The Church on Grove
Centennial Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) was born on the American Frontier at the 1801 Great Revival held at Cane Ridge, Kentucky. Seeking to restore New Testament Christianity, early founders Alexander and Thomas Campbell and Walter Scott emphasized unity through Jesus Christ. They encouraged all believers to study scripture and to embrace its teachings as the central authority for their lives. They taught that all baptized believers were ministers of the gospel, called to continue Jesus' ministry in the world where one lives. Our early founders rejected church teachings that required examination by church officials before one could participate at the Lord's Table and encouraged all believers to respond to Christ’s invitation to communion weekly.
From these early roots, today's Disciples consider ourselves to be a movement for God's wholeness in a fragmented world. We embrace the following core values:
