|Our Logo and What It Represents
|Some have asked what our logo symbolizes…
First, we have the hands symbolizing that God the Father holds the whole world in His hands; and
that our pursuits and methods shall always be peaceful.
Next, we have the world to symbolize that we are all part of humanity and would never refuse aid
or comfort to anyone. The earth also stands for God’s creation in all its beauty, diversity, and
fragility. It reminds us that without the light of the sun, there would be no life; and without the
light of the Son of God there would be no life, only darkness and death.
Then we come to the cross. The cross symbolizes several different things at once. First it
represents our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is our Supreme Commander, our King and Lord,
and Master, in all things. Next, by being centered within the hands it represents the peace we
seek and that only the Lord can give.
Thirdly we come to the praying person kneeling at the cross being centered over the earth, it
represents our fervent prayer that the world will repent, turn to Christ, and recognize Jesus as
Lord of all . Fourth, it reminds us to pick up our cross daily and follow Him to reach the lost.
Lastly, we come to the words circling the earth. They remind us that, the Lord spoke and it was
so. He provided everything we would ever need and surrounds us with His love through His Word.
He sustains us and helps us never to forget that “Man does not live on bread alone, but on every
word that comes from the mouth of God.” (Mt. 4:4 (NIV)
We were given this logo by divine inspiration of God, in that it very accurately symbolizes all
that the International Disciples of Christ stands for. It represents what we all should strive for,
a closer walk with the Lord and, to follow Him as a Disciple of Christ.
