Our History

  This church is part of the religious movement known as "Disciples of Christ" or
  "Christian Church." This movement was born shortly after the American
  Revolution, in 1809. It is the largest Protestant communion founded on American
  soil. This movement arose as a protest against the sectarianism of the 19th century
  which had divided and weakened the universal church. Our pioneers, led by
  Thomas and Alexander Campbell, presented a plea and a plan for Christian unity
  on the basis of the restoration of New Testament Christianity. It was their hope to
  restore the spirit of Christ as authority in the church instead of demanding
  submission to councils, creeds, or ecclesiastical hierarchies.

  This remains the hope and program of this church and will continue to be so. We
  believe the divisions among the churches to be wrong in the sight of God and against
  His will for the church on earth.

  See Ephesians 4:4-6; John 17:20-21; Romans 12:4-5.
 
   We believe that "the Church of Jesus Christ on earth is essentially, intentionally and
  constitutionally one."
