Our Mighty God

Our God is mighty to save. Isaiah says, “Behold the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that he cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities (evilness or sins) have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear” (Isaiah 59:1-2). Just as it was in Isaiah’s day, it is still just as true today, that your sins will separate you from the Lord.  Jesus talking to His disciples said, “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins” (John 8:24). Only the word of God can save us. Are you interested in knowing what the Bible tell us to do in order to be saved from your sins. Click on the picture above to learn more.

What does the church of Christ Believe?

That's a really good question and we are very glad you are here so that we can give you 

an answer to that. This is a brief summary of what we believe. We hope you find it of 

interest and after reading, seek to look a little deeper into the matter.  

First of all, we believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He established only one 

church in New Testament times and that the membership of this one church was made 

up of Christians only. When you look around today you see a whole host of different 

denominations out there, each one with its own specific belief on doctrinal issues. 

Several of them have differing teachings on what one must do in order to live a pleasing 

life before God and to inherit an eternal home with Him in heaven. These different 

beliefs and teachings are where the concern comes from. Since we cannot come back 

from the grave and get a second chance to live an acceptable life, we believe that being 

on the path that God has prescribed for us is of utmost importance. Our eternal destiny 

depends on whether or not we get it right.  

We recognize the Bible as the inspired, inerrant word of God which is our sole authority 

for what we practice, what we teach and how we live. We believe the old testament was 

the authority for those who lived before Jesus Christ died on the cross. We believe the 

new testament is the authority for those living after the death of Christ and is given by 

inspiration of God and completely furnishes us for every good work.  

The Bible teaches that there is only one body of Christ practicing only one faith. All of 

the various denominations (divisions) with their different beliefs and teachings are not 

found in the New Testament. One cannot turn to the pages of the New Testament and 

read about any of the denominations we see today. They were all established by men 

some time after the writing of the New Testament.  

Jesus taught that the doctrines of men rendered our worship vain so we are deeply 

concerned about all the division we see in the church today. We do not want our 

worship to be vain and we do not want to be guilty of teaching the commandments of 

men to others. We seek to walk a Godly path which must be right and that cannot fail. 

We know that there were Christians who lived in the first century that lived acceptable 

lives before God and were saved. We seek to pattern our lives after their approved 

examples which are recorded for us in scripture by inspiration of God. We believe that if 

we follow the teachings of Jesus as humble and willing servants, believe what the new 

testament Christians believed, do what they did which God approved of, worship how 

they worshipped and live how they lived we will be just what they were; Christians only.  

We do not want to be identified as any denomination. We reject the teachings of men 

which add to or take away from that which can be found in scripture. We do not add 

anything man made to our worship, nor do we take anything approved by God from our 

worship. We do not wish to be called anything that the new testament Christians were 

not called. They wore no man made names, they followed no man made creeds. They 

were simply Christians and they served God according to His will.  

We believe this is the way to seek, find and to walk that path that must be right and 

that cannot fail. We invite you to learn more about us. We feel a great joy in the Lord. It 

is our desire that we could share it with everyone. If you have any further questions or 

need some help that we can offer, please ask and we will help if we can. You are invited 

to read and learn more about the new testament church of Christ.
