Affirmation of Faith
OUR MISSION IS TO LIVE AS DISCIPLES AND LEAD OTHERS TO JESUS CHRIST
IS DEFINED AS LOVING GOD
THROUGH JESUS CHRIST AND LOVING OTHERS
THE WAY JESUS LOVES THEM.
CORE CHRISTIAN VALUES
Sermon on the Mount:
God & Self Acceptance
The ability to accept yourself and your imperfections, and to enable
others to be more self-accepting.
The ability to feel what others feel;
to laugh and cry with others.
The ability to be tender because you are inwardly strong and to lead
without overpowering others.
The ability to maintain spiritual priorities and to cause
others to seek a deeper walk with Christ
The ability to pick up on the hurt and pain of others and
be "present" without being pushy or nosy.
The ability to be yourself without any pretenses and allow
the presence of Christ to radiate through you.
The ability to harmonize differences between others without
causing either person to "lose."
The ability to stand up for what you believe without getting
defensive or compromising your principles.
Davis Memorial Disciples extend their ministry in the world through Common
Global Ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the
Church of Christ.
Common Global Ministries partners with indigenous churches
in education, development, and evangelization overseas. Disciples fund
missions through Basic Mission Finance offerings received four times a
Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and Pentecost.
Davis Memorial also supports
Week of Compassion
(also known as "One Great
Hour of Sharing"). These funds go directly to support in relief, disaster
assistance, development, and comfort for victims of war.
One other offering is received in September-October for Reconciliation
which goes to battle institutional racism through education and
programs through local congregations.
