A friend is trying to fill me out on my Christian beliefs. All I know from him is that he uses David Padfield's study notes, and Padfield is a pastor of the non-denominational Church of Christ in Zion, Il. My friend goes to a non-denominational Church of Christ.

When I went to the below site, I can find no statement of faith, just articles on what is wrong with certain things along with a few debates. I would just like to find out their beliefs and where my friend is coming from. Here is the website. (article on Calvinism)

The "Church of Christ" rejects all and any formalized creed or confession which would explain why no "statement of faith" is found on their website. That denomination, which rejects even the idea that they are a denomination is fairly recent. They are often called "Campbellites" after one of the major proponents of that movement, Alexander Campbell, but they again reject any association with any individual. Their theology is basically semi-Pelagian and believe that baptism is an integral and necessary part of true conversion.

You can read more about them in myriad articles online, but a Wikipedia article can be found here: Churches of Christ. Now, whether this particular church; "Church of Christ in Zion" is part of the historical non-denominational Church of Christ, you will have to establish that from your 'friend'. grin Bottom line is they are a sect and reject all other belief systems that claim to be Christian, especially Calvinism... surprise, surprise. giggle
