The Purpose of our Website

The purpose of this Website is to provide information regarding Christianity, the Bible, and the Churches of Christ. It is the express purpose of this section of our site to promote faith in Christ Jesus and supply basic study materials to help you conduct your own investigation of God's word. With a quick search on the internet you will find that there are many "church of Christ" websites, as well as many local congregation home pages which will fill other purposes and needs. This website is privately owned and operated, not officially or financially sanctioned by or associated with any particular congregation of the churches of Christ. We do not claim to be an official representative of the Churches of Christ, although our directors are currently active members and/or leaders in their home congregations. It is not within the purpose or scope of this page to indicate the personal opinions of those administering it, however we will feel free to restrict from this site things we find to be in obvious conflict with the scriptures or good Christian character.

Sermons, Studies, Books and Notes:

On this site you will find sermons, studies and books on various topics. They are available online for you to read and study. Our motive is simply to encourage and assist you in your own investigation of God's word. If you would like a copy of any of them, you are welcome to either print the article, or copy it to your word processor. All sermons & studies are free to anyone who wants to study or use them, although we do ask that you not post them on another website or publish them in any way electronically or otherwise without our written consent. Permission will not be granted for you to sell them in any form. Please follow the golden rule in dealing with material from our site. We will not knowingly post any sermon or study without the permission of the author, however there are many content submitters and error is possible. If you find something here that you believe is a violation of copyright law please notify us immediately so we can take the appropriate action. All content on this website is protected under general copyright law.

The Listing of Authors:

Sermons, Studies, Notes and Books will not have any author listed. They have been composed by various members of the churches of Christ including Elders, Deacons, Evangelists and others. All have graciously allowed us to post their material with no credit being given to them, but rather rejoicing that God's word is available for all and people are being encouraged to examine the scriptures for themselves. If you receive benefit from the material here, give the glory to God. If you wish to thank those who have donated their hard work to prepare and post the material here, please feel free to sign the guestbook with your comments.

Questions and Debates:

We welcome any questions you may have about Christianity, the Bible, Jesus, or the Churches of Christ. You can submit them on the Questions page, and we will do our best to provide you with a Biblical, God honoring response. If you find something that you believe is in error, you are also welcome to submit your scripture based explanation of why you believe the article needs corrected. If we find you are correct (and it has happened), we will make the needed changes. We have no "ax to grind", we are only seeking truth. However, this is not an invitation for those who are contentious to assail us with insults or endless bickering. It is not within the scope of our purpose to carry on debates, either publically or via email. There are many religious forums for debate, some specifically associated with the churches of Christ if that is what you are seeking you can easily find them with an internet search. We also will not provide space for "rebuttal" or "counterpoint" articles as this too falls outside our purpose.

Fund Raising:

Cofcnet is not a fund raising organization. We pay for this website ourselves and do not solicit funds for our expenses, nor do we solicit funds for others. Please do not send requests for money as they cannot and will not be honored.

Political Issues:

Cofcnet is not a forum for the publication or debate of secular political issues. Whereas we do believe that christians should be guided in everything they do by the faith and morality found in the scriptures, including which persons and/or parties to vote for, we will not be a party to "stumping" for any political party or candidate on this website. We will not shy away from speaking on issues that the scriptures address, but will allow personal application of those scriptural principles to political candidates to be made by you.
