Thanks for being interested in our congregational life. Here are some thoughts to keep in mind as you browse this site:
This website is primarily a place for communication and resources for those of us who together share life in Christ and refer to ourselves as Disciples’ Fellowship. Trying to infer from what you find here all that we are, believe, and practice, will probably lead you to some inaccurate conclusions.
If you want to find out anything about us, then let’s sit down and talk over coffee or give us a phone call. We prefer conversation and personal interaction. A website is a poor substitute for a conversation, and we prefer the personal.
However, if you only want some basic information, you can find when we have some of our gatherings, directions to the place we often meet on Lorna Road here in Birmingham, and a bit of our story under Journey.
Many times visitors seem to expect to find a statement of belief on a group’s website. Simply stated, we are Christians who strive to learn and live the way of Jesus. The historic creeds of the church set out important statements about the mysteries of our trinitarian God, the coming of God to us in the person of Jesus, and other beliefs. We attempt to live and believe the apostolic faith that has come from God and is communicated to us through scripture and the history of God’s church.
The Christian way of life and the beliefs which undergird that way of life are too numerous to reduce to a list here. If you have specific questions, let’s talk and we’ll tell you what we hope to do and believe, and confess ignorance if we don’t know how to answer your questions.
The peace of God be with you.
