Why we must stand FIRM!!!

I just finished reading an article claiming “there hasn’t been a Restoration Movement for well over 100 years” and the movement was “doomed to fail, as it is based on a faulty ideal” – coming out in the June 13th edition of a periodical sent weekly to many Churches of Christ and Christian Churches.

Saved by “Faith Only”?

Just raise your hand? Only believe? Only trust Him? Say the “sinner’s prayer”? Is it possible for a person to be saved by “faith only”? One verse should be enough to answer this question, but I am a preacher and tend to have longer answers! Here is the one verse: James 2:24. Go ahead—look it …

Each month, the churches of Christ and Christian churches gather together in one of our church buildings for fellowship, encouragement, and exhortation.
