Beliefs

Johns Creek Christian Church is a unique community of faith that is also a part of a larger communion around the world known as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). There is a unique combination of beliefs, practices and traditions that characterize the Disciples.

We are a congregation connected to the Georgia Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

 

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), while founded on American soil in the early 1800s, is uniquely equipped to live up to its identity that it is a "movement for wholeness in a fragmented world." The denomination was born in the 1800s, and continues to be influenced by its founding ideals of our unity in Christ with openness and diversity in practice and belief.
