Who Are We?
We belong to a non-denominational fellowship of believers who identify themselves as the Church of Christ. We are a people who maintain a high regard for scripture and believe that the Bible is our final authority in matters of faith and practice. It is for this reason that our ministry is dedicated to training leaders for the church who are knowledgeable of God's word and who are mature in their faith and ministry. It is our utmost desire to advance a deeper knowledge of God and obedience to Christ in the world -- all the the glory and praise of God. Our ministry is sponsored by the Sycamore View congregation in Memphis, TN and supported by numerous churches and individuals across the United States. This ministry also operates in affiliation with the Sunset International Bible Institute in Lubbock, TX.
Who we are not:
Perhaps it is also helpful to define who we are not since some people tend to confuse us with others that they have heard of before. Being non-denominational is a concept that is not often understood in the present world of denominational Christianity. Here are some of denominations that “we are not”:
- Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons)
- United Church of Christ (Congregational Church, Mainline denomination)
- Church of God (Charismatic/Pentecostal denominations)
- Church of God in Christ (Charismatic/Pentecostal denomination)
- International Church of Christ (churches of the so-called Boston Movement)
- Disciples of Christ (headquarters in Indianapolis, IN)
