Who We Are

We are a congregation after the pattern described in the New Testament.

We are simply Christians (Acts 11:26; 26:28; 1 Peter 4:15-16), followers of Christ, and we comprise a church that is “of Christ” (Romans 16:16). We do not wear or accept any designations that are not found in the scriptures, and we do not subscribe to any creed drawn up by men. Christ is our only creed, the Bible our only guide.

We are striving to be a church after the pattern found in the New Testament — in how we become Christians and in how we live as Christians; in what we teach; in the work we do as a church; in the way that we are organized.

We are trying to speak where the Bible speaks and to be silent where the Bible is silent, to do Bible things in Bible ways and to call Bible things by Bible names. We are interested in honoring God, in following Christ, and in learning, doing, and teaching God’s word.

We are your neighbors, your fellow-workers, and your fellow-students. We are people saved from sin who are interested in the salvation of others. We want Heaven to be our eternal home and yours. YOU ARE INVITED TO OUR ASSEMBLIES

When you visit our assemblies, you will be received as a friend. We believe this to be the natural attitude of those who truly love God and mankind. Though you may at first be among strangers, we hope that you will come to know us well and count us as friends.

We believe the Bible teaches that sinners are saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9), which includes belief in Christ, repentance, confession, and baptism (John 3:16; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Romans 10:9-10; Titus 3:5-7). The church of Christ is organized as in New Testament times (Philippians 1:1). We believe Jesus is the Son of God (John 20:30-31), the Bible is inspired of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17), and that Jesus will return to take His kingdom (church) home to God (1 Corinthians 15:24). We emphasize sincere worship in accordance with God’s Word (Matthew 15:8-9; John 4:24), every-member evangelism (Acts 8:4), godly living (Titus 2:11-12), love for one other (John 13:33-34), and helping those in need (James 1:27). We believe religious unity is possible in a day of division by simply following the New Testament pattern and putting aside human creeds and traditions (John 17:17-21).
