The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a great organization! We are the perfect mix of independent and denomination. We are independent because churches are given the freedom to explore their relationship with God and work out how to articulate that. The individual churches are also given the responsibility to find the person called to their congregation to serve as pastor. We are a denomination because we have a central church and office in Indianapolis. Through the denomination we are able to have a global mission and help other congregations and regions outside of our area. Also, within the region and denomination we can take advantage of resources that would not be available to an independent church. For example, in Georgia the region has a wonderful camp in Gordon. The Summer camping program for youth and young adults is very strong in this state.
There are only three requirements to being a Disciples church: We profess that Christ is God, baptize when the person is old enough to make that decision on their own, and have communion every time we gather as a worshiping community.
