What is the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)?
- A Christian Group working toward uniting all Christians in one body.
- Individuals worshiping and serving Christ in their own way.
The Church’s name tells us a lot about the church:
- Christian Church shows that members have a common bond with the church universal. The church stands for Christian Faith, a personal relationship with Christ, whose life and ministry reveal God’s will; Christian Unity, helping each other; working, worshiping, growing together in the way of the gospel.
- Disciple of Christ identifies members as a distinctive body within the church universal. Local names may be used by some congregations, e.g., “First Christian Church,” “Hometown Christian Church.”
Membership in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) means Freedom and Diversity in Worship, Service and Fellowship.
