Who We Are

Our services are simple with no surprises. Although we sing, pray, read and study the Bible any day of the week, we celebrate the Lord's Supper (Communion) every Sunday, the day Jesus came back to life.

We have "Pew Packers" for children in the front pews before the adult worship period begins. The children get a brief Bible story and single songs. Often the adults sitting behind them join in with their singing.

We do not get involved in emotionalism. We love God and each other with our heart and head both. So Bible study is emphasized. Questions are welcome. We feel the Apostles Peter or John or Paul or any first-century Christian would feel comfortable and at home in our worship services.

We reach out to others, both our community with clothing giveaways, and worldwide. We give away free Bibles in Arabic and are involved in evangelizing the Muslim world. We are also involved in mission work in Central America and some parts of the northern US. We also give periodic help to emergency work in areas hit by hurricanes, floods, fires, etc.

We have a website that is read all over the world. It includes Bible studies, archaeology, short articles, the weekly bulletin, foreign mission reports and so on. There is a special section in it comparing passages in the Muslim Quran with passages in the Christian Bible on the same subjects in both English and Arabic.

A 100-year history of our congregation will be available soon. It is entitled "Up from the Desert: The City and the Church." Our congregation grew along with Casa Grande back with the downtown was only one block of shacks facing a railroad servicing miners and cattlemen.

Our Services

What are services like?
An Explanation of Our Worship Service ANNOUNCEMENTS: We encourage our members to be of assistance to the sick, bereaved, shut ins, new babies, etc. Our announcements are to make everyone aware of them. SINGING: God required a choir and specific instruments in Old Test- ament times (I Chronicles 25:6). But the Old Law was nailed to the cross (Colossians 2:14), and God did not require them in the New Testament church. You will be delighted by our congregational a cappella singing. PRAYING: Members and visitors are encouraged to write down their prayer requests and thanksgivings and give to one of the men. These people will be prayed for during our service and in private. LORD’S SUPPER/COMMUNION: You will be pleased to learn that we celebrate what the Christian world calls Easter every Sunday as did first-century Christians (Acts 20:7). COLLECTION: The Old Testament required tithing, but since the Old Law was nailed to the cross (Colossians 2:14), members give as they purpose in their heart (I Corinthians 16:1). Visitors need not participate. BIBLE READING: There are so many confusing denominations, we go directly to the Bible, God’s Words, to learn how God himself wants us to live and worship, not how we want to. There are several translations from the original Hebrew and Greek, so what is read may not be word for word the same as your translation, but the meaning is the same. PREACHING: We encourage you to take notes to the preaching. Then go home and check it out. If you have questions, doubts or challenges about what he said, our preacher urges you to call him. INVITATION: Some denominations use the term “altar call.” People are encouraged to go to the front during an invitation song and request prayers of the church or to be baptized. BAPTISM: In the event there is a baptism, you will see that it is by immersion in imitation of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus (Romans 6:1-6). It is for “forgiveness of sins” (Acts 2:38 and 22:16) and to “put on Christ” (Galatians 3:26), for “even so does baptism now save us” (I Peter 3:21). It is an exciting and moving time for everyone.

What is the community like?
We have a pictorial directory to help us get to know each other and be able to contact each other easily. We have three generations represented in our congregation. There is a potluck once a month and sometimes more often. VBS in the summer is an outreach to our community and always highly successful. We are divided into groups so that everyone can be contacted regarding helping with funerals, weddings, etc.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You are welcome to come by or even call and ask whatever you like about your struggle with faith. No question is too trite or too complicated. When you visit our service, you will be welcomed warmly but not pressured to do anything. You are welcome to just sit in the back and observe if you like. You will be given the week's bulletin, and we have a tract rack for you to select additional topics to read about. If you do not have a Bible, tell us, and we will give you one. If you would like a private Bible study in your home or at our building on any subject, we are here for you. You will find that many in our congregation were members of a denomination, but gave that up to be just Christians.

Leadership View all

Les Bagley

Les does not lead our congregation; all of the men do. However, he does hold the most public position. Les taught at a Christian High School in New Zealand for eleven years. He has been with our congregation since 2009. He knows the original languages of the Bible, both Hebrew and Greek. Yet, his sermons and Bible studies are down to earth and easy to understand. He does not want to be called "Reverend" for this word was used in connection with a verb only one place in the Bible, for Almighty God. Never was it used for humans. He prefers just to be called Les with no title. Lou, his wife, is an accomplished musician, having conducted a symphonic orchestra in New Zealand. She presently gives music lessons.
