German Christian leader Christian Kindler sends a telegram to Adolf Hitler claiming that his German Christian movement has 600,000 members and "millions of supporters."

It's possible that Kindler is overstating this to some degree, but it's undeniable that support for the anti-Semitic and racist German Christian movement exists in significant numbers throughout German society.

German Christians strive to redefine the very nature of the Christian church itself. Instead of a universal community of believers, the idea of the Christian church is transformed so that it is dependent upon German notions of race and ethnicity — thus, the church becomes an expression not only of Christian doctrine, but also German culture.

According to German Christians, God is revealed to humanity not just in Scripture and through Jesus, but also through in nature (race) and history.
