In the midst of change all around us we use the name “primitive” to identify our sincere effort to maintain the principles of truth and life exhibited in the New Testament.
Though blessed to live in this technological age the inspired word given by God answers the ageless questions of life.
Who We Are
We are a local autonomous community of bible believers. We exist to declare a great God who in His Son the Lord Jesus Christ is greatly involved in our lives now and is our only hope for eternity. Rather than our goodness for God we are trusting in his goodness towards us. Rather than our work for him we have found peace alone in His work for us.
Our security issues, sense of identity, and worth, do not essentially have to do foundationally with our own strength, ability, accomplishment or lack thereof, but have everything to do with Jesus Christ’s strength, ability, and accomplishments in our place and on our behalf. The gospel declares ‘in Christ’ we are delivered, accepted and loved.
What We Are About
We believe that God is on a mission to rescue the broken and recover the lost. The gospel massaged into hearts brings personal conversion, relational peace, and thereby cultural renewal. The gospel is good news providing hope for the hopeless, calm for the restless, and deliverance for the self-destructing. The gospel revives, renews, and restores.
God carries out this glorious work by a community of individuals providing God’s love and care to others. Members of the church of Christ are not consumers but servants declaring, demonstrating, and delivering the liberating power of the gospel to the needs of their neighbors.
What We Believe
We believe Scripture is the inspired word of God and has been preserved in the Old and New Testaments. Properly understood and interpreted it is the supreme and final authority on all matters of which it speaks.
We believe in one Creator Sovereign God, Sustainer of all things existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God’s Son, became flesh through His virgin birth and became true man united in one Person forever. He died on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of his people. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and now intercedes in behalf of his own.
Salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God’s free grace. God credited Christ’s righteousness to his chosen when he declared “it is finished” upon the cross. The Holy Spirit applies the saving work of Christ to his children’s hearts in the life giving work of regeneration. He convicts us of sin, draws us to the Savior, indwells our hearts, guides into truth, and empowers us for service, and gives us hope of heaven.
The church at large is composed of all persons in all ages elect, redeemed, and regenerated. The church finds her yet imperfect local expression in congregation where the Word of God is preached, the ordinances are administered, loving discipline is practiced, and sweet fellowship is maintained.
Jesus Christ will come to earth to consummate history and the eternal plan of God. Heaven and Hell are real places. We await His return when we shall be raised in glorified bodies to behold and be with him forever. “Even so, come, Lord Jesus”. Rev 22:20
