WHO WE ARE
In the most simple of definitions the church of Christ is a group of disciples who belong to Christ. In the New Testament, where we find the beginning of the church, the church didn’t have a title and the believers were not guided by the principles of a mere man. We believe titles only serve to divide and that creeds of man are unnecessary. We call ourselves the church of Christ as a descriptive name rather than view it as a title. The word ‘church’ comes from the Greek word ‘ekklesia’ and simply means ‘the called out.’ So, we are the called out who belong to Christ.
We are just regular people from almost every walk of life. We come from different economic levels, are of a variety of ages, different racial backgrounds and, in our spiritual lives, we are at different stages of knowledge and spiritual growth. We don’t claim to be mistake free, but we do strive to imitate Jesus as much as possible. If you decide to visit us you will find people who love Jesus, who love the Bible and who love one another.
We speak where the Bible speaks, and we are silent where the Bible is silent. We are undenominational and have no central headquarters or president. The head of the church is none other than Jesus Christ himself (Ephesians 1:22-23).
Each congregation of the churches of Christ is autonomous, and it is the Word of God that unites us into One Faith (Ephesians 4:3-6). We follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and his holy Apostles, and not the teachings of man. We are Christians only!
