Who We Are

We are a family focusing on...

FAITH…in God, the Holy Scriptures as His word, Jesus Christ as Lord and Redeemer, and the transforming power of His Holy Spirit.

PROCLAMATION…of the redemptive love and grace of God demonstrated in the cross of Jesus, and His will for those who want to know Him.

HOLINESS…in life style as we promote renewal of the mind and heart to reflect the image of Christ.

WORSHIP…that is biblical, celebrative, simple, and meaningful as it exalts God our Father and Christ our Savior in the power of the Holy Spirit.

COMPASSION…to meet the physical and spiritual deficiencies in our community. We believe that the church of Christ must have the heart of Christ.

What is the community like?
What kind of people make up the body of Christ here at Brooks Ave.? Pretty much the entire spectrum, as in any group. We’re a diverse group of people who are just Christ followers. We are married, divorced, remarried, widowed, single parents or just single. We are young, old, and in between; some of us are very traditional while others are not. We love to worship with our minds and hearts centered on Christ our brother and God our Father. The Spirit enraptures some of us more and gives a quiet peace to others. You will find people of various races from all over America and the world. You get the picture. We’re a diverse group, coming from varied backgrounds and at different stages of knowledge and spiritual growth. We don’t know everything. We don’t do everything right. We haven’t arrived—we’re just on the journey...together. Despite our differences—culturally and spiritually—we were not brought together by any illusion of our perfection or righteousness. We were brought together by our recognition that we are sinners in need of the cleansing blood of Jesus (Mark 2:17; Romans 5:6-9; Ephesians 1:7; I John 1:7). That’s the reason we can worship together, stick together, be a family and, with God’s help, accomplish some things that make a difference in our community and our world. We aren’t perfect, but, bottom line, you will find people who love Jesus and honor the Scriptures. At Brooks Avenue Church if Christ there’s a place for you!
