A Word About Us


Our beliefs are simple: Jesus Christ is Lord, and we strive to live out Christ's teachings and example in all we do.

In our sanctuary, you'll notice that the communion table occupies a prominent central position. We hold the Lord's Supper, also known as communion, as a weekly celebration during our worship services. This Holy Sacrament is open to all followers of Christ, irrespective of their church affiliation. Our practice of the Lord’s Supper mirrors the Passover feast, during which Jesus shared bread and wine with His disciples on the night before His crucifixion. He broke the bread, gave thanks, and said, "This is my body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of me." Similarly, after supper, He took the cup and said, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is shed for you."

We also emphasize the significance of the sacrament of baptism. We view this sacrament as a transformative entry into a new life in Christ and a union with the broader Christian community. At Seventh Street Christian Church, we baptize by full immersion. However, we welcome members who have been baptized differently without questioning the validity of their previous baptisms or requiring re-baptism for membership.

Seventh Street Christian Church is congregationally governed, with an elected board, elders, and deacons who serve worship and pastoral care functions, as well as both professional and volunteer staff who administer the work of the church.
