Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family
Here's the deal, Ferguson Christian Church cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. FCC is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.
Ferguson Christian Church began its mission of loving God and loving people in 1949 when a small group met in a rented facility that was located on Church Street in Ferguson, Missouri. Their mission was to take the Word of God to the people of Ferguson. They were dedicated to spreading God’s Word both at home and abroad.
As the congregation grew they rented the Hereford House located at 303 N. Elizabeth Ave. The congregation fellowshipped there until 1957 when the first sanctuary was built. While still maintaining the Hereford House, church member Luke Perrine, and others, along with Jennings Christian Church, founded St. Louis Christian College. The college later purchased land and moved to its current location off Dunn Road.
In the tradition of its sixty-three year history, Ferguson Christian Church continues to expand and strengthen its ministry both at home and abroad. FCC sponsors many missionaries throughout the world in places such as Africa, Taiwan, Mexico and many others. They have not forgotten the need here at home and sponsor mission work in Ferguson and St. Louis City.
In 2011 a tornado destroyed the original sanctuary on Good Friday. Although the building was destroyed those who were there that evening know that they were protected by the Grace of God. Undaunted, FCC pushed forward and a year later the new sanctuary was built! The members of Ferguson Christian Church have grown closer to one another and to Jesus and continue to spread their mission of “Loving God – Loving People”
What's the bottom line? More than ever, Ferguson Christian Church is committed to fostering a family built around the love and hope offered in Jesus. We desire to not only learn more about God, but actually get to know God together. Our heart is to be authentic, transparent, and humble so that His Spirit can free us from everything that holds us back from loving him and you better.
