We believe the Bible is the wholly inspired word of God and we are committed to teaching and living its principles.

We know that everyone needs the God in their lives  Please feel welcome to ask any question about what we do.

 

Churches of Christ are a worldwide brotherhood of independent churches.  No two congregations are exactly alike and, although you will see many similarities, you will find some variations in culture and “personality.”  We have no written creed, but the following statements represent many of our biblical beliefs:

 

  • God created the universe and is rules it: (Genesis1:1; Acts 17:24-28)
  • God’s gift of grace is available to everyone: (Romans 3:22-24; 1 Timothy2:3-4)
  • Jesus is the Unique Son of God and our Savior: (Acts 2:36; Colossians1:13-20)
  • Jesus is the ONLY way to eternal life: (John 14:6; Acts 4:12)
  • The Bible is our only authority and is inspired by God’. (2 Timothy3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
  • The church is the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:27-28; Ephesians 5:29-30)
  • The church is called to worship God every “first day of the week” through singing, prayer, preaching, giving, communion, and the reading of Scripture (Acts 2:42; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians16:2; Ephesians 5:19-20; 1 Timothy 4:13)
  • Our mission is to spread the Gospel to the entire world (Matthew28:18-20; 2 Corinthians 5:20)
  • Our response to the good news of Jesus includes belief in Him, public confession of that belief, repentance from our old way of life, and baptism by immersion for the forgiveness of sins: (Acts 16:30-31; Romans10:9; Acts 2:36-39)
  • Christ will return on a day known only to God (Matthew.24:42-44; 1 Thessalonians.5:1-2)
  • Our lives should glorify God (Matthew 5:14-16; 1 Peter.2:11-12)

 

We believe that Jesus wants all Christians united.  Before His arrest, Jesus offered this prayer:  “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.  May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” (John 17:20-21)  The visible disunity of the body, into differing denominations, was never His intent and only serves to confuse His message. We call on all believers to be simply “Christians”; not separated by differing.  We are voluntarily pursuing visible unity by laying aside things that have been added to the New Testament message.  We do not believe we are the only Christians: we are trying to be Christians only. Like any ideal, it is something we pursue, not something we consider to have perfectly attained. We hope you will find in our worship, our organization and our members a reflection of our Bible-centered intent: attempting to work out a first century faith in a 21st century setting.  We invite you to join us on this journey: following the simple message of a simple carpenter.
