We are the New Testament Church and enjoy fellowship with those who pattern their worship according to the New Testament and seek biblical authority for the direction of the Church. We do not recognize or embrace any human creeds, disciplines, catechisms, or religious traditions (Matthew 15:7-9). Instead, we embrace Christ’s plea for unity in John 17:20-21. To this end, we preach the one Lord, one faith, and one baptism (Ephesians 4:5), the basis for spiritual unity.
We believe that all religious authority belongs to Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18). Therefore, Christ has the last word in matters of religion. We believe that this authority extends to all of the Lord’s commandments. We also believe in the essentials of faith (Hebrews 11:6), repentance (Acts 17:30), confession (Matthew 10:32-33), and baptism (Mark 16:15-16; Acts 2:38), as a faith response to the Gospel. These responses to the New Testament pattern demonstrate one’s willingness to become a New Testament Christian. When a believing candidate is baptized, Christ adds them to His Church (Galatians 3:26-27).
Worship in the Church of Christ consists of 5 spiritual areas:
Preaching/Teaching (I Cor. 14:34, I Timothy 2:12);
Prayer (I Thess. 5:17; Ephesians 6:18);
Acapella Singing (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16);
Communion, (the Lord’s Supper) (Acts 20:7, Matthew 26: 26-29);
Giving of our means (I Corinthians 16:1-2, I Corinthians 9: 6-7).
