Our Beliefs

Statement of Faith

We believe that Jesus is the Christ, Son of the Living God. Baptized into Christ, we proclaim Him Lord and Savior. As a family of faith, we celebrate God's love in the sharing of communion. As disciples of Christ, we are challenged to grow in spirit, wisdom, fellowship, teaching, and prayer within a nurturing community of love, acceptance, caring, and hope. As Christ's servants, we are called to a shared ministry in His name and in His example. As First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Rockwall, Texas, we dedicate ourselves to follow Him whose kingdom has no end. Amen.
