PTC3 County Line Campus
The History of Our Church
According to records and stories of our forefathers, the County Line Christian Church is
one of the oldest Christian Churches in Georgia. Established in 1848, It was organized as a Church of Christ, as were others at that time, and is the oldest of this belief in Central Georgia. It could rightly be called “The Mother” of those in this area.
County Line is the second Christian Church organized in Georgia.

What We Believe
We believe that there is only One God, the giver of life, maker of Heaven and Earth, the Great I Am,
the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Who is triune in essence, divine in nature, eternal in power
and unchanging in character.
That the Bible is the written Word of God and is for the Church for instruction and correction, and for
the world to lead it to salvation. That the written Word of God is inspired—being God-breathed and is
therefore whole and true.
That there is only one Savior of mankind and His name is Jesus of Nazareth the Son of God—born
of a virgin, crucified under Roman rule and resurrected by the power of God He ascended to the
right hand of the Father and is returning one day for His Church.
That one comes into a relationship with Jesus that leads to salvation by surrendering one’s heart in
faith to follow Him in obedience.
That surrender to Jesus Christ comes about through believing that He is Christ, repenting of our
sins, being immersed in the ancient Biblical fashion, receiving the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and
living under the discipline of the Word of God and in the fellowship with His body the Church.
That the Church is the Body of Christ of which He is the Head.
That the Church is called to remember Christ around His table, hence when the Lord’s people, on
the Lord’s day, gather in the house dedicated to worship the Lord, that we gather around His table
and remember Him. Therefore, we offer the table so that each believer might do as instructed in
God’s Word and examine oneself and then participate.
That the Church is made up of those who follow Christ as His disciples by surrendering their hearts
and minds, soul and strength to Him.
That the Church has been sent by Christ into the whole world to proclaim the Good News, baptizing
and teaching to observe all things that Christ has given to us.
We have no conference, convention, or earthly ecclesiastical authority over us—only Christ and His
Word. We seek the unity of all believers in Christ upon the essential matters and the freedom of local
congregations and individual Christians in matters of opinion. Historically we follow the thoughts and
process of the Restoration movement as an independent congregation, which is elder-led and
We have no creed but Christ, no name but the one given in Scripture, no book of doctrine but the
Bible, no rule of faith and practice but the written Word of God.
In faith – unity; in opinions – liberty; in all things – love.
