First Central Bible Church, founded in 1830, is an independent fellowship of believers in Chicopee, Massachusetts. Characterized by visitors and newcomers as a friendly and loving body of believers, we are also known as a church that is steadfast in preaching sound, biblical doctrine.
Chicopee has a current population of almost 56,000 with a median income of $53,225. Chicopee's religious profile identifies as predominantly Roman Catholic and one fourth of the population claims no identity with anychurch.
First Central draws the majority of its approximately 150 members and attenders from Chicopee, but a good number of our church families commute from surrounding communities, including some from northern Connecticut. Our church body is made up of a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds and a wide range of ages.
