Who are these people??

Maybe you are wondering who are these people who assemble at the Huntingtown church of Christ in Huntingtown, Maryland?  The answer is very simple, we are Christians and Christians only - Acts 11:26.  We wear no human names nor identify ourselves with any religious groups or denominations.  We gladly wear the name Christ has given to us in the scriptures - 1 Peter 4:16.

You will notice a sign on the front of the building saying we are a "church of Christ" which simply means we are a group of people who belong to Christ - Acts 20:28.

What should you expect when you visit us? Many people are very reluctant to visit an unfamiliar place, especially a church assembly, where there are people you have never met.  You are anxious because you do not know what to expect when you arrive.  We want to try to put your mind at ease and describe what you will find when you visit the church of Christ in Huntingtown.

~When you enter the building you will find a group of friendly people who will greet you in a warm manner - Mark 12:31.  We want to make you feel right at home.  We will help you find your way to the appropriate class or assembly.

~You will not be singled out or asked to identify yourself publicly as you are our honored guest; however, you may be asked to fill out a visitor card so we can have a record of your visit with us.

~You will find a group of people who want to serve God and please Him - Hebrews 11:6.

~You will find a group of Christians worshipping God in spirit and truth according to the Word of God - John 4: 23-24.

~You will find a worship service that is simple, reverent, and sincere which provides an atmosphere conducive to worship - 1 Corinthians 14:33, 40.  The acts of worship are based solely on the scriptures - Colossians 3:17.  We will only observe those acts of worship for which we have Bible authority.

~You may choose to quietly observe the worship service or we welcome you to join in and participate if you desire.

~We place a great deal of spiritual emphasis on Bible study - 2 Timothy 2:15.  On Sunday morning at 10:00 and Wednesday evening at 7:00 we have Bible classes for all ages.  We desire Bible classes that will foster an open discussion of the Word of God and its application to the problems we face in our everyday walk as a Christian.  We want Christians to grow to maturity in Christ - 2 Peter 3:18.

~We will participate in the following acts of worship each Lord's day:

°Singing - Colossians 3:16; Ephesians 5:19

°Giving - 1 Corinthians 16:1-2

°Lord's Supper - 1 Corinthians 11:23-29; Acts 20:7

°Prayer - Acts 2:42; 12:5

°Preaching and Teaching - Mark 16:15; Acts 5:42; 1 Corinthians 15: 1-2

The church of Christ in Huntingtown has no human creed containing official articles of faith, but we do seek to speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where it is silent.  We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and only it alone can provide the instructions for our Salvation.- 2 Timothy 3:16-17  We also believe God in His Word has revealed a pattern for our Worship that we must follow which is mentioned briefly above.  You will be able to study about Authority and how it is established from God's Word.  At Huntingtown we will do our best to duplicate and follow the example of the early church during New Testament times in everything we do in regard to the work and worship of the church.

We welcome ANY questions that you may have pertaining to God's church and/or God's Word.
