First Church of Christ ( Disciples)

Elmira, NY 1918


The pastor is glad to place this Directory in your hands. Its value is evident. Here you will find interesting facts about our great brotherhood as a whole and this church in particular. Here you will fine the names and addresses of our membership as nearly correct as the pastor can make them. This ought to be a great help to you in getting better acquainted. A visiting church makes a growing and strong church. The better you know the people the better you will like them, so visit them often. The church will mean much more to you if you do.

If you find any mistakes in this Directory, please let the pastor know of them. People are on the move all the time and many of them never think of giving the pastor their new address, and then they wonder why he doesn’t cal on them. If there are strangers in your neighborhood, get acquainted with them and invite them to church. If you know of sickness in any of our families please notify the pastor, for oft-times people will send for the doctor and expect the birds to tell the pastor they are sick.

Uphold the pastor in every way; by so doing you can double his power. It takes no more energy to preach to five hundred than it does to preach to one hundred. The cost of the church service is the same in light and heat whether there are five hundred present or one hundred. WHERE WERE YOU LAST LORD’S DAY?

The publication of this book is made possible by the business men whose advertisements you read on its pages. Ou should return them a proper appreciation and then some patronage as well.

Keep the book for reference. Each family is suppose to have one copy, but if another is needed the pastor will gladly furnish it.

Historical Sketch of the First Church of Christ (Disciples)

The first meeting of the Disciples of Christ in Elmira was held Nov. 12, 1893 at a home on College Ave.

Meetings were held continually from this time, on Sunday and Wednesday evenings from house to house with just a few people until Jan. 28,1914, when they met for the first time in a rented hall at 107 E. church St. over a cigar store up two long flights of stairs.

February 4th a Sunday School was started with about 40 scholars.

Meetings were continued under very discouraging circumstances at times, until Sept. 1st ,1896, when Rev. C.C. Crawford was called to take the leadership of the Church. Bro. Crawford continued as pastor for about 13 years and the Church grew in numbers and influence from a few in number to a Church of a few hundred members.

In Oct. 1898, the Church began meeting in an old two story brick building on the corner where the present Church now stands. Afterwards this lot was purchased for the purpose of erecting a suitable church building.

In 1904 the present Church building was started but not finished until 1906. The State Convention was held in the New Church in June 1906 and the Church was dedicated at this time also.

The Church was so deeply in debt for the church building and so unable to keep up the Int. and other expenses that the Church was sold about the year 1909. Bro. Crawford left and being without a pastor and so deeply in debt, these were very dark days for the Church. But there were those who would not give up and finally, in 1909 C.M. Kreidler, the present pastor, was secured for the place by the State Board. After Bro. Kreidler came, he arranged for us to re-purchase the church building and made other arrangements so that, in a short time, our finances were in much better shape. And, during the 9 years of Bro. Kriedler’s Ministry, the Church had frown steadily until the membership at present is more than double what it was when Bro. Kreidler came to us as pastor. The finances, too, have been taken care of and the debt reduced until at present our indebtedness is less than half what it was when Bro. Kreidler came. During all the years since 1898 the State Miss. Soc., has helped the Church by an annual appropriation, which has been very liberal and for which this Church is very grateful.

J.E. Taylor Clerk.


"If you want to work in the kind of a church

Like the kind of a church you like

You needn’t slip your clothes in a grip

And start on a long, long hike.

You’ll only find what you left behind,

For there’s nothing that’s really new;

It’s a knock at yourself when you knock your church;

It isn’t the church, it’s you.

Real churches aren’t made by men afraid

Lest somebody else goes ahead;

When everyone works and nobody shirks

You can raise a church from the dead.

And if when you make your personal stake

Your neighbor will make one, too,

Your church will be what you want to see--

It isn’t your church, it’s you."

Have you ever asked yourself this question--

" What kind of church would this church be,

If every member was just like me?"

Who Are The Disciples of Christ?

The First Church of Christ of Elmira, N.Y., is associated with the people known as the Disciples of Christ or Christians. We are endeavoring to enthrone Christ in the lives and hearts of men. In the last analysis we believe Christ and His gospel must solve all our social, economic and religious problems. Our history, as a district religious movements, began about one hundred and ten years ago. At that time a considerable number if devout Christians, scattered throughout Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky--deploring the divisions that existed in the Protestant world, and feeling deeply the necessity of unity among the people of God--began an earnest inquiry after the true basis of union for Christians. They despaired of finding that basis in many of the rigid creeds and customs that held in bondage the various denominations. Their search for the true basis led them to the conclusion that all human names for God’s children and all human creeds as tests of fellowship are essentially wrong and tend to produce intolerance and perpetuate divisions among Christians. They concluded that the only sure method of effecting a permanent and scriptural basis for union is to be found in the restoration of Apostolic Christianity in teaching and practice .--)John 17:21; 1 Cor.1:10, Eph. 4:4-6, Jude 3)

Pursuing this object they were led to the adoption of the following cardinal reforms:

I----Our Plea

Faith in Jesus as the true Messiah, and obedience to Him as our Law-giver and King, the only test of Christian character and the only bond of Christian character and the only bond of Christian union, communion and co-operation, irrespective of all creeds, opinions, commandments and traditions of men.

