What Kind of Church is This?

 

Our Heritage

This congregation is not part of any formal denominational structure or organization. We are an independent congregation of Christ followers. The term “Christian” in our name is meant to identify us as followers of Jesus, not to separate us from anyone else who is seeking to follow and obey Jesus alone as Savior and Lord. It indicates, not a claim to be the only Christians, but simply a desire to be identified with Jesus rather than any human denomination, leader, practice or tradition.
 
Our roots lie in the Restoration or Stone-Campbell Movement, which affirms the New Testament as the standard for faith and practice and seeks to restore New Testament Christianity. One of our key mottos has been, “In essentials unity; in non-essentials liberty; in all things love.”
 

Our Local History

(from the History of First Christian Church of Aurora, Illinois, at the 75th Anniversary in 1988)
The earliest known beginnings of First Christian Church in Aurora date back to April 3, 1847, “at a meeting held at the school house in West Aurora.” Then in 1913, several families officially came togeher and formed a permanent congregational organization. 
 
Over the next several decades, FCC had seasons of ups and downs. But today, FCC is poised for growth and focused on the future.
