“For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through
endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” – Romans 15:4
The Kent County church of Christ believes in following God’s plan as laid out in the Bible, as we strive to imitate the first century church.
We see the Bible as the inerrant, inspired word of God, and use it as our guide for life.
Members of the church of Christ conduct forty colleges and secondary schools, as well as seventy-five orphanages and homes for the aged. There are approximately 40 magazines and other periodicals published by individual members of the church. A nationwide radio and television program, known as “The Herald of Truth” is sponsored by the Highland Avenue church in Abilene, Texas. Much of its annual budget of $1,200,000 is contributed on a free-will basis by other churches of Christ. The radio program is currently heard on more than 800 radio stations, while the television program is now appearing on more than 150 stations. Another extensive radio effort known as “World Radio” owns a network of 28 stations in Brazil alone, and is operating effectively in the United States and a number of other foreign countries, and is being produced in 14 languages. An extensive advertising program in leading national magazines began in November 1955.
