What We Believe

FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH

This congregation is identified with the great movement for

the Restoration of the New Testament Church.  We are

building according to the pattern given in the New

Testament, with no additions, subtractions, or substitutions.

By wearing a New Testament Name, “Christian”.

By believing in the New Testament Creed, “Christ”.

By obeying a New Testament Baptism, “Immersion”

into Christ, for the forgiveness of sins,

and the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38).

By obeying a New Testament Communion,

the Lord’s Supper, every Lord’s Day (Acts 20:7).

By practicing New Testament Stewardship,

“Tithes and Offerings” (Hebrews 7:8).

By living a New Testament Life,

“Abiding faithful in His teachings and commands”.

Our Plan…The restoration of the New Testament Church

Our Purpose…”That the world may believe,” in answer to Christ’s prayer

Our Motto…Christ, the only Head of His Church and the only Lord of our lives.

We say not that we are “the only Christians, but that we are Christians only”.

We speak where the Bible speaks and are silent where the Bible is silent.

You are welcome to attend and use your Bible to examine all teachings and practices.

No pressure is ever exerted upon anyone attending our services.

Decisions must always come about by an individual’s own sincere belief and conviction.

In Essentials…UNITY

In Non-Essentials…LIBERTY

In ALL things…LOVE
