Every object continues in a state of rest or of uniform speed in a straight line by zero net force.

is this statement correct?

Are you trying to reformulate Newton's first law?

yes. but as Kuruman asked, what is the real question or did you just want to state an equivilance to Newtons first law?

If it's a one dimensional point. Otherwise if it's an extended body you have to consider if the zero net force produces a torque.
