THE DESIGN OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH

(Disciples of Christ)

PREAMBLE


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.
