► Does your Church believe in Hell?


Yes we do. Christ Himself taught that there would be a place of punishment for unrepentant sinners in Lu. 16:19-26; here Jesus taught that it was a place of continuous torment and fire and that no one could leave once they have arrived. Jesus also warned all in Mt. 5:29,30 that we should avoid being condemned to Hell at any cost. In Mk. 9:43,44, Jesus tells us that in Hell, "the fire shall never be quenched" and of those sent to Hell, "their worm never dies." It is a place on unending torment.

In Revelation 20:10 Hell is referred to as "the lake of fire and brimstone" and we are told that the devil and false prophets will be "tormented day and night forever." Also in Revelation 20:15 we are told that, "And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire."

Yes the Bible and the Son of God make it clear that there will be eternal punishment for those who have not repented of their sins and turned to Christ. And that is what we too, teach.

► What must one do in order to be saved?


What must one do in order to be saved?

The New Testament gives us a clear pattern of how one comes to salvation in Christ Jesus. One must first hear the Gospel, Rom. 10:17, "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." One must then believe that Jesus is the Son of God and died for your sins, Jn. 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." It is also necessary to repent (turn away) of your sins, Acts 17:30, "Truly these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent." We are also told to confess Jesus publicly as the "risen Lord", Rom. 10:9, "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Then one is baptized by immersion for "the remission (forgiveness) of sins" and so that they might receive the Holy Spirit, Acts 2:38, "Then Peter said to them, "Repent and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

► Who was the founder of the Churches of Christ?


The Church of Christ was founded by Christ Jesus Himself. In Mt. 16:13-19 Jesus revealed to His followers that He would found His Church. This Church was founded on the truth that He is the Christ (Savior) and the Son of the living God.

This Church was begun on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2: 14-41. On that day 3,000 souls received Christ in baptism for the remission (forgiveness) of sins and to receive the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38)

The distinctive marks of the Church of Christ include following the doctrines and practices of the Church described in the New Testament. The written word of God, the Bible is our only guide. We do not have creeds, books of practice or doctrine, or social principles or positions. We stand only on God's word. We also practice baptism as practiced in the conversion of the saints in the New Testament. We partake of the Lord's Supper each Sunday as described in Acts 20:7. We hold all sins declared by God to be sins regardless of popular social opinion. We believe that upon death each person's soul will be saved in heaven or lost eternally in hell as Jesus taught. For this reason we strive to practice the Lord's Great Commission found in Mt. 28:18-20, so that men might choose Christ and be saved!

► What denomination does TCC belong to?


What denomination does TCC belong to?

Triad Church of Christ is a non-denominational independent Christian church. We are representative of churches that are a part of the Restoration Movement which advocated a return to the New Testament Scriptures as our only source of doctrine, practice and authority. We have no higher earthly government than a body of Elders, who serve as our spiritual shepherds and decision makers. Our guide in all matters is the New Testament Scriptures and while we do not believe we are the only Christians, we believe we are Christians only.

Church Practices  

► What is the government structure of your Church?


It was the practice of every Church in the New Testament to have a plurality of Elders ( bishops) in place to govern the affairs and serve as the spiritual leaders of that Church. The Apostle Paul gives instructions concerning these men in 1 Tim. 3:1-7 and in Titus 1:5-11.

► Why does TCC observe the Lord's Supper every Sunday?


Why does TCC observe the Lord's Supper each Sunday?

It appears in the New Testament that the first Christians observed the Lord's Supper each Lord's Day (Sunday or the first day of the week).
