About Us



 
We are among those who seek to be Christians only.  The congregations of these people, of which we are a part, are known as churches of Christ.  This term is intended to denote our desire to be Christ's church.  The Bible says, "all the churches of Christ greet you" (Romans 16:16).  We are committed to maintaining a New Testament church in every way.  Our purpose is to seek and save the lost. Jesus said, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit"  (Matt 28:19).
 
The churches of Christ have a distinctive plea.  It is a primary plea for religious unity based upon the Bible.  We believe in the divine inspiration of the entire Bible and that it is sufficient to guide us in all matters of faith. It teaches us about the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and His atonement for our sins. It teaches us that after death all men will be rewarded or punished eternally for the way they have lived here. We are convicted that the New Testament must be our only guide in religious faith.  We, therefore, have no creed or handbook, but we accept the Bible as our only guidebook.  In this way we are not persuaded by traditions of men to accept any truth which is not found in God's word.
 
The church of Christ in Timberville, Virginia holds firm to the belief that we should speak where the Bible speaks and remain silent where the Bible is silent. 

Deuteronomy 12:32 (NASB) 32 "Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it."
