We are simply Christians, followers of Jesus Christ. We do not subscribe to any creed written by man; the Bible is our only guide. We strive to be a church after the pattern established in the New Testament. We do the things the Christians in the Bible do, and we call things by the names the Bible uses.
We are your neighbors, your co-workers, your schoolmates. We are interested in honoring God, following Christ’s example, and learning the Word of God so that we might spread His good news. We want heaven to be our eternal home, and we want it to be yours, too.
What to Expect When You Visit with Us
You may be hesitant to attend worship services at an unfamiliar place, with people whom you do not know. To help relieve any apprehension you may have, we would like to explain what to expect when you visit us.
A Warm, Friendly Welcome
Many will introduce themselves to you and someone will probably give you a visitor’s card to fill out. We will not call on or embarrass you in any way. We honor visitors as our guests, and do not want to draw undue attention to them so as to make them feel ill-at-ease.
Order and Reverence
We strive to do all things decently and in order, according to the Bible pattern. You will not be confused by any outburst of emotion (1 Corinthians 14:40), nor the chaos that often accompanies some religious services. Rather, you may expect to calmly worship God (though fervently and enthusiastically).
You will observe the service to be biblical and scriptural in nature and practice. We engage in:
- Congregational singing (Ephesians 5:19)
- Prayer, as lead by one of the men of the congregation (Acts 2:42)
- Observing the Lord’s Supper on Sunday (1 Corinthians 11:23-33; Acts 20:7)
- Free will offering of the members of this congregation (2 Corinthians 8:1-8)
- Gospel preaching that is designed to reprove, rebuke, and exhort those who hear (2 Timothy 4:2)
You can expect to have an ear given to you if you believe that the truth has not been spoken or followed. Our endeavor is to worship God “in spirit” and “in truth” (John 4:24), and you will be our best friend if you will point out any error of which we may be guilty. If we concur that we have acted contrary to God’s will, we will repent and follow God.
