History


 
The churches of Christ History:
The apostle Paul mentioned "the churches of Christ" in Romans 16:16. He said, "all the churches of Christ greet you." In saying this, Paul was not referring to numerous "denominations" of Christ's church; but to various "congregations" scattered throughout the Roman Empire (i.e. Ephesus, Corinth, etc).

We, too, are striving to be the same church as our early predecessors. We are undenominational in the sense that we have no central headquarters or president. Every congregation of the "churches of Christ" is completely autonomous and rests upon "the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone" (Ephesians 2:20). Jesus is the one and only "head" of His church...and His church is the "body" over which He is "head" (Ephesians 1:22-23). This means that the church is to be in complete subjection to the will of Christ presented in the pages of inspired New Testament scripture (II Timothy 3:16-17). A serious burden of responsibility is laid upon the elders, evangelists, and members of every local congregation to be certain that our beliefs and behavior are correct. We analyze our faith carefully, we study the Bible thoroughly, and we reject false doctrines and traditions which contradict the teachings of Jesus and His apostles (Matthew 7:21; II Thessalonians 2:15).
The Sun Valley church of Christ History:
The Sun Valley church of Christ was started in December 1987.  The original building was built in 1990 and the new auditorium and classroom wing were added in 2005.
 
Our average attendance during the summer months is around 200.  During the winter months are average attendance grows to around 250-275 members.  Our congregation is composed of people from all nationalities and age groups. 
 
Our worship service is all acapella singing (all vocal singing).  We also set aside a time every Sunday to give to the work of the church in accordance with what we are commanded in New Testament Scripture (I Corinthians 16:2; 2 Corinthians 9:6-9).  You should not feel obligated to give but you are always welcome to do so.
