ABOUT US

We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.

Each Disciples of Christ congregation determines the nature of its worship, study, service, and witness to the world. We honor our heritage as a movement for Christian unity by cooperating and partnering with other faith communities to work for bringing about wholeness – healing and justice – in the world.

OUR VISION

To be a faithful, growing church, that demonstrates true community, deep Christian spirituality and a

passion for justice.
– Micah 6:8

WHAT WE DO

We are called to study and read scripture for ourselves. Rather than having tests of faith and creedal statements, we critically and thoughtfully study scripture, taking into account the history and background – the context – in which it was written.
 

We also honor the heritage of Christian unity by staying together in covenant as a witness to the world that even when we disagree; we can still make room, welcoming all to the table as Christ has welcomed us.

 

Our spiritual ancestors were fond of saying, “unity, not uniformity.”

OUR COMMUNITY

We consider the Lord’s Supper to be an integral part of worship. 

We share communion each week and welcome all who confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to participate in this time of community.

We practice believer’s baptism by immersion.

We also recognize and accept other forms of baptism including infant baptism.

We acknowledge the priesthood of all believers.

We believe that all who are baptized are called to minister to others with the diverse spiritual gifts they have been given.

We strive to maintain an open and affirming community.

We accept the uniqueness and value of each individual and endeavor to promote pro-reconciliation, anti-racism, and the elimination of sexual biases.
