Statement of Beliefs

A Disciples Affirmation

As members of the Christian Church,

we confess that Jesus is the Christ,

    the Son of 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 the  covenant of love which binds us to God

    and 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.

--Preamble to the Design for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
