History & Heritage

Our heritage is in the network of churches known as the Restoration Movement (sometimes identified as the Stone Campbell Movement or Christian Churches/Churches of Christ.) In keeping with the historic distinctives of this network of churches we commit to embracing unity with all like-minded congregations as well as with other Christian networks and groups.
