The Mission of Christian Church at Rome is to be a loving congregation with a conscience for the community:
We will be followers of Jesus that invite others to join us on the journey.
We believe that there is only One God, the maker of Heaven and Earth, the Great I Am, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Father of Jesus, and the giver of life.
We believe that the Bible, the written Word of God, is for instruction, correction, and leading the world to salvation. We believe that the written Word of God is inspired -- being God-breathed, whole, and true.
We believe that there is only one Savior of mankind, and His name is Jesus of Nazareth -- born of a virgin, crucified under Roman rule, and resurrected by the power of God. We believe He ascended to the right hand of the Father and is returning one day for His Church.
We believe that one comes into a relationship with Jesus that leads to salvation by surrendering one's heart in faith to follow Him in obedience.
We believe that surrender to Jesus the Christ comes about through believing that He is Christ, repenting of our sins, being immersed in the ancient Biblical fashion, receiving the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and living under the discipline of the Word of God and in the fellowship with His body the Church.
We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ of which He is the Head.
We believe that the Church is called to remember Christ around His table; hence, when the Lord's people, on the Lord's day, gather in His house dedicated to worship the Lord, we gather around His table and remember Him. Therefore, we offer the table so that each believer might do as instructed in God's Word and examine oneself and then participate.
We believe that the Church is made up of those who follow Christ as His disciples by surrendering their hearts, minds, soul, and strength to Him.
We believe that the Church has been sent by Christ into the whole world to proclaim the Good News, baptizing and teaching others to observe all things that Christ has commanded.
We believe that we have no conference, convention, or earthly ecclesiastical authority over us—only Christ and His Word. We seek the unity of all believers in Christ upon the essential matters and the freedom of local congregations and individual Christians in matters of opinion. Historically, we follow the thoughts and process of the Restoration movement as an independent congregation which is elder-led and staff-driven.
We have no creed but Christ, no name but the one given in Scripture, no book of doctrine but the Bible, and no rule of faith and practice but the written Word of God.
In faith – unity; in opinions – liberty; in all things – love
