Our Mission, Vision and Confession

 

Our Identity

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.

 

Our Vision

To be a faithful, growing church, that demonstrates true community, deep Christian spirituality and a passion for justice.- Micah 6:8

 

Our Mission

To be and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, witnessing, loving and serving from our doorsteps "to the ends of the earth."- Acts 1:8

 

Our Confession

As members of the Christian Church,We confess that Jesus is the Christ,the Son of the living God,and proclaim him Lord and Savior of the world.- The Preamble to The Design of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

 

This confession is the opening paragraph in the Preamble to the Design of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  It is used by many Disciples congregations in worship as an affirmation of the faith of the church throughout the ages – not as a "test of fellowship," but as a statement of faith that identifies the Disciples' commitment to and place within the universal and ecumenical church.

 

The preamble continues...

As members of the Christian Church, We confess that Jesus is the Christ,the Son of the living 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 God's covenant of love which binds us to God and to 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
