We at the Evendale church of Christ are seeking a Christ-centered life. Christ “is our life” (Colossians 4:3). We are not perfect, however, we strive together as a spiritual family to “walk in a manner worthy” of the Christian life described in the Bible (Ephesians 4:1). Simply put, we are redeemed sinners who have our sins washed away by the blood of Jesus. And to show our deep gratitude, we are trying our best to be the people and the church Jesus talks about in Mathew 16:18 when He says “I will build my church.” We are an undenominational church, patterned after the New Testament. Our goal is to glorify God in all that we say and do.
We Would Like To Get To Know You
We are a group of Christians intent upon spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. We were taught about Christ by someone, and we have an obligation to “pay forward’ what we know about our Lord and the way He wants us to live (2 Timothy 2:2). We want to share how we found the grace of God that saves us and what we have learned from the Word.
Are you looking for a church family? Do you have a Bible question? Are you seeking a greater purpose in your life? We will do our best to help answer questions such as these. Please contact us for assistance.
The church of Christ at Evendale is a group of Christians focused on serving God by serving others. Our work may be categorized as follows:
Evangelism and Education
We believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God and we want to share it with as many people as we can. Jesus said in Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,” and we strive to do this publicly and privately. We learn about Christ so we can serve Him better and help others do the same. We do this through bi-weekly Bible classes for children and adults, sermons, written material, CDs, home Bible studies with interested individuals or groups, and financially supporting preachers locally, nationally and in foreign lands.
We are a spiritual family whose members are all different but who all have a purpose and role to fill. Romans 12:5 reminds us that we are “members one of another.” Fellowship with other people trying to serve God is the key to the welfare and survival of every Christian. Jesus said people will know us by our love for each other (John 13:35).
Our worship is patterned after the examples of the New Testament Christians who lived and worshipped God in the first century. These are the ways we glorify and honor God:
Prayers are offered by different men to express different cares to God at specific periods in our worship.
…By prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made know to God (Philippians 4:6).
Songs are sung without instruments, a capella (which means “in the style of the churches”) because that was the practice of the early church.
Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord (Ephesians 5:19).
The Lord’s Supper is a memorial to Jesus our Lord. We celebrate this each Sunday as disciples have always done. This memorial reminds us of what Jesus’ life, death and resurrection offers to all of mankind.
Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them… (Acts 20:7).
The contribution of the saints is taken up each Sunday, following the example in scripture. This is a collection from our church family. Guests may contribute but are not expected to do so.
Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also: On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come (1 Corinthians 16:1-2).
During the sermon you are encouraged to follow along in your Bible or from one in the pew racks. The intent of our speaker is always to simply proclaim a message from the Bible, and the audience is encouraged to examine the Scriptures to make sure that the truth is presented.
These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so (Acts 17:11).
Bible study is extremely important because it is the means to understanding the will of God. To be pleasing to God, we must do what he has directed in His word.
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth (2 Tim. 2:15).
Please take advantage of the many opportunities for Bible Study we offer.
Our Desire for You
We would be richly blessed if you would visit us. We know it takes courage to walk into a group of strangers. You won’t be singled out in our worship, asked to do anything you are uncomfortable doing, or urged to make any quick decisions. Participate in whatever you want, or sit quietly and observe what we do. Hopefully, you will depart saying, “God is really among you” (1 Corinthians 14:25).
