IT’S NOT WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT!
As Disciples of Christ, or the Christian Church, we are a body of inclusive and loving individuals from all walks of life. You will find conservatives and liberals, handwaving people, people who sit as still as possible, funny people, serious people, people who are struggling, people who are hurting and people with unbelievably loving hearts. We are a church that celebrates outreach and taking care of those less fortunate in our community.
As a Disciple, you do not have to subscribe to any creed. We are part of the free-church movement in Protestant Christianity. All Disciples are free to believe and interpret scripture as the Holy Spirit moves them to do so. We believe in “priesthood of the believer,” which means we believe through Christ we have direct access to God. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, is part of the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, was crucified on a cross for the sins of mankind and was resurrected so that all who believe will spend an eternity in His loving arms.
We can trace our history back to the Stone-Campbell movement during the Second Great Awakening period in the early 19th century. Two separate groups of believers led by former Presbyterians, Barton Stone and Alexander Campbell, convened at Cane Ridge, Kentucky for a revival meeting where the two groups eventually merged to form a group of believers without denominational ties who were simply followers, or disciples, of Jesus.
