Thanks for the link by the way.I do think that I used the wrong label. Thanks for bringing that up.
What I should have said was the Campbellites

Thanks again, I sincerely appreciate it.
This folder was empty so I thought I'd put something in it. What is the Church of Christ and what do they believe that is sinful?
Wow! Thanks for that testimony.My experience from 41-1/2 years ago was that they would not pray with me because I had not been baptized "in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins." Acts 2:38.
Beyond that, they were generally pleasant people to hang out with.
I then tried going to a college which was affiliated with the church of Christ.
They essentially sent me packing because I had been attending Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, with Chuck Smith.
Apparently the college people don't believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are in action today (well, in 1979-81).
It was an interesting experience. I pretty much just walked away from them and continued my affiliation with Calvary chapel.
After all, I'd been miraculously healed from a gunshot wound to my throat and the doctor who had done the surgery, and follow up had testified to it, adding that he was not a believer in God.
I found it quite hard to take them seriously after that.
I suppose that is all I can think about this issue.
You're welcome.Wow! Thanks for that testimony.
What do you say to the verses the churchnof Christ typically use to say otherwise?There is no command to be water baptized until saved by faith in Jesus as Lord!
Jailer asked paul what MUST I do to be saved, no water baptism mentioned in reply!What do you say to the verses the churchnof Christ typically use to say otherwise?
Acts 2:38; 22:16; Matt. 28:18; Mark 16:16; Romans 6:3-18; 1 Peter 3:21; Gal. 3:26-27; etc.
I appreciate your time.
30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. 32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. 33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.Jailer asked paul what MUST I do to be saved, no water baptism mentioned in reply!
