No. The church of Christ is a direct continuation of the church established in the first century by Christ. The church was established in Acts 2 when the first believers were baptized and gathered together in worship and communion (Acts 2:41, 47). When Christ said he would establish His church, he used the singular form of "church." There was no intention that many bodies of believers begin that teach many varying doctrines and creeds. The church seeks to follow only God's word so that the oneness of the church may be continued.
