As a Congregation Through worship and service, through study and exploration, through meals served around dinner tables and at the Lord's table, we are a church family who strives to celebrate and communicate God's unconditional love for each and every person. First Christian Church (DOC) is a place to join with families and individuals who are listening for God's voice. Communion is served each week as we venture to encounter the Holy Spirit again and again. At First Christian Church of Slidell we preside at an open table where all are welcome to take Communion.
As a Denomination In essentials, unity; In nonessentials, liberty; In all things, charity. -early Disciples motto, attributed to Rupertus Meldenius
First Christian Church is congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The Christian Church (DOC) is a denomination that seeks to be the Body of Christ by valuing freedom and diversity among all those who claim themselves as members. Congregations and members are free to search for ways to explore and express their faith in Jesus Christ through worship and various types of ministries.
While local congregations are not tied into a hierarchical authority structure, they do live in covenant with the Regional, Great River Region grrdisciples.org , and General, www.disciples.org, expressions of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The local, regional, and general manifestations of the Church function independently of one another as they engage in their ministries, but they also cooperate and collaborate in their common mission and witness.
"The mission of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ): to be and share the good news of Jesus Christ, witnessing, loving, and serving from our doorsteps to the end of the earth." We hope to be a safe place for you to stretch and grow as you explore your faith in the Christian tradition.
