In order to follow Jesus and worship God: We will live and tell the good news of Jesus Christ in all we do; we will serve our neighbors; and we will minister to our fellow Christians.
Our mission comes straight out of the New Testament: just as the first disciples were commissioned by Christ to spread the Good News of the Gospel to all nations, we accept that same call to love, witness, and serve "from our doorsteps to the ends of the earth."
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) was founded on several basic principles that continue to guide the church today:
"No creed but Christ"
"Where the scriptures speak we speak; where the scriptures are silent we are silent."
"In essentials, unity; in nonessentials, liberty; in all things, charity."
Disciples Christian Church began its ministry as a congregation in 1971. With the city of Plano expanding westward, several active members of First Christian Church perceived the call to start a new church in this growing area. As with the early church, Disciples Christian Church first met in members' homes for worship and fellowship. When the gatherings outgrew individual homes, the congregation starting meeting at Wilson Middle School. In 1978, we moved to our current location on the corner of Independence and Park.
From the very beginning, Disciples Christian Church has been active in the community; we take seriously our call to serve our neighbors. In the early years, a number of local agencies operated in our facilities, including the Palmer Drug Abuse Program and the South Collin County Infant Program. Today, we are host to many community groups, such as the Boy Scouts, and Nar-Anon. In addition, we contribute regularly to many social service agencies through financial and volunteer support.
