Our Beliefs

 

We believe that everyone is welcomed, loved, and fully accepted by God as we are. Everyone means everyone. if you've been a Christian  for as long as you can remember, or if you've never set foot in a church before, you are welcome here. If you used to attend church but haven't been able to attend for awhile, you are welcome here. We respect our differences of opinion and don't let those opinions get in the way of our love for each other. 

Our Denomination

We're part of the Disciples of Christ (Christian Church) Denomination. Our denomination believes in equality for all people, justice for the vulnerable, and that every single person has value and worth. You can read more about the Disciples of Christ (Christian Church) at disciples.org. 

Communion

As Disciples of Christ, we believe that communion is the central moment in our worship and is celebrated weekly. It is open to anyone who wants to receive it. You can be a first time visitor or a decades long member, you can be an adult or child, you can be certain in your faith or still searching...

 

Our denomination closely identifies with communion as one way of experiencing God's love and acceptance, and we are "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."

Baptism

We celebrate each person's choice to be a Baptized in Christ. We believe it represents a commitment to follow Christ, his example in life of serving and loving others, and a new beginning in our own lives. It is a personal choice which is celebrated within our faith community. It's a public response to our faith that shares God's mercy and hope with the world. 

Membership

To become a member of First Christian Church we ask that you are supportive of the church with your time, gifts, and talents. Membership is not something we have, it's something we do. And being an official member of our church means that you want to journey with us as we all try our best to serve God and love one another.  While we do not have a 'membership class' we do encourage you to speak with an Elder or our Pastor if this is something that interests you.
