What Disciples Believe

Open Communion

The Lord’s Supper, or Communion, is celebrated in weekly worship. This practice is not exclusive to this church or to this denomination. This is God’s table, and it is open to all the followers of Jesus the Christ.

The Oneness of the Church

All Christians are called to be one in Christ and to seek opportunities for common witness and service.

Freedom of Belief

As Disciples, we are called together around two essentials of faith: a belief in Jesus the Christ as Lord and Savior, and that Christians are free to follow their conscience guided by the Bible, the Holy Spirit, study, prayer, and are expected to extend that freedom to others.

Baptism by Immersion

In baptism, the old self-centered life is set aside, washed away and a new life of trust in God begins. Although Disciples practice baptism by immersion, other baptism traditions are honored and recognized.

The Ministry of Believers

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