We are a collection of congregations of the church of Christ who pattern our worship after
the New Testament example of the church in the first century. We believe in the
authoritative word of God in determining our doctrine and practice.
We do not tie ourselves to any other name but the name of Jesus Christ (Acts 4:10-12).
Jesus Christ said, "Upon this rock (that is, the fact that He is the Son of God) I will build my
church" (Matt. 16:18). Since the church belongs to Him, shouldn't it bear His name, as well?
The churches certainly did so in the first century. "The churches of Christ salute you."
Churches of Christ - One Cup
You will find each of the following activities in our worship each first day of the week:
Singing. No man-made instruments of music are used. As Christians, we are commanded
to sing and make melody in our heart (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16). We feel it would be an addition
to His will if we used instrumental instruments of music in the worship.
Teaching. The teaching is designed to instruct and encourage all of us in the way of
righteousness (Acts 5:42; 2 Tim. 2:2).
The Lord's Supper. The communion is observed as it was when our Lord introduced it.
The person attending the Lord's Table will give thanks for the bread, break it as the Lord
did, and pass it on to the assembly to be eaten. This is done in remembrance of our Lord's
broken body (Acts 20:7; 1 Cor. 11:23-24). The person attending the Lord's Table will also
give thanks for the cup (singular) of the fruit of the vine and pass it on to the assembly to
drink from. This is done in remembrance of our Lord's shed blood.
Contribution. The collection is taken only on Sunday worship service Each member
gives as he purposes in his heart (1 Cor. 16:1-2).
Prayer. The prayers are designed to praise God and communicate our thoughts to Him.
