We have a Father who loves us more than anything. However, there is one problem, and it’s a really big one: sin. God cannot tolerate sin, and we humans are brimming full of it. So He decided to make a way for us to be with Him. In the form of Jesus, he gave up everything, came to earth, lived a human life, and laid it down for us by dying a cruel death on the Roman cross. This is love. In fact, the Bible teaches us that there is no greater love than dying for someone else. It’s the world’s greatest and purest gift.
Like any other gift, this one must be accepted to be enjoyed. People today may not know about the Good News of Christ: that because of Jesus’ death on the cross, salvation from our sins and eternal life are available for everyone. That is, they are available for those who will accept them. Will you?
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?
