We are the church of Christ pattened after the New Testament example of local churches. We believe in the authoritative word of God and will provide you with a Scriptural answer for everything we do in worship and in deed. We exalt Jesus Christ and seek to glorify Him, not ourselves (Epheisans 3:21). Therfore, our efforts are directed toward promoting commitment to Christ, not to any person or institution (1Corinthians 2:5).
Our assemblies are simple. We sing without the use of an instrument (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16); we pray (1Timothy 2:1); we partake of the Lord's Supper each first day of the week (1Corinthians 11:23-29,
Acts 20:7); and we teach from God's word. All teaching and preaching comes from the Bible.
The financial support of this congregation comes from the free-will offerings of its members made on the first day of the week (1Corinthians 16:1-2, 2Corinthians 8:1-5, 9:6-7). We do not solicits gifts of any kind from those who are not members of this local congregation. Contributions are used for the spiritual growth of this congregation. We do not use tbe money collected for social programs or the support of any human institution nor are we involved with either. We believe the church itself can do all the work God has given it to do. And, we aim to do only the work God has given it to do: (1) Teach the Gospe to alll; (2) Build up and Edify the members of the local congregation; (3) Assist needy saints. All the other "good work" is the responsibility of individual Christians (Titus 2:11-14; James 1:27; Galatians 6:9-10).
