Who we are

We are an independent, nondenominational congregation devoted to the practice of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Although we have no creed other than the Bible itself, there are several biblical teachings that will help you understand why we preach and practice the things we do.  

what we believe

This page will tell you about some of our preaching and practice. Many important teachings are not here, but these are given because of questions we are frequently asked. Our only source of authority, however, is God, who has revealed Himself as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and who guides us through His written word. 

  • Jesus is our only Savior

    The teachings of the New Testament are centered on Jesus Christ himself. He is the Son of God, who became a man to lead us back to God and to pay the price for our sins. He is the only way for anyone to be saved. (Acts 4:12)

  • The Plea for Biblical Unity

    From one point of view, we are part of a "Restoration Movement." The driving principle of this movement is to "restore" the teaching and practices given to the first Christians by Christ and His inspired apostles and prophets. 

  • Uniformity in Teaching

    The first churches were all taught the same beliefs and practices, because the teachings all came from the Holy Spirit of God through inspired men. The New Testament writers appealed to all Christians to embrace the same teachings. (1 Corinthians 4:17, 1 John 2:24, 2 Peter 3:2, Jude 3) 

  • The Lord's Supper

    This is the memorial that Jesus established on the evening before His death. New Testament examples show that the Lord's Supper was taken on Sundays. (Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 11:17-26, 1 Corinthians 16:2) Therefore, we offer the communion (as it is also called) in our worship each Sunday. Each partaker must first examine himself. (1 Corinthians 11:27-29) There is no more sacred event in a Christian's life. 

  • Just Singing

    Unaccompanied "a cappella" singing is the only music used in our worship. This has been the practice of most believers during most of Christian history. In fact, the Latin phrase "a cappella" means "like the church." (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 14:15)

  • Biblical Organization

    Jesus is the Head of His one church (Ephesians 1:22, 4:4), ruling through the teachings of the apostles in the New Testament. (Ephesians 2:20)

  • Local Leadership

    In keeping with the New Testament description of the churches established by the apostles, we are led by a group of biblically qualified shepherds (also called elders or bishops) and served by a group of biblically qualified deacons. Evangelists, whom we support, preach and teach the word of God here and around the world. 

  • No Creed but the Bible

    The Bible is the inspired Word of God. In particular, the teachings of the New Testament are the only authority for our faith, our worship, our work together, and our daily lives. (John 14:23) Historically, creeds have been used to define the boundaries of subgroups within Christianity. We appeal for unity based on the teachings of the Bible alone. 

  • How to be Saved and Join the Church

    To become a Christian, one must:

    1. Hear the gospel (Romans 10:17)
    2. Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Acts 8:36-37)
    3. Repent (Luke 13:3-5)
    4. Confess Jesus as Lord (Romans 10:9)
    5. Be baptized for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38)

    As we are saved, we are added to the church (Acts 2:47)

First Time Here?

What to Expect

Welcome! It is our privilege to welcome you to worship God with us. If this is your first time to visit, you may be wondering what is expected from you. Don't worry - simple courtesy is all that you'll need. If you'd like to sing, to pray and to study with us, you are encouraged to do so. But when the collection plate is passed, nothing is expected from our guests. Children are welcomed here, even when they're a little noisy! Children are close to the heart of God. However, we do have an attended nursery and a "cry room" should you need them. The people sitting around you are very much like you. We have jobs, families, responsibilities, problems, and joys. We are here for most of the same reasons that you are: to seek peace, purpose, friendships, and salvation in Christ. Jesus Christ is the reason for all that we do. Our worship is patterned on the teachings and examples of the New Testament. We sing without instruments and take the Lord's Supper every Sunday, because that is what the first churches were taught to do. We are just Christians here. Although many think of churches of Christ as just another denomination among many, that is not what we are trying to be. In fact, churches of Christ have no regional or worldwide headquarters, no hierarchy above the local congregation, and no official teachings or creeds other than the Bible itself. "Church of Christ' is a New Testament name for God's people (Romans 16:16). When we use that name, we simply mean that this congregation belongs to Christ. Please allow us to help you find your way to a saving relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
