Maybe you’ve noticed that a lot of churches today are involved in all kinds of business and social ventures, and very little in teaching the word of God. Some are quite proud of the fact that they place little emphasis on doctrinal matters.
Our emphasis is spiritual — not material or social. For that reason, our main concern is that we abide in, and teach, the doctrine of Jesus Christ. This requires that we pay close attention to the New Testament, and treat it as our complete guide in spiritual matters.
It is our aim to be the very same church as the one you can read about in the New Testament. We do not claim perfection in our attempts to follow the doctrine of Christ, but neither do we use our imperfection as an excuse. We are always willing to examine ourselves as to whether we are in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5), and then make needed correction (Revelation 2:5).
The Bible clearly tells us that Christ’s church is a “spiritual house” (1 Peter 2:5). The New Testament tells us how to conduct ourselves in the church, which was designed to be “the pillar and ground of the truth” (1 Timothy 3:15).
If you are looking for a church that is merely a “front” for a social club or agency, you will not find what you are looking for here. However, if you share our interest in searching the scriptures in order to learn what the will of the Lord is, then we believe you will be happy with what you will find at the Loop 287 Church of Christ.
We are glad you are our guests today, and we want you to come back and be with us again. Tell us if you have any questions about the Bible, what we believe, or what we practice.
