are a church of Christ patterned after the New Testament example of
local churches. We believe in the authoritative word of God and will
provide you with a Bible answer for everything we do in our doctrine
and practice. We exalt Jesus Christ and seek to glorify Him, not
ourselves (Ephesians 3:21). Therefore, our efforts are directed toward
promoting commitment to Christ, not to any man or institution (I
Our assemblies are simple. We sing without use of an instrument (see
Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16; we will be happy to show you why we
use no instrument, if you desire further study on this issue). We pray
(I Timothy 2:1), partake of the Lord's Supper each first day of the
week (I Corinthians 11:23-29; Acts 20:7) and teach from God's word.
All preaching comes from the Bible.
The financial support of this congregation comes from the free-will
offerings of its members made on the first day of the week (I
Corinthians 16:1-2; II Corinthians 8:1-5; 9:6-7). We do not solicit
gifts from those who are not members of this local church.
Contributions are used for the spiritual growth of this church and for
the support of a few men in other areas, such as the Philippines, who
are preaching the gospel. We do not use money collected here for
social programs or the support of any human institution. We believe
the church itself can do all the work God has given it to do. And we
aim to do only the work God has given it to do: teach the gospel,
build up the members, and help needy Christians. All other "good
work" is the responsibility of individual Christians (Titus
2:11-14; James 1:27; Galatians 6:9-10).
