National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA
Founded in 1950 (forerunner: the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America, founded in 1908).
Basis: The National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA is a community of Christian communions which, in response to the gospel as revealed in the scriptures, confess Jesus Christ, the incarnate Word of God, as Saviour and Lord. These communions covenant with one another to manifest ever more fully the unity of the church. Relying upon the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, the communions come together as the Council in common mission, serving in all creation to the glory of God.
The National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA is affiliated with the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism of the World Council of Churches.
