What To Expect When You Visit Us
If you are looking for a church home in the Phoenix metropolitan area or are just interested in finding out more information about the Alma School Rd. Church of Christ, let us introduce ourselves and let you know what to expect when you do visit us.
You Will Feel Welcome!
When you visit us you will be a respected guest. We gather to sing, study, and pray together. Our assembly is not a display of emotion and excitement, but a simple and devout period of worship.
There is nothing mysterious or nerve-wracking about it. There is not a moment when you will wonder what is about to happen next. No high pressure methods will be used to influence you in any way, and no embarrassing moments will make you wish you hadn't come. You will not feel out of place at any of our services.
Our Worship Is Simple
Our worship may be entered into by all present. Our music is composed of simple songs. The prayers are fervent appeals to God. The sermons are all Christ-centered and Bible-filled. They are designed to teach and uplift.
The only contribution is taken on Sunday morning. The Lord?s Supper is observed each Sunday. His memorial supper was inaugurated by Jesus (Matt. 26:26-28). It is observed by Christians in memory of the Lord?s death (I Corinthians 11:24-25). The emblems: the unleavened bread and the fruit of the vine symbolize the body and blood of Jesus(I Corinthians 10:16).
A Church With No Creed But The Bible
We exalt only Jesus Christ as the head of the church. His gospel in the New Testament is the only source of authority and doctrine.
A Church With A Bible Name
We are a congregation of people who call ourselves Christians (Acts 11:26), and who wish to be one of the "churches of Christ" as mentioned in Romans 16:16.
A Church That Does Not Exalt Men
Our minister wears no distinguishing title or dress. Christ is to have preeminence in the church, which is his body (Col. 1:18).
A Church That Teaches
The Gospel Plan For Salvation
When Peter preached the Gospel on Pentecost, those believers who repented and were baptized for the remission of sins were added by the Lord to his Church (Acts 2:38-41,47). This is Christ?s plan for the salvation of men today, as it
was in the first century.
