Here, Christians are working together as the local church, following the pattern set forth in the New Testament of the Bible. The church of Christ is made up of people who have been drawn together for worship and service by a common faith in Jesus Christ. We wish simply to be called Christians and we make it our goal to live up to all that such a glorious name represents. We meet together each Sunday to worship the Lord in spirit and truth (John 4:24). In addition, we take time to study from the Bible so that we can understand how to live as God would have us to (2 Timothy 2:15).
A LOCAL GROUP
– One church with Christ as our head (Ephesians 1:20-23). As individuals, we share a fellowship with Christians all over the world. When we were saved, the Lord added us to His church (Acts 2:47). The Head of the church is Christ and its headquarters is in heaven.
WITH LOCAL LEADERSHIP
As a local church we are self-governing; that is, we do not answer to or follow the direction of any man or council of men outside of the congregation. We adhere to no human creed. We are free to study, teach and work as the Bible leads us. The Scriptures alone tell us what is good for us to do (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
A COMMON GOAL
Since the scriptures are our only guide in religious matters, it is our desire to do everything the scriptures teach and nothing else.
