A wonderful map of Georgia.

Georgia

World Convention is currently building a global reference for the  countries and territories where we know there are Christian – Churches of Christ – Disciples of Christ Congregations. Of the 193 United Nations States, the Stone-Campbell Movement exists in 165. This listing includes other nations and territories, numbering 194 countries where there is at least one representation of our churches.

Rather than waiting for comprehensive, complete information we are putting up the details we have available. If you can correct or add to this information, please contact the World Convention Office with details at gary@worldconvention.org.

Background

Georgia is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the southeast by Azerbaijan. The capital and largest city is Tbilisi. Georgia was occupied by Soviet Russia in 1921, becoming the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic and part of the Soviet Union until independence in 1991.

Religion

83.9% Orthodox Christianity, 3.9% Armenian Christians, 0.8% Roman Catholic, 10 % Muslim.

Stone-Campbell Presence

Due to the humanitarian work of Healing Hands International and Partners in Progress, a Church of Christ was formed in Tbilisi in 1995. Another congregation is in T’elavi. The International Church of Christ is in Tbilisi.
