This site is maintained and financed by an evangelist of the Churches of Christ/Christian Churches of the Restoration Movement. This ministry is one that seeks to promote and preserve the restoration ideal. The Restoration Movement, as it is called, grew out of a simple plea: A plea that insisted that the Bible is the final authority. The plea in America began as the pioneers began to settle in the new land. The leaders wanted to take churches that were filled with man-made doctrines, back to the simple message of the New Testament. The intent was not to start a new denomination, but rather to restore. The Churches of Christ/Christian Churches are not part of any denomination, but simply refer to themselves as Christians. The “Bible only makes Christians only”! The churches of the Restoration Movement strive to “do Bible things in Bible ways and call Bible things by Bible names“! The congregations are restoring the church to the original, apostolic model in doctrine, polity and life. The standard for restoration is the New Testament. The Word of God is the basis for the unity among believers. Paul told the church at Ephesus to be “diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace“. He then list out seven items that are the basis of this unity: “There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all” (Ephesians 4:1-6). It is the goal of restorationplea.com to restore these simple biblical principles.
