What We Believe

Geist Christian Church is a part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. This statement is more than words or simply a profession of faith. It is the only question we ask when one wishes to affiliate with Geist Christian Church and our faith is expressed out of this simple profession. There are no other creeds or confessions that act as a test of faith.

We believe that the Lord’s Table is open and inclusive.
Communion, which we celebrate weekly, is open to all who confess Jesus as the Christ. Gathering around the communion table is a constant reminder that Christ gave his life for us.

We believe in the ministry of all believers.
While there are ministers on the staff, each member and participant of the church is gifted in many ways; each is a minister of the church. We seek to use our gifts together, as the body of Christ.

We believe in the love of unity.
Recognized or not, we are in relation to one another. We believe that we are to work together as denominations to be the witnesses of Christ. In short, we believe that we are Christians only and not the only Christians.

We believe in the justice of God.
We are called to love and serve all of God’s people. We serve the marginalized and distressed in our community and around the world.
