Who Are Disciples?

Who are the Disciples of Christ?

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) began as a part of the Stone-Campbell Movement of the early 19th century in Kentucky and Western Pennsylvania, in an attempt to address the divisions of denominations and return to an earlier, simpler expression of the Christian faith. Proclaiming “no creed but Christ” and “unity is our polar star”, our founders were committed to an open Lord’s Table and the oneness of all Christians.

Now, over two hundred years into the future, you will discover a diverse denomination, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world, attempting to practice radical hospitality and welcome to people of all backgrounds. In a time when many are leaving rigid faith traditions, we believe our openness to intellectual thought and our emphasis on spirituality & justice are needed by an often hurting world.
