First Christian Church of Kingsport

  • First Christian Church was founded as a part of the Stone-Campbell movment of the early 1800's.   This "Restoration Movement" had the goal of uniting Christians on the Bible and the Bible alone.   To that end we operate under these ideals:
  • We have no creed but Christ
  • We have no authoritative book but the Bible
  • We strive to be Christians only, but certainly not the only Christians
  • We strive to live by the tenants of one of the early church fathers:  

              In matters of faith, unity

              In matters of opinion, liberty

              In all things, love
