Who We Are and What We Believe
Our Mission is to do justice, seek peace, and love all as Christ loves. We have been serving greater New Smyrna Beach, acting as God's hands and feet in the world since 1875. This includes folks from as far north as Ormond Beach, as far west as DeLand, as far south as Oak Hill and Orange City.
We honor the spirit of inquiry by inviting openness about issues related to a life of faith. With the divine as our primary teacher, we celebrate the many ways we experience and understand our relationship to the Creator. We reflect a broad and diverse range of beliefs including those who understand themselves as reborn in Christ all the way through agnostic… even atheists are welcomed into our fellowship. Without judgment, we trust God to shape us all as our lives come in contact with other lives and as the Spirit moves in and through each of us.
Here you will quickly discover that we welcome questions and celebrate learning.This openness comes from our tradition that historically challenged the damaging and divisive nature of church dogmas and creeds. Traditionally, from our Disciples of Christ tradition, we say there is "no creed but Christ," meaning, the primary way we know and understand our faith is through a relationship with the Living God.
