Disciples in USA /Canada

 
Statement Of Identity
 
We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world.  As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord's Table as God has welcomed us.
 
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is one church which shows itself in three ways:
  • Local Church —Hood River Valley Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) meets weekly for worship, monthly for business, and as needed to build up the Body of Christ and show compassion in God's name. Local churches have primary responsibility for teaching, pastoral care, spiritual development,  local missions, calling ministers and property management.
  • Regional Church—The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Oregon meets in even numbered years with 38 congregations including HRVCC. 
 
Regions have primary responsibility for Camp and Conference, Leader Development, Certification of Ministers, and New Church Development.
  • General Church—The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the U.S.A. and Canada meets in odd numbered years in the summer at various locations and has headquarters in Indianapolis, IN.
 
The General Church has primary responsibility for Homeland and Overseas Missions, Disaster Relief & Reconstruction assistance, Resources for church investments and renovations, Pension & Health Care for employees and the Disciples Historical Society.
