As the Clergy, Staff, Officers, and Members of the Board of Directors of First Christian Church, Chattanooga, TN, we name ourselves Disciples of Christ.
To name ourselves as Disciples is to clearly claim certain things as core to our Discipleship:
Because we claim these things, we proclaim that Black Lives Matter.
In doing so, we confess the following:
These are hard truths to confess. But we do not confess them to be absolved. We confess them to re-affirm our Discipleship as a commitment and call to be an anti-racist, pro-reconciling Church, a part of the whole Body of Christ.
We are called:
These are commitments that require hard work.
These are commitments that challenge us, both in how we live our personal and public lives.
These are commitments that we take on prayerfully.
We call on our faithful friends here in Chattanooga, in our wider church, and across the whole Body of Christ, to do the same, so that we might embody the prayer Christ had for his Disciples: That we might all be ONE (John 17:21).
