Who Are We?

We are a group of Christians who seek to follow the Bible and only the Bible in matters of faith and doctrine.  We are one of the groups which came out of the Restoration movement in the early 19th century.  Essentially, the Restoration Movement sought to unify Christian denominations through the plea to abandon man-made creeds and traditions.  Instead, we “speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent.” We are not perfect, but this is our goal.

Though there are many Churches of Christ, each congregation is autonomous.  In other words, there is no central headquarters of the church that makes decisions for us (think, what the Vatican is a Catholic church).  We are governed by a plurality of qualified men titled Elders. In addition to Elders, we also have Deacons (in our case we have only one) who are official “servants” of the church.  The reason for this is found in 1 Timothy 3.

As far as how we worship, we strive to follow the pattern of the New Testament church which appear to be precedent for us to follow.  Therefore, we partake of the Lord’s Supper each and every Sunday, we pray, we listen to encouraging lessons from the word of God, and we sing.  The major difference between how we worship and how other churches worship is that we sing without instruments.  This is because there is no allowance in the New Testament to sing with instruments and we know that historically, the church did not use instruments for 500 years.  The inclusion of instruments in worship were opposed by a majority of denominational church leaders up until a few hundred years ago.  Unlike other churches who make use of choirs and bands, everyone in our congregation sings together.

The church of Christ is a family, first and foremost.  We are ethnically diverse.  Some of our members come from different parts of the globe, but because of our shared faith in Christ, we regard one another as brothers and sisters.  “In matters of doctrine, unity; in matters of opinion, liberty; and in all things, love.”
