What Disciples Believe

Open Communion

The Lord’s Supper, or Communion, is celebrated in weekly worship and it is open to all at the invitation of Jesus Christ.

The Unity of a Community

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


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.


God’s word of love and reconciliation, equipping the Church with direction in mission and spiritual food for each person’s growth and maturity in the Christian faith.


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

All are Welcome

Both, ministers and lay persons, lead in worship, service, and spiritual growth. You are welcome to participate in the full life of the community regardless of gender, race, class, sexuality, belief, or ability.
