THE CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP TRAINING INSTITUTE
HAS WITHDRAWN PARTNERSHIP
FROM
THE NEW DENOMINATION IN GHANA CALLED:
RESTORATION CHRISTIAN CHURCH (RCC)
 
The Christian Leadership Training Institute has withdrawn its partnership from the organization in Ghana known as Restoration Christian Church (RCC).  This is not a decision that we wished to make.  However, due to their lack of cooperation with our concerns for the autonomy of the local congregations, we had no other choice. 

This organization was formally know as the Fellowship of Christian Churches.  In July 2014, the Fellowship changed its name to Restoration Christian Church and adopted a new constitution and by-laws which set up a presbytery denominational structure.  They also claimed ownership of all member congregations and their property.
  The new denomination (RCC) does not follow Restoration Movement principles.

For more than eighteen months, the African and the American leaders of four independent Christian Church missions in Ghana tried to work with the officers of the RCC to amend their new constitution and by-laws in a way that would restore local autonomy to the congregations.  When the RCC clearly refused efforts to amend their documents in April 2016, a new fellowship for independent Christian Churches was formed which is called Pistis Christian Churches. 

This new organization is a voluntary fellowship similar to the one that was abandoned by the RCC.  The congregations started by independent Christian Church missions are now individually deciding whether they will stay under the authority of the RCC or join the new fellowship called Pistis Christian Churches.  The word pistis is the Greek word for Faith.  The new Fellowship wished a more Biblical name, but all were taken by other Christian organizations registered in Ghana.
