COCC is part of the Brethren Church in Ashland, Ohio. The Brethren Church is not so much a denomination as it is a movement of men and women who have been united for over 300 years in coming together to search the scriptures and to live by them. It really is as simple as that. All churches are autonomous in their leadership and are bound by their belief in the Scriptures and Jesus Christ as Lord, God and King of the Universe.
