What does it mean to be

Open & Affirming?

Riverside Avenue Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

is proud to be an Open & Affirming Congregation.


Being an Open & Affirming congregation means that we welcome people of all gender expressions and sexual orientations to the table of Christ’s communion and to the full life and leadership of the Christian Church.


We believe that all people have been created in the image

of God and are beloved children of God.


We believe that we are called to stand alongside our brothers, sisters, and fellow siblings in Christ and speak truth to

Jesus’ call that ALL are welcome at the Table of our Lord.
