Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God!
Jesus is the head of the church...
In Matthew 16:15-18, Jesus said that He would build His church on the foundation that He is the Christ, the Son of the living God.

The church that Jesus built
We strive to be Christians only....followers of Jesus & God's word:

Following is a brief introduction to the churches of Christ...

When did Jesus start His church?

Acts 2:41-42, 47 (approximately A.D. 30) says:

"Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.  42And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers....47And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved." Acts 2:41-42, 47 (NKJ)

This was the beginning of the Lord's church that He promised  to build.

Can we be "just Christians" and part of Jesus' church today?

You can be just a Christian!  Does this sound strange? With about 300 religious groups in the U.S. and thousands world-wide, it might appear impossible to be a Christian without being part of a denomination.

It is not only possible, but there are actually millions of “Christians only” in the U.S. and other nations.

Why the name "churches of Christ?"

Who are these people who seek to be Christians only?  The congregations (or group of people) of which they are a part are usually known as “churches of Christ.” This term is intended to denote our desire to belong to Christ’s church.

In Romans 16:16, Paul says: “All the churches of Christ greet you.”

In addition to "churches of Christ," the Bible describes Jesus’ church by other names, such as the “body of Christ” (I Corinthians 12:27), the “household of faith” (Galatians 6:10), “the church of God" (I Corinthians 1:2), etc. These and similar Biblical phrases are not proper names, but descriptive expressions which show how the church is related to Christ and His Father. 

Why wear only the name "Christian?"

Individually, Christ’s followers were known in Bible times as “Christians” or “disciples” or "saints." For example, in Acts 11:26, it says:

“The disciples were called Christians first in in Antioch.”

"...but if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not feel ashamed, but in that name let him glorify God." 1 Peter 4:16 (NAS)

Never in scripture does a human name prefix this God-given name of Christian. Paul was one of Jesus’ apostles and wrote many of the New Testament books. Yet Paul did not want disciples to be called “Paulists” or “Paulite Christians.” (See I Corinthians 1:10-17, 3:3-8)

A distinctive plea?

Churches of Christ strive to have a distinctive plea. We firmly believe both in the inspiration of the entire Bible and in its sufficiency to guide us in all matters of faith. (See 2 Timothy 3:16-17). The Bible tells us of the death of Jesus Christ and His atonement (payment) for our sins by His shed blood. It tells us that all men will be rewarded or punished in another life for the way they have lived here (2 Corinthians 5:10). We insist that the moral principles of Jesus are absolute truths to be followed and proclaimed in the personal righteousness of the Christian. We not only believe that the Bible is inspired, but also that it is our ONLY guide in religious faith.

God’s word frequently warns us against changing the divine message (see Galatians 1:6-10).  We, therefore have no man-made creed or catechism to present, but accept Christ as our only creed and the Bible as our only guidebook. We plead for the restoration of New Testament Christianity, rather than a reformation of existing religious bodies.

While many things have changed in the twenty-first century, the teachings of Jesus and His apostles have not. God’s word is truth (John 17:17) and can save today as surely as it did in the first century.

Jesus said in John 8:31-32 to those who believed in Him: "If you abide in My word, you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (NAS)
