ABOUT THE ISLAND CHRISTIAN CHURCH
Sometime in 1897, Claude G. Hart, seeing some street urchins at play, invited them to his home and began a Sunday School. Here, the Island Christian Church had its humble origin." A canvass was made of 57 family homes on Wheeling Island on October 18, 1897, and on December 6 of the same year, a declaration was made stating the desire and intention to organize a new Church.
We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
The Island Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) provides an array of programs the can meet the spiritual needs of our congreation and to meet the needs of all ages. The Island Church is part of the West Virginia Disciples of Christ Region which covers includes over 40 Disciples churches in West Virginia and Maryland.
