What We Believe

The Church of Christ does not claim to be a denomination.

We are not governed by a central headquarters or any other centralized organization.

The church is autonomous (self-governing) under the authority of only one head which is Christ. We have no creed or declaration of faith besides the Bible, God’s inspired written word. The Bible is our guide for all that we teach and practice (2 Tim 3:16-17).

We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and Lord and we must obey him.

We learn of His will for our lives through the Bible, God’s inspired, written word. We are saved by grace through obedient faith (Ephesians 2:8, 1st Peter 4:17), and that salvation is available to us because of the shed blood of our Savior Jesus Christ.

One becomes a Christian:

 by believing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Acts 2:37; 8:12; 8:37)
repenting (Acts 2:38; 11:18), confessing faith in Christ (Acts 2:38; 8:37; Matt. 10:32 ), and being baptized into Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38,41; 8:12; 16:33; 22:16). Through this experience of being "born again”, God adds us to His church (Acts 2:47). It begins the life-long journey of ”walking in the light” of fellowship with Christ and our brothers and sisters in Christ (1 John 1:7).
