The United Church of Christ was formed by a merger in 1957 of two churches that were themselves products of church unions. The Congreg Christian Churches came from a 1931 union of Congreg churches, dating from the early days of European settlements, and the Christian Churches, a restorationist movement of the 18th century. The Evangelical and Reformed Church was a 1934 union of two Germanic churches, the German Reformed Church descended from Heidelberg, and a Prussian merger of Luth and Reformed Churches. Thus, with the merger of these two churches, the UCC blended four traditions in one body. That blending affords the UCC’s major challenge. It has to work to maintain an ecumenical and theological identity in its diverse membership. Becoming multiracial and multicultural, while the United States itself becomes more pluralistic, is also a challenge for the UCC. The UCC maintains relations with major Presb and Ref churches. It has full communion with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and with the Evangelical Church of the Union, Germany. In 1997 agreement was reached with the Evangelical Luth Church in America to have full communion and exchange of ministers. The UCC has an immense network of affiliated institutions. It is related to 306 health and welfare organizations, although these have independent operations. There are also 46 affiliated academies, colleges, and theological seminaries, which also operate independently.
