About Us

First Christian Church of Morgantown is an independent New Testament Christian Church.  We are committed to the principles of our Christian Church heritage in the Restoration Movement.  We are a congregation independent of any control except God and His Word.  God has called us to preach His Word, & we want to be faithful to this high calling.  We call people to faith in Christ - faith that responds to his commands to repent, confesses our belief, immerses in Him, and continues to follow Him.
