Disciples of Christ

The Disciples of Christ form the largest religious body of purely American origin, promoting a noncreedal form of Christianity in the U.S. The founder of the Disciples of Christ, Thomas CAMPBELL, discouraged by the opposition his efforts met in Ireland, came to the U.S. in 1807, beginning his ministry in Philadelphia as a Presbyterian. Within two years he was resisted by the presbyteries, especially after his famous Declaration and Address, issued "to all that love our Lord Jesus Christ in all sincerity, throughout all the churches."
