Building the Kingdom of God

About Our Beliefs

The First Christian (Disciples of Christ) Church of Princeton is a congregational governed group of Christian believers. There is no extra congregational organization in control, and we are subjection only to the Lord Himself as revealed in the Holy Bible.  We desire to produce in doctrine, life and practice the Church founded by Christ. We seek to exalt Christ above sect and the Bible above human creeds. We desire to build a Christian church without man-written creeds or barriers to Christian unity and wish to be known simply as "Christians."  We do not claim to be the only Christians, but we do insist on being known as Christians only.

The terms of fellowship in the church are as broad as the conditions of salvation set forth in the Bible and identical to them.  They are: repentance of sin, confession of Christ as Lord and Savior, the baptism in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for the remission of sins.

Our worship, like that of the original Church, includes the Lord's Supper. In this service, we remember the Lord's death for all people and testify to our faith in His ultimate return to glory.  We do not exclude anyone from partaking of the Lord's Supper. It is the Lord's table for the Lord's children.

There are two slogans that may be used to summarize our position: "Where the Bible speaks, we speak; where the Bible is silent, we are silent." And, "In essentials, unity -- in opinions, liberty -- in all things, love."
