What Is the Church of Christ?
We are simply members of the Church which Jesus established and for which He died, simply Christians (Acts11:26). For that reason, we do not live and worship according to man-made creeds. Our sole purpose is to worship and serve God in the way He directs in His word.
Since God has given all authority to Christ (Matthew 28:18), and since He serves as God's spokesman today (Hebrews 1:1-2), it is our conviction that only Christ has the authority to say how Christians in His church should live, how they should worship Him and what they should teach. And since the New Testament sets forth Christ's instructions to His disciples, it must serve as the basis for all that we practice and teach. We strive to follow the example of 1st century Christians who were not influenced by traditions and customs of men.
The churches of Christ have no modern bureaucracy, but are each autonomous (self-ruled) and independent of each other. The only tie that binds the many congregations together is a common allegiance to Christ and the Bible. Exactly as the New Testament teaches.
Our worship services consist of things we find the 1st century churches were doing as listed in the New Testament. We believe this pattern is important and that all truth about how to worship God and live to please Him is found only in the Bible (2Pet.1:3). We all need to follow and imitate the example of the New Testament Christians.
"And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." (Colossians 3:17).
