We Invite You To Worship God With Us - In Spirit And Truth.
Our Meeting House
We are a local body of Christians, part of the Bride of Christ, the called out, the church for which Christ died - the church of Christ. We endeavor to worship only as according to the pattern set forth in the New Testament, also called the apostles doctrine (Acts 2:42).
Where We Are...
Our Goal Is To Study God's Word And Share It With Our Community.
Our marquee is designed to let the community know what we are studying, to provoke thought and to share the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (for it is truly the power of God unto salvation (cf. Rom. 1:16-17)!
Our goal is to engender an atmosphere of warmth and welcome. As we meet to worship God, we also meet to fellowship with one another - to truly strive for a family, friendly environment. We strive to be a haven from the world - a place where one can heal, where one can grow spiritually and where we can all help one another be faithful to our Creator.
Praising God In Song
As part of our worship to God, we lift our voices to Him in song, according to the Scriptures (cf. Col. 3:16-17).
The Importance Of Prayer
Prayer is vital to the life of human beings. God has placed eternity in our hearts (Eccl. 3:11) and because of that we understand that He exists (Rom. 1:18-21). As part of our relationship with the Father in Jesus Christ, we have been given the avenue of prayer to make our petitions know to God - both for ourselves and for one another.
The Mission Of The Lord's Church
God exists (Heb. 11:6). God desires that all men be saved (1 Tim. 2:1-7). In order for that desire to be fulfilled, He has given the responsibility to the church to carry out the commission of preaching the Gospel to all mankind. It is because of this that we do our best to share the Gospel - the Good News of Jesus Christ - with everyone we can, and in as many ways as we can.
“Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, ‘Which is the first commandment of all?’ Jesus answered him, ‘the first of all the commandments is: “Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one. And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.” This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” There is no other commandment greater than these’” (Mk. 12:28-31).
There is One God whom we are to love, to serve, to obey and to follow. Jesus Christ is His only begotten Son who died on the Cross of Calvary for the sins of all of mankind. He was buried and was raised again on the third day. It is by His blood that we are cleansed (cf. 1 Jn. 1:5-10) when we submit to His Word in belief (cf. Mk. 16:16; Jn. 3:16), confessing Jesus Christ as the Son of God (cf. Mt. 16:15-18; Acts 8:36-37; Rom. 10:10), repenting of our sinful life and its deeds (cf. Lk. 13:1-5; Acts 17:30; Acts 2:38), and being baptized for the remission of our sins (cf. Mk. 16:16; Jn. 3:5; Acts 2:38; 8:36-38; 22:16; Rom. 6:1-10). It is by His blood that we stand cleansed which occurs when we walk in the light as He is in the Light.
When we are obedient to His Word, we are added to His church by Him (cf. Acts 2:40-47). There is only one church. It is the Lord’s church, the one which He purchased with His blood (cf. Mt. 16:16;Acts 20:28), the church of Christ (cf. Rom. 16:16) which is description of ownership; for it is the Lord’s church. The distinctive nature of the Lord's church is the doctrine of Christ. Any descriptive name (such as the church of God (cf. 1 Cor. 1:2); church of the Laodiceans (cf. Col. 4:16); church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ (cf. 1 Thess. 1:1); church of the living God (1 Tim. 3:15); church of the firstborn (cf. Heb. 12:23)) are descriptions of our Lord's one church (either local congregations or the universal church), only using different aspects of God to describe it. There is only one church. The Lord's church. It is distinguished by it's name (as just pointed out) and its doctrine (1 Tim. 4:13-16; 2 Tim. 4:1-4; 2 Jn. 7-11).
We are to be directed by His Word. It is His Word to which we are to listen (cf. Mt. 17:5), to preach (cf. 2 Tim. 4:1-5) and to obey (cf. 2 Thess. 1:8). His Word is to be our only guide and authority on matters of faith and godliness; by it we are equipped completely for every good work (cf. 2 Tim. 3:14-17). It is by His Word which man will either be justified or condemned (cf. Jn. 12:48; Jas. 1:21; Rev. 20:11-15). We are to live faithfully until death (cf. Mt. 10:22; Rev. 2:10).
In His Word we are taught that a Christian life is to be one characterized by love (cf. Mt. 5:44-48; Jn. 13:34; 1 Jn. 2:8; 2 Jn 1:5), true character (cf. 1 Tim. 4:12; 2 Pet. 1:5-8), sacrifice (cf. Rom. 12:1-2;Gal. 6:1-2; Phil. 2:1-5;), kindness, hospitality and concern for the brethren (cf. Rom. 12:9-21) and a mind that is set on the hope of heaven (cf. Mt. 25:1-12; Rom. 8:18-25). We are, in fact, to strive for this goal as we are sojourners and pilgrims in a foreign land looking unto a better country, a heavenly country (cf. 1 Pet. 2:11; Heb. 11:16).
