The Object of our existence is:
To RESTORE New Testament Christianity, and the
consequent union of all followers of Christ in one body.
To EXALT Christ above party and His Word above
To BUILD a church of Christ without denominational
name, man-written creed or other barriers to Christian
unity, whose terms of fellowship shall be as broad
as the conditions of salvation and identical with them.
To LEAD sinners to Christ in the clear light of the New
Thus we teach and plead for:
The BIBLE as the only rule of faith and practice.
(II Timothy 3:16,17)
(John 17:20,21; I Corinthians 1;10)
(Mark 16:15,16; Acts 2:38,41; 16:32-34)
(Mark 1:5-10; John 3:23; Acts 8:38)
depended on us, trusting as if all depends on
us, trusting as if all depends on Christ.

The Bible as the complete, infallible, and inspired Word of God (II Timothy 3:16)
God, our loving just Father, is the supreme Ruler of all the Universe for all eternity (Genesis 1:1)
Jesus is the Christ (Matthew 16:16)
The Incarnate Son of God (John 1:14)
Born of a virgin (Matthew 1:25)
Lived a sinless life (Hebrews 4:15).
Died on the cross and received God's punishment for the sins of mankind (I Peter 2:24)
Was buried and rose from the dead on the third day both physically and spiritually (I Corinthians 15:3-4)
Is now in Heaven with His Father, but will return to gather the Church into eternal life in Heaven (John 14:2-3) and send the wicked to eternal punishment in Hell (Matthew 25:46)
God's plan for our salvation is to:
Believe that Jesus Christ is God's Son (Mark 16:16)
Repent (turn away from) your sins (Acts 2:38)
Confess Christ's Name (Romans 10:9-10)
Be Baptized into Christ by immersion (Acts 2:38)
Be Faithful to Him throughout your life (Revelation 2:10)
The Holy Spirit will regenerate any person who obeys this plan of salvation (John 3:5) and will indwell in that person (John 14:16). Since we believe in the complete truth of these key doctrines, we are uncompromising on them as being God's revealed truth to His people (Galatians 1:8).

Although Jesus desired unity in the Church (John 17:20-21), over years several hundred denominations have been created as the result of social, theological, traditional and personal differences. This is, of course, most unfortunate. However, during the 19th century, several men decided to put aside all denominational creeds, names, and differences, to unite upon the basis of the New Testament.
This movement became known as the Restoration Movement because it represents an attempt to restore the first century Church in all essential matters as revealed in the New Testament. The Christian Church/Church of Christ is a part of this movement. Our plea is for "all Christians to unite on the basis of the New Testament, to restore the New Testament Church, and to take the Gospel into all the World."
The Restoration Movement has some noteworthy statements that describe our goal:
"Where the Bible speaks, we speak; where the Bible is silent, we are silent."
"In essentials, unity; in opinions, liberty; in all things, love"
"No book but the Bible, no creed but Christ, no name but Christian."
It is our belief that the New testament is our only rule of faith and that man does not have the right to make creeds that overrule God's Word.
It should be noted that no one "Joins" the Church, but when you become a Christian, God adds you to the Church (Acts 2:47). Christians throughout the world belong to Christ's one Church.
