We affirm that Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God, and offers saving grace to all. We believe that all people are God’s children.
We live out this affirmation through:
- Open Communion. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper in weekly worship and it is open to all who 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 other.
- Baptism by immersion. In baptism the old self-centered life is set aside, and a new life of trust in God is made possible. Although Disciples practice baptism by immersion, other baptism traditions are honored.
- Belief in the unity of the church.All Christians are called to be one in Christ and to ways to work together in showing God’s love through witness and service.
The ministry of all believers.Both ministers and lay persons lead in worship, service and spiritual growth.
