We invite you to discover The Christian Church  (Disciples of Christ):

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.

Keywords in the statement help us understand and own this identity as Disciples of Christ:

  • Movement

    – Individually and with others “extending the neighborhood” of God’s love and care from our doorsteps to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8, Matthew 28: 16-20 (Great Commission)

Being a movement for wholeness means we must actually keep moving.
We cannot settle for stagnant waters, or complacence, or for just being “good enough.”

  • Wholeness and Welcoming

It means striving for radical inclusion inside and outside of our walls,
welcoming all without judgement,
stepping out of our comfort zone,
placing ourselves into the brokenness
and doing everything that we possibly can to heal our communities;
with the unconditional love that we are shown through the love of Jesus Christ.
