Mission Statement

Florence Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) celebrates God’s welcome table of abundant love, grace and acceptance.

Core Values

We welcome radically. We strive to extend Christian hospitality to all people in all settings. Our desire is to turn strangers into friends and for people to experience God’s abundant love, grace and acceptance.

We serve boldly. We will assist people in serving out of their giftedness in ways that are meaningful to them and make a difference for others. We offer settings for people to discover and develop their God-given talents.

We form faith every day. Our desire is to walk alongside people in their journey of faith at every age and life stage. We offer practices and approaches that help people form faith every day, everywhere and with everyone.

Welcome Statement


In response to God’s unconditional love for all people made known to us in Jesus Christ, we are called to be a welcoming and affirming community. We proclaim this statement of welcome to all, especially those who have known the pain of exclusion or discrimination in the church and society. With this proclamation, we commit ourselves to breaking down dividing walls and building a community where all are loved.

Florence Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) embraces diversity of all kinds throughout our neighborhood and the world.  We affirm that all people are created in the image of God, and as God’s beloved children, all are recipients of God’s unconditional love and grace. We welcome the full inclusion of all people in the whole life, leadership and ministries of Florence Christian Church as we journey towards being a community of abundant love, grace and acceptance.

Florence CC is an Open & Affirming congregation, part of AllianceQ – the Disciples LGBTQ+ Alliance.
