THE CHURCH OF WHICH YOU READ IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

Is it possible to be a Christian without being a member of any denomination? Absolutely! The church of which you read in the New Testament was built by Jesus--not by men (Matt. 16:18). It is not a denomination. The church is the body of Christ (Eph. 1:22-23) and there is only "one body" (Eph. 4:4). It has no earthly headquarters, follows no man-made creeds or manuals, and recognizes only God's word as the sole authority in religion (2 Tim. 3:16-17; John 17:17; John 12:48). Faithful congregations of the church of Christ respect Christ's authority in all matters of religion (Col. 3:17). Worship assemblies are conducted in keeping with the New Testament pattern. But, why the strict adherance to the Bible? Simply because love for Christ and a right relationship with Him is seen in obeying His will (1 John 2:3-4; John 14:15; 1 John 5:3). "...The churches of Christ salute you" (Rom. 16:16).

NEITHER TO THE RIGHT NOR THE LEFT

The Lord's church seeks to stay on the solid ground of Bible authority for all matters of religious worship and Christian conduct. We therefore reject the extremes of "liberalism" (loosing where God has bound) or "anti-ism" (binding as Divine law where God has not).
