The church of Christ in Katy is a group of undenominational Christians that are striving to serve the Lord together. Our goal is to please God, and we believe that the best way to do that is to follow the pattern that was established by the churches in the first century and revealed in the New Testament.
We have no creed or doctrine except the Bible and we follow the Bible only. We strive for unity in the teaching of New Testament doctrine.
Our congregation is not part of, or subject to, any larger man-made religious organization. We are a completely autonomous congregation. We are locally governed, just as the church in the first century was.
We are led by a plurality of elders. The church has several deacons who assist with various duties. Our elders are the spiritual leaders of our congregation and meet the qualifications required by 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. The deacons in our body meet the qualifications of 1 Timothy 3.
How one becomes a member of the church
On the day of Pentecost following Jesus’ resurrection, people who repented and were baptized were saved (Acts 2:38) and the saved were added to the church (Acts 2:47). These saved people were members of the body, or church (Colossians 1:18).
To become a Christian, one must:
- Hear the gospel (Romans 10:17)
- Believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God (John 8:24, 58)
- Repent of past sins (Luke 13:3, 5)
- Confess Jesus as Lord (Matthew 10:32, Romans 10:9)
- Be baptized for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38)
