"Go and make disciples...
and surely I am with you always,
to the very end of the age."
Matthew 28:19-20 NIV
Every church was once a new church. Every Christian believer is a spiritual beneficiary of the faith journey of other believers who shared the "good news" of God's love and grace. This timeless truth continues to be the fundamental reason why Disciples are growing in number and faith.
The Christian Church in Ohio is committed to that exciting and rewarding ministry of spreading the "good news" in every way possible. One of the ways we accomplish this is through establishing new churches because. Starting new churches is not only a biblical commandment but it also gives existing congregations the opportunity to transform and grow.
In the 1950's the Ohio New Church Program was born in response to the need to form new churches in communities where people did not belong to a faith community. Now in the 21st century, we are renewing our commitment and are excited about the Disciple churches which are being birthed by new leaders with exciting ideas.
