Why the Church of Christ is Right For You!

Acquainted with God. In a world with so many gods, are you seeking to find the one true God of heaven?  If so, the church of Christ is precisely for you!  The church of Christ exalts God in all his purity, truth, majesty, power, holiness, grace, faithfulness, and amazing love (Psalm 86:11, 89:14, James 3:17).  If you want to see God in all his beauty, grandeur and excellency, then look no further (Psalm 27:4, 148:13).  Today is the day to get up close and personal with God (2 Cor. 6:2). 

Awareness of Self.  In a world where self-improvement is valued at every turn, are you truly looking to know thyself?  Maybe you are looking to see yourself just like God sees you.  If so, look no further (Phil. 4:13).  God through the Bible will show you your strengths and weaknesses more vividly than you ever imagined (2 Tim. 3:16, Heb. 4:12-13).  No therapist, physician or philosopher can shine the light on your soul like the God of heaven (Is. 55:8-9, Psalm 119:99-100).  Now is the time to let him know you and change you (John 17:3). 

A Passion for Truth and Liberty.   America’s pledge of allegiance ends with the phrase “with liberty and justice for all.”  Truth and liberty are core fibers in the pursuit of progress (John 8:32).   To move forward in God’s eyes one must know what is real and be free from oppressive forces (like sin) that deter one’s quest to know what is most valuable – God and truth (John 17:17).  If you are ready to tap into God’s Divine power, Christ’s church welcomes you (Rom. 1:16, 2 Peter 1:3). 

Letting go of Fear.   Could it be that what you need most lies a few shorts steps beyond your deepest fears of letting God have all of you – all your heart, soul, mind and strength (Luke 10:27)?  The Lord’s church can show you how to fear what matters and free yourself from troubling fears that are of little value in God’s eyes (Matt. 10:28).

Leaving the Rut.  Do you ever feel stuck in a routine or caught in a routine during the daily grind?   Maybe you feel like you rarely get recognition for your hard work.  If so, come visit the church of Christ.  You’ll be refreshed, renewed, and invigorated with relevant worship that applies the Bible to real world issues (Ps. 51:10).  Our Bible study will help you realize that if you labor in the Lord, it is not in vain (1 Cor. 15:58).  Isn’t it time?       

Service that Matters.  Are you ready to leave a lasting impression on this world through works of service that leave a legacy to follow (Rev. 14:13)? Follow Jesus and let him add you to his church (Matt. 20:28, Acts 2:47).   God created man for good works (Eph. 2:10).  Following his example, the church relishes in the joy of giving (Acts 20:35) and serving with all her might (Eccl. 9:10).  

Goodbye to Division.  Perhaps all the religious division bothers you.  Maybe you wonder where all this division comes from.  Maybe you see how senseless it is that beliefs swirl in the religious marketplace and are chosen sometimes buffet style.  The church of Christ was established by Christ (Matt. 16:16-18) and is the first Christian church that finds its beginning in the first century prior to any manmade division (Acts 2, Rom. 16:16). If you hunger to simply wear the name of Christ, welcome home!  What you will find is people striving to be of the same mind, judgment and love, united in one body of one Lord who gave one faith, one hope and one baptism through the one Spirit (1 Cor. 1:10, Phil. 2:2, Eph. 4:4-6). 

Poised for Positive Living.   Living as Christ is always a win-win. You win now and in the life to come (Phil. 1:19-26).  Our world is detached from God.  It shifts through the sands of time and drifts on the waves of a sea of perpetual destructive criticism, negativity, envy, complaining, and pessimism that leads so many to draw in, lose hope and become cynical.  This life that conforms to the world loses now and in the life to come (Eph. 2:1-2, Gal. 5:19-21).  In positive living the church grows through individuals who restrict themselves from every destructive force while simultaneously bearing the fruit of the Spirit in limitless love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal. 5:19-23). 

A Love So Amazing.   How broad is the love of God?  How deep into the abyss does his love descend and how far into the heavens does it fly (Eph. 3:14-19)? To begin to know a love like this, we want to introduce you to the love of Jesus Christ who came not to condemn you but to save you by his precious blood (John 3:16-17, Rom. 5:19).  To know love this amazing is to know God for “God is love” (1 John 4:8).  God wants to perfect his love in open and willing hearts (1 John 4:11-12).  Are you ready?

A Quest for Victory.   Maybe you are ready for triumph.  Maybe you are ready for achievement and a destiny beyond your wildest imagination.  Are you ready to begin the victory that overcomes the world (1 John 5:4)?  Are you ready to begin a life towards eternal victory (1 Cor. 15:54-57)?  If so, now is the time to come to the church of Christ!
