Who We Are
We are a church of Christ patterned after the New Testament example of local churches.
We believe in the authoritative word of God and will provide a Bible answer for everything we do in doctrine and practice.
We exalt Jesus Christ and seek to glorify Him, not ourselves (Ephesians 3:21). Therefore, our efforts are directed toward promoting commitment to Christ, not to any man or institution (1 Corinthians 2:5)
Our assemblies are simple. We pray (1 Timothy 2:1). We sing without the use of instruments (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16). We partake of the Lord’s Supper using unleavened bread and fruit of the vine each first day of the week (1 Corinthians 11:23-29; Acts 20:7), And, we teach from God’s word. All preaching and teaching comes from the Bible. We would be happy to study any of these things with you if you wonder why we worship the way we do.
The financial support of our congregation comes from the free-will offerings of its members made on the first day of the week (1 Corinthians 16:1-2; 2 Corinthians 8:1-5; 9:6-7). We do not solicit gifts from those who are not members. Contributions are used for the spiritual growth of this church and for the support of men who are preaching the gospel in other areas, such as Ohio, Kentucky, and the Republic of South Africa. We do not use money collected here for social programs or the support of any human institution.
We believe the church can do all of the work God has given it to do: teach the gospel, build up the members, and help needy Christians. All other “good works” are the responsibility of individual Christians (Titus 2:11-14; James 1:27; Galatians 6:9-10).
We currently have approximately 175 members, 2 full time preachers, 3 elders and 8 deacons. We have approximately 40 children between the ages of 1 month and 18 years of age with classes for all ages. Adults typically have 2 classes from which to choose.
We gather together on Sunday weekly for our Bible study classes at 9:30 am, our morning worship at 10:20 am, and for additional worship at 6:00 pm. We also meet weekly on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm. We welcome you to visit with us whenever you are able.
