What you can expect when you visit
When you visit the Beville Road Church of Christ you will find a congregation of warm, caring and loving Christians. A congregation that loves God and a congregation that is genuinely happy to see visitors. This congregation is autonomous and is under the oversight of elders (pastors, or bishops), with a group of men serving as deacons, and we have a minister (or preacher). All of this follows the teaching of the New Testament and we follow the teachings with special significance paid to the statement "speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent."
At the worship services on each and every Sunday, we participate in five different elements of worship: prayer, singing, hearing God's word through a message, participating in the partaking of the Lord's Supper and giving of our means through financial contributions. Please consider the following scriptures in regards to each of the elements of worship.
Romans 12:12 "Continue steadfastly in prayer"
I Corinthians 7:5 "Give yourselves unto prayer"
Ephesians 5:19 "speaking one to another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord"
Hebrews 2:12 "In the midst of the congregation will I sing Thy praise"
Acts 20:7 "and upon the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul discoursed with them, intending to depart on the morrow"
The Lord's Supper:
I Corinthians 11:26 "for as often as ye eat this bread, and drink the cup, ye proclaim the Lord's death till He come"
Acts 2: 42 "and they continued steadfastly in the apostles' teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and the prayers"
I Corinthians16:2 "upon the first day of the week let each one of you lay by him in store, as he may prosper, that no collections be made when I come"
We believe that God's Word, the Bible, is inspired and that it teaches us how the Church was founded. The Bible also gives us the answer to the question "What must I do to be saved?"
