What We Believe:  Deep Christian Spirituality

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.  


For Disciples, the open table is a powerful symbol of unity and togetherness.  We believe everyone has a seat at the table and are joined together in discipleship through communion each Sunday.


We believe baptism by immersion washes away an old life and allows for a new life, a life of trusting God.  While this is our way of baptism, we also honor other baptism traditions.


We believe ministers and lay persons of both genders and all orientations are equally valuable in leading worship.


We believe in a joyful, celebratory worship of Jesus Christ, Son of the living God.


We believe in witnessing as a servant.  We encourage community-mindedness, volunteerism, and service to all people.


We believe in God's grace.
