Who We Are

We are a group of people who believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God.  We believe that God is the Creator and sustainer of all life.  We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  We believe that the Holy Spirit lives in the people of God and leads the people of God.

We are humble members of the restoration movement, a people seeking to follow the Bible as our sole guide of faith and practice.  We seek to be like the Bereans (Acts 17:11) in our commitment to ongoing study to ensure that we are growing in our walk with God.

We worship acappella, unaccompanied by musical instruments in our worship services, and we share in the Lord’s Supper every first day of the week (Acts 20:7) to remember the sacrifice of Jesus for our sins.

Every baptized believer is a minister of God in our congregation.  We believe in the priesthood of all believers.  Our congregation is led by spiritual shepherds or elders, served by deacons and by our minister of the Word.

Our goal is to love God and to love people (Matthew 22:34-40).  We are imperfect people who serve a Perfect, Holy, and Loving God.  We invite you to come and get to know this God with us…

Purpose

Here are the basic items that anchor together the churches of Christ:

1) We believe in the one God revealed in the Bible. We believe the one God is made up of the three beings known as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

2) We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God. We are confident God inspired the men that wrote each book of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. When we need direction in life, are confronted with temptation, or need a source to encourage hope and worship, we turn to the Bible. The Bible is our guide for everyday living. Our goal is to “speak where the Bible speaks and silent where the Bible is silent.” We are committed to continually studying God’s Word, the Bible, to see how we can most closely give God the personal and collective worship He desires.

3) We believe the church is made up of God’s people on earth. Jesus is our head, and we are His body (Galatians 5:23). We do not seek to be a denomination, we merely want to be the body of our Savior.

4) From our understanding of the Bible, there are some important steps to being saved. Every step is rooted in scripture. These steps are actually a process in which a person grasps them both emotionally and intellectually. The Lord says we must believe in the power and person of Jesus Christ (John 3:16). It is also necessary for us to repent, or change our way of living that is against Jesus (Acts 2:37-38). Jesus has also asked us to be willing to confess to other people that we are His (Romans 10:9-10). God, through the New Testament, also requires to be immersed, or baptized, into Christ (Romans 6:3-11). At that point we become part of Christ’s body (Galatians 3:26-27). Just following the above steps certainly does not mean the Christian is finished with religion. Instead, a wonderful life in Jesus begins.

5) We look forward to the final day, when Jesus will claim His own for an eternal home with Him. According to 2 Thessalonians 4, Jesus will return in the clouds and his followers will rise, meet Him in the sky, and ultimately be with Him forever.

6) Most people notice our worship is unique in two aspects: a) our singing is unaccompanied by musical instruments and, b) we take the Lord’s Supper every week. We do not do these things uniquely just because we like them better in this manner. We do so because our study of Scripture has led us to believe this is the way we can best honor our Lord.
