Reasons why i am a member of the church of christ
Reasons Why I Am A Member Of The Church Of Christ
The church of Christ is a spiritual entity. It is not a building. It is made up of Christians.
Christians are those who obey the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Here are some reasons why I am a member of the church of Christ.
Christ built one church, His church (Matthew 16:18)
The church of Christ has no earthly head. It has no Pope, no President, no archbishop.
The church of Christ has no headquarters.
The church of Christ has no creed other than what is written in God's word.
The kingdom, (the church of Christ) is not of this world. It is a heavenly kingdom (John 18:36)
Its head, Jesus, resides there at God's right hand (Acts 2:32-33).
I chose to become a member of the church of Christ because...
It strives to be like the church of the Bible in every aspect of its existence. I don't doubt that the church in the New Testament is the ideal for which we should all strive for.
I am a member of the church of Christ because each congregation is independent and free standing under Christ, the head of the church (Ephesians 1:22-23)
Each congregation chooses its own local leadership (elders) who supervise its activities according to Scripture. No one outside of the congregation has any say in its business or conduct.
I am a member of the church of Christ because it teaches men and women that they must obey Christ if they hope to be saved (Hebrews 5;9)
I am a member of the church of Christ because it teaches that we must do the will of the Father in heaven (Matthew 7:21)
I am a member of the church of Christ because it teaches sinners to believe in Jesus the Son of God (John 3:16)
I am a member of the church of Christ because it teaches that by the sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross, saving grace is extended to all who are submissive to Him (Ephesians 2:8-9)
I am a member of the church of Christ because it teaches that sinners are to be born again of water and Spirit (John 3:5) by being baptized into Christ (Galatians 3:26-27)
I will post more reasons as time permits.
May the grace of God be with you,
