Building the Kingdom of God


Welcome to our website.  We are delighted to have you view our site.  If you are planning a visit to Princeton, we would love to have you come and join us for worship, study and fellowship anytime.  

Our website is one, which shares a great deal of information not only about us but also about our community. You will find some fun links to go to as well as our church links.  You can see we enjoy sports and fun here at First Christian Church!  Over the years, we hosted three soccer fields on our backyard so that our community children could have a place to play safely. Since that time, the city/county has built fields for the children. They occasionally still practice at our facility.  

Our church is a great small congregation. You will find people who laugh a lot, enjoy eating together and worshiping in song and word. We have been here in Princeton since 1829 so you could say we are a historical church, but we also are young in that we enjoy trying new ideas.

Our music is blended with classical pieces, traditional hymns, praise songs and some southern gospel.  Our worship is centered on communion. We uplift the Lord’s Table as central to our worship. We begin our worship with praise, move to prayer and then partake together of the cup and bread at the table. Each Sunday we share our offerings as an expression of our love to God. The preaching is practical implications from the Bible for your life. My style of preaching is conversational and filled with love. It is my desire for you to hear the gospel message so that you will discover God and his Son Jesus.

If you are searching for a church home or passing through Princeton, we would love to invite you to come and enjoy our fellowship, our worship, and our love. We welcome all people to join us, if you are old, young or between, you are invited to come to the First Christian Church. Our congregation is looking forward to seeing you soon! 

Reverend Clifford Jones





About Reverend Jones

Reverend Clifford Jones received his Masters of Divinity from the Phillips Graduate Seminary in Enid, Oklahoma. While attending Phillips University, Clifford served the Putnam Christian Church and the Aline Christian Church, both in Oklahoma. After being ordained at his home church of First Christian Church in Oskaloosa, Iowa, Clifford serviced Zearing Christian Church in Iowa. While in Zearing, Clifford was called by the Regional Office of Florida to become their Pastor Developer in Bradenton, Florida.  After thousands of direct visits door-to-door, the St. Andrew's Christian Church chartered and began their own worship services.  His completion of this development ministry led to a call to the Faith Christian Church in Hollywood, Florida.   In 1992, Clifford was called to the First Christian Church in Princeton, Ky.  Rev.  Jones resides in Princeton with his wife Karen and their three children.    Cliff and Karen  particularly enjoy the music and youth ministries.
