VIDEO: INTRODUCING THE CHURCH OF CHRIST – RONNY WADE
In this video, Bro. Ronny Wade discusses four Bible epithets of the New Testament church. Since its founding the first century, thousands of “christian” sects have sprung up throughout the world. Yet Christ’s original church still exists today and can be identified by its simple plan of salvation, its Scriptural form of worship and adherence to the apostolic doctrine and the heavenly code of ethics. (This sermon is from the Let the Bible Speak TV program which was likely recorded in 1963 and aired on KY3 television in Springfield, MO.)
