

First Christian Church

First Christian Church, Paris, Il, is a conservative, biblically-based church, completely autonomous in its beliefs, practices, and daily activities. After 27 years of ministry, our previous Senior Minister retired with the blessings of the congregation. While we are in a time of transition and change, our unity, our faith in God, and our desire to do His work as we see it, has in no way faltered. Paris is a rural farming community which has seen notable economic growth in recent years. First Christian Church is a very active and community-oriented church that hopes to continue and grow even more in the coming years, having recently acquired a property that we plan to use as a Christian youth, family, and community Center. We are a very close, loving, and family-oriented church.
