About The Lord’s Church
The church of Christ had its beginning in New Testament times. Many Old Testament prophets spoke of its coming (Is. 2; Dan. 2; Joel 2). Jesus promised to build it (Mt. 16:18). Numerous New Testament preachers spoke of it existence (Acts 5:11; 20:28; Eph. 5:21-29; I Tim. 3:15; etc.). The saved of the first century were added to it by the Lord Himself (Acts 2:47). Thus, the church of Christ is an institution almost 2000 years old.
The foundation of the church of Christ is Jesus Christ himself (I Corinthians 3:11). Following the organization of the church found in the New Testament, the churches of Christ are nondenominational, and adhere to the teachings of Jesus found in the Bible. Our belief is based on the truth that “Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16).
Members of the church of Christ are called Christians as found in Acts 11:26 “the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch”. We follow no other law, guide or authority except the inspired teachings of Jesus found in the Bible.
Before Christ ascended back to heaven, He instructed His apostles to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20).
