“Unity, which is God’s gift to us,
will become visible as we, individually and collectively,
respond to the reconciling work of the Holy Spirit.
Christ has commanded unity;
the implementation of that command is our responsibility.”


"Just as each of our bodies
has several parts
and each part has a separate function,

so all of us, in union with Christ,
form one body, and as parts of it
we belong to each other."

Romans 12:4-6

The logo of Christian Associates
is a cross and a fish
formed by the letters C and A.

The CROSS is a reminder of God's gift of Christ
and of our common faith in Him.

The FISH reminds Christians of their task
to be fishers of men and women.
