Worshipping at Home

“And in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.” -Acts 5:42 Some of the members of the Fellowship currently attend local congregations of other branches of our shared religion.

The Godhead

“Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one God, infinite and eternal, without end. Amen.” -Community of Christ Doctrine and Covenants 17:5h, Latter-day Saint Doctrine and Covenants 20:28 Whether we are trinitarians or polytheistic, God is explained to us through the idea of multiple deity.
