Our Story

How it all started...

Kissimmee Christian Church had it’s beginning in 1884 when a few families from Kentucky, former neighbors and members of the Christian Church, who had moved to Kissimmee, came together for worship services. They met in homes, the local Opera House (located next to Makinson’s Hardware), and later the Dale carpenter shop. Their first official location was a small chapel on the corner of Palmway and Park Street, First Christian Church of Kissimmee.

In 1905 the church purchased its current location at 415 N. Main Street and built a small white frame building.  Over the years it bought many surrounding houses for Sunday School.  From 1966-1969 the church demolished many of those houses, and eventually the sanctuary, in order to build a new education wing, fellowship hall, and sanctuary that were all connected--to our newest addition, a Family Life Center and Gymnasium which houses our Christian Academy (PreK3-8th).

We are so privileged to have started a fully run outreach service to the homeless and distressed every Sunday morning at 8:30AM as well as a Street Ministry on Tuesdays and a Jail Ministry on Wednesdays.  KCC is also home to a host of other externally and internally focused ministries throughout the week.

We have been blessed by our five language ministries taking place each week.  We have an English, French Creole, Portuguese, Spanish and ASL service.

In the 1980’s First Christian Church launched Poinciana Christian Church and Northeast Christian Church. In the late 1990's KCC also helped to  establish Canoe Creek Christian Church in St. Cloud, FL.

Expanding the vision...

Today Kissimmee Christian Church is thriving. We recently changed our name to be more relevant to the city in which we live.  We have over 950 in attendance each Sunday. Our ministries are reaching all ages. We are striving To Know Christ and To Make Him Known into every cultural and economic facet of the city of Kissimmee.

We've also built a Ministry Center to be able to accommodate more of our ministries and outreach to the community.  Our gymnasium is home to 4 classrooms for our Academy as well as multiple activities  going on every night of the week.
