The Ancient Faith
The Church of ChristThe church of Christ originally established on Pentecost in A.D. 33 still exists in contemporary times, and continues to offer true worship to God. Jesus founded only one church, and the current “Christian” denominations are not Christian at all (Mt.16:18). Because they teach “for doctrines the commandments of men,” they form no part of the Lord’s church (Mt.15:9). The following articles and audio sermons are a call to restore the original church in all its doctrinal and moral purity by carefully adhering to the New Testament pattern.
This video sermon entitled “The Undenominational Church” was taken originally broadcast on the Let the Bible Speak program in 1993. The host was Johnny Elmore (1931-2019). We hope you enjoy this timely presentation.

The Ancient Faith website is a thematic collection of scholarly yet simple Bible essays and sermons, many of which were composed by Restoration preachers such as J.W. McGarvey, Moses Lard, Benjamin Franklin, and Alexander Campbell. These courageous men of faith through hours of Bible investigation studied themselves out of denominationalism, asking for “the old paths” (Jer. 6:16) and seeking to return to “the faith once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). We join with these men in their fervent plea to restore “the ancient order,” “the ancient gospel” or, as it was sometimes called, “the ancient faith.”
