WHO ARE WE?
The Newton Church of Christ is a congregation of God's people who work together to do the work that God has given us to do together.
Consequently you will not find us involved in the social gospel approach to worship that many have adopted.
The work of the Lord's church is three-fold- Evangelism- Edification- Limited Benevolence.
We gain our authority from the New Testament for our practices by either Specific or Generic commands. We also must have authority in the New Testament for what we practice and this comes in three ways:
Direct Command, Approved Apostolic Example and Necessary Inference.
We are non-institutional and use the Lord's funds only for what He has authorized us to use them for. We do not beg money from those who are not members. We support our own work in the community. Individual Christians are taught in Gal. 6:10 and James 1:27 to be helpful and benevolent to all men. But the Lord's church is to take care of its' own needy.
Our prime interest is the salvation of souls.
If you are looking for a group of Christians to worship with according to the New Testament pattern, you will be pleased with us. We are not perfect but we are striving for perfection in all things.
When you visit with us you will not be offered coffee, donuts, softball teams, food or be entertained with some "comtemporary approach" to worship. We offer what the Lord , In His wisdom offers all mankind. Simple, plain, Scriptural New Testament worship and work. You are probably tired and weary of the Business world approach to merchandising and advertisement in the name of religion. Religion in general has been cheapened and degraded by the carnal approaches that many use to gain a crowd. If you want the Old Jerusalem Gospel that shook the hills of Zion in the first century and still moves the hearts of honest men when given its' proper place in our lives, then come and worship with us at the Newton Church of Christ where every visitor is a welcome guest. You will not be singled out or embarassed publicly in any way when you come. We look forward to meeting you and studying the Word of God together.
(on behalf of the Newton Church of Christ)
We strive to follow the instruction Jesus has given (Matthew 28:19-20).
We want the opportunity to help you learn the gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ. We want to study the Bible with you in a setting to make you as comfortable as possible:
We have a series of lessons on our sites for your convenience. We also have a series that can be mailed to you so that you can study at your own pace.
We have material on various Bible subjects that can be made available to you upon your request.
If you are in our area, we would be happy to come to your home,
or a place comfortable to you, and have a Bible study.
We always invite your biblical questions.
OUR CONCERN FOR YOU:
The world can be harsh at times, and cause you to wonder if anyone cares anymore.
Please know that as Christians WE CARE ABOUT YOU:
Our soul is the most precious possession we have. We are concerned about your soul. Jesus said "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul.." (Matthew 16:26).
We want to encourage you to become a fellow citizen in the kingdom of Christ, and seek with us that eternal home with God.
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.-II Timothy 2:15.
