Christ Lutheran Church - Walla Walla

Christ Lutheran Church was founded in 1896 by twenty-seven families who left Emmanuel Lutheran Church. In December of that year, its first church building was built at 140 West Maple Street. Originally, they shared a pastor with the congregation at Emmanuel. In 1904, a larger building was constructed on the same site.

In 1921, twenty-five members left to form Peace Evangelical Church.

On 1 August 1954, a new building was dedicated at 1420 South Second. The former church building is currently a Four Square Church.

Christ Lutheran is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).
