Our Mission Statement

The mission of First Christian Church, Fort Smith, Arkansas is to lift up Jesus the Christ by:

  • Enabling spiritual growth and deepening our commitment, both individually and corporately;
  • Developing a church family/community that is accepting and encouraging;
  • Serving our community and the world through spiritual, physical, and emotional support; and
  • Reaching out in His name to the unchurched in our community.

Our Congregation

First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of Fort Smith is one of 4,105 Disciples congregations in the U.S. and Canada. The congregation is autonomous (self-governing). We call our own ministers, hold title to the property, and determine how all money is spent, etc. Located in the 3600 block of both Free Ferry and Rogers, we have access from both streets and parking adjacent to both thoroughfares. Our facilities are in a campus setting with a total of five buildings and six acres of land. We do not think of ourselves as the "only Christians" but as "Christians only."

 Our Programs

We have eight administrative ministries that meet regularly to plan and carry out the on-going programs and activities of the congregation. They are: Christian Education, Community Outreach, Church Growth, Membership, Property, Worship, World Outreach, and Stewardship.
