ABOUT US

WHAT WE BELIEVE

There are many religious groups today, and while many are categorized as "denominations," the churches of Christ are not considered as a denomination. 

We worship by using the Bible, and strive to be like the church that Christ initially established in the New Testament. We belong to Christ. We are his people and we are his body. As such, we live and worship according to his teachings.

BAPTISM

We believe that one should hear the word of God, believe and confess that Jesus is the son of God, and be baptized for the forgiveness of one's sins. Baptism is done by full immersion of water and washes you of your sins. Once baptized you become a Christian and a follower of Christ.

SINGING

COMMUNION

Communion is a part of worship that we do in remembrance of Christ sacrifice. We partake of the bread which represents the body of Christ that was sacrificed for our sins. Then we partake of the fruit of the vine that represents the blood shed on the cross. We do this every week on the first day of the week.
