Churches of Christ are autonomous Christian congregations associated with one another through common beliefs and practices. They seek to base doctrine and practice on the Bible alone in order to be the church described in the New Testament. Churches of Christ teach that God saves and adds to the church those who hear the gospel, believe in Christ, repent of sin, confess Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and are baptized for the remission of sins (Acts 2:36-38, 47; Rom. 10:9-10).

  • Churches of Christ are autonomous Christian congregations associated with one another through common beliefs and practices. They seek to base doctrine and practice on the Bible alone in order to be the church described in the New Testament. Churches of Christ teach that God saves and adds to the church those who hear the gospel, believe in Christ, repent of sin, confess Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and are baptized for the remission of sins (Acts 2:36-38, 47; Rom. 10:9-10). Churches of Christ in the United States have heritage in the American Restoration Movement. This evangelistic and Bible-based effort began in various places as several people sought a return to the original teachings and practices of the New Testament. Christian leaders including Robert Sandeman, Abner Jones, Elias Smith, James O'Kelly, Rice Haggard, Thomas Campbell, Alexander Campbell, Walter Scott, and Barton W. Stone were trailblazers of similar movements that impacted the eventual phenomenon known as the American Restoration Movement. The Restoration ideal was also similar and somewhat connected to earlier restoration efforts in Europe (such as those of John Glas, Robert Haldane, and James Haldane), as well as Puritan movements in colonial America. Though differing somewhat in details, each group consisted of like-minded Christians who, although often independent of one another, had declared independence from their various denominations and the traditional creeds, seeking a fresh start to return to the doctrines and practices of the New Testament church. They did not see themselves as establishing a new church, but rather sought "the unification of all Christians in a single body patterned after the original church of the New Testament." The names "Church of Christ," "Christian Church," and "Disciples of Christ" were adopted by the movement because they believed these terms to be biblical, rather than denominational. Prior to the U.S. Religious Census of 1906, all congregations associated with the Restoration Movement had been reported together by the Census Bureau. But as the movement developed, tensions grew between those who emphasized unity and those who emphasized restoration, resulting in a division between those who used musical instruments in worship (known as the Christian Church) and those who chose to sing a cappella. The congregations in the a cappella tradition are the subject of this article. While this was the most visible distinction between the two groups, there was also disagreement over the appropriateness of organizational structures above the congregational level such as missionary societies. Both issues highlighted differences in the groups' underlying approaches to Biblical interpretation. For the Churches of Christ, practices not present in accounts of New Testament worship were not permissible in the church, and they could find no New Testament documentation of the use of instrumental music in worship. For the Christian Churches, any practice not expressly forbidden could be considered. Though not officially recognized as distinct movements until 1906, the separation of the Churches of Christ and the Christian Churches had been taking place gradually for decades. The Restoration Movement was not a purely North American phenomenon, and active mission efforts began in the 18th century. There are now Churches of Christ in Africa, Asia, Australia, South America, Central America, and Europe. (en)
  • Die Gemeinden Christi sind eine christlich-protestantische Bewegung autonomer Glaubensgemeinschaften. Der Schwerpunkt ihres Glaubensverständnisses ist die absolute Autorität der Bibel als Gottes Wort und die Wiederherstellung des neutestamentlichen Christentums in seiner ursprünglichen Form. Zu ihren markantesten Merkmalen gehören die heilsentscheidende Gläubigentaufe durch Untertauchen, die Feier des Abendmahls, und eine kongregationalistische Gemeindeorganisation. (de)
  • Las Iglesias de Cristo son iglesias independientes que se identifican con un movimiento religioso que tiene por objeto restaurar la Iglesia tal como se muestra en el Nuevo Testamento de la Biblia. No se consideran una denominación cristiana, y sus miembros se denominan a sí mismos «miembros de la Iglesia que Jesús de Nazaret estableció».[cita requerida] El término también es usado también por la Iglesia de Cristo o Iglesia Cristiana, utilizado por los primeros misioneros en América Latina.[cita requerida] Ambas iglesias tienen su origen común en el llamado Movimiento de Restauración,[cita requerida] y comparten sus raíces históricas y doctrinales.[cita requerida] (es)
  • Le Chiese di Cristo sono delle congregazioni cristiane autonome associate l'una con l'altra da un insieme di pratiche e convinzioni comuni. Queste desiderano basare la pratica e le dottrine unicamente sulla Bibbia e vedono sé stesse come restauratrici della chiesa cristiana del Nuovo Testamento fondata da Gesù Cristo. Molte delle dottrine delle comunità moderne sono comuni al Protestantesimo, ma la differenza si rende evidente quando il protestantesimo moderno ritiene alcuni insegnamenti presenti nel nuovo testamento legati alle convinzioni personali degli Apostoli condizionate dalla mentalità del loro tempo.

  • Kościoły Chrystusowe - nurt chrześcijaństwa zaliczany do ewangelikalizmu powstały w czasie drugiego wielkiego przebudzenia w Ameryce w XIX wieku.Nurt wywodzi się z Ruchu Odnowy (Restoration Movement) którego głównymi działaczami byli Barton W. Stone oraz Thomas Campbell. Barton W. Stone oraz Thomas Campbell byli pastorami kościołów prezbiteriańskich. Ich zamierzeniem nie było tworzenie nowego wyznania, lecz przywrócenie jedności wśród chrześcijan poprzez odrzucenie wszelkich denominacyjnych wyróżników i powrót do prostoty kościoła Nowego Testamentu. W Stanach Zjednoczonych i Kanadzie można wyróżnić trzy nurty ruchu zapoczątkowanego przez Stone'a i Campbella: * Churches of Christ będące największym nurtem tego wyznania w Ameryce, jest to najbardziej konserwatywna gałąź (praktykuje się w niej m.in. wyłącznie śpiew a'capella). * Christian Churches and Churches of Christ, drugi co do wielkości nurt w Ameryce. Tworzą go głównie zbory umiarkowanie konserwatywne * Disciples of Christ, prezentujący nurt liberalny. (pl)
