About Us

OUR MISSION

Equip the family of God to be Jesus in the home, the community, and the world.
 

OUR VISION

“Seek Jesus, Find Jesus, Share Jesus”
Seek Jesus
 
Jesus says those who seek will find. (Matt 7:7) It is only by doing our own seeking and being open to the process of looking that we discover God. We can’t be given the answers and get the same result. Because seeking and looking can be a frustrating experience we are here to help people on their journey to seek who Jesus is for themselves. The result is that we will find someone precious.
Find Jesus
 
There are many counterfeits that are being passed off as original. Counterfeit money, paintings and even Christians. Jesus calls disciples to follow him so they can find. The early disciples found and believed Jesus to be the Son of God. It didn’t all come the first day. Finding Jesus takes some time to discover what you really have and what he is worth.
Share Jesus
 
Once we have found Jesus for ourselves then we can share Jesus. We don’t offer him as the answer to all your problems but the will make sense of your life as you discover his will. He is the Son of God and his words are eternal life.  (John 6:63,68) We share his words so other people can discover Jesus and how to have this full, abundant, eternal life.

 

Jesus
 
Jesus builds his church. The church at the beginning of the twenty-first century can only make progress by returning to the first century. Our reason for existence is to become the church one can read about in the Bible. Our plea is to be just Christians.
This does not arise out of an arrogant self-righteousness on our part, but an earnest desire for religious unity based completely on the Bible. We do not ask for man’s allegiance to a human organization or system, only to Jesus Christ. Our task is to call men and women everywhere back to God’s eternal Word. It is our only guide.
People
 
The focus of our faith is upon the person of Jesus Christ. He is our Savior and our Lord. Only through His sacrificial death on the cross are we able to live in relationship with our Holy God. And that, incidentally, is why we wear His name. The “Church of Christ” is not a title used in a sectarian sense, but is intended to communicate our desire to belong fully to Christ.
 
We strive to be very aware of needs and opportunities for service in the area as first century Christianity to the modern world.
Spirit
 
Spiritual growth and development are difficult in a world that has too many answers to the same question. It would help to understand the question rather than just be told the answer. We have in-depth discussions of Scripture and life and how the two fit together. To be effective, the Bible must be practical and to be meaningful, life must have a spiritual element. We are not afraid to ask tough questions and find real answers.

Worship

We endeavor to follow the New Testament pattern as we worship God on Sunday, the first day of the week (Mt. 28:1; Acts 20:7;  Rev. 1:10). Our acts of worship are as follows:
Prayers will be offered to our Father in heaven, through the resurrected Jesus Christ. Jesus now reigns over His kingdom, the church, from heaven. (Mt. 6:9; 1 Tim. 2:5; Rm. 8:34; Jn. 18:36; Col. 1:13,14; Rev. 1:6; 3:21)
 
The singing of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs from the heart to praise God and edify one another will occur throughout the worship period. Man made musical instruments will not be used. It is the way the first century church worshiped God. Each participant in the worship is encouraged to praise God in this way. (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16,17; Heb. 13:15)
 
The Lord’s Supper will be served. It will consist of unleavened bread (a cracker-like composition) and the fruit of the vine (grape juice). Every Christian is encouraged to participate as we give thanks and remember our Lord as He instructed (Mt. 26:26-28; 1 Cor. 11:23-24, 25-26, 27-29; Acts 20:7).
 
An opportunity to contribute monetarily is provided for the members of the congregation. Visitors or non-members are not asked to contribute to the local work of the church. If you choose to contribute it will be entirely your choice (1 Cor. 16:1-2; Acts 20:35; 2 Cor. 8:12; 2 Cor. 9:7).
 
Listening to the word of God being preached offers opportunity for encouragement, hope, faith building, exhortation, instruction in righteousness and rebuke. “Amens!” are welcome and encouraged. Christianity results from teaching publicly and privately.
You may also request a free personal Bible study. (Acts 20:20; Rm. 1:15-16; 2 Tim. 4:2; Ps. 106:48; Rev. 22:21).
