Churches of Christ

General Information

Churches of Christ number about 13,000 independent and autonomous congregations in the United States, with about 1.5 million members. These congregations operate without interlinking organization or headquarters; they are united by the direct adherence of each to the Bible alone as the sufficient rule of faith and practice.

The group operates colleges and universities, orphanages, and schools of preaching, and has missionaries in international fields. Publications play a strong role in the life of the church. Faith in the verbal inspiration of the Bible, the divinity of Jesus, the necessity of compliance with biblical teachings, and a firm hope of everlasting life is characteristic of the group. The Churches of Christ believe that Jesus established his church and made it available to all the saved, and that it is the responsibility of all individuals to seek it out and be added to it.
