The church of Christ has its origin in the Jerusalem church established by Christ and His apostles in the first century as recorded in the New Testament. The Mt. Vernon church of Christ is a part of a larger religious movement known as the Restoration Movement. This movement began as a result of the frustation that many felt with denominational division that existed in the 17th and 18th centuries and a desire to return and restore New Testament Christiantity (without the trappings of traditions that had become so much a part of the religious landscape). In short, it is a movement that says, "Let's simply do what the first Christians did in order to be what they were. Let's strive to speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent."
The beginning of this congregation reaches back to 1898. The original family met in a small frame building on the same site where the present building stands. The group of believers who assemble within its walls wish to wear only the name "Christian," while serving God with simplicity and gladness of heart (Acts 11:26).
