Preaching and Teaching the Word of God:

God’s word is central to our lives as Christians. Following the examples of the Apostles in the New Testament, we take opportunity on the first day of the week to preach and teach the word of God  at each Sunday worship assembly (10:20 a.m.; 5:00 p.m.).

Please bring your own Bible and study with us.

Worship in Song:

When we assemble to worship, we speak “to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in our heart unto God” (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16). Once again, we  follow the example of Jesus and the New Testament instructions (Matthew 26:30, Ephesians 5:19, James 5:13) to blend our voices in songs of praise and devotion to God.

We sing without the use of musical instruments in order to please God by worshiping Him the way He has directed. The passages quoted show us how we should sing, so we lift our voices together in praise to God.

Prayers to God:

In 1Thess 5:17, it tells us to pray. Jesus taught folks to watch and pray, (Mr 13:33). He wants us to talk to him. The apostle Paul wrote, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be make known to God” (Philippians 4:6).

And they were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” (Acts 2:42)

You will find Prayer as a vital part of our worship service.

Communion – The Lord’s Supper:

Jesus, on the night before he was crucified, He instituted “a communion” of the body and blood of Christ (1 Corinthians 10:16), or the “Lord’s Supper” (1 Corinthians 11:20). We follow His example, His apostles and the New Testament Christians (1 Corinthians 11:23-29).

On the first day of the week (Acts 20:7), every Sunday,  we remember Jesus’ death by eating unleavened bread which represents His body crucified on the cross and drink the fruit of the vine (grape juice) which represents His blood shed for the forgiveness of our sins (Matthew 26:26-28).

Partaking of the Lord’s Supper reminds us of the enormous sacrifice He made on the cruel cross and we do proclaim His death until He comes. (1Cor 11:26)

Giving As We Have Prospered:

The apostle Paul wrote this instruction, “Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.” ( 1Co 16:2) Every Sunday, we take time to give money for the work of the church. We consider this an act of our worship, and it reminds us of the rich blessings we have received from God. (James 1:17)

When you visit, please feel free to pass the plate along. This is an opportunity for our members to give back as they have been blessed.

Love each other:

As God’s people we strive to follow His example in the way that He lived. Clearly He demonstrated love, so too, we must demonstrate love in our lives.  “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” Joh 13:34
