Christ Church began in the fall of 1975. About thirty people who had been attending church in Pullman began meeting in Moscow under the name of Faith Fellowship. Christ Church is a charter member of the Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches. In the years since our beginning, the church has grown in size and matured in its understanding in matters of doctrine and church government. The following emphases of the church have developed over the years. First and foremost is a desire for our lives to evidence a practical Christianity. Biblical teaching which is not lived out is worse than useless; consequently, there is a clear stress on practical obedience to the Word of God. A second emphasis is on the family. We seek to cultivate the Bible’s high view of children and the importance of a thoroughly Christian education for them. A third emphasis is the importance of a solid and defined doctrinal foundation on which to build our lives as Christians. As evangelical Christians we stand in the stream of historic Protestant orthodoxy, and are seeking to build upon that foundation.
