Our congregation’s purpose is to follow Jesus Christ and live out the unique mission which is our calling from God.
As faithful disciples of Christ we are intentional in our practices of:
Through a Sunday morning experience which is a lighthearted, engaging, uplifting and inspiring we celebrate God’s presence in our lives. At UniPlace worship reaches the heights of praise and the depths of spiritual discernment.
We believe that having fun and connecting regularly with Christian friends can make your life more meaningful. With open hearts we welcome all God’s children into the full life and ministry of the church, no exceptions. All means all.
Our faith centers on the One who gave all, even his very life, for the sake of others. We seek to grow daily both as individuals and as a congregation in extravagant generosity. Everyone can know the joy of giving.
We believe that having fun and serving the needs of others are not mutually exclusive! At UniPlace there are opportunities every week where you can engage in active service to the needs of this community. God does amazing things through the hands and feet of those eager to reach out.
No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, God’s desire is for you to grow spiritually. Through Bible studies, prayer groups, spiritual retreats and other avenues of faith development, UniPlace is here to walk with you on that journey.
UniPlace Christian Church is affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
WHAT DO DISCIPLES BELIEVE?
Like most Christians, Disciples affirm that:
Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God, and offers saving grace to all. All persons are God’s children.
BELIEFS AND WORSHIP PRACTICES:
- Open Communion. The Lord’s Supper, or Communion is celebrated in weekly worship. It is open to all who want to follow Jesus the Christ.
- Freedom of belief. Disciples are called together around one essential of faith: belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. All 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 and fully recognized.
- Belief in the 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 all believers. Both ordained clergy and lay persons lead in worship, service and spiritual growth opportunities.
