WE SEEK to help answer the prayer of Jesus in John 17:20-21..."That they all may be one."
We are not motivated by a desire to protest or reform. Therefore we say we are neither Protestants or Catholics. We are merely Christians who seek to follow the teachings of Christ in His Word. We believe that it is not a relationship to the system but rather a relationship to the Saviour that is important. We seek to obey His Word and not the creeds, traditions or innovations of men regardless of how fine or well-intentioned they may be.
The New Testament is as authoritative, valid and binding today as when it was written. Neither human nature nor man’s spiritual needs have changed. The principles of the New Testament are as applicable to present-day man as it the first century man. Man’s obligation to god is the same today as it was at the beginning of the Christian age. Our determination to know the exact truth of His will should be the same; therefore we should reject all creeds, doctrines and religious ideas that are human in origin and accept only the teachings of Christ as we learn them from the inspired New Testament. When we do this we will indeed be “Christians and Christians only.”
