7. CHURCH OF CHRIST – NIGERIA

The Church of Christ is the body of Christ, and has no founder or owner. The Church right from inception of Church has never accepted this celebration.

The church of Christ does not observe Christmas because of the apostle Peter’s statement in I Peter 4:11, “If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God.” We cannot speak as the oracles of God and speak of Christmas. Why? Because the oracles of God are silent about such a holiday. If the New Testament spoke of Christmas and we had the teaching that Christians in New Testament times observed that holiday, the church of Christ would do so now.
