The Belton Church of Christ offers a full page of information about what the beliefs they teach are and post their sermons on their website in video and audio format so that way you can see how the Belton Church conducts its praise and worship.
If you are still confused or would like to know more about the religion, then you can contact their office, where they have a friendly staff that can explain to you what the beliefs are.
