The First Christian Church of Olathe is progressive in viewpoint and
policy. We are a freedom-loving body of people, seeking to be Christian
in all that we say and do. There is no attempt to dictate in Biblical
interpretation or in theological thought. In such matters members have
the freedom and responsibility of private judgment.
Every member is encouraged to live by a discipleís way of life. We
strive to encourage understanding and cooperation among ourselves and
all Christian believers. We seek to show a religious faith that is
intelligent, rational, practical, and vital to life in the world.
People with varying beliefs and religious backgrounds find meaningful
fellowship and opportunities for service to God in the First Christian
Church of Olathe.

We Invite You To Ö
The Lordís Supper
In keeping with the historical
practice of early Christians, the Lordís Supper is served every Sunday.
It is not presented as an obligation, but as a spiritual opportunity.
It is a matter of personal conscience and decision as to whether or not
one wishes to partake. The Lordís Supper is open to all who believe in
Christ and desire to remember Him in this manner.
Be a Part of the Family
We are a church united by a common
faith. Our life together is rich with worship, Bible studies,
fellowship times, and outreach projects. We carry a concern for each
other and for the world. We believe that First Christian is best
experienced by being a part of the family, joining in with others in the
many activities of the faith.

There are two ways of becoming a
member of the First Christian Church. One is by public confession of
faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior followed by Baptism.

membership from another congregation.
An invitation is extended at the
close of every service of worship. Those wishing to unite with the
congregation may come forward and be accepted in Christian fellowship
