Who are the Bible People?
It may be easier to describe The Bible People by first telling you who we aren’t rather than who we are: we are not perfect; we are not sinless; we are not better than anyone else; we do not know everything about the Bible.
In fact, you may be surprised to discover that The Bible People are just normal folks. We attend school, have jobs, and raise families like most other people in America. We also face trouble, pain, and temptations, and we often fall short when it comes to being righteous. Does that sound familiar? Well, it’s true. No matter what people may think of us, The Bible People are no different from anyone else, except that we genuinely seek to know what God is trying to tell us by reading and obeying His Word.
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?
