The purpose of these questions and answers…

is to help people to better understand the church of Christ and why we do the things we do.  Our intent is one of love for the souls of men and women, and to help everyone we can to obtain heaven when this life comes to an end.  Should you, dear reader, have a subject or question you would like to discuss or have answered, please feel free to contact us and we will try to get back with you as soon as possible.

There are some principles of studying the Bible that must first be understood to correctly understand the scriptures.  First we must understand that God inspired men to write His word, that we could know His law and have a better life by following it.  God’s word is to be taken literally, unless context dictates differently.  We must also remember to whom these letters are written to better understand the context.  God’s word teaches us His will by means of direct statements which includes commands (thou shall, or shall not), divine examples (e.g. the church taking the Lord’s Supper, Acts 20:7), and by implication (e.g. Matthew 3:16 where “Jesus went up straightway out of the water”, implying He had to first go down into the water).  The church of Christ does Bible things in Bible ways, speaks where the Bible speaks, and is silent where the Bible is silent.  In so doing these things, we strive to be of the same pattern as the first century church we read of in scripture.