II-- Our Aim

1. The restoration of primitive Christianity and consequent union of all the followers of Christ in the " ONE BODY."

2. To Exalt Christ above party and His Word above all human creeds.

3. To build the CHURCH of CHRIST without denominational name, creed or other barrier to Christian unity, whose terms of fellowship shall be as broad as the conditions of salvation and identical with them.

4. To lead sinners to Christ in the clear light of New Testament teaching and example.

III.--Our Practice

We wear no name but Christ; have no priest but Christ; accept no creed but Christ; submit to no authority but Christ’s; ask people to believe on Christ; to repent toward Christ; to confess Christ; to be baptized into Christ; to walk with Christ; to live for Christ; we plead for unity in Chris; CHRIST IS OUR ALL AND IN ALL. In accepting the simple yet all-comprehensive name Christian-- plus nothing, minus nothing, divided by nothing--without prefix or suffix-- we stand as the friends of every movement that looks toward God. We antagonize nothing that is good, but hail with joy all truth and righteousness, whether it be found in Jewish or Gentile, Roman Catholic, or Protestant folds. While we claim to be the Christians ONLY we don’t claim to be the ONLY Christians. We believe that denominationalism mars the unity of the church, so we oppose all divisions and denominational lines as unscriptural and sinful. We believe that all human creeds interfere with the emphasis in the Christ, and so we have no creed but Jesus Christ, and plead for simple loyalty to Him and obedience to His commandments. This is the summum bonum of our holy religion as revealed in the Holy Bible.

IV.-- Our Discipline! The Book of Books

The Holy Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrine is holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s campass, the soldier’s sword, and the Christian’s charter. Here paradise is restored, heaven opened and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is its grand subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure. It is given you in life, will be open at the judgment, and remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility , rewards the greatest labor and condemns all who trifle with its holy contents. Yet most professed Christians give more heed to their man-made, human creeds, disciplines, confessions of faith, prayer-books and catechisms than to this, OUR MOST HOLY BOOK.

V.--Some Points of Our Doctrine

1. Hear--Isa. 1:2; Rom. 10:17

2. Believe--Acts 16:31; Heb. 11:6

3.Repent-- Luke 13:5; Acts 17:30-31

4.Confess--Matt. 10:32; 16:16; Rom. 10:9-10

5.Be Baptized-- Matt.28:19: Acts 10:47-48; 22:16; Rom. 6:4; Gal. 3:27; I Pet. 3:21.

6.Christian Life--I Cor. 15:58; II Pet1:5-11; Rev. 2:10

7.Heaven--II Cor. 5:1; Rev. 22:14

VI--Our Strength

We number more than 1,300,00 members, 8,000 preachers, 10,000 churches, 38 colleges and universities, 5 influential periodicals, etc. We stand second among the great religious bodies in the world-wide Christian Endeavor movement and first in percentage of rapid growth. Last year (1917) we spent $8,000,000 for missions education and benevolence and world-evangelism. We are the fourth largest religious body on earth today and if we make as rapid progress in the next hundred years as we made the last hundred we shall be the greatest religious Protestant body on earth.

VII-- Some of Our Mottoes

1.In faith unity; in opinion liberty; in all things charity.

2. As to essentials , where the scriptures speak we speak; where the scriptures are silent we are silent.

3.We endeavor to call Bible things by Bible names.

4.We can do all things through Him who strengthen us.

5.Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

6.In union there is strength; hence WE SHALL ALL STEP TOGETHER.

The Life That counts

The life that counts must toil and fight;

Must hate the wrong and love the right;

Must stand for truth, by day , by night--

This is the life that counts.

The life that counts must hopeful be;

In darkest night make melody;

Must wait the dawn on bended knee--

This is the life that counts.

The life that counts must aim to rise

Above the earth to sunlit skies;

Must fix its gaze on Paradise--

This is the life that counts.

The life that counts must helpful be;

The cares and needs of others see;

Must seek the slaves of sin to free--

This is the life that counts.

The life that counts is linked with God;

And turns not from the cross --the rod;

But walks with joy where Jesus trod--

This is the life that counts.
