Lower Bucks Church of Christ

Lower Bucks Church of Christ

Our Organization

The Lower Bucks Church of Christ is a non-denominational autonomous congregation. We have no central headquarters, president, or any one man that is at its head. The head of the church is none other than Jesus Christ himself (Ephesians 1:22-23). Lower Bucks is fully organized with a plurality of elders or presbyters who serve as the governing body. These men are selected by the congregation on the basis of qualifications set down in the scriptures (1 Timothy 3:1-8). Serving under the elders are deacons, teachers, and evangelists or ministers. The latter do not have the authority equal to or superior to the elders. The elders are shepherds or overseers who serve under the headship of Christ according to the New Testament. There is no earthly authority superior to the elders of the local church. A common faith in the Bible and adherence to its teachings are the chief ties which bind congregations of the church of Christ together all over the world. Congregations do cooperate voluntarily in supporting the orphans and the aged, in preaching the gospel in new fields, and in other similar works. There are no conventions, annual meetings, or official publications. The "tie that binds" is a common loyalty to the principles of the restoration of New Testament Christianity.
