Our Beliefs

James A Garfield, former President of the United States, is one of the best-known associated with Christian churches/churches of Christ. He even served as a "lay preacher." To answer the many questions he recieved about the group of belevers with whom he worshiped, he wrote a classic statement:

  • 1. We call ourselves Christians, or Disciples of Christ.
  • 2. We believe in God the Father.
  • 3. We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and our Savior. We regard the divinity of Christ as the fundamental truth of the Christain system.
  • 4. We believe in the Holy Spirit, both as to His agency in conversion and as indwelling in the heart of the Christian.
  • 5. We accept both the Old and New Testament Scriptures as the inspired Word of God.
  • 6. We believe in the future punishment of the wicked and the future reward of the righteous.
  • 7. We believe that the Deity is a prayer hearing and a prayer answering God.
  • 8. We observe the institution of the Lord's Supper on the Lord's Day. To this table we neither invite nor debar; we say it is the Lord's Supper for all of the Lord's children.
  • 9. We plead for the union of God's people on the Bible and the Bible alone.
  • 10. The Christ is our only creed.
  • 11. We maintain that all the ordinances should be observed as they were in the days fo the apostles.
