Open & Affirming

Often when you hear “All are welcome,” all doesn’t really mean all.  At Highland Park Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) ALL MEANS ALL! This includes ALL persons regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status, political views, or physical or mental capacity.  We recognize, celebrate, and give thanks for the many diverse gifts of God among us.  ALL persons have worth and are unique creations made in the image of God. 

As disciples of Christ, we declare ourselves to be an Open and Affirming Congregation, welcoming ALL to participate fully in the life of the church including leadership, baptism, communion, marriage, and ALL forms of ministry.  We are a community of faith that works toward openness and understanding, offering justice, healing, love, and wholeness for ALL people. 

Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, as God’s beloved, ALL are worthy and welcome!
