Since America’s earliest days, Churches of Christ have looked to the Bible as the world’s sole source of divine wisdom, strength, guidance, and connectivity to God. Because of our deep devotion to it, we have long been known in our communities as “The Bible People.” Members of the Churches of Christ truly do believe the Bible is the only authoritative Word of God. Our goal is not only to genuinely know it, but also to allow it to shape us so that we may show Jesus to everyone we meet.
Why the Bible?
The Bible has always played a leading role in the history of our ever-developing world. Long regarded as the Word of God, it has been used to shape humankind’s morals and codes of law for over 1,500 years. Most importantly, it tells us the story of Jesus, revealing both God’s love for humanity and His plan to forgive and save those who will make room for Him in their lives.
We have already identified the term “The Bible People” as an old-time, friendly nickname for members of the Churches of Christ, but we admit it doesn’t go far in telling you who we truly are. Honestly, we are so eager for you to know us that it might be better to begin by first telling you who we are not. You may be surprised at what you learn!
The Churches of Christ have no world or national headquarters, no diocese network, no regional/state/county controllers. They are totally autonomous, and this means that each congregation’s leaders interpret scripture as best as they can and apply them to their church as they see to be fit and proper. However, there are some core values you may expect to be congruent in the majority of the congregations of America’s Churches of Christ.
You may or may not have heard this already, but there is good news for all of us who continually fail to measure up to the righteousness of the Holy God – and that is, literally, all of us. God loves us so much that He gave us a way to be with Him forever through His Son, Jesus! He wants everyone to hear this news and come home to Him in Heaven. Would you like to hear it?
