OUR GOAL

In Christ we are saved from sin to a life of faith and usefulness.
In the church, of which Christ is the head, we have an opportunity to make our life count
for him in Christian service.
By the grace of God, in keeping with the mind and purpose of our Lord,
we commit ourselves to: The King James Bible.

We accept the New Testament as our source of authority on the Christian life.
and will set an example in Christian life and service every day.

My conscience, quickened by the Holy Spirit, gives moral authority; and I will strive to be
wise, fair, loving, and courageous in dealing with current issues.
To pray daily for the pastor, church, community, country, my family and all sinners.


We will strive to work responsibly with all who are members of the church by:
• Attending the services and participating in the work of the church
• Supporting the financial program of the church
• Encouraging the indifferent fellowship and praising the faithful ones.
• Supporting the decisions of the church even when I am in the minority
• Discouraging envy, jealousy, backbiting, and strife
• Refraining from gossip and insisting that the truth be told about all matters
• Guarding sacredly any confidence entrusted to me
• Bearing witness to the unsaved and appealing to them to accept Christ
  and join a Church.


We are neither wise, good, nor strong. But we are not alone. Christ is our companion,
and through His wisdom, mercy, and power we are able to serve.

Everything that we do in our ministry in obedience to the tasks the Lord Jesus left for us to fulfill will be for the Honor and Glory of our Great Almighty God in the name of His beloved Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Anyone who Loves God with all of their heart would want to be Christ-Like all of the time, everyday.

You would want to pray everyday, praise him everyday.  You would control what you said and what you did, all of the time.

OUR DESIRE AND VISION

     The desire and vision we have, is to share the love God has showed us, to see souls come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ; also to have those redeemed ones love, read, and apply the precious Scriptures. This was our goal in the beginning, and by God’s grace and help will remain our goal until we
have hopefully run our race and finished our course.

 

 

 

 The Church

The Word of God throughout the Scriptures reveals that every believer was allowed to participate and function in ministry to one another; this is what Paul taught everywhere in every church (1 Cor. 4:17; 12:4-11; 14:23-33; 15:58). The apostles taught believers by giving them instruction on how to participate and function in ministry, one to another as the church (Rom. 15:14, Eph. 5:15-21; Col. 3: 16-17; 1Thess. 4:19; 5:14; Heb. 3:12-13; 6:10; 10:19-25; James 5:19-20; 1 Peter 2:5, 9; 4:7-11; Rev. 1:5-6). Jesus taught his apostles and disciples to meet in houses (Matt. 10:5-15; 18:20; Luke 9:2-6; 10:1-12). The practice of meeting in homes or houses of believers continued for about the first 300 years of the Church’s existence, until the first buildings were built during the reign of the Roman Emperor Constantine (Acts 16:15, 40; 28:30-31; Rom. 16:5; 1 Cor. 16:19; Col. 4:15; Phm. 1:2). The Emperor Constantine was born around 272-285 A.D. and lived until the time of his death in 337 A.D.

Over time departures from the faith and traditions of the apostles began to take place, just as the apostle Paul had warned the elders in Ephesus (Acts 20:17, 29-32). The new buildings built for the church [the body of Christ] to use as a meeting place were designed for a speaker/audience setting. The speaker/audience method of meeting transformed an every believer participating and functioning church into an audience of pastor-dependent, passive spectators. This method of meeting made for an easier transition and departure from an every believer participating and functioning church, as the apostles taught the believers, to a single bishop headship lording over the household of God.

When the Emperor Constantine ended the persecution of Christians, it actually became advantageous and beneficial to be a believer. Constantine began to make Christianity the most popular religion and packed it with benefits, making it the “in thing” at the time. It could even lead to a permanent income with positions of power, rank, respect, and authority over believers. Under the Emperor Constantine the Christian clergy began to receive an annual income and in time they also received tax exempt status. Those in the clergy became the elite class receiving preferential treatment; the clergy eventually received the same respect, benefits, privileges, and entitlements as the Roman officials. All of the benefits and perks of being a Christian, especially being a member of the clergy, led to the popularity of Christianity.

Christianity rapidly grew in numbers as many unsaved and unrepentant people began to enter into the church to become members for only its privileges.

The increase of unsaved and unrepentant people in the Church led to a carnal and worldly Church, devoid of an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and His power. The result of the carnal church was a lifeless and dead church, lacking the power of the Holy Spirit to transform the hearts and lives of men (2 Tim. 3:5). Eventually the Catholic Church’s structure became an institutional organization in nature, eliminating the priesthood of all believers, and exercised power and control over the family of God.

The Catholic Church also departed from the practice of willful, cheerful spontaneous giving, making tithing a requirement to support the paid clergy. The Catholic Church documents its own departure from the apostles' doctrine. The Catholic Encyclopedia 1912 edition states the following concerning tithing:

Meeting in the homes of believers and returning to the apostles’ faith, doctrine, and practices would transform the church today as we know it. The return of believers meeting in homes would support, encourage, and enable every believer to participate and function in ministry as the apostles taught. When every believer participates and functions in ministry to one another, it removes the hierarchal system of positions (Matt. 23:8-12). Meeting in house churches also eliminates the need to require believers to tithe to provide for building expenses and salaries for paid ministry. This would enable believers to give freely and willingly to support and ensure equality among believers and make sure basic necessities were met for all believers. Believers meeting in homes are also known as house churches, organic church and simple churches.

Through our lack of studying the Word ourselves, we have lost our foundational apostolic teachings. The Church [the body of Christ] has lost sight of the simplicity in Christ to love God and our neighbors as ourselves. If we truly lived to love one another and serve one another, there would be no sin in the Church. There would be no fornication, adultery, jealousy, envy, covetousness, hate, domestic abuse, or divorces, no need for our denominational or church polity, or selfish ambition pursuing hierarchal positions or titles. The apostle Paul simplified our relationship with God and one another in Galatians 5:13-14 saying, “For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love sever one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
