Frequently Asked Questions
Reformation vs. Restoration
We do not identify as Protestants coming out of the Reformation (Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans, Presbyterians, etc.) but simply as Christians. Among other central faith tenets are beliefs that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, that the Lord’s Supper should be celebrated every Sunday, and that adult baptism is by immersion, as one part of the New testament’s plan of salvation.
Several mottos summarize the movement such as: “In essentials, unity; in opinions, liberty; in all things, love.” And “Where the Scriptures speak, we speak; where the Scriptures are silent, we are silent.”
Christian Churches and Churches of Christ are autonomous and do not have a council structure but are governed by local elders selected by each individual congregation.
We believe the Bible clearly connects baptism with the plan of salvation. We do not re-baptize people for the purpose of becoming a member of the church who have previously been baptized.
Women's Role in Church
Our goal is simple: To help you take your next step of faith. No matter who you are or where you are in your walk with Jesus, we’ve all got a next step we need to take. We also believe we weren’t meant to do faith alone. We’re in this together.
