Additional Information: 

The reformed protestant United Church of Christ was born through the union of two other church groups in 1957. Two other local Cleveland, Ohio churches joined together to form the modern United Church of Christ. These churches were the 23-year-old Evangelical and Reformed Church and the 26-year-old Congregational Christian Churches.

The union combined both traits from the parent group to form the new United Church of Christs’ identity. The new church allowed freedom within the order compared to the traditional church structure, but incorporated elements of the European Reformation to stay tether to the past.
