We are Christians attempting to go back to the simplicity and purity of the first century church. We take the Bible alone, and preach the same message, in the same way that the apostles did in the book of Acts. With the Bible as our guide, and with no human creed to stumble on, we enthusiastically seek to find and imitate what the original church was like. Since the church belongs to Christ, you will find no modern-day organizational bureaucracy, no earthly headquarters. The tie that binds all such congregations around the world together is the Bible. Each congregation, however, is governed by a group of Elders selected from among its members. These men meet specific qualifications given in I Timothy 3 and Titus 1. Their task is to care for the congregation's spiritual needs and keep the focus on God's Word.
