    1992 GENERAL CONFERENCE
    RESOLUTION: CHANGING NAME

    submitted by the Moss Mission, ěstland District, Norway

    The following document has been included on the LDS Page because of the Church's early connection with the Restoration movement. 1992 saw the final separation of the Restoration roots from the New Covenant Church, of which this document is an important landmark.

    1. Whereas, the name "Independent Church of Jesus Christ" is a relic of the former longer name, "Independent Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints", the word "Independent" being appended to distinguish the saints from other Latter Day Saints;

    2. Whereas, we are no longer "Latter Day Saints" but "New Covenant Christians";

    3. Whereas the name "Independent" tends to be confusing in the public mind when doing missionary work;

    4. Whereas, the word "Independent" has frequently been abused by members of the Church to mean that they should stand alone and apart from the Body, thus making for disharmony and disunity;

    5. Whereas, the name "Independent Church of Jesus Christ" gives the impression that we are a breakoff of some other Church bearing the name "Church of Jesus Christ";

    6. Whereas, the true name of the Church is either the "Church of Christ" or the "Church of Jesus Christ";

    7. Whereas, the Lord is not too concerned about the name of the Church provided it clearly indicates that it is His, and provided the Church is agreed as to the name;

    8. Whereas, the sense that we are a "New Covenant" conveys more meaning as to the Church's mission and position relative to Christianity as a whole than the name "Independent" does;

    9. Whereas, the word "Independent" tends to convey the meaning that we want nothing to do with other Christians in the minds of some, and whereas we are supposed, as part of our Five Commissions, to be serving other churches;

    10. Whereas, the removal of the word "Independent" from the Church name in no way alters the original intention of that name, which is to stand alone and independent in Christ;

    11. Resolved, the the Church cease being called the "Independent Church of Jesus Christ" and be called, from 6 April 1992, THE NEW COVENANT CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST (in Norwegian, DEN NYE PAKTS JESU KRISTI KIRKE);

    12. Resolved, that this name change represent a final severing from the saints' past as "Latter Day Saints" and its beginning as truly "New Covenant Christians" and its wider ministry to Christendom and to the world;

    13. Resolved, that this new name symbolise the death of the old "Aaronic Church" and its rebirth into its Melchizedek Endowment.

    Historical Endnote

    This resolution was adopted prior to the meetings in Bergen which led to the disorganisation of the Church. The name, "New Covenant Church of Jesus Christ", was therefore only used for less than two weeks. The name was reused for a number of years during the NCCF (New Covenant Christian Fellowship) phase (1992-6) as a designation for a mesoteric organisation bridging the NCCF and Holy Order. It ceased to be used in 1996 with the organisation of the New Covenant Church of God.
