Our mission is simple. We exist to profess the saving message of the gospel (Rom. 1:16) to a lost world. Jesus commanded His disciples to "teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20). The church that was established in the first century carried on that mission (Acts 8:4). This should be the mission of every church of Christ desiring to please the Father.
Jesus promised His disciples "I will build my church" (Matthew 16:18). His church is His body (Ephesians 1:22-23) which bears His name (Romans 16:16). The church of Christ has a divine founder and not a human one. Jesus served as the Foundation (I Corinthians 3:11), Builder (Matthew 16:18) and Purchaser (Acts 20:28) of His body, the church.
We are content with wearing the name given to first century disciples of Christ. We seek to be Christians and Christians alone. We follow no mere man, wearing that name as a means of designation. We are content with wearing the name of Christ as individual Christians (Acts 11:26) and as a church (Eph. 3:14-15). Our goal is to apply the principles outlined in Scripture by living soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world (Titus 2:12).
