Welcome to Irving North Christian Church
Discover the Disciples
Our story is one of transformation through God's love-- nurturing lives, shaping our city, and changing the world.
We are experiencing transformation at INCC! Our action statement is guiding us through this exciting time of transformation.
What does church mean to you?
At Irving North Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) we know 'Church' can mean different things to different people. People come from different religious traditions and faith backgrounds. Some come from no religion at all. Some people are looking to belong, some to believe. Some aren't sure what they are looking for. At INCC we welcome anyone and everyone looking for a place for God, Jesus, and the Spirit in their life. As part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) we believe:
We practice unity and inclusion at the Lord’s Table
All are welcome to the Lord’s Table for the sake of mission and for the sake of the world as the one family of God. Most congregations do this by celebrating communion every Sunday. That’s why we use a chalice as our logo.
We practice believer baptism
A person makes the choice to follow God’s call rather than the choice being made for them as an infant. Baptism is the basis of membership in the Church and also a mark that every person is called to serve God – the idea of the “priesthood of all believers.”
We are a movement for Christian Unity
We honor our heritage as a movement for Christian unity by cooperating and partnering with other faith communities to work for bringing about wholeness – healing and justice – in the world. This is what it means to be “ecumenical.”
We also honor the heritage of Christian unity by staying together in covenant as a witness to the world that even when we disagree we can still make room, welcoming all to the table as Christ has welcomed us. Our spiritual ancestors were fond of saying, “unity, not uniformity.”
We study scripture for ourselves
We are called to study and read scripture for ourselves. Rather than having tests of faith and creedal statements, we critically and thoughtfully study scripture, taking into account the history and background – the context – in which it was written.
We answer God’s call for justice
We move to answer God’s call for justice particularly in the areas of care for the earth, the challenges for women and children, poverty and hunger and immigration. We seek to do this work in cooperation with other people of faith.
Pastor Sarah, the INCC Staff, and the entire INCC family look forward to seeing you! If you are looking for a church where you can worship, fellowship with friends, care for others, and grow in faith, you can find a home at INCC.
