Our Services

What are services like?
One of the things people most frequently notice about churches of Christ is that we sing without the use of mechanical instruments of music – a cappella, "in the style of the chapel," singing is the only music used in our worship. Simply stated, here is the reason: we are seeking to worship according to the instructions of the New Testament. The New Testament leaves instrumental music out. Therefore, we believe it right and safe to leave it out, too. If we used the mechanical instrument we would do so without New Testament authority.

What is the community like?
We at the church of Christ worship our God according to the Bible only. We don’t try to entertain each other so you will find no grand piano, organ, band or glamour in the worship assemblies. What you will find is worship to God taken directly from His word with no addition or subtraction, (Revelation 22:18-19). The church of Christ has no creed book; we have only the Bible, the word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). God asks for worship on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:1-2). We try with all our hearts to worship God as the early New Testament church was instructed in scripture. We strive to be the church as found in the New Testament (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 1:22-23, 4:4; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13). We seek God’s truth without regard to what man wants or tradition dictates.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Churches of Christ do not speak of membership in terms of a formula that must be followed for approved acceptance into the church. The New Testament gives certain steps that were taken by people in that day to become Christians. When a person became a Christian, automatically they became a member of the church. The same is true in churches of Christ today. There is no separate set of rules or ceremonies that one must follow to be inducted into the church. When one becomes a Christian, at the same time, they become a member of the church. No further steps are required to qualify for church membership. On the first day of the church’s existence those who repented and were baptized were saved (Acts 2:38). And from that day forward all those who were saved were added to the church (Acts 2:47). According to Acts 2:37, it is God who does the adding. Therefore, in seeking to follow this pattern, we neither vote nor force people into the church through a required series of studies. We have no right to demand anything beyond their obedient submission to the Savior. The conditions of pardon which are taught in the New Testament are: One must hear the gospel, for “faith comes by hearing the word of God” (Romans 10:17). One must believe, for “without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6) One must repent of past sins, for God “commands all men, everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30). One must confess Jesus as Lord, for He said, “He that confesses me before men, him will I also confess before my father who is in Heaven” (Matthew 10:32). One must be baptized for the remission of sins, for Peter said “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins…” (Acts 2:38). And one must live a faithful life, for it is said, “…Be faithful until death, and I will give you a crown of life.” (Revelation 2:10).
