Church leaves denomination over universalism
Attendance at First Christian Church of Visalia is a little lighter these days. That's because last month members of the church voted to sever ties with its denomination Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

The move came after the denomination's general assembly passed a resolution over the summer encouraging interreligious engagements, said Michael Messinger, pastor of First Christian Church in Visalia.

The denomination has long had a reputation for being too liberal, Messinger said.

"It was very hard. It was difficult for everybody, but I think most of the people here —our ultimate allegiance is to Jesus Christ, not a denomination," he said. ...

I should've searched. Thanks, I actually was curious. Perhaps in areas I've lived in, there aren't enough people of a single denomination/persuasion to require two churches in the same town.

Sorry to disappoint you Jim, but Campbellite denominational problems aren't a great interest of mine.

BTW, are there any "2nd Christian" or "2nd Baptist" churches around?

I'm surprised that Neil, didn't make some references to Campbellites, this article would have been a good place to do it.

http://withchrist.org/campbellites.htm

The above is a very good article on them. I know many and graduated from a Church of Christ university, Pepperdine University so I know many are very nice people, but I wish they would correct their errors!

Closer to home and on ecumenism generally,

Apparently one of this Churches mottos is "Where the Scripture speaks we speak, where the Scriptures are silent we are silent."

Yet they say quote, "In the Bible God is not the worlds creator...."
Another is "In the Bible salvation is a broad term that means deliverance from all threats to life both now and in the life to come."
(Wonder how the Martyrs would react to that??)
Salvation apparently also means, amongst other things, "forgiveness for all human gone-wrongness....peace in society....freedom from oppression and anxiety..."

Wonder which Bible they read/write???

Amen! I believe that spiritual unity will be impossible for Christians until Christ returns, because of the wolves that have infiltrated the flock. Denominations will no longer exist when Christ comes, but until then, the only unity will be in those wolves, as they push for a One World Church.

If more would serve Christ - rather than the denomination they are part of -the Church of Jesus Christ would be much healthier.

We used to worship in a fundamentalist church with good doctrine where the minister would pray for "our sister churches in our denomination" and I always wondered if they really thought there WERE other faithful churches outside their denomination.

The daughter of one of the ministers once said she couldn't marry "outside" of the denomination becuase anyone on the outside would HAVE to be wrong about some point of doctrine! That is the pinnacle of denominational self-centeredness.

I have yet to find a verse in the Bible which supports denominationalism and I'm confident it is part of the devil's effots against the true works of Christ in our midst.
