a church of Christ
We are simply a group of Christians, members of Christ's body, His church, nothing else.
Jesus said, "Upon this rock I will build My church"" Matthew 16:18. This He did and purchased the church with His own blood (Acts 20:28). After Jesus' resurrection, Peter taught the people in Jerusalem about the salvation offered through Christ's death, "And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved;" Acts 2:47.
We believe the Bible is the voice of God: "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work;" 2 Timothy 3:16-17. We look only to the Bible as our source of authority.
The Bible shows the church's prime directive is to teach the gospel: "The power of God for salvation:" Romans 1:16. Paul characterizes the church as, "The pillar and support of the truth: 1Timothy 3:15.
Our goal is heaven, and our focus is Christ.
He has the words of eternal life (John 6:68). If we will teach his word and people will accept it and follow Him, God promises forgiveness and eternal life: "If what you heard from the begining abides in you, you will also abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life;" 1 John 2:24-25.
