our mission

The mission of Jeffersontown Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is to celebrate, practice, and share our faith in Jesus Christ for the glory of God and the common good. We are committed to extending God's gracious welcome and extravagant love to all people and aligning our words and deeds with the prophetic witness of the Bible - to seek justice for the oppressed, to proclaim good news to the poor, to provide healing and care to the vulnerable, and to point the world toward the coming realm of God.

beliefs and practices

As members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and proclaim him Lord and Savior of the world. In Christ’s name and by his grace we accept our mission of witness and service to all people. We rejoice in God, maker of heaven and earth, and in God’s covenant of love which binds us to God and to one another. Through baptism into Christ, we enter into newness of life and are made one with the whole people of God. In the communion of the Holy Spirit we are joined together in discipleship and in obedience to Christ. At the Table of the Lord we celebrate with thanksgiving the saving acts and presence of Christ. Within the universal church we receive the gift of ministry and the light of scripture. In the bonds of Christian faith we yield ourselves to God that we may serve the One whose kingdom has no end.
