You Are Welcome Here!
We are a congregation of believers in God as seen through Jesus Christ, of diverse backgrounds and opinions, dedicated to nurturing each other in our faith, helping each other grow spiritually, and welcoming all who join us. We proclaim the Gospel of Christ in word and deed and share His spirit in our church family, our community, and the world.
We believe communion of the Lord’s Supper should be offered whenever Christians gather for worship. All are invited who accept Jesus Christ as Lord.
Though we teach, preach and practice immersion baptism for those old enough to proclaim Christ as Lord, we accept persons from other denominations without requiring rebaptism.
We are committed to praise and worship; to the spiritual growth of all ages and groups; to joyful Christian fellowship; and to serving our community and the world in the name of Christ.
Statement Of Identity
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.
Principles Of Identity
- We confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and proclaim him Lord and Savior of the world, requiring nothing more – and nothing less – as a basis of our life together.
- We hold the centrality of scripture, recognizing that each person has the freedom – and the responsibility – to study God’s Word within the community of the church.
- We practice the baptism of believers, which emphasizes that God’s grace demands a response of faith and discipleship, while also recognizing the baptism performed in other churches.
- We gather for the Lord’s Supper, as often as possible, experiencing at this table the gracious, forgiving presence of Jesus Christ.
- We structure our community around the biblical idea of covenant, emphasizing not obedience to human authority but accountability to one another because of our shared obedience to Christ.
- We participate in God’s mission for the world, working with partners to heal the brokenness of creation and bring justice and peace to the whole human family.
- We hear a special calling to make visible the unity of all Christians, proclaiming that in our diversity we belong to one another because we commonly belong to Christ.
- We witness to the Gospel of God’s saving love for the world in Jesus Christ, while continuing to struggle with how God’s love may be known to others in different ways.
- We affirm the priesthood of all believers, rejoicing in the gifts of the Holy Spirit – which include the gift of leadership – that God has given for the common good.
- We celebrate the diversity of our common life, affirming our different histories, styles of worship, and forms of service.
- We give thanks that each congregation, where Christ is present through faith, is truly the church, affirming as well that God’s church and God’s mission stretch from our doorsteps to the ends of the earth.
- We anticipate God’s coming reign, seeking to serve the God – Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer – whose loving dominion has no end.
