Who We Are
This assembly is a group of Christians drawn together in the love of Jesus Christ for worship and service. For one to become a Christian one must become a member of Christ's body, His Church and be in an active
fellowship with others of like faith. This assembly is God's creation.
Members wear no name but Christian; yet, we do not claim to have attained to everything this name represents. We recognize our weakness, but rely upon God's strength . We are a divine-human fellowship. Our humanity is subject to error, but our divine Head judges, chastens, redeems us, and sends us out to help establish His kingdom, the church by serving others and proclaiming the Good News of the church.
Though we recognize other Churches of Christ, we are not a denomination. We have no central headquarters or presidents. We are free to study, teach and work as our conscience, directed by the bible, lead us.
What you can expect
We carry on our work and worship as we understand the scriptures to teach. We partake of the Lord's Supper each Lord's Day, Sunday, following the pattern of the first century church.
Our music is the praise of our lips "without" mechanical accompaniment. We will sing several songs and hymns together led by one or more leaders.
Our prayers are intended for power, and not just as a part of the program. God the Father is the only one to whom the prayers may be addressed. It is understood that Christ the mediator between God and man, therefore all
prayers are offered through Christ or in the name of Christ. During the worship service, several of the men will lead the congregation in public prayers.
Our giving is liberal, symbolic of the dedication of all that we have and all that we are. Each first day of the week the members lay by store as they have been prospered. The amount of any individual gift is generally known only to the one who gave it and to the Lord.
The word of God is given, for we believe that in Christian worship God always speaks in His words, and that we must be listening. We praise God in encouraging each other through study and preaching of His Word. The entire worship program is planned, but not rigid.
Entrance into this assembly is by baptism or transfer of membership. Those not Christians are taught to believe in Christ with their whole heart, to repent of their sins, to confess their faith in Jesus and to be baptized into union with Him for the forgiveness of their sins and the reception of the Holy Spirit .
Since believers alone are baptized, we do not practice infant baptism. And as baptism instituted by Jesus and practiced by the early church was immersion, we follow that practice today. Thus baptism truly symbolizes the death, burial and resurrection of Christ as this becomes to the penitent believer his burial of the former sinful self and resurrection to new life in Christ.
We do not exist for selfish purposes, but to follow Him who came to minister and to give His life a ransom for many. Christ is our only head and the bible is our only creed of faith and practice, it's our only guide to heaven.
A Place where we serve God and to assist you in your walk with the Lord.
