Our Beliefs

 

Our Symbol                                                                                                                                                 
The symbol of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a simple red chalice bearing the Cross of St. Andrew across the left side of the bowl. Long associated with the Disciples of Christ as a symbol, the chalice points to the centrality of the Lord's Supper in the life and worship of the Disciples who celebrate Communion each Sunday. A Lord's Supper open to Christians of all persuasions has been characteristic of the church from its beginning in the early nineteenth century. The Cross of St. Andrew, national cross of Scotland, focuses attention on the Presbyterian roots of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The color red signifies vitality, spirit, and sacrifice.

What Disciples Believe
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) was founded in the United States in 1832.  Seeking to move beyond denominational disagreements, the founders envisioned a united church of Jesus Christ modeled on the New Testament.  Today we are over 4,000 congregations strong and still share that vision.  The chalice symbolizes our focus on the celebration of Holy Communion.

Open Communion
The Lord's Supper, or Communion, is celebrated in weekly worship and it is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ.

The Oneness of the Church
All Christians are called to be one in Christ and to seek opportunities for common witness and service.|

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 the Bible, the Holy Spirit, study, prayer, and are expected to extend that freedom to others.

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.

The Ministry of Believers
Both ordained ministers and lay persons lead in worship, service and spiritual growth.

And above all that, Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God, who offers saving grace to all who seek it through His Son.

Our Vision:
To be a faithful, growing church, that demonstrates true community, deep Christian spirituality and a passion for justice. (Micah 6:8)
