Who are we?

​​

We strive to follow the New Testament as our only guide and authority. Our aim is to speak where the Bible speaks, and to be silent where the Bible is silent. 

The New Testament is our rule of faith and practice in matters regarding the church, its organization, worship, and plan of salvation.

The church of Christ was established on the first Pentecost following the resurrection of Christ, in A.D. 33, in the city of Jerusalem. The word “church” simply means “assembly, congregation, group.”  Therefore, when we speak of the “church of Christ,” we are referring to people who belong to Christ and whose concerns are to fulfill His desires.

The New Testament refers to the church as the church of Christ (Romans 16:16), the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:27) and the church of God (Acts 20:28), as well as other descriptive names.

 

In the New Testament, the disciples “Continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers” (Acts 2:42). The breaking of bread refers to the Lord’s Supper, and the early disciples came together as a church on the first day of the week to partake of it (Acts 20:7). The Christians in the first century gave of their means on the first day of the week in order to support the Lord’s work (1 Corinthians 16:1-2). The Christians in the first century also engaged in congregational singing without the use of mechanical instruments (Ephesians 5:19Colossians 3:16). Thus, you will find us doing the same on every first day of the week. 

The church of Christ is overseen by a plurality of elders (1Timothy 3:1-7Titus 1:5-9Acts 14:23). The church is also served by deacons (1Timothy 3:8-13) who work under the direction of the elders. Preachers (1 Timothy 2:7), ministers (1 Timothy 4:6) and evangelists (2Timothy 4:5) also serve under the direction of the elders.

As a church, our goal is to do only the things we can read about in the New Testament because the New Testament is God's Law for today (Colossians 2:14Hebrews 1:1-2).
