Who Are We


 

Pleasant View Church of Christ is a non-denominational New Testament congregation, part of a worldwide movement to restore the essentials of apostolic Christianity. We endeavor to lead lives of faithfulness and devotion guided by Christ as the divine Son of God and the Bible as the inspired record of God’s revelation. Pleasant View Church of Christ has no headquarters or rule from any outside human source. We are locally self-governing and our own Elders lead in spiritual matters.

Being neither fundamentalists nor modernists, we call ourselves Christians. We realize we are not the only Christians but we have no other name.

Our authority is God’s Word. We have no man-made creeds. The Scriptures are our only rule of faith and practice. We allow liberty in opinion in matters where Scriptural revelation does not legislate. And we accept the fullest conformity to the clear and uncontested revelation of the Word.

 

Those who are committed to membership have submitted to the following New Testament  standards.

  • They have believed in and trusted Jesus Christ for salvation. (Jn 14:6)
  • They have acknowledged their commitment to Him (Matt 16:16; Rom 10:9).
  • They have repented of their past sin and rebellion against God and turned to Him. (Lk 13:3; Acts 2:38)
  • They have been immersed in the name of Christ  (Mark 16:16; Rom 6:3-6; Gal 3:27) and have received the remission of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38; Eph 1:13,14).
  • They seek to live a life of Christian steadfastness ( I Cor 15:58).

 

Every first day of the week The Lord’s Supper is served (Acts 20:7).  Our goal is to be in our time, what Christians in the first century were in faith and service. We are simply a body of believers working to restore the vitality of the Christian life.
