At Memorial Church of Christ, we use the Bible as our only guide for our faith and practices. Within the Bible, we find God’s plan for how to live, how to worship, and how to love our fellow man. "All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." 2 Tim. 3:16-17
In fact we know that we are given “everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness”. So we simply seek to study the Bible and apply God’s wisdom to every part of our lives. "His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. 4 By these He has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desires." 2 Pet. 1:3-4
The Memorial church is made up of people simply trying to follow Jesus and His Spirit revealed teachings. We are an independent and undenominational church that follows the New Testament as our only standard of faith and practice. If you are interested in a deeper relationship with Jesus, we would love to open His word with you and learn together how we can best serve Him.
We want you to feel comfortable while you are here. Jesus told His disciples to share His message of love and salvation with others, and we want to encourage you and help you feel empowered to follow Christ. You will find us doing the following things in our worship:
Singing. This is not a "performance" or entertainment, so even if you cannot sing well, the most important aspect is the heartfelt expression of worship towards God. Everyone is encouraged to participate and lift their hearts and voices in praise to God.
Prayer. At various points during the worship, men of the congregation lead us in prayer. Each individual is encouraged to pray along, using the leader's thoughts as the basis of their own prayer to God.
The Lord's Supper. Like the church during the time when the New Testament was written, we participate in observing the Lord's Supper on 'the first day of the week' (Acts 20.7). The supper consists of unleavened bread and fruit of the vine as memorials to the body and blood of Jesus Christ (1Cor. 11.20-34).
Preaching. Each week a speaker makes practical application from God's Word to educate, encourage and some times admonish both Christians and those who have yet to decide to become a disciple.
Giving. Christians are instructed to give as they have been prospered on the first day of the week (1Cor. 16.1-2). Should you visit, we will not ask for your money. This is our responsibility, not yours.
