Monterey Shore Church of Christ is located in Palm Desert California. We have an air-conditioned building with several rooms for Bible classes, but there is no kitchen, no banquet hall, no gymnasium, or party room.
Perhaps you are wondering what kind of church is this, or what the church offers the community. Quite simply, we are a church that follows after the pattern of the New Testament. We are not a social club, nor a civic organization, nor a political forum, nor a welfare institution. While the influence of the church and its members are felt in all these areas, the church, itself, is none of these things. The church is a spiritual institution, which administers to the spiritual needs of its members and the community.
The church founded by Jesus Christ fulfills a need that no human institution could possibly perform. We deplore the fact that so many religious organizations have smothered the true purpose of the Lord's church beneath civic, social, and domestic affairs.
What this congregation of the Lord's people specializes in is in being a church as defined in the New Testament. Our primary concern is with the spiritual needs of men and women -- their need for God, for forgiveness of sins, for genuine God-pleasing worship, for pure lives that live in accordance with God's Word.
Come and visit us soon. We invite you to make an honest investigation of Christ's church in this community. We welcome questions concerning the Bible, which we will try to answer in accordance to God's Holy Word (I Peter 4:11).
Enjoy the day the Lord has given us,
The Saints at Monterey Shore
