What we believe
Disciples PracticesAn Open Table... The Lord's Supper, or Communion, is celebrated weekly as the central act of worship. The Table is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ.
Freedom of Belief... Disciples are called together around one essential of faith: confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Persons are free to follow their consciences guided by the Bible, the Holy Spirit, study and prayer; and they 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 most commonly practice baptism by immersion, other baptism practices are honored.
The Given Unity of the Church... By God's grace and love made known in Jesus Christ, all are called to be one in Christ and to seek opportunities for common witness and service.
The Priesthood of All Believers... Both professional ministers and lay persons share in the leadership of the church in the up-building of its life in worship, service, and spiritual growth.A Passion for Justice... Disciples affirm our need to be a pro-reconciliation/anti-racist church as we work with ecumenical and global partners to heal the brokenness of the body of Christ and the human community.
