The Lord’s Day in Christianity is Sunday, the principal day of communal worship. It is observed by most Christians as the weekly memorial of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, early on the first day of the week. In the first centuries, Sunday became a festival day in honor of Christ’s resurrection, yet on the seventh-day, the Sabbath, they would rest.

Nearly all of the early Christians were Jewish converts. First-day worship, either Sunday morning or Saturday night, was combined with the observance of seventh-day Sabbath. Over time, Sunday came to be known as the Lord’s Day. The early Christians believed that the resurrection and ascension of Christ signaled the renewal of creation, making the day on which God accomplished it a day analogous to the first day of creation when God made the light. Some of these writers even referred to Sunday as the “eighth day.” (Adapted from Wikipedia.)

In the Church of Jesus Christ in Christian Fellowship, being a nondenominational movement, we are open to individuals, families, and synagogues and congregations worshiping the Lord our God in either or both the Biblical Sabbath, Saturdays, or the Lord’s Day, Sundays. The important thing is that we take a day out of the week for worship.
