What to Expect

What type of church is First Christian Church (FCC)?

We are a non-denominational church with people from all backgrounds (no church affiliation, Catholic, Baptist, Pentecostal, etc.). We do follow the teachings of the Bible and encourage developing a personal relationship with Jesus. Whether you've been attending church for years or this is your first time, you'll feel welcome at FCC.

When are services?

We have one service at 10:00am.

What should I wear?

We encourage you to wear what is normal for you. Come as you are!

How do I get there?

FCC is located across from Salem High School on 6th St.


What happens when I arrive?

You will be greeted upon entering our West and North doors. More greeters will be available to answer any questions, hand you a program, and find you the best seat available when you enter the Worship Center. While you wait, feel free to enjoy the music, read about upcoming events on the screens.

What is service like?

First of all, you won't be pointed out or made to feel uncomfortable in any way. You will have a meaningful, stress-free experience...and you'll have a lot of fun.

The service is about 60 minutes. The first 15 minutes of the service are important to help you tune into the worship through music. We'll have the words to each song up on the screen, so you can sing as much as you feel comfortable!

After a short welcome from one of our pastors, there is usually another song or we'll jump right into the day's teaching. Each message/sermon is 30-35 minutes long and takes Biblical principles and applies them to your life in some very real and practical ways. And we'll give you message notes with all of the Bible verses we will be reading and a pen so you can take notes. So, you can review what you learned later in the week.

What about my kid(s)?

We offer programs for children age 1-12th grade. We invite your kid(s) to join us in a fun, safe, clean, interactive environment where our team of trained volunteers creates an environment your child will want to come back to every week. To get more information about the specific age groups visit our Kids and Student Ministries Page.

Following Jesus at FCC

How do I become a Christian?

A Christian is someone that has made the decision to begin to take God seriously in their life. It starts by surrendering your life to Jesus and then beginning to follow Him. 

If you would like to know more about the details of the process, let us know!


Baptism is a way of identifying with Jesus and the church. It symbolize being born again and the second chance we find when we are part of a new community like the church.

Baptism is an important step for every believer. If you are a follower of Christ, but have never been baptized, then baptism is a great next step in your faith. If you would like to learn more about being baptized at FCC, please email us at fccsalem@yahoo.com

You Need A Place Where You Can Use Your Gifts

"Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you..." -- 1 Timothy 4:14
