About Us (continued)

The entire assembly joins in singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. There is no choir or special groups, but simple congregational singing. We find no evidence in the New Testament that the early church used mechanical instruments to accompany their singing, therefore we do not use them in our worship either (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16).

The congregation is led in prayer by men in the assembly. We pray, not only to praise and thank God, but also to ask for our needs and the needs of others (1 Timothy 2:1-4).

The lessons and sermons are designed to teach God's word so as to encourage compliance by those who listen. It has become increasingly popular for preachers to appear sensational, by discussing subjects not revealed in the Bible, and even laying claims to miraculous powers. We make no claim for sensationalism ... just a period of plain Bible teaching and study.

Like the church in the time the New Testament was written, we partake of the Lord's Supper each first day of the week (Acts 20:7). The supper consists of unleavened bread, and fruit of the vine as memorials of the body and blood of Jesus (1 Corinthians 11:20-36).

We do not take up a collection every time we meet, but only on the first day of the week (1 Corinthians 16:1-2). Should you attend our Sunday service, you are not expected to give. This is the responsibility of our members, not our guests.

We are a group of God fearing men and women, young and old, who have formed and constitute a congregation such as those described in the New Testament. We are simply Christians (Acts 11:26; 26:28; 1 Peter 4:15-16), followers of Christ. We comprise a church which is "of Christ" (Romans 16:16).

We do not wear or accept any designations that are not found in the scriptures, and we do not subscribe to any creed drawn up by fallible men. Christ is our only creed, the Bible is our only guide. We are striving to be a church after the pattern found in the New Testament ... in how we become Christians, and how we live as Christians; in what we teach; in the work we do as a church; in the way we are organized.
We are trying to speak where the Bible speaks, and be silent where the Bible is silent, doing Bible things in Bible ways, and to call Bible things by Bible names. We are interested in honoring God, in following Christ, and in learning, doing, and teaching God's word.

We are your neighbors, your fellow-workers, and your fellow-students. We are people saved from sin, who are interested in the salvation of others.

We want heaven to be both our eternal home, and yours.

When you visit our assemblies, you will be received friendly, kindly, and courteously. We believe this to be the natural attitude of those who truly love God and mankind. Though you may at first be among strangers, we hope you will come to know us well, and count us as your friends.
