WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN VISITING US

Our Worship is simple and devout
Our services are conducted in a quiet, reverent atmosphere. They are designed to draw the worshipers
closer to God and to provide enduring Spiritual Strength. Our worship consist only of those elements
which the New Testament reveals as having been used as worship by the congregations in the days of the
apostles. We sing and pray, partake of the Lord's supper, have the Word of God preached for our
instruction, and give of our means for the spreading of the Gospel, and caring for the poor. In all
of this we seek to maintain the attitude which Christ taught when He said: "God is a Spirit, and they
that worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth." (John 4:24).

Our Authority is the bible only
Our source of authority is that which is found only in the inspired Scripture. Therefore, we seek to be
governed in all that we do by God's Holy Bible. Since the Scriptures are sufficient for our every need,
(2 Timothy 3:16-17), our preaching and teaching contains only that which is commanded in the Bible.

Our people are Christians only
The division the religious world contains today is far different from the unity enjoyed by the early
Christians, before traditionalism and distinctive names divided them. Believing such division to be
contrary to the Scriptures, we have no Denominational organization or name, doctrine or creed. Following
the teachings of Christ and His apostles, individually we are known as Christians, collective as a
congregation of the church of Christ.

You will never be embarrassed
You visit us as a welcome and respected guest. At the end of the sermon, those wishing to become Christians
are invited to step to the front of the auditorium to let their wishes be known. But never is anyone singled
out for public attention. People are urged from the pulpit to accept the gospel and to yield it's call with deep spiritual conviction.

You will find a friendly spirit
We believe that friendliness is a natural attitude among people who truly love God. Our visitors, who
always receive a warm welcome, appreciate the courtesy and cordiality of these Christians. We truly hope
you will accept our invitation to meet with us soon. You will be benefited by coming.

Another safeguard is to exhort and admonish the listeners To “try the spirits whether they are of
God."(1 John 4: 1). In other words, to read it for themselves like those in Berea who “searched the Scriptures
daily to find out whether these things were so.”(Acts 17:11, NKJV).

Now that you are aware of a church in this century which is built according to the plan of Christ's
original church, why not become a member of it? In becoming a member of it, you will be called upon to do
nothing which you cannot read in the New Testament.
