Our Church

Our Purpose

To proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ in faithful response to God's will and purposes as revealed through Jesus Christ and in the world; to seek in all persons a faith and commitment to Jesus Christ; to serve the community of which it is a part; to bring the gospel message to bear upon society; to sustain and be sustained by the general and regional manifestations of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); to work cooperatively with Christians in other communions; to seek the oneness of the body of Christ; and in all ways to seek to make known the love of God.

Who are we?

We are an open, welcoming, and compassionate church family pursuing a joyful relationship with Jesus Christ.

What are we called to do?
  • We bring ourselves and others into a vital faith and relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • We act on Christ's commission to share God's Good News to all people everywhere.
  • As catalysts for transformation, we work to establish God’s will now, in this time, and here, in this place, and in all our spheres of influence.
  • We respond to God’s Holy Spirit Who propels us outward toward others in love every day.
What are our most important beliefs (core values) as a church community?

As Christians: Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and we accept him as Lord and Savior of the world.

Each one of us has the freedom – and the responsibility – to study God’s Word, to follow their conscience as guided by the Bible, the Holy Spirit, study, and prayer, and to extend that freedom to others.

God’s grace demands a response of faith and discipleship initiated by baptism.

Maturity in our faith is evidenced by love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, benevolence, faithfulness, humility, and self-control.
By God’s invitation, everyone who desires to draw closer to Jesus may partake of the Lord’s Supper (also known as “communion”) as often as possible.

We hear a special calling to make visible the unity of all Christians, proclaiming that in our diversity we belong to one another because we commonly belong to Christ.

Both ordained ministers and lay persons lead in worship, service, and spiritual growth.
