Churches of Christ in Australia

The family of churches known as Churches of Christ grew out of an early 19th Century movement with origins in both the UK and the USA. Members of the emerging 19th Century Movement wanted to be known only as ‘Christians’ or ‘Disciples of Christ’. Slogans such as ‘Christians only – but not the only Christians’ and ‘Biblical names for Biblical people’ captured this emphasis.

Members of Churches of Christ live under the authority of Christ but this authority is seen as being worked out in the local congregation. Local churches are connected most closely to their State Conferences, who together make up the Council of Churches of Christ in Australia (CCCA). Decisions that most impact the local church are made at a local church level. State and national affiliation for churches allows them to partner together in theological training, ecumenical work, mission work (both overseas and in Australia), ordination and resourcing.The family of churches known as Churches of Christ grew out of an early 19th Century movement with origins in both the UK and the USA.
