Hello it’s Pastor Derrick, remember, Jesus Loves you!  There are STILL reasons to be thankful.  God is on the move and if nothing else COVID-19 is a reason to take stock as to what is truly important in life.  

A relationship with Jesus, family, friends and the opportunity to slow life down in some respects.  Troubles in this life are only THIS world problems.  

One day at the feet of Jesus all of this will be a distant memory.  

During Holy Week we are reminded that the unconditional love of God is among us!


Thank you for being part of this church and for trusting God no matter what.  Vision 2020 is still in place because God is the one who orchestrated it.


Be Blessed, Remain strong as a Child of God,

I look forward to seeing you soon!


Pastor Derrick

Welcome!  We are glad you stopped by!

From 1892 - until Christ Comes!


Our church has a rich history in Madera!   Since our humble beginnings at both the 5th & B St. & 6th & A St. locations,  to our current Sunset Ave. location, we  continue to serve Christ and bring hope to our community.

We would like to introduce our new church LOGO! 

With some help, the elders and I set out to create something that was more descriptive of First Christian and represented us in Madera.  The new logo is a combination of our commitment to Christ and a use of the word “Madera” meaning wood.  This logo will be incorporated into each aspect of our ministry.  It will be used on our Letterhead, envelopes, Sunday Morning presentations, bulletins, and online presence.  Join us in Faith as we trust God for what is next at First Christian Church!
