WHAT WE BELIEVE

People of the Table

As members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) we celebrate communion every Sunday. While some see the table as an alter, we have always seen it as a gathering place. We believe communion doesn't just happen in worship. Communion happens every time we sit around the dinner table or get together with friends and remember Christ.

Some of our favorite memories as a church have been around the table eating, laughing and serving others. For us, communion is about friends (Disciples) sharing the bread and enjoying our time together. Communion is about sharing our joys and concerns, lifting each other up, and remembering the love of Christ who sacrificed for us.

The table is open to ALL. Taste and see the goodness of God.

 

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: we believe in Jesus as 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 self-centered life is set aside, washed away and a new life of trust in God begins. Although Disciples practice baptism by immersion, other traditions are honored.

 

The Ministry of Believers

Both ordained ministers and lay persons lead in worship, service, and spirited growth. We are all ministers and use our gifts to witness to God's love in the world.
