As a congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we believe:

-the Bible to be the inspired word of God and the foundation of our faith.

-in a strong emphasis on the teaching and preaching ministry – learning and growing in faith.

-each time we gather in worship, we remember that Jesus died for us and is alive today. Communion is central to who we are as a people of faith, drawing us close to the Lord and to each other.

-that prayer is our vital link to our Lord and Savior.

-we are called to reach out to help our neighbors, both here and around the world through our gifts of time, talent and money.

-we are stewards of all our God-given resources and believe in tithing (proportionate giving) to the ministry of God’s people.

-every life is precious to God. We value each other and celebrate the unique gifts God has placed into each life. We celebrate diversity in the midst of unity in Christ. Ministry to all ages and stages in life is important.
