Why The Church Of Christ?
With so many churches to choose from, why attend a church of Christ?
Ever notice how various faiths and religious denominations have so many contradictory rules and beliefs? This comes from men pursuing their own ideas and feelings about God, worship, and the church rather than just following what the Bible teaches. For instance, the catholic faith forbids priests to marry and practices lent. But did you know both of these things are condemned in the Bible (1 Timothy 4:1-5)?
Other popular faiths today view Jesus as "just a prophet" (Islam), deny the resurrection of Jesus (Jehovah Witness), reject baptism as necessary for salvation (Baptist), proclaim new revelations (Mormon), or reject God outright (Buddhism). All of these religions and denominations are false doctrines. They will not lead to salvation, only to damnation (John 14:6, 2 Peter 2:1, Jeremiah 14:14, Jeremiah 23:16, 2 Timothy 4:3, 2 Cor 11:13-15). Even for those who accept Christ, the Lord despises worship when done incorrectly (Isaiah 29:13, Amos 5:21-23, Isaiah 1:15, Proverbs 28:9)
The Church of Christ uses the Bible, specifically the New Testament, as the standard for how we ought to live, what we ought to believe, and how we ought to worship (2 Tim 3:16-17). At Kenwood Church of Christ, you'll find people who follow God's word, not the man-made beliefs that you'll find elsewhere. Come and see for yourselves.
