What we believe as a denomination is put forth in The Preamble to The Design, the document that organized us a denomination. While we do not have any stated creeds or doctrines, the Preamble does proclaim what we believe and is often used in our worship services.
The Preamble to the Design of the
Christian Church (Disciples of Christ):
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 Christís 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 Godís 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 http://discussionthemes.blogspot.com/
