Romans 16:16 says,“
The churches of Christ greet you.”Are you looking for
the church of Christ?
How can you identify it?by the building?by the steeple?by the large crowd? No . . . .
The sign outside the building will say“Church of Christ” (if there is a building).
The individuals will be called “Christians”.
They will be following and teaching the Bibleonly; there is no “creed” written by men for churches of Christ.
Adults are added to the church of Christ through:
(1) their faith in Christ (Hebrews 11:6),(2) turning away from a life of sin (Luke 13:3),(3) confessing their faith in Christ as the Son of God(Acts 8:37),(4) being buried in the waters of baptism for theforgiveness of sins (Romans 6:1-6; Acts 22:16).
Their worship will consist of:
(1) singing hymns (no accompanying instruments),(2) praying to God in the name of Jesus,(3) studying a lesson from God’s Word,(4) partaking of the Lord’s Supper each first day of the week,(5) contributing of their income for the work of God.
They will be living faithful lives of obedience andservice, following the example of Christ and earlyChristians, as recorded in the New Testament.
