The Bible is our only rule of faith and practice. (2nd Timothy 3:16)

We believe the Bible is inspired, inerrant, authoritative, and relevant to all times and is absolute truth. 

In honor of Jesus Christ our Lord, we call ourselves by the name given in scriptures to all believers: “Christians.” (Acts 11:26)

To remember Jesus’ death on the cross for us, we observe the Lord’s Supper each week on the Lord’s Day after the example of the early Christians. (Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 11:23-32, Acts 2:42)

We uphold the seven essentials for Christian unity among the followers of Christ: “One Body, One Spirit, One hope, One Lord, One faith, One baptism, One God and Father of all.” (Ephesians 4:4-6

We believe that Jesus Christ, the virgin born Son of God is the only way for man to be saved from his sins and have eternal life. (Acts 4:12, John 14:6)

We believe that sinners are saved BY grace, THROUGH faith, completed at the faith act of baptism. (Ephesians 2:8-10, Colossians 2:12, Acts 22:16, 1 Peter 3:21)

We believe that baptism, “In the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins” is an essential part of a penitent sinner’s personal obedience to the gospel of Christ, and is to be practiced by immersion only. (Romans 6:1-5, Acts 2:38)

We believe the benefits of obeying the Gospel of Christ are God’s gifts of:

  • Forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38, Colossians 2:12-13)
  • Eternal life (Romans 6:23
  • Salvation (Mark 16:16)
  • Peace with God (Romans 5:1-2)
  • Added to the church by the Lord (Acts 2:47
  • The Holy Spirit dwelling within our hearts (Acts 2:38, Romans 8:9-11)

We believe the Churches of Christ are independent congregations, with no need of a denominational headship. Each congregation is organized with Elders, Preachers and Deacons to provide leadership and direction for the ministry of each congregation. (Ephesians 4:1-12, Philippians 1:2)

We believe that EVERY Christian should make EVERY effort to lead others to faith in Jesus and be spiritually ready for His return. (2 Corinthians 5:10, Romans 1:16, Hebrews 9:27, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
