The churches of Christ are undenominational gatherings of Christians whose main purpose is the restoration and propagation of pure, simple New Testament Christianity. We recognize that the church which belongs to the Lord may be called or described by any of its names or descriptions found in the Bible, but most use the term found in Romans 16:16 ("The churches of Christ salute you." NKJV) because it gives glory to the one who purchased the church with His own blood, and looks to the church as His bride (Acts 20:28, Ephesians 5:22-33).

As Christians, we desire the unity of all believers, just as the Lord also desires (John 17:11, 20-23), and the apostles preached (1 Corinthians 1:10). Christian unity is not possible as long as men cling to denominational names, creeds, and practices, and so it is our earnest plea that all who would serve Christ would leave behind the traditions of men and seek to be simply Christians. Further, we believe that God has spoken to mankind; the Bible is God's word to all humanity. The Bible is the infallible, unalterable, complete, and authoritative message to mankind from God, and must be adhered to in order for one to be saved.

Outside of Jesus, all accountable humanity is in sin, and therefore lost and separated from God (Romans 3:23, Isaiah 59:1-2). Anyone who dies while yet in his sins is destined for eternal punishment in hell (Luke 12:5, 2 Peter 2:1-9). This sad fact doesn't have to be, however, because God sent His Son Jesus into the world to die for you and me that we may be saved (John 3:16). Jesus commands that we believe in Him (John 8:24), that we confess this faith before others (Matthew 10:32), that we repent (or turn away) of our sins (Luke 13:2-5), and that any who would be saved must be baptized (Mark 16:16) for the remission (or forgiveness) of sins (Acts 2:38). The baptized believer then must simply live a faithful life before God (Revelation 2:10, Hebrews 10:25) in order to receive the reward of heaven on judgment day (Matthew 25:31-46).

Please read the scriptures given in the parentheses above and ask yourself if you've faithfully come to the Lord for salvation. Ask yourself if you are a member of a church that is seeking only to be a Bible based church, or if rather it is a church based on the traditions of men as stated in creeds, councils, and conventions. If you have concerns, questions, or doubts, or would like a free home Bible study, or correspondence course, please contact us at one of the numbers or addresses provided on this website. May God bless you in your search for the truth (John 8:32).  You invited to contact us for a private discussion and/or to join us for a worship service.

Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.

"Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood."
"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord." "For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body." "Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing." "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;" "That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word," "That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish." So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. "For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:" "For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones." "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh." This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
"And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are."
"Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
"Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:" "But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear."
"But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him."
"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction." And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. "And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not." "For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;" "And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;" "And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;" "And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:" "(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)" "The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:"
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
"I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins."
"Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven."
"And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?" "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." "Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?" "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."
"Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."
"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."
"When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:" "And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:" "And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left." "Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:" "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:" "Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me." "Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?" "When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?" "Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?" "And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:" "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:" "I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not." "Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?" "Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me." And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
