OUR MISSION AND BELIEFS

Our Mission is to know Jesus and to make Him known!

For sixty years, Allison Park Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) continues to share with others in word and deed what God has done and is doing for them: that God has come into the world and is inviting people to hear and know and witness the love of Jesus Christ.

The Bible

The Bible
as a guide for Christian living and faith that truly reveals God's purpose in the world: to free us from sin through Jesus Christ. Each person is free to explore and interpret the Scriptures according to his or her own experience, and is encouraged to do so with the nurture of a faith community.

God as revealed in the Bible through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Christ as the Son of God; part of God's own divinity, yet fully human; our Savior,
with us always.

Public Confession of belief in Christ and repenting of sins; acceptance of Jesus into our lives.

Unity of all Christians in love of Christ.  Doctrines and human differences should not
be allowed to divide believers from each other.

Inclusive Ministry in the life and work of the church.  ALL members are "ministers"
--entitled to interpret the Scriptures and perform church functions.


THE TWO ORDINANCES OF THE CHURCH

1 - BAPTISM:  Is an outward act based upon an inward decision to accept Jesus
     as Lord and Savior.  Baptism is:

     +  For mature individuals who are old enough to make their own decisions.
         By immersion in water--the accepted New Testament practice.
     +  A public confession of faith in Jesus Christ and commitment to discipleship
     +  Symbolic of Christ's death, burial and resurrection.

     "Therefore we have been buried with him
       by baptism into death, so that ...
       we too might walk in newness of life."         « Romans 6:4 

2 - LORD'S SUPPER (Communion):   The heart of worship is celebrated:

     + In remembrance of Christ and Christ's life
     + In fellowship--drawing the congregation closer together 
     + In thanksgiving for forgiveness of sins and renewal of life.
     + Celebrated each Sunday and is administered by laypeople

     All Christians of any denomination are welcome to participate.

     "This is my body that is broken for you.  
       Do this in remembrance of me."                 « I Corinthians 11:24
