The College View Church of Christ is a group of believers in Christ striving to work and worship together as a New Testament local church. Our purpose is to provide an environment in which Christians can grow and flourish into the image of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4:16). Additionally, we work together in spreading the Gospel of Christ to our friends, family, and neighbors. Our aim is that they, too, receive the forgiveness of sins and the hope of eternal life (Acts 2:38-42).
We always welcome questions, so feel free to ask! If there is something about your experience here you want us to explain in more detail, we will be happy to do so.
Acapella, congregational singing is one feature of worship God desires. The New Testament teaches us to sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to edify each other and glorify God and Christ (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16). Our song director will announce the selections he chooses and you can find them in our book, Hymns for Worship.
Prayer will be offered by one of the men, as he leads and directs all of our thoughts together (1 Timothy 2:1-4).
A collection will be taken from our members as a means of supporting our work. Early Christians did this each Sunday, too (1 Corinthians 16:1-2). Visitors are under no obligation whatsoever to contribute to this collection.
The Lord's Supper will be offered to all Christians in memory of the death and sacrifice of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
A sermon will be preached that exalts the Word of God above the will of man. The speaker will point us again and again to the Scriptures as the inerrant, infallible word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). You are encouraged to use your own Bible and follow along. At the conclusion of the sermon, anyone wishing to become a Christian, or Christians desiring the prayers of the church will be given opportunity to do so.
