The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of Northern California-Nevada is a covenantal community of 60+ congregations and congregations in formation and approximately 6000 participating members. We are joined together to make a witness for Jesus Christ in Northern California and Nevada. We stretch from Eureka and Redding in the north, to Pacific Grove in the southwest, to Porterville in the south, and to Reno/Sparks in the east.
The Christian Church of Northern California-Nevada is a proud part of the wider Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) family. The following is an affirmation of faith that characterizes many disciples:
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.
