Wabash Christian Church

Beliefs

Wabash Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is located in the heart of downtown Wabash.  Established in 1842, we have a rich history of tradition, and at the same time we are excited about the ways we can share the love of Christ within our church and outside our church walls.

Our mission statement is “Committed to spreading the good news of the love of Christ through service to all.”  We seek to accomplish this through many ways in our particular ministries, educational experiences, outreach missions, etc.

Throughout our years, we have strongly been affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Regionally we are connected to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Indiana.

Diversity of Belief

We are disciples of Christ who hold varied beliefs about God, Jesus, faith, church, life, and practically everything else!  We really do!  It’s because of that fact that we have some great conversations! In the midst of our diversity, we come together knowing that it is the unconditional love of God that binds us to each other.

We are not perfect by any means.  However, we strive to hear the Spirit of God working in our church, our community, and our world!

We believe that everyone is created in the image of God.

Baptism

Just as the baptism represents the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, it symbolizes the death and burial of the old self of the repentant believer, and the joyous birth of a brand new being in Christ.

Those who founded the Disciples movement taught baptism by immersion as the accepted form.  With that said, we affirm infant baptisms performed in other traditions because God’s grace works through human efforts and interpretations!

Baptism, as a gift of grace, received by faith, expresses its meaning in a variety of images: new birth; a washing with water; a cleansing from sin; a sign of God’s forgiving grace; the power of new life now and the pledge of life in the age to come. The meaning of baptism is grounded in God’s redemptive action in Christ, it incorporates the believer in the community in the body of Christ, and it anticipates life in the coming age when the powers of the old world will be overcome, and the purposes of God will triumph.

Communion

The Lord’s Supper or Communion is celebrated in weekly worship. It is open to all who are followers of Jesus Christ because it is the Table of Christ and he welcomes all around the table.  The practice of Holy Communion has become the central element of worship within the Disciples tradition.

Disciples’ observance of the Lord’s Supper emanates from the upper room, where Jesus shared bread and wine with his disciples on the eve of his crucifixion. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, the living Christ is met and received in the sharing of the bread and the cup, representative of the body and blood of Jesus. The presence of the living Lord is affirmed and he is proclaimed to be the dominant power in our lives.
