Statement of Faith

  1. We call ourselves Christians and our churches may be referred to by any New Testament names, i.e. Christian church or Church of Christ or church of God, etc. We don’t claim to be the only Christians but we try to be Christians only.
  2. We believe in God, the Father.
  3. We believe Jesus is the Christ, the virgin born Son of the living God and our Lord and Savior, crucified for our sins and raised from the dead.
  4. We believe in the Holy Spirit, both as to His agency in conversion and as a dweller in the heart of the Christian.
  5. We accept the Bible, including the Old and New Testaments, as the infallible word of God. It is our only book of discipline. (So we have no name but Christian, no creed but Christ and no book but the Bible.)
  6. We believe in the future punishment of the wicked and the future reward of the righteous.
  7. We believe that the divine God is a prayer-hearing and prayer-answering God.
  8. We observe the Lord’s Supper on every Lord’s Day. To this table we neither invite nor turn away. It is the Lord who invites His children to partake.
  9. We plead for the unity of all God’s people. Where God has a child, we have a brother. Our purpose is to eliminate confusion by restoring the New Testament church in purity and practice in this third Millennium.
  10. We maintain that the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper should be observed as closely as possible to the way they were in the days of the apostles.
  11. Our mission is to seek and save the lost, to reach and teach the next generation, through the Gospel of Jesus Christ in obedience to the Great Commission.
  12. We believe God created us as a man or a woman.
  13. We believe the act of marriage is between one man and one woman.
  14. Fellowship is not based on creeds or a set of rules but on a commitment to the faith that Jesus Christ is Lord of all.
