Dumas Church of Christ


We Believe:


The Bible is the inspired, inerrant word of God and final authority in life and doctrine.

  • 2 Peter 1:20-21   Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
  • 2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.


There is One true God (Godhead) existing as three inter-cooperative beings:  the Father, the Son (Word) and the Holy Spirit.  Each one possesses all the attributes of deity.

  • Genesis 1:26a And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness: ...
  • Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD.
  • Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.


Salvation is a free gift from God. The only sufficient payment for our sins is the blood of Christ. It was through His death as our substitute that He paid the debt we owe. No one is saved by his own merits or good deeds

  • Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: It is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
  • Romans 4:4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.    
  • Romans 5:15 But the free gift is not like the transgression. for if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many. (NAS )


It is necessary to respond to God's free offer of salvation by faith, repentance, and baptism. When we confess Christ as the Son of God and are baptized by full body immersion, God meets us, forgives our sins and gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit that empowers and guides us in our Christian journey.

  • Acts 2:38 Then peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
  • Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
  • 1 Peter 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.


It is our goal to avoid creeds, traditions, works and innovations of man by endeavoring to unite and continue in the example of the original followers of Christ (the First century church).

  • 2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
  • Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.


We are each individual members of the body of Christ; Believers who accept each other because God has accepted each of us. 

  • Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
  • 1 Cor. 13:1 Though I speak with tongues of men and angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
  • 1 John 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his son Jesus Christ.
  • 1 John 1:6-7 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanses us from all sin.

Christians only

Each congregation is independent and every individual has spiritual liberty within the bounds of moral, Biblical living.

  • Acts 11:26b  ... And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.


We do not claim to be the only Christians, but we do claim to be Christians only.
