For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8: 38-39
Like most Christians, Disciples Affirm:
Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God
All persons are God’s children
Beliefs and practices usually associated with Disciples include:
The Lord’s Supper is celebrated in weekly worship. It is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ.
Freedom of Belief
Disciples are called together around one essential of faith: belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Persons are free to follow their consciences guided by the Bible, the Holy Spirit, study and prayer, and are expected to extend that freedom to others.
Baptism by Immersion
In baptism the old self-centered life is set aside, and a new life of trust in God begins. Although Disciples practice baptism by immersion, other baptism traditions are honored.
Belief in the Oneness of the Church
All Christians are called to be one in Christ and to seek opportunities for common witness and service.
The Ministry of Believers
Both ministers and lay persons lead in worship, service and spiritual growth.
