We believe that the members of the congregation assemble to worship God (Hebrews 10:26) and to encourage one another (Hebrews 10:25). We perform our spiritual act of worship by offering ourselves as living sacrifices (Romans 12:1). Together we are a whole (1 Peter 2:5) and each of us contributes our talents, time and energy to the work of the congregation (Romans 12:4-12). We believe that each member is responsible and is to be significantly involved in the work of the Church, which includes evangelism (Matthew 28:18-20), edification (Romans 14:19), and benevolence (Galatians 6:10). We believe the congregation functions as one body by each member complementing the other members (1 Corinthians 12:12).
We believe that the congregation assembles on the first day of the week to praise the Lord. These assemblies are characterized by specific activities led by the men of the congregation including a cappella music (Colossians 3:16), the Lord’s Supper (Corinthians 11:23-25), prayer (Colossians 4:2), scripture reading (2 Timothy 3:16-17), teaching (Matthew 28:20), edification (Hebrews 10:24), and giving to support the work of the church (1 Corinthians 16:1-22, Corinthians 8:1-4).Back to “What We Teach and Believe”
