Declaration and Address Bicentennial

Written by Joel on September 20th, 2009

Fellow Disciples may know that 2009 marks the bicentennial of Alexander Campbell’s “Declaration and Address.” Many churches are celebrating with Great Communion Sunday on Oct. 4, 2009. The founding document certainly informs our discussion here, particularly on the question about the use of creeds and what Christian unity means. I am going to re-read the document and encourage you to join me. You can see the full text here.


In case early 19th century English is a bit difficult for you to grasp, or you just don’t have the time for all 56 pages, I found a paraphrase version for you. Read it here.
