We make no claims of perfection, for we are people who fall short of God's standards from time to time. However, we do claim to be the children of God as those who have tried to fulfill the conditions of His mercy. We are individuals who have manifested our complete reliance upon Him for our salvation, have repented of our pursuit of sin, have confessed our faith in Jesus Christ as our Saviour, and have been baptized for the remission of our sins. We have thus made a commitment to God to live faithfully to Him and we try to help one another in that goal.
We believe that the Bible is the revealed Word of God, that it is complete and sufficient both to guide us to eternal salvation and to meet the needs of our lives upon this earth. If you have questions about the Bible, please contact us. We would be happy to study the Bible with you, or supply materials for you to study privately. Again, our aim is merely to spread the Word of God so that souls might be saved.
Who We Are:
- We believe that the church is merely saved people (Acts 2:47). We believe that Jesus, not the church, is the means of salvation (John 3:16), and that God adds us to the body of Christ (the church - Ephesians 1:22; Colossians 1:18) when we are baptized for the remission of our sins (Mark 16:15-16; John 3:3-5; Acts 2:38-47; Romans 6:3-4; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; 1 Peter 3:21).
- This church is completely independent from other churches or religious organizations. As the Bible provides no authority for any organization or religious hierarchy aside from a local body of Christians, we are not a part of any association of churches or any denomination.
- This church has elders (overseers) who assist us in our growth and deacons (servants) who assist the elders in various capacities. (Acts 14:23; Acts 6:1; 1 Tim. 3:1-13). We support the work of an evangelist (2 Timothy 4:1-5; Ephesians 4:11-12) to assist in our knowledge of God’s word.
- This church is a spiritual entity. Our goal is to be the "pillar and support of the truth" in the community and world we live in (1 Timothy 3:15). We are concerned about serving God. Our goals and activities are not political, social, nor recreational. As individuals these are areas wherein we are all naturally involved, but the Bible does not authorize a local church to make such concerns a part of its work.
We are Christians (Acts 11:26), disciples of Jesus Christ (John 8:31; Matthew 16:24). We wear no other name and claim no other affiliation. This group of people (church) belongs to Christ, thus we are a church of Christ (Romans 16:16).
