Our Larger Family
Indian Creek Church is a member of a larger family of churches, called the Church of the Brethren. This family of churches is comprised of approximately 1,000 congregations in the U.S. and Peurto Rico. In addition, we relate as sister organizations to a few churches in Brazil and Spain; dozens in India, the Dominican Republic and Haiti; and a few thousand churches in Nigeria.
We would love to share with you this concise introduction to the Church of the Brethren, along with this one-page Church of the Brethren history. Another page describes some of the more destinctive Brethren practices.
In the U.S., our Brethren family of churches is organized into sixteen Districts. Our church is part of the Atlantic Northeast District, covering eastern Pennsylvania and a few churches in New Jersey, Delaware, and Maine.
