The church of Christ is not Catholic, Protestant, nor Jewish in nature. Neither is it nondenominational in the typical sense of that word. Rather, the church of Christ is undemoninational. We do not seek to be part of the religious world that partitions itself off in man-made division, nor do we wish to simply absorb people from various religions by offering generic doctrine, social programs, and hierarchical leadership. Instead, we seek to abandon all of the barriers to unity that exist by appeals to men and their creeds and appeal only to the Bible for all matters of doctrine and practice, trusting in it as the inspired source of all that pertains to life and godliness (2 Pet. 1:3).
