worship

Our service gives reverence to God through spiritual songs led by passionate worship leaders. You’ll experience an acapella (singing without use of any music or instruments) worship that is unlike any other. We lift up one another through song as we offer praise to God. Each Sunday, we hear an impactful message to inspire and guide us for the coming week. Along with songs of worship and the message, we also take the time to offer prayer to God, give an offering according to how God has blessed us, and partake in communion (otherwise known as the Lord's Supper). A typical worship service looks like the following:

  • Welcome

  • Announcements

  • Call to Worship

  • Song

  • Communion/Lord’s Suppper

  • Song

  • Offering

  • Scripture Reading

  • Prayer

  • Song

  • Sermon

  • Invitation (to become baptized)

  • Benediction (God’s blessing, read aloud, for the congregation)

  • Closing Prayer

Communion/Lord's supper

     We take the Lord’s Supper every Sunday in remembrance of Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for all of us. At this time in the worship service, we reflect on Christ’s suffering and sacrifice for each of us and all of mankind. The unleavened bread represents His body. The cup or fruit of the vine represents the covenant in His blood and the forgiveness of sins His death provided for us all.

offering

     Offering is a time that our congregation gives a monetary gift to help the congregation sustain its general operating expenses, outreach programs and staff (2 Corinthians 9:6-7). Visitors are not expected to participate in this act of worship as you are our honored guests. All monetary donations are appreciated and will be put to use in the most effective manner possible.

membership

Becoming a member of the Church of Christ

     You are added to the body of Christ, the church of Christ, when you decide to become God’s possession by understanding and obeying the Gospel, also known as the Good News of Jesus Christ, “saves us” (Gal. 3:26-27). It describes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (I Cor. 15:1-4). 

 

To be added to the church of Christ, there are 5 acts to complete:

 

1)   Hear the Gospel (Romans 10:17)

2)   Believe the Gospel (Hebrews 11:6)

3)   Repent of your past sins (Acts 2:38)

4)   Confess Jesus Christ as God’s son (Matthew 10:32)

5)   Be Baptized in water for the remission (washing away) of your sins (Acts 2:38)

 

     Completing these acts means you have become God’s possession and a member of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. You have gained new brothers and sisters in Christ, which means you have the opportunity to grow closer to them as you all grow closer to God.

Water Baptism

     The final step in receiving salvation and being added to the body of Christ is Baptism. The word "baptize" is taken from the Greek word "baptizo" which means “to immerse”.  In addition to the literal meaning of the word, water immersion is practiced because it was the practice of the church in apostolic times and it conforms to the description of baptisms as given by the apostle Paul (Romans 6:3-5) where he speaks of it as a burial and resurrection. Baptism is for those who believe and understand the gospel of Jesus Christ. For those prepared to take this next step, the water is always ready.

our community

     We are the hands and feet of Christ in our community. We love everyone, especially those closest to us. We strive to make every effort to leave a lasting positive footprint, making a real difference in the lives of those we encounter.

     We do our best to live lives that will assist people in establishing a relationship with God.  We worship Him with our whole beings and give ourselves in every way possible to reflect how good it is to be His sons and daughters.
