This page provides information about Maryborough church of Christ in Queensland.
Churches of Christ (Romans 16:16) are independent congregations having no connection with any religious organisation. Rather, their members are happy to be simply Christians, following the Bible and only the Bible. There were churches of Christ long before any of today's confusing array of denominations and sects existed. That was in the first century. This is the twenty-first century, and such churches still exist in great numbers around the world. One of them is the church of Christ which meets in the Tinana CWA Hall in Maryborough Queensland.
The church has fewer than 20 members. They are baptized believers in Christ following the scriptures as their only creed, and not affiliated with any denomination. They are simply Christians.

Whilst the church described on this page lends its name to this website, and encourages it along with several other Australian churches, there may be some matters addressed on this website concerning which there are differences of opinion, or of interpretation. Some members and ministers of the church may hold a differing view. In churches of Christ the Bible is the final authority, not any particular preacher. It is a healthy sign in the churches that all doctrines and practices are subject to review in the light of God’s word.
