A Disciples Affirmation

 

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 the covenant of love

            which binds us to God and 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. Amen.
