We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord's Table as God has welcomed us.
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) was founded in United States in the early 1800s. The Disciples have a long history of openness to other Christian denominations. Disciples are frequently involved in cooperative and ecumenical work with other faith traditions.
The Church was founded to promote unity among Christians and values diversity and tolerance. The Disciples’ moderate approach to religion is apparent in the intentional linkage of faith and reason, and thus, a strong commitment to higher education.
Distinctive characteristics of the Church include:
The Disciples have nearly 700,000 members across 46 states and five Canadian provinces.
