All Are welcome
We welcome you to our services regardless of your religious beliefs. We encourage you to study God's word, the Bible, with us. We want to encourage anyone who is sincerely seeking the truth which is in Christ (Ephesians 4:20-24). You will find a warm, friendly atmosphere among us where the Bible is taught and genuine goodwill toward all people is apparent (Galatians 6:9-10).
what to expect
Many people hesitate to visit a church unless they know what it will be like. We believe that God's Word teaches that the true kingdom of God is a spiritual organization with Christ at its head (Ephesians 1:22-23); thus, there is only one church recognized by God (Ephesians 4:4-6), and it is comprised of individuals, not congregations (1 Corinthians 12:12-14). Local congregations are simply groups of such believers who work together in teaching others to obey God's Word, to encourage fellow Christians to fully obey God, and to help one another put godly principles into practice in one's daily life.
The purpose of our sermons and classes is to preach the gospel, which consists of building a relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ (Galatians 4:6-7) based upon sound Bible teaching (2 Timothy 2:2). You will be able to engage the group during our Bible classes and follow along in your own Bible as the lesson is presented; If you have any questions following the sermon, we encourage you to ask any member of the church following the service. We believe that the Scriptures are sufficient for all teaching (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Therefore, we do not appeal to any human creeds or other human authorities.
Our teaching is open to scrutiny from anyone, provided the Scriptures are used as the absolute authority for all matters.
Bible Classes for all Ages
Bible classes are conducted for all ages beginning at one year of age. This gives each person an opportunity to study the Bible with others of a like age group. Only the Bible, and Bible related subjects, will be taught in these classes. Discussions within these classes are encouraged in order to engage participants and ponder varying viewpoints.
We diligently strive to teach God's word without bias or denominational influence.
There will be singing by the entire congregation at every service (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16). This gives everyone an opportunity to praise God through song. Due to the example we see in the New Testament Church, our song services are all done in an “a cappella” style.
Concerning the Collection
According to Scripture, the collections are to be taken on the first day of the week and are voluntary offerings from the members of this congregation (1 Corinthians 16:1-2; 2 Corinthians 9:6-8). We do not ask, and do not expect, our visitors to give of their money.
The Lord's Supper
As directed by Jesus (Matthew 26:26-29), the apostle Paul (1 Corinthians 11:23-26), and the example of the early church (Acts 20:7), we join in the "supper" of the Lord every first day of the week. (This is also known as "communion.") This refers to unleavened bread and fruit of the vine (grape juice) being taken by each Christian to remember and commemorate Jesus' sacrifice on the cross for our sins.
