Our Identity...

We are part of the Christian Church  (Disciples of Christ), a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world.  

As part of the one Body of Christ, we recognize and welcome all Christians.  We believe that all Christians are called to be one in Christ and to seek opportunities for common witness and service.

Brief history...

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) grew out of two movements in Pennsylvania and Kentucky.  These movements, led by Thomas and Alexander Campbell, a Presbyterian Scotch-Irish immigrant father and son, and Barton Stone, a fifth-generation American that was also a Presbyterian, united in 1832.  The church hoped to restore Christian unity by returning to New Testament faith and practices.  

Other groups such as the Churches of Christ eventually pulled away due to disagreements over organized missionary activity and instrumental music.
