We are an autonomous Church, with no denominational ties to any group. However, we are affiliated with other Christian Churches around the world. There are approximately 6,000 churches like ours around the country. These sister-churches have an allegiance to the Bible and to Christ Jesus. There will be differences in policy, tradition and practices – however, for the most part there will be unity in beliefs.
These Christian Churches (some use the name “Church of Christ”) hold to a simple uniting plea of being “Christians only.” We don’t believe that we are “the only Christians – just Christians only.” Our desire is to “restore” God’s church to the way it was in the New Testament era. Hence, we are part of the “Restoration Movement.”
Some unique features of our position include the following: Each of our Churches chooses its own Elders and Deacons (and ministry staff, if necessary) Each of our Churches owns its own building. Each of our Churches determines its own programs.
