Churches of Christ extend to all a sincere invitation to visit.
You may wonder what to expect.
You may expect to be received with courtesy and friendship. Those who come to worship and learn are honored guests. We want their visit to be comfortable and pleasant, as well as profitable. You will meet people who share your interests regarding careers, family, community, and religion.
You will find a friendly group of people, bound together in Christian love, who are seeking to live and worship by the principles of Jesus. We are the first to confess that we are not perfect, but we are trying to do right. Toward everyone we want to exhibit a sincere spirit of Christian charity and kindness.
You will find worship that is simple, orderly and Scriptural. We believe, as Paul admonished in I Corinthians 14:40, that all things should be done decently and in order. Christ showed that worship must be “in spirit and truth” (John 4:24). You will find, therefore, that the items of worship authorized in the New Testament are things we practice.
Prayer is led by men of the church. The singing is congregational. Giving is free will. The Lord’s Supper is passed to the congregation every Lord’s Day. The sermon is always on a Bible theme, with emphasis on knowing and doing what God teaches in His word.
When you visit the Charlotte Avenue Church of Christ, you will find those who hold no creed but Christ and who follow no book but the Bible. You may find what you have been seeking.
