From time to time the development of our humanity requires a spirit of renewal. We can observe this in humanity’s history. We also know this in our own personal lives. This spirit of renewal helps enliven and strengthen our work, our sense of direction, our lives.

The Christian Community recognizes the Christian way to be a path of freedom. Fostering freeness and responsibility in the individual is seen as crucial in approaching a relationship with Christ Jesus’ deed and message. In keeping with the spirit of freedom, members are not required to sign articles of faith, and are encouraged to form independent judgments in religious matters.
At the center of our work in The Christian Community are the seven sacraments in their renewed form. Through the sacraments, God becomes visible in the earthly world. Sacraments are visible expressions of invisible grace.
In the Christian Community we receive this grace in seven Sacraments:
- The Act of Consecration of Man
- Sacrament of Consultation
- Last Anointing
- Ordination of a Priest
- The Marriage Sacrament
The sacraments are the life and source of true CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY
There are approximately 350 independent Christian Community Congregations worldwide, with several congregations in North America. Each congregation is financially independent and exists through the voluntary pledges and donations of its local members. There are regional and international administrative bodies to coordinate the work at those levels.
