We are New Horizons Christian Church a part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Disciples congregations meet weekly to worship God and celebrate the Lord’s Supper.
What Do Disciples Believe?
Like Most Christians, Disciples Affirm:
- Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God, and offers saving grace to all
- All persons are God’s children
Beliefs and Practices Usually Associated With Disciples Include:
- Open Communion: The Lord’s Supper, or communion is celebrated in weekly worship and open to all.
- Freedom of Belief: Disciples are called together around one essential of faith: belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Persons are free to follow their consciences guided by the Bible, the Holy Spirit, study, and prayer, and are expected to extend that freedom to others.
- Baptism by immersion: In baptism the old self-centered life is set aside and a new life of trust in God begins. Although Disciples practice baptism by immersion, other baptism traditions are honored.
- Belief in oneness of the church: All Christians are called to be one in Christ and to seek opportunities for common witness and service.
- The ministry of believers: Both ministers and pay persons lead in worship, service and spiritual growth.
