Welcome to the website for the First Christian Church of Henderson, Kentucky! We are the only Disciples of Christ congregation in Henderson.
We are part of “a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.”
Our mission statement is “We are a Table people–transformed by its grace, living in its light, and sent in service to others.
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) began when separate but similar groups in Kentucky, Ohio and southwest Pennsylvania came together at a meeting in Lexington, Kentucky on New Years Day in 1832. Today, the Disciples of Christ number over 700,000 making us the largest Christian denomination to be born on the rugged American soil.
Our congregation was established in Henderson in 1844 and the first church was built in 1854. Henderson First Christian Church celebrates more than 150 years of ministry in the Henderson Community and we invite you to join us in this spirited journey.
