About Us

We are simply Christians.  As you read in the New Testament about Christians in the first century, you see that those people were the ones that heard, believed and obeyed the Gospel of Christ (Acts 2:41), and the Lord added them to His church once they were saved by His sacrifice (Acts 2:47).  So today, when one hears, believes and obeys the Gospel of Christ (hears the Gospel (Matthew 7:24-25, believes in Jesus Christ as God's Son (John 8:24), repents of sin (Luke 13:5), confesses Christ (Matthew 10:32-33), and is buried by baptism into the death of Christ (Romans 6:3-5) one is raised as a "new creature in Christ",  and is added by the Lord to His church.  That's what we are.

We have no denominational affiliations (Ephesians 4:4).  We are entirely un-denominational in structure, faith and practice.  We are not a part of any inter- or intra- church associations.  We are simply Christians as described in the pages of the New Testament.  Being "in Christ" as to our relationship to Jesus Christ (Galatians 3:26-27), we learn and submit to our Lord's revealed will (Luke 6:46).  Our lives are "none of ours" and "all of His" will (Matthew 26:39).

We worship on the first day of week as the Lord teaches us in the New Testament:  Lord's Supper, giving as prospered by God, praising God in acapella singing, praying to the heavenly Father through Jesus Christ, and teaching from the Word of God (Matthew 26:26-29; 1 Cor 16:1-2; Ephesians 5:19; 1 Cor 14:15; and Acts 20:7).  At times other than the first day of the week, we assemble to sing praises to God, pray to the Father together, and study from God's Word.  We are simply Christians who strive to follow our Lord's teachings to their fullest.

When we have men who meet the Lord's requirements, we appoint them to serve the congregation a elders (overseers, pastors) and deacons.  We believe in the pattern for the organization of the local church as stated in Philippians 1:1:  "the saints in Christ Jesus, with the overseers and deacons".  The relationship of the local church to Jesus Christ is, "Christ being the Head of the church, His body" (Ephesians 1:22-23).  There is no man or group of men on earth who can be rightfully called "Head of the Church".  Only Jesus Christ, as that sole Head, has such preeminence (Colossians 1:18) and authority (Matthew 28:18).  We are simply Christians who serve Jesus Christ.

We learn from the Scriptures that our Lord has given His church work to do (Ephesians 2:10).  That work is in the categories of : Evangelism (Mark 16:15-16), Edification (Ephesians 4:11-16), and Benevolence (Acts 4:32-35).  We do not include what we think as part of the work of the church (Matthew 7:21-23).  We spend no time including the church in "the social gsopel" activities such as sponsoring clubs, having fund raising projects or political activities.   We are simply Christians who desire to serve our Lord and His will, and to allow the church to be the spiritual body the Lord wills it to be (John 18:36; Romans 14:16-18).

If you notice that we are different from other religious bodies, then perhaps you would like to learn more, and even become a part of what we desire and endeavor to be - simply Christians.
