      Millersville Church of Christ is used or misused to defend Salvation by grace through faith. Ephesians 2:8. Writing creeds are often dangerous when they tamper with clear statements that BAPTISM SAVES US.
      SALVATION

      We believe that because of sin, all men are separated from God and in need of salvation. The free gift of salvation is made possible through Jesus Christ, His death on the cross, and His resurrection from the dead. Salvation is available to all, received by grace through obedient faith. (Rom. 3:23, 2 Cor. 7:10; 1 John 5:12; John 3:3-5)

      Because Millersville Church of Christ continues to say WATER BAPTISM

      Jesus commanded that His followers be baptized in water as their identification with His death, burial and resurrection. We believe that when a person is water baptized, it symbolizes the passing away of their old life and the beginning of their new.


      That is false: The Death, Burial and Resurrection where Jesus became the FIRST BEGOTTEN from the dead. That FORM of Doctrine is the Greek TUPOS which is a "Pattern intended to be imitated." When people OBEY that pattern gracefully provided they are THEN free from sin.

      THIS ALLOWS RANCOR TO UNDERSTAND:

      Ephesians 2:8 says, “For by grace are you saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves.” The only way any of us can enter into a relationship with God is because of His grace toward us. Grace began in the Garden of Eden when God killed an animal to cover the sin of Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:21). He could have killed the first humans right then for their disobedience. But rather than destroy them, He chose to make a way for them to be right with Him. That pattern of grace continued throughout the Old Testament when God instituted blood sacrifices as a means to atone for sinful men. It was not the physical blood of those sacrifices, per se, that cleansed sinners; it was the grace of God that forgave those who trusted in Him (Hebrews 10:4; Genesis 15:6). Sinful men showed their faith by offering the sacrifices that God required.

      Missing Romans 3:21 always fails to understand that THE LAW is opposite of FAITH, GOSPEL OR SPIRIT or THE FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST.

      Rom. 3:21 But now the righteousness of God WITHOUT THE LAW is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
      Rom. 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith OF Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
      Rom. 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
      Rom. 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:


      Romans 6 would have been a more faithful teaching speaking of baptism:

      Rom. 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
      Rom. 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.


      SECOND EXAMPLE
      2Cor. 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

      Paul is not speaking to UNSAVED people

      THIRD EXAMPLE
      1John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

      Earlier John wrote:
      1John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
      1John 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?


      [Jesus was NOT God so Trinitarians are still in their sins. Speaking of Baptism:

      1John 5:6 This is he that came [accompany, appear] by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit IS TRUTH

      Spirit or breath which produces WORDS is NOT another God:

      John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are life.

    ...........................THE BOOK

    What Happened at the Madison Church of Christ?


    There are thousands of churches being taken over across America.

    This book is only about one of those churches. It's about the Madison Church Of Christ. By studying the methods used here along with the resource references you might be able to inoculate your church. At the very least you will recognize the signs early on.

    Many of the current members of the Madison Church of Christ still don't know what happened.
    Some never will know! This book is for them as well.

    Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ.

    It thrived for many years on the vision of it's elders and those of it's ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ.

    At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm.

    They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ.

    The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late.....

    At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off so new techniques could be used to go out and reach the unchurched through new "Contemporary Holy Entertainment" methods developed by the "Community Church Movement"

    Old members had to be kept on board long enough to get their plans ready, or the funds would not be there to pay for the new building. So by the plans very nature, it had to be secret.

    The church had no plan in effect to renew or approve elders. There was never any need. The elders had always been "as approved by God". 10 of the last 15 elders would begin to shed some doubt on that.

    The Elders did not even need a majority at first, because some of the elders went along unwittingly.

    This edition starts shortly after some of the members begin to smell something strange in January 2001. Later editions may go back and fill in some of the timeline.

    To even start to understand whats happening here, you must read the background materials in the first of the book.

    This is only the first edition, and not the end. New editions will be printed as needed. To keep abreast of current changes, please visit our web site; http://www.concernedmembers.com/madison

    Here is the list of players;

    5 Godly Elders
    10 Not so Godly Elders
    120 "Deacons" (allegiance unknown)
    2,800 - 4,000 church "members"
    2 "teners" (people who have publicly confessed to have broken all ten commandments)
    Unknown number of "sinners" (This is what the 10 elders call us.)
    Unknown number of "demons" (Flying everywhere, to many to count)
