The mission of Springfield Christian Church is to shine the light of God’s truth and love for all people to see (based on Acts 11), and be a faithful, growing church, that demonstrates true community, deep Christian Spirituality, and passion for Justice (based on Micah 6:8).
We are Disciples of Christ, called into ministry through baptism and fed in worship by scripture, music and open communion. By faith, and with God’s help, we search for ways to care for and serve the needs of our church, our community, and our world.
Springfield Christian Church(Disciples of Christ) places Jesus Christ at the center of our worship and services. SCC maintains “There is no creed but Christ.” By this we mean there are no doctrinal positions a person must have in order to worship, serve in, and belong to SCC, other than the avowed relationship of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
We encourage individual Christian growth within the community at large. We encourage you to be a teacher and to be taught. We freely preach the Bible as the living Word of God, open and available to everyone. We emphasize Biblical literacy for all members and encourage personal and group study.
We encourage you to develop and maintain a personal relationship with God. We observe the Lord’s Table each Sunday in worship, finding there the center of our weekly worship experiences. All believers are invited to partake of the elements of Communion and to join us in the symbolic sharing of the body and blood of Christ.
In SCC, the oneness in Christ, stressed by the Apostle Paul, is maintained: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither male or female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galations 3:28).
In manifesting our oneness in Christ, all members and friends of the congregation are encouraged to be leaders and teachers. Classes and study groups are often quite small, reflecting diverse interests in seeking a deeper understanding of our individual relationship with God. God works through each of us and we celebrate that.
