The 6 April Birth of Christ:
Shall We Abandon It?
NCW 30, February 1996
Q. Now that the Church is abandoning its Restoration background completely, what will happen to the 6 April birth of Christ celebration? Will it be abandoned too?
No, because we believe that date to be correct. The alternative, which is to revert back to the pagan Brumalia ("Christmas") is, in any case, unthinkable for us.
Many, if not most, most NCCG members still believe in a 6 April but no longer celebrate it. Membership in NCCG is not, however, dependent on believing it, but only what can be 100% concluded from the Bible revelation, viz. that it lies somewhere between March and October.
