Who Are These People?
Hey there! We’ve noticed that folks who have lived in Clinton for years don’t know much about the church of Christ. Well, we want to change that, and it’s one reason we’ve been sending out the House to House / Heart to Heart paper to our community.
So, what is the church of Christ all about?
In a nutshell, members of the church of Christ just want to follow the teachings of the Bible—nothing more, nothing less. This is the fundamental difference between us and our religious neighbors. Many religious groups submit to creeds, confessions of faith, mission statements, or decrees from human leaders.
But we don’t. We just have the Bible.
After all, we first learn about God, sin, heaven, hell, and other religious topics from the Bible, so why would a person need anything more? Why not go straight to the source and stick with it?
Call us crazy, but we believe that only the Bible will make Christians as God intended. We also believe that the religious unity that Jesus wants (John 17:20-26) can only be achieved by following the Bible and the Bible alone. Isn’t this the safest and most reasonable approach to take? (Check out Gal. 1:6-9 and Rev. 22:18,19.) If God’s desire for unity was fulfilled on Earth today, there would not be a multitude of churches in our community. Rather, there would just be one, and it would just consist of Christians using the Bible as their only guide!
And that’s all we want to be. Just plain and simple Christians—-in word, in deed, and in worship—-like the first-century Christians we read about in the New Testament.
If there is any way we may assist or serve you, please contact us or visit during an assembly. We hope to meet you soon!
