Who We Are
We are a group of Christians that believe everything we do religiously must be based on the Bible and the Bible alone. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and he is our risen Savior.
What to expect at Blanco Church of Christ
We invite you to worship with us and we pray that you will feel comfortable and welcome. We hope that you will be impressed by the simplicity of our services, our reverence for the scriptures, and the love and friendliness of our members.
Our worship is simple and Biblical
All that we do is governed by the Word of God and we observe only those things contained in it. We attempt to duplicate the pattern of the early New Testament church in everything that we do.
Our worship in song is vocal only. No instruments of music are used. We only "sing and make melody in the heart" (Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16). We believe that it would be an addition to God's word if we added instruments of music.
Our classes and sermons are to instruct and encourage in the ways of rightousness. The scriptures are complete and furnish us completely in every good work (II Timothy 3:16-17).
The collection, or contribution, is taken only on Sunday. Each one is to give of his means as he has been prospered and purposes in his heart (I Corinthians 16:2, II Corinthians 9:7). It is voluntary and is used for the Lord's work.
The Lord's Supper
The communion, as it is also called, is observed in memory of Christ. The men at the table will pray and give thanks for the bread and then it is passed to everyone in the assembly. The same procedure will be followed for the fruit of the vine. This is observed every first day of the week by the congregation. This is based on the example given to us (I Corinthians 11:23-24; Acts 20:6-7).
The prayers are designed to praise and honor God and to thank him for His Blessings as well as request his continued care over us.
God's Plan of Redemption
We believe the Bible has given us very simple, clear-cut steps to follow in order to have our sins washed away.
|Hear God's Word||Romans 10:14|
|Believe Jesus is God's Son||Hebrews 11:6|
|Repent of your sins||Acts 17:30|
|Confess your faith in Jesus||Acts 8:36-37|
|Wash away your sins by baptism||Acts 2:38|
|Remain faithful unto death||II Timothy 4:7|
Come work with us
There is so much to do! Our ability to help others and spread the gospel is only limited by our resources. If you want to worship with a friendly, loving group of Christians whose only goal is to spend eternity in heaven, please come and visit us!
