About Our Church

The churches of Christ are undenominational and have no central headquarters or president. The only head of the church is Jesus Christ himself (Ephesians 1:22-23).

Each congregation of the churches of Christ is autonomous, and it is the Word of God that unites us into One Faith (Ephesians 4:3-6). We strive to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and His apostles, and not the teachings of man. Men who meet the qualifications set forth in Scripture (especially 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9) are appointed as elders (also known as pastors or bishops) to lead the local congregation. Other men whose qualifications are found in 1 Timothy 3:8-12 are appointed as deacons to oversee various ministries and programs of the congregation. Many congregations also have an evangelist who does most of the preaching.
