We would love to have you worship God with us at our next assembly. You can expect...
- Spirited Worship
- Truthful Teaching
- Loving Fellowship
Our congregational worship is simple, spiritual and orderly, key-noted by the words of Jesus who said, "true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth" (John 4:23-24). Absent is the frenzied emotionalism so common in churches today. Each element of worship finds its origin in the commands and examples found in the New Testament.
The entire assembly joins in singing gospel songs. There is not choir or special groups, but simple congregational singing. Since we find no authority in the New Testament for mechanical instruments of music in worship, we do not use them in our worship (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16).
Men in the assembly lead the congregation in prayers. We pray, not only to praise and thank God, but also to ask for our needs and the needs of others (1 Tim. 2:1-4).
The sermons are designed to teach God's word so as to encourage compliance by those who listen. The men who have this responsibility are charged to "preach the word" whether the truth is well received, or not (2 Tim. 4:1-4). Therefore, the Bible will be at the center of all of our teaching and preaching.
The Lord's Supper
Like the church in the time the New Testament was written, we partake of the Lord's Supper each first day of the week (Acts 20:7). The supper consists of unleavened bread and fruit of the vine as memorials of the body and blood of Jesus (1 Cor. 11:20-36).
Giving as we prosper
We do not take up a collection every time we meet, but only on the first day of the week as taught in the New Testament (1 Cor. 16:1-2). Should you attend our Sunday service when the collection is taken, you are not expected to give. This is a responsibility of our members, not our guests.
When you visit our assemblies, you will be received friendly, kindly and courteously. We believe this to be the natural attitude of those who truly love God and mankind. Though you may at first be among strangers, we hope that you will come to know us well and count us as your friends.
