DC’s heritage comes out of the “Restoration Movement,” which seeks to unite all followers of Jesus around the model of Christianity found in the New Testament. We are Christian first and only, but recognise that we are not the only Christians. We believe that in core Christian teachings we ought to be united; that in all other disputable matters there is liberty; but in all things we ought to actively demonstrate love. Our unity comes from Christ and not creed, holy scripture and not tradition, service to God and not hierarchical structures. Our goal is to join in the mission of God and we seek with all that we are, everywhere we are, to usher in God’s new creation in Jesus Christ the Lord.
