What We Believe

CCLC | Christ’s Church of Labette Co. exists for a unique purpose:

We believe we have a responsibility to represent the Church found in the New Testament. After years of denominations establishing their own rules aside from the Bible, a group of preachers from several denominational backgrounds got together around the year 1800 to “restore” the New Testament Church back to its original Biblical blueprint. From those humble and committed believers was launched a fellowship of Christians who:

wanted to wear the name “Christian” only (no other human or denominational names were needed).

believe, practice and preach the Bible only (no other human creeds or man-made doctrines allowed).  

We pay particular attention to how people in the New Testament responded when receiving Jesus as their Lord and Savior. With all the confusion over how to receive Christ in the religious world today, we believe we are safe in God’s Will by going back and following what they did in the New Testament. We would challenge you to read the book of Acts and see what people were told to do when receiving Jesus as their Savior. (Example: Acts 2 : 36-40 says;)

36 Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.”37 Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” 38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.39 For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation.”

Our purpose today is not to be one more religious group trying to win people to our way of thinking, but to represent the Church found in the New Testament and win people only to Jesus!

We do not believe that we are the only Christians, but we do want to be Christians only.
