The Bible - Our Only Guide The goals of our assemblies are to: glorify God, enrich our spiritual lives, and provide a comfortable and inviting environment for those who want to follow Jesus. Who Are We? We are a New Testament, Bible based congregation of caring and loving Christians. Our only guide is the Word of God, the Bible. Our only desire is to be faithful servants of Christ. We are not connected or affiliated with any denomination. We are neither Catholic nor Protestant. We are not controlled by any ecclesiastical hierarchy, papacy, or any organization not taught in the scripture since every member is a priest under Christ, who is our High Priest (1 Peter 2:9). Each congregation of the churches of Christ stands independently of the others.
What is our purpose?
We seek to establish and maintain Christianity, as did Jesus and His apostles. We want to make Christ and His Word the center of our lives and pray that His Spirit will continue to remake us into His own image (Romans 8:29). We try to help mold the image of Jesus into the hearts of men, women, and children who wish to follow Him. We share Him and His offer of salvation, hope, and happiness in and to a world full of struggles and sadness. We support each other in times of need and/or sorrow and we rejoice with each other in times of happiness.What do we believe?We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God, fully and complete without fault. (2 Peter 1:20-21, Hebrews 4:12) God is more powerful than man and He has kept His word pure. (Psalms 95:3-5, 1 Timothy 6:13-16, 1 Corinthians 1:25) Baptism through immersion in water is necessary for forgiveness of sins and eternal life. (Acts 2:37-38, 1 Peter 3:21) The church’s spiritual leadership is directed to be comprised of men serving in the capacity of elders and deacons. (Acts 6:1-4, 1 Timothy 3:1-13, Titus 1:6-9) Men are directed to lead in all aspects of the public worship service. (1 Timothy 2:8, 1 Corinthians 14:26-34) We also believe that we should speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent. On matters of faith we should have unity, on matters of opinion we should have freedom.
