Our mission leads us to be and to share the good news of Jesus Christ!

What We Believe

In the Christian Church, we don’t believe in using creeds as a requirement for membership.  However, we do have a beautiful statement of faith.  Adopted in 1968, the Preamble of the Design reads:   

“As members of the Christian Church, we confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and proclaim him Lord and Savior of the world.  In Christ’s name and by his grace we accept our mission of witness and service to all people.  We rejoice in God, maker of heaven and earth, and in God’s covenant of love which binds us to God and to one another.  Through baptism into Christ we enter into newness of life and are made one with the whole people of God.  In the communion of the Holy Spirit we are joined together in discipleship and in obedience to Christ.  At the Table of the Lord we celebrate with thanksgiving the saving acts and presence of Christ.  Within the universal church we receive the gift of ministry and the light of scripture.  In the bonds of Christian faith we yield ourselves to God that we may serve the One whose kingdom has no end.  Blessing, glory, and honor be to God forever.  Amen.”
