Beliefs

What is the Church of Christ?

That’s a good question! Simply put, we are a non-denominational, New Testament church.
Members of the Church of Christ:

  • Seek to duplicate the non-denominational church of the first century.
  • Take the Bible as our supreme guide.
  • Reject doctrines and practices that were introduced after the close of the New Testament.
  • Seek to be Christians only.
  • Believe this is the one and only way to unite all who are seeking to follow Christ. 

WE BELIEVE:

† God is all knowing, all powerful, always present, and the reason for all we do. 

† Jesus is God’s one and only son and through faith in Him and obedience of Him comes eternal life.

† The Bible is God’s inspired word and that, through the study and application of it, we have everything we need for daily living and Godliness.

† That baptism, by immersion is a participation in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus and is essential for salvation.

† Worship is a celebration following the pattern of the New Testament (prayer, singing, communion, preaching/ teaching, giving) and begins with a transformed life.

† All Christians are called to be servants. 

† Families of all sizes are the foundational institution of society, ordained by God and we must remain true to the foundational values specified in the Bible as a guide for family life.

† In unity based on one body, one spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism and one God. (Eph. 4:4-6)

† That the blessings of Jesus are not for us alone and it is our duty to share the Gospel with others.

 

We believe....

In the salvation of man’s soul there are 2 necessary parts: God’s part and man’s part. God’s part is the big part, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift if God; not of works, that no man should glory” (Ephesians 2:8-9). The love which God felt for man led him to send Christ into the world to redeem man. The life and teaching of Jesus, the sacrifice on the cross, and the proclaiming of the gospel to men constitute God’s part in salvation.Though God’s part is the big part, man’s part is also necessary if man is to reach heaven. Man must comply with the conditions of pardon which the Lord has announced. Man’s part can clearly set forth in the following steps:

  • Hear the Gospel. “How shall they call on him whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe him whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14).
  • Believe. “And without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing unto him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that seek after him” (Hebrews 11:6).
  • Repent of past sins. “The times of ignorance therefore God overlooked; but now he commandeth men that they should all everywhere repent” (Acts 17:30).
  • Confess Jesus as Lord. “Behold here is water; What doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, if thou believeth with all thy heart thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God”                    (Acts 8:36-37).
  • Be baptized for the remission of sins. “And Peter said unto them, Repent ye, and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ unto the remission of your sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:38).
  • Live a Christian life. “Ye are an elect race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, that ye may show forth the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).

OPEN INVITATION

Now that you are aware of a church in the 21st century which is built according to the blue prints of Christ’s original church, why not become a member of it? In becoming a member of it, you will be called upon to do nothing which you cannot read in the New Testament. You will then live and worship just as the apostle-guided Christians of the first century did.Not only is this return to New Testament Christianity a wonderful basis upon which all believers in Christ can unite, it is absolutely solid ground. If we do just what our Lord commanded we know that our salvation is certain.                                 Come with us as we go back to the Bible, back to Christ and his church!
