What We Believe

  • The Christian Church/Churches of Christ is a part of a world-wide fellowship of people whose intention is to be just Christians. (1 Peter 4:16; Acts 11:26)
  • We reject denominationalism and all forms of human creeds, doctrines, and ordinances which are not revealed in the New Testament Scriptures. (Romans 14:23; Galatians 1:8-9; 1 Corinthians 4:6)
  • We acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and recognize Him as the Head of the Church. (Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 1:22-23)
  • We accept the Bible as the only inspired record of God's revelation to man. (Revelation 22:18-19)
  • We believe that the New Testament is the only divine rule of faith and practice given to the followers of Christ, (Jude 3) and that it is the pattern for both the Church and the individual to follow.
  • Therefore, we insist only on those matters which the New Testament sets forth as requirements for membership in Christ's Church.
  • These are as follows:
    • Faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and our Savior, (Mark 16:16)
    • Repentance of sins, (Acts 3:19) Confession of faith in Christ, (Romans 10:9-10)
    • Baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. (Acts 2:38-41)
  • We practice the form of baptism that conforms to the New Testament pattern, this being immersion. (Romans 6:3-4)
  • We accept the design of baptism as revealed in the New Testament which is the biblical condition which brings a person into Christ. (Colossians 1:13; Galatians 3:27)
  • Our worship, like that of the original Church, centers around preaching, the Lord's Supper, Fellowship, giving of tithes and offerings and prayer. (Acts 2:42)
  • Our objective is to preach Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2) so that the world might believe and be saved.
  • We plead for the unity of all believers to accept the basis for unity as expressed in Ephesians 4:4-6. ‚Äč
