Our Core Beliefs

Disciples are called together around one essential of faith: Belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Our core practices are:

1. Open Communion: Communion celebrated in weekly worship is open all believers.

2. Diversity of opinion: Each person is free to determine his/her individual belief guided by the Bible, the Holy Spirit, study and prayer.

3. Baptism by immersion is our usual practice but other baptism traditions are accepted.

4. Church unity: All Christians should cooperate where possible and affirm each other as sisters and brothers in Christ.

5. The ministry of believers: Both ministers and lay persons lead in worship, direct service opportunities and nurture spiritual growth.

The Chalice

The Chalice

The symbol of the Christian Church Disciples of Christ is a red chalice inscribed with a white St. Andrews cross. The chalice represents the centrality of a weekly open communion to the worship experience in our denomination. The St. Andrews cross denotes the denomination's roots in the Scottish Presbyterian Church.

Preamble

As members of the Christian Church,
We confess that Jesus is the Christ,
the Son of the living God,
and proclaim him Lord and Savior of the world.
In Christ's name and by his grace
we accept our mission of witness
and service to all people.
We rejoice in God,
maker of heaven and earth,
and in God's covenant of love
which binds us to God and to one another.
Through baptism into Christ
we enter into newness of life
and are made one with the whole people of God.
In the communion of the Holy Spirit
we are joined together in discipleship
and in obedience to Christ.
At the Table of the Lord
we celebrate with thanksgiving
the saving acts and presence of Christ.
Within the universal church
we receive the gift of ministry
and the light of scripture.
In the bonds of Christian faith
we yield ourselves to God
that we may serve the One
whose kingdom has no end.
Blessing, glory, and honor
be to God forever. Amen.
