We are a group of baptized believers who pattern our worship
according to the New Testament, and seek biblical authority for all that we
believe and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We do not recognize or
participate in any man-made creeds, disciplines, or religious
traditions (Matthew 15:8-9).
We believe in one Lord, one faith, and one
baptism (Ephesians 4:5) which is the basis for our unity.
The churches of Christ are independent of any denominational structure or
hierarchy; and are governed locally by a group of men appointed as
the congregation, based on the qualifications listed in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus
1. These men act as shepherds or overseers to guide us in our spiritual
lives acting under the authority of Christ as the head of the Church.
Serving under the elders are deacons, teachers, evangelists and members who each use
their spiritual gifts and talents in serving God.
Our ministry is patterned after the example of Christ described in the first
four books of the
New Testament. His ministry was characterized by God's
love and desire to save the entire world (John 3:16), and was made complete in
his death on the cross acting as an atoning sacrifice for our sins (1 John
2:2). We believe that God wants us to take care of the needy
(Matthew 25:35-40), the orphans and widows (James 1:27) and to do good things
for all people (Galatians 6:10). But we understand, that
we are redeemed by Christ's blood (Ephesians 1:7) and are saved
by God's grace and not by our actions (Ephesians 2:8-9).
We believe God has laid out five essentials as requirement for entrance into His
church including hearing the Word, believing in Him, repenting of our sins,
confessing our faith, and being baptized into Him for the fogiveness of our
sins. Click here to read more about what we believe.
