What We Believe

The Seneca church of Christ believes in God as the all-loving, all-powerful creator of the universe (Genesis 1:1).  We stand by the Bible as God’s inspired revelation for mankind (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and use it as our only standard for faith and morality (2 Peter 1:3).  We also believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (John 20:31), who through His death, burial, and resurrection provides salvation for mankind (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10). 

 

All people need this salvation because our sins against God’s standard separate us from Him (Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2).  Through faith and obedience to the gospel in the name of Jesus we can be forgiven and added to the church, Christ’s body (Romans 1:16; Acts 2:38, 41).  The church serves as God’s spiritual kingdom and family (Matthew 16:18-19; 1 Timothy 3:15), and its members are to build up one another in love (Ephesians 4:15-16).  Just as Jesus was raised from the dead, those in His church have the hope of eternal life in heaven through resurrection (John 5:25-29).

 

Our worship is simple, based on the pattern of worship in the New Testament.  Our church leadership is composed of a group of elders and deacons, also based on the pattern in the New Testament.  We emphasize love, service, and evangelism in the name of Jesus.  We would love to meet you, worship God with you, and grow with you in faith.
