What To Expect At Our Assemblies

Our assembled worship procedures are simple, spiritual and orderly, key-noted by the words of Jesus, who said, “true worshippers shall 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 find its origin in the commands and examples found in the New Testament.

Singing

The entire assembly joins in singing gospel songs. There is no choir or special groups, but simple congregational singing. Since we find no evidence in the New Testament that the early church used mechanical instruments to accompany their singing, we do not use them in our worship (Ephesians 5: 19; Colossians 3: 16).

Prayer

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

The lessons and sermons are designed to teach God’s word so as to encourage compliance by those who listen. It has become increasingly popular for preachers to appear sensational by discussing subjects not revealed in the Bible, advancing fantastic theories and speculations, and even laying claim to miraculous powers. We make no claim for sensationalism-just a period of plain Bible teaching and study.

The Lords 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 (I 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 we have in the example in I Cor. 16: 1-2. Should you attend our Sunday service when the collection basket is passed through the entire assembly you are not expected to give. This is the responsibility of our members, not our guests.

Please come and worship with us.

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 hold that you will come to know us well and count us as your friends. If these matters find favorable response in your heart, we invite you to consider them further. At your request we will gladly study the Bible with you in the privacy of your home, or you may enroll in a free Bible correspondence course which we will be happy to provide. Or if you prefer, we will show you a film strip presentation to further introduce you to the Lord’s church. These services are free and may be had by contacting us via phone as indicated in the title bar of this site. We thank you for allowing us to introduce ourselves, and hope to hear from you soon.
