DISCIPLES OF CHRIST
WHO WE ARE
St. Philip’s Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a family of followers of Jesus Christ who desire to spread the gospel of Christ in a clear, concise and consistent way. We seek to do this through biblical doctrine, and accountability to Christ’s doctrine of salvation by grace alone.
Our mission is to adhere to the Spirit of God, as we spread the message of peace, hope and love globally.
We are motivated by the great commission of Christ, which He gave to His Church before His ascension “go you therefore and teach all nations, baptize them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”

Systematically working together to spread God’s mission.
Gathering corporately to celebrate the saving acts of Christ’s cross work through prayer, praise
CELEBRATION OF THE LORD'S SUPPER
The Lord's Supper or Communion is celebrated in weekly worship. The practice of Holy Communion has become the central element of worship within the Disciples tradition. Disciples' observance of the Lord's Supper emanates from the upper room, where Jesus shared bread and wine with his disciples on the eve of his crucifixion. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, the living Christ is met and received in the sharing of the bread and the cup, representative of the body and blood of Jesus. The presence of the living Lord is affirmed and he is proclaimed to be the dominant power in our lives.
