ABOUT DANVILLE CHURCH OF CHRIST
The origins of The Church go back to the New Testament in the Bible to 33AD after the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and His Disciples establishing it shortly after recorded in the book of Acts. The Danville Church of Christ has it beginnings in Danville, Ohio back to 1893. Originally located in downtown Danville in Knox County, Ohio, the church relocated a short distance away to its current location on Danville Jelloway Road on May 21, 1995 and has had two building phases that make up our current facilities. We are a New Testament Church from a movement called the Restoration Movement made up of independent Christian churches and churches of Christ (Instrumental). No creed, but Christ. Not the only Christians, but Christians only. We are a congregation modeled after the New Testament Church.
