What is the Church of Christ?

The Churches of Christ are part of what is known as the Restoration Movement. The goal of this movement is to break away from denominational creeds and traditions and to restore the worship, practices, organization, and government of the early church established by Jesus’ disciples. We consider ourselves, therefore, to be non-denominational and believe this is God’s desire for all of Christianity (John 17:20-21; Ephesians 4:4-6).

We have no creed other than Christ (John 6:68), and use no book other than the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We consider all penitent believers who have been baptized (immersed) for the forgiveness of sins (John 3:5, Acts 2:38, Romans 6:1-4) to be our brethren (Acts 2:41, 47).

Early mottos of the Restoration Movement still resonate today and express our desire to pursue unity and truth.

“Where the Scriptures speak we speak, where the Scriptures are silent we are silent.”

“Do Bible things in Bible ways; call Bible things by Bible names.”

“In matters of faith, unity; in matters of opinion liberty; in all things, charity.”
