The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a Protestant denomination of approximately 800,000 members in the US and Canada. It is one of the largest faith groups founded on American soil.
From our origins in the early 1800s, we have been motivated by the call of Christ to unite the Church as one. We believe it is essential that Christians learn how to talk to and work with one another.
Central Christian Church Pocatello Idaho members are a cross-section of our community. People of various backgrounds and theological beliefs gather as one community in faith under the basic belief that everyone is called to follow Christ and that a person’s ability to follow is based upon their understanding of God and the Bible. We unite people across a wide spectrum of ideologies and view one another as followers of Christ while disavowing labels.
Our church believes that each individual’s faith is personal, so we refuse to demand that they affirm certain dogmatic ideas while denying others. We openly welcome people from all backgrounds, regardless of doctrinal convictions. The basic thinking of our church can be summarized as follows:
We seek to love everyone and value them equally since God Himself shows no favoritism. We take Jesus Christ at His word that He came to save all people. It is only fitting that we try to live up to His expectations.
The chalice symbolizes the central place communion holds in the worship of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The X-shaped cross of the Disciple Andrew is a reminder of each person’s ministry and the importance of sharing our faith experiences.
When Andrew met Jesus, he was moved by the encounter and invited his brother Peter to meet Christ. We, too, are motivated to invite others to meet Jesus and follow Him as their Savior and Lord.
