In the 20th century there have been two separations: finding the "law" of Christian life exclusively in the New Testament, the Churches of Christ objected to musical instruments in worship and officially withdrew in 1906; the North American Christian Convention, another conservative faction, pulled away gradually between 1926 and 1969 and became known as the Christian Churches and Churches of Christ.在20世紀有兩個離職:尋找“法律”的基督徒的生活只在新約聖經的基督教會反對樂器崇拜和正式撤回於1906年,北美基督教公約,另一個保守的派別,逐漸退出了1926年之間和1969年,被稱為基督教會和基督教會。 In 1968 the mainstream of the Disciples of Christ restructured itself, with a General Assembly directing operations.在1968年的主流基督門徒重組本身,與大會指導行動。
