No. Most congregations that are part of the Church of Christ denomination follow a very strict interpretation of the Bible. Some do not even allow pianos or organs in the church since these instruments are not mentioned in Scripture. In contrast, the United Church of Christ has a somewhat liberal or open-minded reputation. The United Church of Christ was formed in 1957 by a merger of the Congregational Christian and the Evangelical and Reformed (“E & R”) denominations. The national offices of the UCC are in Cleveland, Ohio. Congregations are self-governing. There is no official doctrine that all UCC congregations must follow. Some congregations might be thought of as conservative, but a larger number probably view themselves as moderate or liberal.
