What does the COC believe, and how are their beliefs different than the Pentecost, Baptist, Methodist etc.?

They believe that their religion, which was invented by Mr. Lipscomb in 1906, is the ONLY way to heaven. Oh yea, they don't like pianos.

They believe that their church is the original church, that you must be baptized to get to heaven, and that musical instruments in a church is an abomination to the Lord.

Some of the believe that the Holy Spirit stopped working when the last page of the Bible was written.

I wonder why they will allow recorded music in the church? Also why won't they allow the women to have a voice in their services but they will allow them to tithe?

Maybe you should actually go to a Church of Christ and ask to speak to the preacher or one of the elders for answers to your questions. Topix is definitely not the place to try and learn about religion.

go to the bible for the answers, it will not stir you wrong....the Church wasnt built on john the baptist's foundation or a methodist or adventist and so on and so on. you cant put baptist name on Christ's Church...church means assembly not a building. its the assenbly that makes the church....remember Christ died for you not john the baptist or a catholic or any other denomination...with Christ there is no denomination...your just a christian its that simple

I mean .. what does any church believe?
That a book two thousand years ago was written by anonymous authors, who believed the moon gave off light, the earth was flat, and there wasn't any evolution.
All churches believe crazy stuff...

You are obviously not a christian but as a christian I believe in a word called Faith. I will pray to God that one day you will also have Faith in him.

The Church of Christ is non denominational. meaning that each church is independant..Some of the churches have instrumental music, others are against it, some of the churches frown on women if they come to church in pant suits, others don't..The churches are split these ways..Seems the ones I attended pretty much did not get involved in community charities or anything much that did not involve their particular church..

They believe that hell is real , eternal punishment and most of the people I know from the church intimately come very close to and sone come right out and say that their church is the true church.

Here, this is something I found about how they got started
According to Mead's Handbook of Denominations (11th Ed.) on page 103, the Christian Church had its beginnings in the early 1800's:

"Thomas Campbell (1763-1854) was a Scottish Presbyterian who left his church in Ireland to come to western Pennsylvania in 1807. Campbell was convinced that the historical creeds and confessions of the church were a source of Christian division rather than union.......his view led to a censure from the Presbyterians in 1809...."

Mead's continues on p104,

"Campbell's son, Alexander (1788-1866), was less scholarly than his father, but more dynamic and consistent in his application for his father's principles. He convinced Thomas (his father) that infant baptism was not Christian, and in 1812 all of the Campbells were immersed by a local Baptist minister. However, even the Baptists were not Biblical enough for the Campbells...."

So the Campbells left the Baptists and later joined with Barton Stone and Walter Scott and formed what they called the 'Restoration Movement', ie, they were 'restoring' the Church back to its original pattern, since...in their estimation...every body else was wrong. Mead's lists the founding date of the Christian Church, also called "Disciples of Christ", as 1832. Based upon the premise of 'having no creed but the Bible', the Christian Church became 'one of the first independent denominations to be born in the United States.'(Mead, p104)

In the year 1906 some broke away over the issue of musical instruments in worship services and called themselves 'CHURCHES OF CHRIST'. Churches of Christ believed musical instruments should not be used in Worship services, but the Christian Church believes musical instruments in worship services are indeed Biblical. In 1968, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) organized nationally and had its headquarters based in Dallas, Texas.

As far as I know, this is the only christian denomination that does not celebrate Dec 25th as Christ birthday. Also they shun any navity scene or display. Also, I think it is quite strange that they will not visit or go to any other church.

Stereotypes are the only thing you guys know of the COC. They don't think they are better than anyone else. You can find people in any church who think they are high and mighty...no one is perfect. You guys are silly to think you know everything there is to know about the Church of Christ. They basically play it better safe then sorry so it seems like a smart choice to me. Gambling on whether or not I earn a spot in heaven is not something I want to cut corners on, but that is just me. I respect what everyone else believes in, why can't everyone else respect what we think? We aren't the judge and neither are any of you.

Its simply amazing that in the year 2010 we still have people who believe that jonah lived in a big fish's stomach for three days... that a man walked on water.. and god spoke to people like the world had surround sound.

If you REALLY sit there and think about church and religion, its seriously crazy.

You don't believe in santa claus... because a man who rides in a sleigh of reindeer is impossible to be real.

Yet you all believe that a immortal spirit, who has not creator, created the earth. That two people, adam and eve, populated the whole world. There would definitely have to inbreed, which would make everyone retarded.

I have never heard anyone tell me in my church that i cant go visit others. I visit other churches often to strengthen my relationship and influence on my friends. I am happy they go to church i dont judge what they believe. You clearly have no idea what you are talking about. The only people that should be posting about the Church of Christ are people that attend a Church of Christ, so we actually get some true answers and not stereotypes or what youve heard from a friend who heard that from a friend.

You are a Christian? What do you feel will be the fate of the Jewish people? One other question, do you know for certain that there is a God?
