An Introduction To The Church Of Christ There is a difference. You need to know what it is.
The Church of Christ has: One Builder -- Jesus Christ: -- (Matt. 16:18; Eph. 3:9-11).
The Church of Christ has: One Purchaser -- Jesus Christ: -- (Acts 20:28).
The Church of Christ has: One Head -- Jesus Christ: -- (Eph. 1:22,23).
The Church of Christ has: One Savior -- Jesus Christ: -- (Eph. 5:23).
The Church of Christ has: One Destiny -- Eternal Salvation: -- (Eph. 5:23).
The Church of Christ is: The Spiritual Body Of Christ: -- (Eph. 1:22,23; 5:23).
The Church Of Christ is: The Kingdom Of Christ: -- (Matt. 16:18,19; Heb. 12:28).
The Church of Christ is: Made Up Of The Saved: -- (Acts 2:47).
The Church of Christ is: Is One Body, Not Many: -- (Eph. 4:4; 2:22,23).
The Church of Christ is identifiable by its: Worship:-- Consisting Of: -- Singing, Praying, Observing the Lord's Supper Every Lord's Day, Giving As Prospered Every Lord's Day, and Studying The Word Of God: -- (Acts 2:42; 20:7; 1 Cor. 11:17-34; 16:2).
The Church of Christ is identifiable by its: Work: -- Preaching The Gospel To All: -- (Mk. 16:15,16). Edifying (instructing, encouraging, helping) the members in the spiritual application to their lives. Limited benevolence to the saints. (that does not remove our responsibility to be individually benevolent towards others)
The Church of Christ is identifiable by its: Organization: -- Led By A Plurality Of Elders In Each Independent Congregation. Served By Deacons: -- (Acts 14:23; 1 Tim. 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9). Some congregations do not have qualified elders, and the decisions are made by the members of the local church within the guidelines of the Bible.
The Church of Christ is identifiable by its: Entrance Into It: -- By Hearing The Word Of God, Believing It, Repenting Of One's Sins. Confessing One's Faith In Christ, Being Baptized In Water For The Remission Of One's Past Sins: -- (Rom. 10:17; Heb. 11:6; Acts 8:37; 2:38).
Conclusion These are just a few of the identifying marks that helps us learn that the church of Christ is the body that belongs to God. Other groups hold to some of these marks. Some groups add things that do not belong in the worship of God and the work of the church. You now know enough about the church to become a member. Once you obey the gospel, you begin your life long journey towards heaven, growing in faith, grace, knowledge, and spirituality. Will you obey God now?
