One church with Christ as our head
A local group
As individuals, we share a fellowship with Christians all over the world. When we were saved, the Lord added us to His church (Acts 2:47). The Head of the church is Christ and its headquarters is in heaven (Ephesians 1:20-23).
With local leadership
As a local church we are self-governing; that is, we do not answer to or follow the direction of any man or council of men outside of the congregation. We adhere to no human creed. We are free to study, teach and work as the Bible leads us. The Scriptures alone tell us what is good for us to do (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
A common goal
Since the scriptures are our only guide in religious matters, it is our desire to do everything the scriptures teach and nothing else.
