What We Do

In our collective worship we focus on reproducing the worship of the first century church. We praise the Lord in song (Ephesians 5:19), offer prayers to Him (Acts 2:42), partake of the Lord’s supper (1 Corinthians 11:23-23), give of our means (1 Corinthians 16:1-2), and study God’s word (Acts 20:7). This pattern was established by the disciples and we strive to follow that today.

Additionally, we focus on the special work the Lord has given to his church. While worship is one of these, we are also concerned about edification, evangelism, and benevolence for needy saints. You will notice when you attend that our worship is pointed and focused on the Lord and on building up everyone individually and as a congregation (1 Corinthians 14:26). This work of edification helps strengthen us to reach the lost around us and help our needy brethren. Now, once we reach a certain level of maturity the Lord expects us to be about his business of reaching the lost. We use our collective worship and personal study to help equip every member for this work (Ephesians 4:11-16).

Additionally the Lord wants his saints to love one another and extend a helping hand to them. While we do this to all who have need individually, we only use the churches collective money for those who are in need among the brethren (Acts 11:29).
