We Invite You To Worship God With Us - In Spirit And Truth.
Our Meeting House
We are a local body of Christians, part of the Bride of Christ, the called out, the church for which Christ died - the church of Christ. We endeavor to worship only as according to the pattern set forth in the New Testament, also called the apostles doctrine (Acts 2:42).
Where We Are...
Our Goal Is To Study God's Word And Share It With Our Community.
Our marquee is designed to let the community know what we are studying, to provoke thought and to share the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (for it is truly the power of God unto salvation (cf. Rom. 1:16-17)!
Our goal is to engender an atmosphere of warmth and welcome. As we meet to worship God, we also meet to fellowship with one another - to truly strive for a family, friendly environment. We strive to be a haven from the world - a place where one can heal, where one can grow spiritually and where we can all help one another be faithful to our Creator.
Praising God In Song
As part of our worship to God, we lift our voices to Him in song, according to the Scriptures (cf. Col. 3:16-17).
The Importance Of Prayer
Prayer is vital to the life of human beings. God has placed eternity in our hearts (Eccl. 3:11) and because of that we understand that He exists (Rom. 1:18-21). As part of our relationship with the Father in Jesus Christ, we have been given the avenue of prayer to make our petitions know to God - both for ourselves and for one another.
The Mission Of The Lord's Church
God exists (Heb. 11:6). God desires that all men be saved (1 Tim. 2:1-7). In order for that desire to be fulfilled, He has given the responsibility to the church to carry out the commission of preaching the Gospel to all mankind. It is because of this that we do our best to share the Gospel - the Good News of Jesus Christ - with everyone we can, and in as many ways as we can.
"Then He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, ‘Let those who have charge over the city draw near, each with a deadly weapon in his hand.’ And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-ax in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer's inkhorn at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar. Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub, where it had been, to the threshold of the temple. And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer's inkhorn at his side; ‘Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.’ To the others He said in my hearing, ‘Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity. Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.’ So they began with the elders who were before the temple” (Ezek. 9:1-6).
What you just read is a passage that depicts a scene of judgment. It is one of many the Old Testament contains regarding the children of Israel. The children of Israel, who were the covenant people of God, had gotten away from God to the point that they were committing what the Lord calls “abominations.” Ezekiel is shown by the Lord that all the people, including the elders (who were supposed to be the leaders, the shepherds, of the people) were committing great sin, worshipping the creation and various idols – behind closed doors so as not to be seen. Further, they were doing such things in the temple of God which was at Jerusalem.
Something that is critical to understand is that everything that was written in the covenant between God and man in the days of old was written for our learning: “For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.” One thing we must learn is that those things contained in the Old Testament are shadows of the things to come. Speaking of the state and duration of the Old Testament, Paul says “So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or Sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ (Col. 2:16-17),” later speaking of it in this manner: “the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ.”
