We call Bible things by Bible names and do Bible things in Bible ways.
The Bible is God’s verbally inspired word and that is what we preach.

If plain Bible preaching is what you long for, you’ll want to visit us.

What To Expect When You

Visit With Us

Our commitment is to follow the New Testament pattern for the church, endeavoring to model ourselves after the church we read about in the New Testament – being what they were, saying what they said, doing what they did, getting what they got – no more, no less, no other. Our plea is to speak where the Bible speaks and remain silent where it is silent. The New Testament church assembled every first day of the week (Sunday) to worship God (Acts 20:7) and so do we. Likewise, our worship is simple, spiritual, and orderly, “true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth” (John 4: 23-4). Absent is the frenzied emotionalism so common with churches today.

Singing

We sing psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs as directed by the word of God (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16). 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.

Prayer

Under apostolic direction, the first century church also devoted themselves to prayer (Acts 2:42). Following that inspired example we, too, offer prayers to God. We are told to pray without ceasing (I Thess. 5:17). The congregation is led in prayer by one of the men in the assembly as directed by the Scriptures (1 Tim. 2:8). We pray, not only to praise and thank God, but also to ask for our needs and the needs of others (1 Tim. 2: 1-4).

Preaching

We are instructed to preach the Word (2 Tim. 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 Tim. 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. We preach only the pure gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Lord’s 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 (1 Cor. 11:26), by partaking 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 ( Matt. 26:26-29; 1 Cor. 11:20-36).

Giving

The New Testament teaches us that the first century church made monetary 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, please do not feel as if you must give. Giving is the responsibility of our members, not our guests. Nor do we conduct “fund-raising” activities. Such practices are unknown in the Scriptures and are a violation of them.
