About Us

What is the Church of Christ?

The Churches of Christ are part of what is known as the Restoration Movement. The goal of this movement is to break away from denominational creeds and traditions and to restore the worship practices, organization, and government of the early church established by Jesus and his disciples. Therefore, we consider ourselves to be non-denominational and believe this is God's desire for all of Christianity. 

(John 17: 20-21; Ephesians 4: 4-6).

We have no creed other than that of Christ (John 6: 68), and use no book other than the Bible (2 Timothy 3: 16-17). We consider all penitent believers who have been baptized (immersed) for the forgiveness of their sins (John 3: 5, Acts 2: 38, Romans 6: 1-4) to be our brethren (Acts 2: 41, 47).

What to Expect During Worship

Below is a list of practices that you can expect during our worship service.

  • Singing. We sing acapella - no choirs, no musical instruments - just pure vocals blending together in harmony, with everyone participating as we lift up our voices to the Lord. This is how the early church worshipped and we believe it is God's wish for us today. Ephesians 5: 19 says, "Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord."
     

  • Prayer. There are usually several prayers offered throughout each service. These prayers may address specific needs of the sick and those in need or may simply request God's blessings. This is commanded of us in 2 Timothy 2: 1-2, which says, "{1} First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, {2} for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way".
     

  • Communion (The Lord's Supper). If you visit us on a Sunday morning, you will witness us partaking of The Lord's Supper, which we do every Sunday in accordance with Biblical teaching (Acts 20: 7). This memorial meal is for the purpose of remembering Jesus' sacrifice upon the cross. The unleavened bread symbolizes Jesus' purity and physical suffering. The "fruit of the vine" (grape juice) symbolizes the blood he shed upon the cross.
     

  • The Offering. You will also see us collect a weekly financial offering in accordance with 1 Corinthians 16: 1-2. As our guest, you are not expected to make a donation.
     

  • Preaching. Each service a sermon is presented by our minister. All sermons are Bible-centered and designed to reach down to "where we live" and make practical application of God's Word. Each sermon usually lasts around thirty minutes.
     

  • Invitation. At the close of the sermon, the minister will invite to come forward all of those present who desire to commit their lives to Christ or request prayers of support.
