Emphasis focuses on the pioneer founders of the denomination, Thomas and Alexander Campbell, Barton Stone, and Walter Scott, and their influence on the movement that emerged out of their efforts. The growth of the denomination will be viewed in the context of national and international history as it grew to take its place among the established, mainstream churches of modern times. Attention will also be given to the Restructure of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) that has shaped its modern identity, polity, ethos, and mission. 


The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) as a movement, a denomination, and a community of faith. It will explore some of the sweep of Church history and context in which the Disciples of Christ came into being. Key figures, issues, documents, and events will be cited. In addition, students will be exposed to current aspects of the denomination, including the ways in which Disciples work through the polity of this unique denomination and how Disciples live faithfully in ecumenical and interfaith dialogue and partnership.
