We are undenominational and have no central headquarters or president. The head of the church is none other than Jesus Christ himself (Ephesians 1:22-23). Each congregation of the churches of Christ is autonomous, and it is the Word of God that unites us into One Faith (Ephesians 4:3-6). We follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and his holy apostles, and not the teachings of man. We are Christians only!
The Church of Christ focuses on the Holy Scriptures of the Bible. The God we worship is so powerful that when He spoke, the universe came into existence, Psalm 148:3-5. This creator chose to communicate with the human race through the only means that could be preserved — the written word, Psalm 12:6-7; He promised that His word would last forever, Isaiah 40:8. Since it is impossible for Him to lie, Hebrews 6:18, we know that when we read the Bible today, it is the Lord communicating His will for us to us. In fact, anything taught or practiced by man in the field of religion outside of what the Bible teaches is a corrupted teaching, 1 Peter 1:22-23. Since the Bible alone offers all we need to give us eternal life and to live godly lives, 2 Peter 1:3, going beyond its teaching will result in judgment, John 12:48-50.
God's foreknowledge led Him to look forward to the establishment of the church -- even before the earth was created, Ephesians 1:4-10; 3:8-9. God's scheme of redemption is clearly revealed in Revelation 13:8 where He tells of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. See also 1 Peter 1:18-20.
The church is very important because it (the church) was in God's mind as He allowed His Son to die on the cross, Isaiah 53:4. In Acts 20:28, it says that Jesus purchased the church with His own blood.
The Church of Christ finds it's identifying characteristics within the pages of God's Word. No creed, books, manuals, catechisms or set of by-laws should be necessary to identify it. The New Testament alone is its only creed. Nor should earthly headquarters ever exist, for each church described in the New Testament was the highest order designed by the Lord.
Churches of Christ have gathered because the members of the body of Christ follow the Bible Scriptures in worship, the gospel message & the plan of salvation and apply it to their daily lives.
