Christian Church ( Disciples of Christ ) is a community of about 850, 000 Christians in 3, 800 congregations in the United States and Canada. Two groups of frontier Christians came together in 1832 to form the foundation of today's Christian Church ( Disciples of Christ ). They shared the view that people should not be excluded from fellowship in the church because they didn't adhere to a particular human-made creed. They used to say there is "no creed but Christ." Today's Christian Church ( Disciples of Christ ) still thinks that way. We study the Bible to deepen our connection to God through Jesus Christ, and to discover what God wants us to do. We believe that God is calling Christian Church ( Disciples of Christ ) of the 21st century to be a faithful, growing church that demonstrates true community, deep Christian spirituality and a passion for justice. Our mission is to be and to share the good news of Jesus Christ, witnessing, serving and loving from our doorsteps to the ends of the earth. We are devoted to strengthening our congregations for this mission. Many Disciples have conservative views. Many others have liberal views. But we share the belief that we are united in our faith that "Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, the Savior of the World."
