Who We Are
The Church of Christ in West Carrollton is a Bible believing group. We use only the Bible as our source of authority. We are always seeking to better understand God’s revelation so that we may most accurately live by the Truth God has revealed.
We are a friendly group of people from various backgrounds. We all abundantly appreciate the patience and mercy of God as we realize that – while we seek perfect obedience – we haven’t made it yet.
Why We Do These Things
We recognize that we all exist and continue to exist because God wills. We also recognize that God desires a relationship with all men, but the choices that we sometimes make – to selfishly practice sin – separate us from God.
Were it not for the sacrifice of Jesus, we would have no hope of reuniting with God. Because we appreciate Jesus’ offer and God’s willingness to send His Son, and accept His sacrifice as payment, we want to live in a way that pleases God.
Because Jesus died to pay the price for our sins, we seek to live not as we might desire, but as Jesus would live. We live to praise God and bring glory and honor to Him.
What We Believe
We belive that the Bible is God’s inspired word and is – in itself – sufficient to guide a godly life. We believe that the bible is understandable by all and that each person has the responsibility to study and learn how to exercise their free-will.
We believe that Jesus is God and lived – in the flesh – on this earth. Also, we believe in the atoning death, burial and resurrection before His ascent to heaven.
We believe a life obedient to the commands of God – both of things to do and things to abstain from doing – is essential for salvation. Repentance from past sins, baptism (immersion) to be united in the likeness of Christ’s death for remission of sins and a life of devoted service are all necessary to obediently comply with God’s commands.
