What good is a church that rejects the authority of scripture and neglects the practice of love?

Why go to church to spur others to do good works when those who do are treated with treachery?

If you are tired of talking about the Gospel and are hungry to participate in the Gospel. (Philippians 1:5) If you are tired of sitting on the premises and not standing on the promises, read on....


Because the Restoration Movement lacks any centralized structure, having originated in a variety of places with different leaders, there is no consistent nomenclature for the movement as a whole. The term "Restoration Movement" became popular during the 19th century; this appears to be the influence of Alexander Campbell's essays on "A Restoration of the Ancient Order of Things" in the Christian Baptist. The term "Stone-Campbell Movement" emerged towards the end of the 19th century as a way to avoid the difficulties associated with some of the other names that have been used and to maintain a sense of the collective history of the movement.

The Restoration Movement has been characterized by several key principles:

Thus, the church "should stress only what all Christians hold in common and should suppress all divisive doctrines and practices".

Several slogans have been used in the Restoration Movement, which are intended to express some of the distinctive themes of the movement:


Baptism is administered only to those who have consciously repented, turned away from sin, accept the work of The Holy Spirit into their lives, believe that Christ has died for their sins and who request it for themselves (believer's baptism) and make a public confession of faith. Infant baptism is specifically denounced. (See public article on Salvation)


Lawfulness is taught in every book of the New Testament. And what is the law? Galatians 5:13-15 gives a full and concise example:

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
--Galatians 5:13-15 NIV

We meet together to partake in The Lord's Supper and to study the practical application of The Law of Liberty:

A Call to Persevere in Faith
23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
--Hebrews 10:23-25


All disputes should be settled privately with scripture. If one man can't correct a Biblical error then he is to bring two or three witnesses with him to correct the error. If there is still error then it is to be told to The Church. If the error continues then the errant is to be treated as a pagan. However, this only applies to members of The Church. We are in the world but not of the world. (See Matthew 18:15-20)

In this way there are no public arguments, grandstanding, confusion for seekers and we can maintain our Christian Unity.

Humility is about WHAT is right, not WHO is right.

Breaking of Bread (Communion)

Only those who have been baptized into the Body of Christ are members of the Body, thus only they can take part in the communion of the Body of Christ. Participation in Communion is an observance and remembrance of Christ's body and blood; it is Christ's body and blood because He said it is.

1 Corinthians 11:23-33

Correcting an Abuse of the Lord’s Supper
23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. 27 So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. 29 For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. 30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep. 31 But if we were more discerning with regard to ourselves, we would not come under such judgment. 32 Nevertheless, when we are judged in this way by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be finally condemned with the world. 33 So then, my brothers and sisters, when you gather to eat, you should all eat together.

Again: "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” ... He took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

If you deny The Lord's Supper is what scripture says it is, do you also deny Our Lord came in the flesh?

4 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
1 John 4:1-3

No where in scripture is this described as a metaphor. If I am incorrect, please correct me. Humility is about WHAT is right, not WHO is right.

Pastors in the Church

All elders, decons, evangelists and leaders in the church must be men of good repute, as described in Scripture. Some of the responsibilities they must faithfully carry out are teaching, public reading of Scripture, disciplining, mediating disputes, leading in prayer, and communion. They are to be supported by the church, but must also be disciplined if they sin.

The Sword (Christian pacifism) – nonresistance

Violence must not be used in any circumstance. The way of nonviolence is patterned after the example of Christ who never exhibited violence in the face of persecution or as a punishment for sin. A Christian must love their enemies and pray for those who persecute them, as Jesus did. We should ideate Matthew 5. The weapons of a Christian are spiritual.

The Oath

No oaths should be taken because Jesus prohibited the taking of oaths and swearing, teaching rather complete honesty. Testifying or affirming is not the same thing as swearing. When a person bears testimony, they are testifying about the truth and the present, whether it be good or evil.
