What to Expect at the Longview church of Christ
While we know you have many things that occupy your time, it would be our privilege to have you visit with us at any time you would like to be part of our services. Perhaps you’re wondering what you will find if you come and be part of our assembly. Here’s what we want you to know, and what you will find:
We want you to know you will always be welcome to come visit us (Romans 16:16).
You can expect to worship with Christians who believe in one all knowing, all powerful God who inspired the Bible to provide our standard of right and wrong (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
You will worship with people who believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, rose from the dead, and ascended back to the Father (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
You will find people who believe that saving faith (John 3:36) includes repentance (Luke 13:3, 5), confession (Matthew 10:32-33), and baptism by immersion in water for the forgiveness of sins (1 Peter 3:21).
You will find believers in Christ who desire to worship and share the good news of Jesus until He returns with our heavenly reward (Hebrews 10:24-25).
You will be able to join in singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, without instrumental accompaniment (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16).
You will be part of a body of believers who offer prayers that praise God and allows our needs to be brought to Him (Hebrews 13:15).
We take the Lord’s Supper every Sunday (the first day of the week), with unleavened bread representing the body of Christ, and the fruit of the vine representing His blood. We do this in memory of the Lord’s death until He returns (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
Everyone has the opportunity to give to the Lord as he or she has been prospered (1 Corinthians 16:2; 2 Corinthians 9:7).
Each Lord’s Day you will hear a lesson from the Bible that will teach us God’s word and encourage us in seeking to live the life that pleases God (Romans 1:16-17).
You may expect the worship to be warm, friendly, and orderly (1 Corinthians 14:40).
We pray you will want to come and meet us, and come to know more about the Lord’s church (Ephesians 1:22-23).
