We are Christians only (Acts 11:26). The Bible is our sole authority, and we teach only the Bible in our classes and from our pulpit each time we assemble. Our aim is to be sure that we can provide authority from the New Testament of Jesus Christ for all that we do (1 Cor. 4:6; Rev. 22:18-19).
We assemble on the first day of every week to worship God as the first century Christians did. (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2). In our worship we seek to follow the pattern which the Lord gave to his church through the apostles (Acts 2:42). That is why in our worship you will find the following:
"And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers" (Acts 2:42).
"Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord" (Ephesians 5:19). Since there is no authority in the New Testament for the church to add instrumental music to our worship, our singing is a cappella (without instrumental accompaniment).
The Lord's Supper
The Lord's Supper: Each Sunday, we assemble as the Lord's church in keeping with the apostolic example to take bread and fruit of the vine in remembrance of the sacrifice of our Savior, Jesus Christ. "And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight" (Acts 20:7). In our partaking of the Lord's Supper we remember the Lord's death until He comes again (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
"Now concerning the collection for the saints...Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God has prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come" (1 Corinthians 16:1,2). If you are visiting with us, please do not feel obligated to give when the collection plate is passed. We take a collection only on Sunday, and the obligation to give is limited to the members.
Bible study: We engage in regular Bible study through preaching, Bible reading, and direct teaching (2 Timothy 4:1,2). In addition, the we have set aside a time on Sunday morning and Wednesday evenings for Bible study. We have classes for all ages. As the early church did, we proclaim the scriptures--the inspired, infallible word of the Living God--and make known the unsearchable riches of the gospel of Jesus Christ found in the Bible. "Preach the word" (2 Timothy 4:2).
