Biographical / Historical
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a Protestant denomination of approximately 800,000 members in the United States and Canada. It's one of the largest faith groups founded on American soil. In 1808 Thomas Campbell and others founded the Christian Association of Washington, Pennsylvania. That group adopted the motto "Where the scriptures speak, we speak; where the scriptures are silent, we are silent." Campbell and others were called "reformers" for their desire to restore the Church's first century roots, known as the Restoration Movement.
