*New bible class starting time is now 9:00 am.
*Our new worship time is now 10:00 am.
You are invited to come and join us as we seek to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2nd Peter 3:18).
We desire to adhere to the teachings of God’s word in everything we do. Since we are now under the New Testament (covenant, agreement) of Jesus Christ , the New Testament is our sole guide for faith and practice. (Hebrews 8:6-7, 13, 9:15)
We have no creeds or religious guidelines other than that provided by the New Testament. As individuals, we identify ourselves as Christians (Acts 11:26). As a congregation, we identify ourselves as the church of Christ (Romans 16:16).
Concerning God’s redemptive plan, we adhere to the New Testament teaching of hearing the Word. (scripture), believing (Mark 16:16), repenting (Acts 2:38), being baptized (immersed) (Colossians 2:11-12), rising to walk in newness of life. (Rom 6:4)
This is to emphasize our relationship to the One who died to save us from our sins (1 Peter 2:24), and who now reigns as Lord, as head over the church, which is His body (Colossians 1:18).
As members of His body, we meet on the first day of the week (Sunday) to worship God “in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24), encourage and build one another up in the faith (Hebrews 10:24-25), and learn more of God’s will for our lives through Bible study (Matthew 4:4, Ephesians 5:17), as the New Testament instructs.
During this time of worship, men lead us in rememberingthe death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ as we participate in the Lord’s Supper (communion), and help direct us as we lift our voices in acapella song to our God. Following this memorial, we take a collection to help support the Lord’s work in our area (1st Corinthians 16:1-2). During this joyful time together, various men will also unite us in prayer to our God.
We offer you a heartfelt invitation to visit with us. You’ll be our honored guest! May God bless you in your efforts to serve and please Him!
