About Us


Who We Are

We are simply CHRISTIANS - A name adopted by disciples of Jesus in the New Testament (Acts 11:26)

We are TRYING to follow Jesus.  We often fail.  We are not hypocrites; we’re just human.  

We are a church family that acknowledges that each of us has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.  (Rom. 3:23).


We understand that the wages of sin is death (Rom. 6:23), and that we need the salvation that only comes through Jesus (Acts 4:12), who died in our place.  

We try to help and encourage one another along the journey to eternity so that none of us grows weary and loses heart. (Heb. 12:3)

We strive to do Bible things in Bible ways.  


We follow the pattern of the 1st Century church, as endorsed by the Apostles.  


We assemble every first day of the week (Sunday), and:


We partake of the Lord’s Supper every Sunday, consisting of unleavened bread and grape juice, representing the body and blood of Jesus, in remembrance of Him. (Acts 20:7; I Cor. 11:24-25)


We offer praise to God and edify one another in song. (Colossians 3:16). We do not use musical instruments in our worship services because we find no New Testament example or authority to use them.  


We offer prayers of supplication and thanksgiving. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

We listen to sermons that educate us about Gods Word and Will, and build our Faith. (Rom. 10:17) 


We take up a freewill offering so members can give as they have prospered and purposed in their hearts (1 Corinthians 16:1-2; 2 Corinthians 9:7).  Our visitors should not feel under any obligation to contribute.

What is the "church of Christ"?

“church of Christ" is a description, not a name.  It was used by the Apostle Paul in his letter to the Romans to refer to groups of Christians: "All the churches of Christ greet you.” (Romans 16:16)

How do you become a member of the church of Christ? 

God adds people to the church.  - "The Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved." (Acts 2:47)

How were they being saved?  

The simple answer is: the same way people are saved today.  


They HEAR the gospel of Jesus Christ (Romans 10:17), BELIEVE that Jesus is God’s Son, that he was born of a virgin, lived a perfect and sinless life, died a sacrificial and atoning death on the cross, was buried, rose from the dead, and ascended to heaven.  (2 Corinthians 5:21), REPENT of and turn away from sin (Acts 3:19),  CONFESS that Jesus is Lord (Romans 10:9-10), and are BAPTIZED (immersed in water) for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38). 

How are the churches of Christ organized? 

Jesus is the head of the church (Eph. 5:23; Colossians 1:18) and has all authority over it (Matthew 28:18-20; Ephesians 1:20-23).


Christians are referred to as the body of Christ (Col. 1:24), and are to be in subjection to Christ as the head of the body (Eph. 5:24). 

God has also given us a pattern of leadership for the churches of Christ, consisting of Elders and Deacons.    


Elders are charged with shepherding the church.  


"Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood." (Acts 20:28)

"Therefore, I exhort the elders among you, as your fellow elder and witness of the sufferings of Christ, and a partaker also of the glory that is to be revealed,shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness” (I Peter 5:1-2)


We are given qualifications for Elders by the Apostle Paul in his letters to Timothy and Titus:

"It is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office of overseer, it is a fine work he desires to do. 2 An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money. 4 He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity 5 (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?), 6 and not a new convert, so that he will not become conceited and fall into the condemnation incurred by the devil. 7 And he must have a good reputation with those outside the church, so that he will not fall into reproach and the snare of the devil." (I Tim. 3:1-7)

"For this reason I left you in Crete, that you would set in order what remains and appoint elders in every city as I directed you, 6 namely, if any man is above reproach, the husband of one wife, having children who believe, not accused of dissipation or rebellion. 7 For the overseer must be above reproach as God’s steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not fond of sordid gain, 8 but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, just, devout, self-controlled, 9 holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict." (Titus 1:5-8)

We are also given qualifications for Deacons by the Apostle Paul in his letter to Timothy:

"Deacons likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued, or addicted to much wine or fond of sordid gain, 9 but holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 These men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach. 11 Women must likewise be dignified, not malicious gossips, but temperate, faithful in all things. 12 Deacons must be husbands of only one wife, and good managers of their children and their own households.13 For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a high standing and great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus." (I Tim. 3:8-13)

Although we are not given the duties of Deacons along with their qualifications in Paul’s letter to Timothy, it seems clear that the seven men appointed to minister to the needs of the saints in Acts 6:3 were Deacons:

"Now at this time while the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint arose on the part of the Hellenistic Jews against the native Hebrews, because their widows were being overlooked in the daily serving of food. 2 So the twelve summoned the congregation of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable for us to neglect the word of God in order to serve tables. 3 Therefore, brethren, select from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. 4 But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” 5 The statement found approval with the whole congregation; and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch.” (Acts 6:1-5)
