WHAT WE BELIEVE

 Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God, and offers saving grace to all who respond to His love in faith.  

Beliefs and practices associated with Disciples include:

 

  • We practice Open Communion. We celebrate Communion in weekly worship. It is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ.

  • Disciples are called together around one essential of faith:  Belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. People are free to follow their conscience guided by the Bible, the Holy Spirit study and prayer, and are expected to extend that freedom to others. 

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

  • Belief in the oneness of the church.  All Christians are called to be one in Christ and to seek opportunities for common witness and service. 

  • The ministry of believers. Both ministers and lay persons lead in worship, service and spiritual growth.

 

We Have No Creed but Christ!
