Our Denomination

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome you to the Lord’s Table, as God has welcomed us.

Established on the American Frontier in the early 1880’s, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is the oldest and largest Protestant church founded in the United States. Congregations that celebrate the intersection of faith and reason sprang up across Virginia and Kentucky and grew from there. Simplicity and unity, freedom and practicality remain basic tenets of our heritage and our vision.

We believe that the New Testament, particularly the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, form the basis of our Christian faith practice and daily life. As Disciples of Christ, we respect diversity of thought and advocate responsible and conscientious religious and intellectual freedom. We hold that “in essentials, unity, in opinion, liberty, and in all things, LOVE” (Thomas Campbell, co-founder of our denomination). Christian Unity is our “polar star,” because ecumenism is an important way of life and mission. In all things we strive to practice the spiritual discipline in a manner that is both socially relevant and intellectually sound.

The Chalice, which features St. Andrew’s cross, symbolizes the central place of communion in worship, which is served weekly. The Lord’s Table is open to all who desire to participate. The X-shaped cross of the disciple Andrew is a reminder of the ministry of each person and the importance of lay leadership and evangelism.
