What do Disciples believe?

Like most Christians, Disciples affirm:

Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God, and offers saving grace to all
All persons are God’s children


Beliefs and practices usually associated with Disciples include:

  • Open Communion. The Lord’s Supper, or Communion is celebrated in weekly worship. It is open to all believe in Jesus Christ.

  • Freedom of belief. Disciples are called together around one essential of faith: belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Persons are free to follow their consciences 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.


*To be a faithful, growing church, that demonstrates true community, deep Christian spirituality and a passion for justice. 


*We put our trust in God and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior through our Confession that He is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. 


*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.
