Isaac Long’s Barn - GCAH, 26 April 2006 [cached]
One of the decisive events in the eventual formation of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ occurred when Philip William Otterbein met Martin Boehm on the farm of Isaac Long about two miles of Neffsville in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
When Otterbein arrived at the meeting, one of those preaching on the threshing floor of the large barn was Boehm.
Otterbein listened intently to his sermon. It resonated with Otterbein's own spiritual experience of "assurance" which occurred when he was a pastor in Lancaster in 1754. Otterbein was greatly moved by Boehm's message, at the end of which he went forward, embraced Boehm and exclaimed, "Wir sind brüder! ("We are brethren!). Thus began a friendship which lasted until Boehm's death in 1812 (Otterbein died in 1813) and led to the formation of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ which entered into union with the Evangelical Church in 1946 to form the Evangelical United Brethren Church.
