We are Foothills Christian Church

Foothills is a progressive community of faith in the North Phoenix Valley. We are a growing congregation, with a vision of providing our neighbors with meaningful human connections in a fragmented world; opportunities to serve and challenges to grow; and a culture of sharing with those in need. We are also part of the global community through prayer, education, giving, and our partnership as a Global Mission Church. We welcome all people, no matter where your life or faith journey has taken you up to now. 

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

"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."

  -Disciples of Christ Identity Statement


As Disciples We are...


  • A people of the book: We hold the centrality of scripture, recognizing that each person has the freedom - and responsibility - to study God's word within the community of the church.
  • An identity worth celebrating: We practice the baptism of believers, which emphasizes that God's grace demands a response of faith and discipleship, while also recognizing the baptism preformed in other churches. 
  • People of the table: We gather for the Lord's Supper as often as possible, experiencing at this table the gracious, forgiving presence of Jesus Christ.
  • The priesthood of all believers: We affirm the priesthood of all believers, rejoicing in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which include the gift of leadership, that God has given for the common good.
