WHO ARE WE
We are members of the Church of Christ with a distinctive plea!
It is primarily a plea for religious unity based upon the Bible. In a divided religious world it is believed that the Bible is the only possible common denominator upon which most, if not all, of the God-fearing people of the land can unite. This is an appeal to go back to the Bible. It is a plea to speak where the Bible speaks and to remain silent where the Bible is silent in all matters that pertain to religion. It further emphasizes that in everything religious there much be a “Thus saith the Lord” for all that is done. The objective is religious unity of all believers in Christ. The basis is the New Testament. The method is the restoration of New Testament Christianity.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
There is one true God who reveals himself to the world as The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
Jesus, the Son of God, is our only Lord and Savior, crucified for our sins and physically resurrected from the dead on the third day. (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; I Corinthians 15)
The Bible is the only written message of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:19-21)
A person is saved by the grace of God and the blood of Jesus Christ. A person must, through faith and obedience, reach out to receive this free gift of salvation. (Ephesians 1:1-10; James 2:14-26)
As with the first Christians, when a person repents and is baptized their sins are forgiven and the Holy Spirit brgins to work in their life. (Acts 2:36-41; Romans 8:5-11)
Only baptized disciples are members of Christ’s Church. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13)
After baptism every new Christian needs to be taught or “discipled” by another Christian to obey all of Jesus’ teachings. (Matthew 28:20)
Every disciple must be committed to the vision of making disciples of all nations. (Matthew 28:18-20)
