"A Church For Today"
Wouldn't it be great if there was a church in which everybody would be welcome and respected. Wouldn't it be amazing if there was a church where individuals were expected to develop their own belief systems with out being told what they "have to believe." Wouldn't it freak you out to find a church that was run as a democracy; with each participant having a say in congregational affairs equal to the Pastor. Wouldn't it be great to find a church that didn't expect you to leave your brain at the door when interpreting scripture & when dealing with complex moral and social issues.
I am a Disciple of Christ because the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada IS A CHURCH that offers me the chance to meet and minister with people who are as diverse as the North American population. Beyond a common belief in and relationship with Jesus as the Christ we Disciples agree with one another on many issues but we also agree to disagree at times. Tolerance and compassion both play a major role in the life of Central Christian Church of Glendale.
As I have matured in my faith the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has been "big" enough to allow me to feel at home as I passed through my stages of faith. My beliefs have changed, but at least two things have remained constant; my Love of Jesus and the support of my church.
I want to invite you to be a part of this Church For Today in Glendale. Central Christian Church is a small ethnically and theologically diverse congregation, which is very active in sharing God's love through Christ Jesus. We major in Love and Acceptance at Central! Come share our vision as we seek to serve Christ and neighbor.
