Lafayette Christian Church,

founded in 1959, is a "place of grace" in Contra Costa County which welcomes all to its community.  An Open and Affirming congregation since the 1990s, it is a community that encourages discussion, embraces differences and reaches out to the needs of the wider world.  We invite you to visit LCC and experience this caring community.

 

LCC is part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), one of ten mainline Protestant denominations. The denomination began in America in 1832, as an effort to unify Christians under a New Testament faith. As such, the Disciples believe in the respect for diversity of opinion and inclusiveness with underlying faith in God and the ministry of Jesus.

 

The Disciples, and LCC, have weekly communion open to all who believe, and adult baptism for mature believers. These are the only two “ordinances” of the church. Other than this, each church is part of a regional and national organization, yet maintains its own autonomy.

 

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has more than 650,000 members and about 3,600 congregations in America.

 

Thank you for visiting the Lafayette Christian Church Web site!
