In 1907, several groups of Italian Evangelicals were brought together in Chicago, by the work of the Holy Spirit. Many signs, wonders and conversions followed, encouraging pioneers like L. Francescon, P. Ottolini, G. Lombardi, Lucia Menna, L. Terragnoli, U.Garrazzi, G. Perrou and many others, to evangelize among Italian speaking people across the United States, Panama, Italy, Argentina and Brazil. Consequently, many churches were founded in those places to testify to our Lord’s Gospel.
Throughout the years, decreasing immigration rates and high levels of assimilation among the Italian brethren led to many changes in our congregations and facilitated opportunity for spreading the gospel to others. Today, the Christian Congregation is a multi-ethnic organisation committed to the preaching and practice of Biblical Christianity and to sharing the same hope and communion with churches of like doctrine around the globe.
The Christian Congregation has been in the United Kingdom since 1993. In its early days, the congregation members used to meet occasionally at their houses. The Christian Congregation in the United Kingdom first official worship service took place in 1998 in Catford (South London). The Christian Congregation has since grown and now holds services in many cities within the United Kingdom.
To keep fellowship and maintain an orderly progress, in April of 1972, a convention of various congregations was held in Niagara Falls and the 12 Points of Doctrine were adopted.
