Restoring the Church

     

“Restorationism” refers to the effort to reverse the fracturing of Christianity into separate Churches, Sects and Denominations that has been growing since the beginning of the Reformation in the 16th century, by seeking a general unity on the basis of a Bible-only faith and practice. A specific Restoration Movement developed in the 19th century, beginning in the United Kingdom and spreading to North America and Canada. This movement had roots in an 18th century reform that drew energy from the Evangelical Revival in Europe and the Great Awakening in America. It began within Presbyterianism and spread to an English-Baptist movement in Scotland. This led to the formation of a small fellowship of “Churches of Christ” in Scotland and England by the mid-19th century, a growing movement in North America, then spreading around the world. In the late 1970's some Evangelical Christian Churches, Independent Congregational Churches, Churches of Christ, English Presbyterian Churches merged to form the United Reformed Church.  Some chose not to do so and formed the Fellowship of Churches of Christ in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The Evangelical Christian Church in England and their ordained ministers likewise stayed as they are and did not merge. But we are all in unity in the Body of Christ.
