As a congregation, we had our formal beginning on March 1, 1959, with a groundbreaking ceremony for our Fellowship Hall and Educational Wing. A few
months later, on September 6, our first worship service was held in the newly completed Fellowship Hall. Our roots go back much further, however, to modest, but important first seeds of prayer and planning made by fellow disciples, in 1935. "Love Grows Here" took root from those early seeds, and today God's people are truly blessed by that early vision .
Since it’s origin on the American frontier in the early 1800’s, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has attempted to increase respect and understanding among Christian believers of all denominations. Attempting to hold true to the teachings of Jesus and the practices of the New Testament churches, we strive for a Christian faith which is both socially relevant and intellectually sound.
-No attempt is made to impose a set of formulated doctrines or interpretations of religious thought upon any member.
-We believe that the New Testament, particularly the life and teachings of Jesus, and his apostles, forms the basis of our Christian thought and action.
-We recognize the principle of self-government for each local congregation with the state and national
bodies serving in advisory capacities only.
-We observe the Lord’s Supper, or Holy Communion, every Sunday, and welcome all Christians from all denominations to participate.
-We practice Baptism by immersion, a New Testament practice recognized as the most adequate symbol of complete surrender and of the Biblical ideal
of death, burial, and resurrection to new life.
-We participate in and encourage interdenominational fellowship of Christians in worship, study, mission and
-People presenting themselves for membership here are asked only one question: “Do you believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the one living and true God, and do you accept him as your Lord and Savior?”
