Cross Church Of Christ
Who We Are
We are a group of Christians who are trying to
worship God in accordance with the New Testament pattern. We do not employ or
follow any human creeds and we are not connected with any denominational
hierarchy or religious organisation.
What We Believe
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of
God (2 Timothy
Expect If You Come
Firstly, you will notice that we do not place a
great deal of emphasis on the building in which we meet. As Christians we
believe the real emphasis is to be on our worship to God (John 4:23-24).
Secondly, we aim to do everything decently and in order (1 Corinthians
A Description Of Our Worship
We seek to pattern our worship after the simple
worship described in the New Testament. There are six basic aspects of worship
that we practise:
The Lord's Supper. The Lord's supper or communion is
a memorial feast instituted by Christ (Luke
Prayer. At various times during the service prayers will be offered
to God in the name of Jesus (Ephesians
Singing. The songs we sing
are psalms, hymns, and other songs which contain spiritual sentiments
Sermons. These are Bible-based talks that aim to encourage, teach or
explain particular passages or doctrines (1 Corinthians
Bible Classes. The congregation sets aside time to study a particular
topic or book of the Bible. There is a class for adults and one for children of
all ages. Questions and comments are welcome.
A Collection. There is a collection for the work of the church (1
Corinthians 16:1-2; 2 Corinthians 9:7). The money collected is used to promote
the gospel, edify the church, and provide for the needs of Christians.
Contributing towards the work of the church is the responsibility of the
members and, as a visitor, you will not be asked or expected to contribute.
Please don't feel obliged to give or embarrassed to pass the container to the
person next to you.
We probably haven't answered all your questions but
we do hope that you will attend our services whenever you can. You will always
find a warm welcome and there will always be someone willing to discuss any
questions you might have.
