Our Beliefs

We believe that the Church of Christ is to be Biblically based. We also believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and is without error. "All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:16-17).


We believe that God brought His plan of redemption through His Son, Jesus Christ (Romans 5:8-9). Jesus Christ came in the flesh, to die on the cross, being our perfect sacrifice (Hebrews 10:10). He then raised from the dead to sit at the right hand of God, as Lord and Savior being our advocate (1 John 2:1-2).


The way that mankind can come in contact with the blood of Christ to have their sins forgiven is by following the plan of redemption.

  1. Hear the Word of God. Meaning not only hearing the Word of God, but instead having an understanding of what is being heard (Acts 8:30-31, Romans 10:14-15).
  2. Believe. Once we have heard the Word of God, we have to believe that it is the inspired Word of God, and that Jesus is the Son of God (John 3:16, 20:31).
  3. True Repentance. When we have heard and believed in the Word, we have to have true repentance. This means that we have Goldy sorrow and have turned from our old ways of living (Luke 24:46-47, Acts 17:30).
  4. Confessing. We are to confess that we believe that Jesus is the Son of the Living God and that He is our Lord and Savior (Matthew 10:32-33).
  5. Baptism. We are then lowered into the watery grave of baptism, being fully immersed, then being raised with the forgiveness of sins and recieve the Holy Spirit to walk in a newness of life (Acts 2:38, Romans 6:4-5).
  6. Walking in a newness of life. Once we have had our sins forgiven we are called to walk in the Light, so that we can keep our salvation (Ephesians 5:8, 1 John 1:7).

We believe in following the examples and commands as they are laid out in the New Testament.

  • Meeting on the first day of the week. Following the New Testament pattern we believe in meeting on Sunday, being the first day of the week (Acts 20:7).
  • Partaking of the Lord's Supper each first day of the week (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
  • Singing without the accompaniment of mechanical instruments (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16).
  • Giving heed to the public reading of Scriptures and to prayer (1 Timothy 2:8, 4:13).
  • Laying aside a part of what we have prospered on the first day of the week (1 Corinthians 16:1-2).

In the eyes of God, man and woman are created equal. We believe that God designated specifc roles to the man and to the woman during worship (1 Corinthains 11:3-4, 14:33-35, 1 Timothy 2:9-15).
