people hesitate to come and worship due to being unsure of just what to
expect, or feeling that they are out of place. We want you to know what to expect and
invite you to worship and study the word of God with us.
are conducted in a quiet and reverential manner. In Hebrews 12:28 we
find, "Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be
shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an
acceptable service with reverence and awe." Our services are
meant to praise God and draw worshipers closer to God and to strengthen and
encouragement one another during our time together.
services are completely based on what we find recorded in the New Testament.
We partake of the Lord's Supper each Sunday, the first day of the week,
to honor and commemorate the sacrifice Christ made on behalf of His
people for all time. ( Acts 20:7 ) We offer prayers to God
through Christ, listen to the word of God spoken, give as we have been
prospered, and sing with our hearts as a congregation. ( I Cor 16:2
& Ephesians 5:19 )
Jesus taught that "...an hour is
coming, and now is, when true worshipers shall worship the Father in
spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.
God is spirit; and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and
( John 4:23-24 ). We want to be true to God and His Word.
authority is Jesus Christ ( Colossians 1:18 ) and we show our love to Jesus
by doing His will. In all things we do what God has commanded us through
Christ ( Colossians 3:17). Therefore the Bible is our ONLY guide.
different teachings and divisions we see in the religious world today is very
different from the unity and oneness taught by Christ and the New Testament writers
( John 17:17-21; I Corinthians 1:10 ). Man has placed many personal
beliefs and ideas into practice that distort the purity and doctrine that was taught
by our Lord. Divisions are not pleasing to God so we have no
denominational name or creed. We are Christians only.
( I Peter 4:16 )
Christian in the New Testament is one who is following Christ only.
Jesus built His church, His body, and He is the head ( Ephesians 1:22-23
). The only way one enters the body today is the same way it was
entered in the first century. Read Acts 2 and find out how those 3,000
became Christians. Many people today rejoice when they find a group of
people in their community is like the congregations mentioned in the
Bible. Our plea is for truth and simply following the teachings
visit with us will be a joyful experience for us and we hope for you
too. We do not single out people from the pulpit nor ask you to do
anything other than listen to the word of God. There are Bibles provided
in each of the pews, if you do not have one, so that you may follow
along as the word of God is preached and taught. We have a
friendly group of members of the Lord's body, as that should be the
trait of each one of God's children, and we encourage you to give us the opportunity to get to
meet you after the services. Many will welcome you and encourage
you to return to be with us again.

available that will allow you to

to assist you in obtaining a unit for use.

We are certain that you will not regret your visit with us, and we will be
encouraged by your presence.
Bible courses available for those who are interested in further personal
study. We also encourage you that if you have ANY question about our
worship or the Bible, please feel free to ask us! Being a Bible
reading congregation, we count it a joy to help others find the truth
about our Lord and God.
we truly hope you will accept our invitation to meet with us. It will be
our pleasure and we believe you will be blessed in your desire to know
more about the Lord.
take a lot of chances in life. Many live carefree and reckless with
little or no concern while others live in fear hoping the worst never
happens. But of all things, we cannot afford to take chances about our
eternal destiny. Just think about it, eternity. And yet for something so
serious, every time we turn around, different things are being said
about our eternal salvation. It gets confusing as to what one should
believe. The end result is we get tired of all the religious bombardment
and decide to go at it alone, "taking a chance" that God will
be merciful. The problem is so many have added their own
"religious" ideas to God's word or they have distorted the
facts. There is one thing for certain; people will perish without the
truth and a love for the truth ( II Thessalonians 2:10-12 ). And that's
our concern! We need truth as defined by God in the Bible. Maybe we need
to ask ourselves two questions:
How many different truths did Jesus teach in the first century?
Did He teach His disciples they could teach anything they wanted? Or did
He teach them they could vary the teachings, if needed?
Paul said he taught the same thing
everywhere he went ( I Corinthians 4:17 ). How did we get today where we
have over 600 varied teachings? We realize we do not know everything and
never will, but we need to be certain about our eternal destiny and that
only comes through truth ( John 8:31-32 ). So we want to encourage you to
be a seeker of truth according to the word of God. We want to encourage
you to deal honestly with the word and be willing to change where change
needs to be made. The Bible tells us more noble minded people are those
who do not blindly follow what someone says, but searches out the things
spoken to make sure it's right ( Acts 17:10-11 ). Come join us anytime.
You won't find us perfect, but you will find us loving truth and holding
to what's right to be the best that we can.
