We try our best to do everything that God allows us to do, and nothing that he has not allowed us to do. Sure, we occasionally make mistakes… who doesn’t? However, we take comfort in that, “if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7)
We call ourselves Christians. We are, after all, trying to mimic Christ and obey His teachings. We understand the Bible to be from God, written so that we might have a well lit path to Heaven (1 John 1:7; Psalm 119:105). We take a Bible description for our congregation, the church of Christ (Romans 16:16). This is not the name of our group, but a description of who we are. We are the assembly that Christ purchased with His blood (Acts 20:28); we are owned by Him.
We do not claim to be perfect, we have many shortcomings. But, we have joined hearts and hands in a mutual work of service to be pleasing to God. We are here to help each other make it to Heaven. Do you need help? Come join us at our weekly worship services and Bible studies. Here you will always hear scripture being preached. No opinions or creeds, just the Bible.
What should I expect when I visit the church of Christ?
- Expect to visit a friendly congregation.
- Expect to hear a “Thus saith the Lord” for everything we do in worship and life.
- Expect to see an active congregation, not only locally, but in other nations around the world as well.
- Expect to feel welcome.
Expect Bible-based and Christ-centered sermons and lessons
When you visit, you will meet people striving to live daily for Christ. We emphasis that the Bible is the only map to Heaven. Because of this, the Bible will be the focal point of all Bible classes and sermons (2 Timothy 3:16-17). In fact, members and visitors are urged to bring their own Bibles and follow along – how else are we to sharpen our swords?
Expect a simple Bible-based worship service
- We sing (Ephesians 5:19)
- We study (Acts 2:42)
- We give (1 Corinthians 16:1-2)

*verses referenced are by all means not exhaustive
We understand that the reason for God instituting the church and having preachers preach and teachers teach is to save the lost and to keep the saved saved. With that in mind, we strive to preach sermons on peace, joy, grace, love… but also doctrinal sermons on the correct way to worship, how to be saved, the church and its Biblical description, et cetera. If you are visiting, we want you to take notes and follow along in your Bible. You may even ask for a audio CD or sermon outline too!
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
