What To Expect When You Visit With Us

 

Singing

Our singing is strictly a cappella (without instruments). The Scriptures reveal the first century church used unaccompnaied vocal music only in worship. We have no choirs, special singers, or praise groups, just simply congregational a capella singing. The congregation is the choir, the special singers and the praise group! The New Testament teaches that the entire assembly participates, not just a few. There is no authority for mechanical instruments of music (or clapping) in New Testament worship (Ephesians 5: 19; Colossians 3: 16).

 

Prayer

The first century church also devoted themselves to prayer (Acts 2:42). Following their example we, too, offer prayers to God. We are told to pray without ceasing (I Thessalonians 5:17). The congregation is lead in prayer by one of the men in the assembly. We pray, not only to praise and thank God, but also to ask for our needs and the needs of others (I Timothy 2: 1-4).

 

Preaching

We are instructed to preach the Word (2 Timothy 4:2). The Scriptures are designed for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, for the purpose of making an individual complete (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Our sermons teach and encourage compliance to God's word. It has become popular for preachers to appear sensational by discussing subjects not revealed in the Bible, advancing fantastic theories and speculations, even laying claim to miraculous powers. We make no such claim, preaching only the pure gospel of Jesus Christ. 

 

The Lords Supper

Each first day of the week (Sunday) we remember the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Acts 20:7). We proclaim the Lord's death until He comes (I Corinthians 11:26). We partake of the Lord’s Supper each first day of the week (Sunday), only (Acts 20: 7). The Lord's Supper consists of unleavened bread and fruit of the vine, which serve as memorials of the body and blood of Jesus (I Cor. 11:20-36).

 

Giving

The New Testament teaches us that the first century church made monitary contributions every first day of the week or Sunday (1 Cor.16:1-2)This is a freewill offering given by the members of the church. Visitors are not expected to give. We do not take up a collection every time we meet as some churches do, but upon the first day of the week (Sunday). Should you plan to assemble with us on Sundays, and see the collection plate passed through the entire assembly, then please do not feel as if you must give. Giving is the responsibility of our members, not our guests.
