Our Beliefs

What We Believe As The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

We have no creed but Christ and no doctrines except those which are found in the New Testament.  We are a flexible and diverse group of people who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and our Lord and Savior.  While expressing ourselves through our participation in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we believe that we are a part of the ENTIRE church of Jesus Christ.

We believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ calls us to worship regularly together and to remember him in communion.  We will spread the gospel and baptize those who respond.  With liberating faith we will strive to provide friendship, acceptance, and spiritual guidance through fellowship and practical Biblical education for people of all ages.  We affirm that we are called to be an example of faith through our service to others, both in this community and in the world.

The Lord's Supper

In keeping with the historical practice of the early Christian era, Communion is celebrated every Sunday and on special occasions.  The Lord's Supper is the heart of our worship and is administered by the diaconate.  All Christians of any denomination are welcome to participate.

"This is my body, which is for you.  Do this in remembrance of me."  (1 Corinthians 11:24)

 

CHRISTIAN CHURCH (DISCIPLES OF CHRIST)

Affirmation of the Christian Faith

As members of the Christian Church, we confess that Jesus is the Christ,
the Son of the living God, and proclaim Him Lord and Savior of the world. 
In Christ's name and by his grace we accept our mission of witness and service to all people. 
We rejoice in God, maker of heaven and earth, and in the covenant of love which binds us to God and one another. 
Through baptism into Christ we enter into newness of life and are made one with the whole people of God. 
In the communion of the Holy Spirit we are joined together in discipleship and in obedience to Christ. 
At the table of the Lord we celebrate with thanksgiving the saving acts and presence of Christ. 
Within the universal church we receive the gift of ministry and the light of scripture. 
In the bonds of Christian faith we yield ourselves to God that we may serve the One whose kingdom has no end. 
Blessing, glory and honor be to God forever.  Amen.
