What do Disciples believe?
We are called to study and read scripture for ourselves. Rather than having tests of faith and creedal statements, we critically and thoughtfully study scripture, taking into account the history and background – the context – in which it was written. Find our Mission, Vision, and Confession here. For more information about our Disciples identity, click here.
How do regions work within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)?
We are organized into geographic regions, each having its own structure and leadership. Mid-America is one of only two regions further organized into separate [areas] with their own Area Ministers who together serve as our Mid-America Ministry Team. More information about our regional structure is available here.
What is the Disciples Mission Fund?
Disciples Mission Fund is the common fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Disciples Mission Fund supports 72 ministries of wholeness as close as your local congregation and reaching around the globe. Learn more here.
