Catholics and non-catholics alike -
Is the “Statement of Belief” below (California church), reflective of Solo Scriptura Or Sola Scriptura? I believe that it reflects the first…
The Church of Christ of Ontario is made up of people who have been drawn together for worship and service by a common faith in Jesus Christ. We wish simply to be called Christians, and we make it our goal to live up to all that such a glorious name represents.
As individuals, we share a fellowship with Christians all over the world. When we were saved, the Lord added us to His church (Acts 2:47). The Head of the church is Christ; its headquarters is in heaven (Eph. 1:20-23).
As a local church we are self-governing; that is, we do not answer to or follow the direction of any man or council of men outside of the congregation. We adhere to no human creed. We are free to study, teach and work as the Bible leads us. The Scriptures alone tell us what is good for us to do (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
Since the scriptures are our only guide in religious matters, it is our desire to do everything the scriptures teach, and nothing else.
