What We Believe

We know that many religious organizations and institutions can be overwhelming and confusing. However, we seek to be as transparent as possible. Listed below are some topics that we are often asked about. We hope that these questions and answers are beneficial to you. If you have questions about our beliefs, we invite you to use our email:

God's Word

We believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant, and perfect Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind. We are determined to follow its teachings to the fullest extent of our ability. We recognize no authority outside the Bible in matters of faith, and we intend to hold to its teaching no matter the cost. We subscribe to no creed, catechism, or statement of faith other than the Bible.

Seeking Truth

in God's Word

Inspiration and Authority

We believe that every word of the Bible is inspired by God; that God’s word is inerrant, infallible and without contradiction in the original manuscripts. The 66 books that comprise the Old and New Testaments have been faithfully preserved throughout history as God’s complete revelation to mankind and are our final authority in faith and life. For that reason, everything we believe, teach, and do must have Biblical authority.

The Church

Jesus came to earth to establish His Kingdom, the church, which He accomplished through the work of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles. Jesus established only one church, His body. God automatically adds those who are saved to the church. Jesus came to seek and save the lost, and this is ultimately accomplished by means of the church. Since there is only one church, denominationalism is contrary to God’s Will. Therefore, the church of Christ should never be referred to as “another denomination.” We believe that God has provided for the local church qualified elders to shepherd her members in doctrine and life and equip every saint for the work of ministry.


If man is to be saved from sin, he can only be saved by God’s grace. But God will not save us against our will. Every accountable human being has chosen sin, and God has now invited every accountable human being to choose salvation. Therefore, the fact that salvation is even an option for us is grace. Grace is the basis of our salvation, obedient faith is the means by which we accept salvation, and baptism is the occasion at which we receive salvation. There is only one baptism applicable today, and it involves immersion in water for the forgiveness of sin and entrance to the kingdom.


We are a nondenominational congregation. This means we have no set creed or doctrine other than the Bible.  We have no headquarters. We consider Jesus Christ the head of the church.  We are led by an eldership selected from among our members, and we have ministers that serve in various capacities.  We believe every member is called to serve others just as our Lord Jesus came to serve.  We believe we must follow the pattern of the early church as recorded in His Word. Paul makes clear the use of a pattern in his writings to Timothy: “What you heard from me, keep as a pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus (2 Tim. 1:13).  Paul further states: "All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good works.” (2 Tim. 3:16-17). The Church, the Body of Christ, the Kingdom of Christ must maintain its identity both in name and in doctrine.  Within this context, the congregation must follow the dictates and examples of the New Testament. In doing so, we glorify God, build relationships with Jesus, teach daily applied Christianity, stand firm against sin, avoid divisive factions, lead the wayward to salvation, teach Christian doctrine, and in all things show love.

Christian Conduct

We believe that a Christian should live for the glory of God and the well-being of others; that his conduct should be blameless before the world; and that he should be a faithful steward of his possessions. We believe it is the duty of every Christian to pursue a life of maximal holiness, purity, and conformity to the Word of God in thought and deed. We affirm the Biblical view of marriage as a lifelong and exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and reject any view that condones sexual conduct outside the covenant of Biblical marriage.

The Godhead

We believe that there ever has been, and ever will be, only one true and living God who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Word (the Son, Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit. These three are equal in every divine perfection, infinite, without beginning or ending, unchanging, and possessing all power, knowledge, and glory. They execute distinct but harmonious roles in the work of creation, providence, and redemption.


The Camden church of Christ is a group of disciples who are striving to practice New Testament Christianity in honor of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We want to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. We seek to honor His will.  We believe the Bible is God's revealed will for us, and it is the roadmap to a proper relationship with Him.  We also desire to love our fellow man.  It is our goal to help all we meet to come into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.  We believe these are the greatest commands. During our time of worship, we strive to focus on the Lord.  We praise Him with our voices, petition Him with our prayers, and listen to messages based on His word.  We also engage in communion and contribution weekly. We would love to have you join us in worship.
