Abstract

The Stone-Campbell Movement was established as a unity movement in an attempt to unify all Christians. While the intentions of the movement were to end all denominationalism, they instead created three new denominations. One of the biggest causes of conflict was the idea of cooperation in the form of missionary societies. Members of the movement did not interpret the Bible in the same manner, leading to disagreement over issues not directly within the New Testament. It would be the issue of the missionary society that would lead to the eventual split of the Stone-Campbell Movement.
