    Bear in mind that I'm DOC (and there are some differences between us), but I'm not aware of any "official doctrine" for either Churches of Christ, Christian Churches, or DOC churches. Am I wrong? If so, could someone elucidate?

    Each assembly is autonomous. The Bible is the only real common doctrine among all of the churches of Christ.

    People love to point to a "beginning" in order to ascribe some sort of pecking order among the denominations. The churches of Christ derive their organizational structure from the first century assemblies (as recorded in scripture) and so they are not only non-denominational, but largely anti-denominational.
