History

The Smithsonia vicinity was denominationally dominated by Baptist churches in the early 1950s.  In 1954, a proponent of the return to New Testament Christianity as a means of achieving unity of all believers in Christ, Evangelist John Harris, evangelized this area and conducted a gospel meeting, but his initial effort was to no avail.  in the ensuing year, 1955, he returned to Smithsonia and conducted another gospel meeting, but there was no fruitful accomplishment.  Yet the seed was sown.  Luke 8:11

In 1956, Evangelist David Shows came into the area and evangelized, and he successfully accomplished the goal.  Thus the beginning of the Smithsonia Church of Christ as in 1956 by David Shows, Evangelist, with four members.

In some respect, the residents of this area are related by birth.  However, the obedience of the Gospel of Christ by a handful of relatives, as members of the Church of Christ, separating temselves from denominationalism, has created and unbecoming attitude and absolute isolation by their denominational relatives, but the four new converts courageously and faithfully continued to worship their God in spirit and in truth. Matthew 10:34-39 ; Luke 14:26-27

The God-fearing and loving handful of servants erected a tent under which they were conducting their worship service.  Their giving or collection on the Lord's Day was about $5.  Surprisingly, the winter and the hospitality of the environment drove them the meeting place.  A white congregation came to their assistance by building a meeting place.

As the congregation began to grow, the building was extended.  The total cost for the building was about $50,000.  Later on in 1988 due to the idea of the sisters of the congregation, namely Sis. Ann Doxie a fellowship hall was added on.

Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.


"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword." "For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law." And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. "And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me." He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
"If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." "And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple."
