WE ARE | SOMOS
We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world.
A united, bilingual, multicultural community that shares Christ's love and wholeness as we welcome and serve our local community, the world, and creation.
What we believe
Lo que creemos
Like most Christians, we affirm:
Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God and offers saving grace to all.
ALL people are God's children
Como la mayoría de los cristianos, afirmamos que:
Jesucristo es el hijo del Dios Viviente y ofrece salvación a todos.
Todas las personas son hijas/hijos de Dios.
What we practice
Lo que practicamos
The Lord's Supper, or Communion, is celebrated in weekly worship.
It is open to all who believe in Jesus Christ.
Freedom of belief
Disciples are called together around belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. People 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.
We hold the centrality of Scripture, recognizing that each person has the freedom - and the responsibility - to study God's Word within the community of the church.
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.
Oneness of the Church
All Christians are called to be one in Christ and to find ways to work together in showing God's love through witness and service. We hear a special calling to make visible the unity of all Christians. In our diversity we belong to one another because we commonly belong to Christ.
The Ministry of All Believers
Both ministers and lay persons lead in worship, service, and spiritual growth. We affirm the priesthood of all believers, rejoicing in the gift of leadership that God has given for the common good.
