Members of the church of Christ hold that the Biblical writers were inspired of God. Therefore, we believe that the New Testament (N.T.) is without error and contains the final and complete revelation from God to man (John 16:13; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; Jude 3). The N.T. teaches that the Old Law was “blotted out, taken out of the way, and nailed to the cross” (Colossians 2:14). When the Old Law was abolished, the new and better covenant went into effect (Heb. 8:6-7, 9:15-18). Following the N.T. as the rule of “faith and practice” and the O.T. as an “example or tutor” (Hebrews 8:5; Rom. 15:4; Gal. 3:24); members of the church of Christ purpose to speak where the Bible speaks and to be silent where it is silent.
Congregations, like the one here in Webster, realize that the whole structure of Christianity rests upon the divinity of Christ and His resurrection (I Corinthians 15:14). This means that only Christ has the authority to say what the church is and what Christians should teach. We believe the church today should be the same as that found in the N.T. scriptures. It should be the same in name, organization, worship, law of conversion, and in the principles of Christians living.
