We are a group of just Christians who assemble regularly to worship and serve God. Our goal is to be a church of Christ just like the churches of Christ you read about in the Bible such as the church at Antioch, the church at Ephesus, etc. See Romans 16:16 – “The churches of Christ salute you.”
We accept the Bible and the Bible alone as the only rule of faith and practice. Therefore, we have no man-made creed, discipline, book of church order, etc. It is our understanding that no man or group of men has the authority to legislate for the churches.
In worship we endeavor to follow the instructions of Jesus and His apostles and therefore we reject all changes and innovations to God’s original pattern. On each first day of the week (Sunday) we assemble in order to partake of the Lord’s Supper as instituted by Jesus Himself (Matthew 26:26-28; Acts 20:7). At which time also we have the opportunity to give as we are able (1 Corinthians 16:2). Our Sunday services also include preaching, prayers, and singing. Our song service is always a cappella, that is, without an organ or any other instrumental accompaniment (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16).
We understand that in order to be a Christian, that is to be saved, one must hear the gospel message, believe. repent, confess faith in Jesus Christ and be baptized for the remission of sins. We take this from Jesus’ final instructions to His apostles (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:46-48) and the examples of conversion in the Book of Acts (Acts 2:38; Acts 8:12; Acts 8:35-39; Acts 10:48; Acts 16:14-15; Acts 18:8; Acts 22:16).
There are many individual churches of Christ scattered throughout America and the world but none of us are a part of any denominational network. There is no central headquarters of the churches of Christ. We have no convention, synod, general assembly, church council, etc. While individual congregations may choose to work together on certain projects, there is no central governing body. We choose to follow the New Testament pattern of each congregation being autonomous with Jesus Christ Himself being the only head of the church.
