The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the Southwest! (CCSW) is 373 congregations across all of New Mexico, Texas and the panhandle of Oklahoma , seeking to serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the incredible mission fields where God has placed us. We are part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), an American-born mainline church organization that places its core value in belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We live that out by celebrating together regularly around the Lord's Table to share bread and cup - welcoming all to share with us.
We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world.
As part of the one Body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.
