Central to our faith is experiencing the presence of God through hearing scripture, proclaiming the Word, singing songs that center us in the reality of God and by sharing in the very presence of Christ at an open communion table. We worship weekly in an inter-generational setting, blending both contemporary and classic elements of worship together. From our worship experience we are sent out to follow our call to follow Christ in all aspects of our lives which are centered in prayer, study and service.  We hope that you will join us as God leads us forward.

We believe that the gospel invites us to embody the teachings of Jesus in our words and actions.

Learning in community helps us to grow in our faith.  We value diversity of thought, curiosity and asking questions.  The goal for our study in community is growth and not uniformity of thought.

God has given us all that we have and actively invites us to be good and generous stewards of those gifts.  We the spiritual practice of giving our financial resources and the sharing of our facility to meet physical and spiritual needs.

Prayer fosters our connection with God and helps us to remain grounded in faithful living.

Through weekly worship we gather in community to hear, proclaim and respond to God's word.  The  weekly practice helps us to connect with our community  and offer encouragement to one another in our shared ministry throughout our city during the week.

We can easily get beat up in the world and so we strive to cultivate a community where love, grace and forgiveness flourish.  We encourage open and honest communication tempered with a healthy respect for differing opinions.

Palm Sunday: Celebrating Renewal
Please plan to be with us as we celebrate Christ's Triumphal Entry into the city of Jerusalem at the beginning of Holy Week.  

I have ordered 60 palm branches for us to wave in celebration of our Savior as we celebrate Palm Sunday and the renewal we are experiencing at FCC EP, Sunday, April 2nd. Please pray with me for 60 people to fill our worship space in Carroll Hall that Sunday.  

Now is a great time to invite friends, past members who haven't attended for a while but have not settled in a church home, neighbors, family members, and anybody else you can think of to join us, and let them know God is doing a new thing (renewal) at First Christian Church El Paso. This is a time for us to celebrate renewal!!! We plan to have some fun activity kits for families with children too. Hosanna!!!!

What to expect 


This ministry team helps us to make meaningful connections to one another through service in our community.  We are intentional about blurring the line between care specifically for those in our faith community and out in the neighborhood, knowing that Christ is everywhere.

Part of supportive Christian community is caring for one another.  Our elders go on home bound and hospital visits to pray with and for those in our community who physically cannot be part of our worshiping community.  

FCC extends a wide welcome to everyone!  Hospitality is a big part of what we do on Sunday morning.  Volunteers do a variety of tasks from welcoming worshipers, to handing out bulletins, to providing breakfast snacks, to making making coffee, to preparing communion, to aiding in worship in a variety of ways.  We have sign up white boards outside the sanctuary for people to sign up where they feel gifted and called to serve. 

Each week we seek to provide meaningful worship by seeking ways for the entire community to share their gifts and make an offering to God.

FCC is a praying community.  We know that when life gets turned up-side-down and we feel like the bottom has fallen out, we need to know that we are not alone.  We believe that Christ is present in our suffering and we are called to be present with one another when we are suffering.  One way we offer spiritual help when we are in need is by praying with and for one another.  Once you submit your prayer request, it will go to the Elders in our congregation.  Prayer requests can remain confidential or can be included in our weekly intercessory prayer card.

All physical and mental emergencies should be directed to 9-1-1.
