Christ Community

A young man (late forties) has established a Church in the Cincinnati, OH area. It is called Christ Community . When he was a teenager, this young man and his brother were in my Sunday School class and were friends with my teen age sons. Later after he grew up and got married he was on staff at the ALJC church in Cincinnati. A few years ago he left that church and established a new congregation. They have been meeting for about 4 years and I think attendance is around 50. He is affiliated with Christ Community in Columbus, Ohio whose web site is

Their doctrinal statement can be found at

Is anyone here familiar with Christ Community in Columbus, Ohio or have you visited there?

In a round about way it is pretty clear they baptize in Jesus name if you read their belief under baptism. They use all of the scriptures in Acts as their mode of baptism and then proclaim that this fulfills Matthew 28:19.

I know Gary Zoz! Infact I was great friends with his son Gary Jr. when we were younger. Have you kept up with any of them?

We used to see Gary preach on tv several years ago when he was on staff at the Covenant Apostolic Church. His younger brother Bob was active in the choir. Bob pastored a church for a while in Fairfield, OH (about 20 miles north of Cincinnati) but is not pastoring right now. Gary is pastoring Christ Community in Sharonville, OH (about 12 miles north of Cincinnati). My wife and I visited that church back in April (I think it was April). We were just talking about that earlier this evening. I hope to get back there in a month or so. It's only about 7 miles from where I live.

As far as I know, Bob is working at GE. I'm not sure what Gary does besides pastoring. If you want their email addresses, PM me and I'll give them to you. It probably won't be until some time tomorrow before I get back on here.
