Constructed in 1942, the First Christian Church in Columbus, Indiana, was initially known as the Tabernacle Church of Christ. This church was the first contemporary building constructed in Columbus and one of the first modern churches in the United States. Architect Eliel Saarinen designed the church's tower and bridge section and glass-fronted main hall, while the interior details were designed by his architect son, Eero Saarinen, and furniture designer Charles Eames.
The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.
