  • Community of Christ World Headquarters

    Community of Christ World Headquarters

    1001 W Walnut St
    The Community of Christ, second-largest of the Latter-day Saint denominations, has its world headquarters in Independence, as do several other smaller groups. Its headquarters' complex consists of three buildings, all of which are open to the public: The Temple [18], constructed from 1990-94, sits adjacent to the original "Temple Lot," and clearly dominates the city skyline. Designed by famed Japanese architect Gyo Obata, the edifice evokes the spiral shell of the Nautilus by using a stainless steel spire that rises 300 ft (91 m). Unlike temples of the larger LDS church, the Community of Christ's sacred structure is always open to non-members. Its main sanctuary features a Casavant pipe organ with 60 stops, 102 ranks, and 5685 pipes; recitals are held daily. Also held daily is a Prayer for Peace , which the public is encouraged to attend.The Stone Church [19] was constructed during the late 1800's, and serves a local Community of Christ congregation. Beautiful stained-glass windows and woodwork.The Auditorium is a large structure built between 1926-58 for holding the church's biennial convention. It formerly served at the church's headquarters, prior to erection of the Temple. It houses an Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ with 113 ranks and 6,334 pipes, including an antiphonal console and pipes in the rear balcony of the oval chamber. Seating nearly 6,000 people (as opposed to 1,600 in the Temple's main sanctuary), this building is used not only for religious ceremonies, but community events as well, including local graduation ceremonies and an annual performance of Handel's Messiah [20] that has become a mainstay of the KC Christmas holiday season.
