LET US INTRODUCE OURSELVES:
First, as individuals we are called Christians, a special name given to followers of Christ (Acts 11:26). As a group of believers we are a church. "Church of Christ" is just one scriptural description among many for assemblies of Christ-followers (Romans 16:16), and we do not intend to use it as a denominational title. We’re a group of people who belong to Jesus Christ (Matthew 16:18, Ephesians 1:22-23), like the ones you can read about in the New Testament (Acts 2:47, 8:1).
We believe God communicates with man through His word, the Bible. The scriptures are complete. There is no need for creeds, traditions, or latter day revelations (2 Timothy 3:15-17; Galatians 1:6-8). We are not at liberty to subjectively interpret, add to or take away from God’s word (2 John 9).
We offer an environment where you can worship and grow toward your God, serving Christ according to His will!
HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT WHEN YOU VISIT OUR ASSEMBLIES:A DIFFERENT KIND OF BUILDING
You might notice that our house of meeting is a little different from the average church building. Where are the sports and recreational facilities? Our members enjoy these things, but we do them together at other times and in other places. All the resources collected for our church are devoted to spreading the gospel and equipping the members for worshipping God, being comforted and edified by His words to us, and relieving their needs if hardship or tragedy strike.A WARM WELCOME
You will be greeted at the door with a warm smile and a welcoming handshake. The church meets in the auditorium for announcements, prayer, and songs, before going to Bible classes. The purpose of our classes are to improve our knowledge of the Bible--to understand what it says and to help each of us be able to determine what it means for us today. We encourage your participation as we are all learning together.BIBLE-PATTERNED WORSHIP
After classes on Sunday morning, everyone returns to the auditorium to worship God by singing and praying together, taking the Lord’s Supper (a memorial of Christ’s sacrifice), making a monetary offering (visitors are never solicited), and hearing a lesson from God’s Word.
Our families worship together, the children learning to be a part of worshipping God from the example of their parents—the very best source! (Proverbs 22:6) (Of course, a nursery is available for changing babies or calming unruly children.)
It is important to us to live our lives according to what the Bible shows us. The same applies to our worship. The Bible is full of examples of acceptable and vain worship in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. We will be following the examples of acceptable worship found in the New Testament. God cares about the form as well as the sincerity of worship (John 4:24).
The New Testament church met regularly for several different reasons. Almost every chapter in the book of Acts records something that the church was busy doing. Those examples were recorded for our benefit, and this church follows them—strengthening, equipping, and encouraging in the same ways. (See Hebrews 10:22-25; Ephesians 4.)
Our God is alive, our Lord and Shepherd is Christ, our goal is Heaven, and our guide is the Bible, delivered by the Holy Spirit. If you believe in simple Christianity, there’s a place for you here—come join us on our journey!
"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:28-29).
