By Way Of Introduction
Many people hesitate to visit a church unless they know what it will be like when they go.
We hope this page will help you know what to expect when you visit us.
We Are Not A Denomination
Neither are we inter-denominational. It is our sincere desire to be non-denominational, to wear no other name than Christ’s, and to be known simply as Christians, members of the body of Christ. (Acts 11:26; Ephesians 1:22-23). Collectively we refer to ourselves as the church of Christ, the Lord’s church, or some other scriptural description to identify ourselves as the saved people belonging to Christ (Ephesians 5:23).
We Strive To Be The Same Church Described In The New Testament
It is our purpose to be identified with the Christians of the first century. We believe this to be possible to all who will learn, believe and be guided by the plain teaching of God’s word. When Jesus declared such to be “the seed of the kingdom” (Luke 8:11), He was emphasizing a known fact of nature that specific kinds of seed, when planted, will always produce after their kind. For example, wheat will produce wheat. In like manner the word of God, when planted in the hearts of honest people, and obeyed, will produce Christians just as it did in the first century – nothing more and nothing less.
The Bible Is Our Only Guide
Therefore we have no man-made creeds to follow. We are governed in faith and conduct by the Bible alone. While recognizing the guiding principles of the Old Testament, we seek to conform to the pattern of the New Testament (Hebrews 1:1-2; I Peter 4:11). We accept the Bible as being both verbally inspired and infallible in content (II Peter 1:20-21; I Corinthians 2:11-13). Consequently, when the Bible speaks upon any given subject, its pronouncement is accepted as final. By its own testimony, no one may alter a single word with impunity (Deuteronomy 4:2; Proverbs 30:6; Revelation 22:18-19).
