Our Beliefs

 

 

Open Communion
The Oneness of the Church

The Lord's Supper, or Communion, is celebrated in weekly worship and is open to all.

All Christians are called to be one in Christ and to seek opportunities for common witness and service.

God Calls Us to Mission

All of creation is a gift from God. Our voices of justice, mercy and peace must be boldly spoken to those powers that would stand in the way of God’s peace, God’s shalom being experienced by all. We are called to be God’s movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. We commit our time, talent and money to such a mission.

Biblical Faith ...Thinking Faith

We love the Bible and take it seriously using both our minds and our hearts in a lifelong journey of understanding the ways it calls us to live out our

faith daily.

Covenant Relationships

Each congregation is autonomous but we choose to be related as a distinctive denomination in a covenant of passion and compassion to carry the Good News of God’s love in Jesus Christ to the entire world.

Freedom of Belief

As Disciples, we are called together around two essentials of faith: a belief in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and that Christians are free to follow their conscience guided by Bible study, the Holy Spirit and prayer. We are expected to extend that freedom of belief to others.

Ministry of All Believers

Both ministers and lay persons lead in worship, service and spiritual growth.

Baptism by Immersion

In baptism, the old self-centered life is set aside, washed away and a new life of trust in God begins. Although Disciples practice baptism by immersion, other baptism traditions are honored and welcomed.

Above All

We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God, who offers saving grace to all through his Son.
