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/
