About Us-

Continuing the pattern of the church established by Jesus Christ in the first century, we strive to maintain the authority of the Scriptures and do our best to speak where the Bible speaks, and to be silent where it is silent.   Below is a Biblical introduction to the church of Christ:

We are simply Christians, without any denominational affiliation.  Our worship is simple and patterned after the examples in the New Testament:

We sing as instructed by Mathew 26:30, Colossians 3:16 and Ephesians 5:19

We pray as instructed by Matthew 5:44, 26:41, 1 Timothy 2:1, James 5:16.

We teach/preach as we have example in Acts 5:42, 8:4 and 20:7.

We give our means, as instructed by 1 Corinthians 16:2, 2 Corinthians 9:7, and, in the absence of any other New Testament instructions or examples, this is our only method of raising funds.  We are cautious to remain within the teachings of Christ (2 John 8-9).

We partake of the bread and fruit of the vine as we have example in Matthew 26:26-30, Mark 14:22-26 and Luke 22:17-20, meeting on the first day of the week, as recorded in John 20:19, John 20:26, Acts 20:7 & 1 Corinthians 16:2; we partake of the Lord's Supper each and every first day of the week.

We worship in a respectful and reverent manner (1 Cor 14:40 But let all things be done properly and in an orderly manner NASB).

We are close to one another "in honor, preferring one another" as instructed by Romans 12:10. We frequently gather in one another's homes and go on outings together, on an individual basis, not as a church program.  Our meals or social activities, for which we are each personally responsible, do not take place where we assemble for worship, in accordance with I Corinthians 11:22 & 34.

The funds that we dedicate to the Lord are spent for:

1.    Preaching, as directed by 1 Corinthians 9:3-18 & 1 Timothy 5:17-18

2.    Support of needy saints (brethren, Christians), as indicated in Acts 11:29, Romans 15:26, 1 Corinthians 16:1, 2 Corinthians 8:4 and 2 Corinthians 9:12.   We do not burden the church (treasury) with unauthorized benevolence, in accordance with 1 Timothy 5:16.   Giving to the poor, as indicated in I Corinthians 13:3, is in an individual responsibility and is not indicated in the Scriptures as a work of the church as a collective.

3.    Payment for a place to assemble and items necessary for worship to comply with Hebrews 10:25 and the scriptures that instruct us on how to worship.

We strive, to the best of our abilities, to keep His word, as instructed in 1 John 2:5.

Your questions are most welcome... 1 Peter 3:15 "but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence."
