We are simply a group of Christians. We are a community of believers who cooperate in fellowship as the spiritual family of God (Ephesians 3:14-15).
We’re not part of a denominational organization because such organizations are nowhere to be found in God’s Word. We are a completely independent group of Christians and our loyalty is to no man or group of men. We wear the name of Christ because it is Christ whom we serve, and our aim is to follow His teaching in the 21st century just as loyal Christians of the 1st century did.As for creeds, we have none other than the Bible itself (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
The religious world of our day is one of confusion and division, even though the Bible makes it clear that Jesus is not pleased with religious division (1 Corinthians 1:10; John 17:20,21). We believe that unity of Christians is God’s will.
In view of today’s religious division, many people are asking: “Is there any way to be sure that we are following the “one faith” authored by the Lord?” “Can the unity of the early Christians be obtained in the 21st century?”
We at Highway 65 firmly believe the answer to both questions is YES. If people will commit themselves to follow only the Bible, as they should, anyone can know the truth and be united in the gospel of Christ. And that is our plea!
When Jesus the Lord came to this world, He declared that He would build His church (Matthew 16:18). Jesus’ plan for His church, as described in the NT, provided the basis for unity. When the apostles delivered Jesus’ plan for His church, the apostle Paul commanded Christians to maintain the “unity of the Spirit” by recognizing, among other things, that there is only one body (church), one faith, and one baptism (Ephesians 4:4,5; 1:22-23).
The apostle Peter said, “If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God” (1 Peter 4:11). Only when we teach God’s truth and not our own opinions can we have confidence that we are nothing more or less than the church found in the New Testament. Only then can we be just Christians (Acts 11:26).
What To Expect When You Visit:
Our goal is to worship God in spirit and truth, according to the teaching of the New Testament. We hope you will worship along with us with an open mind and a humble spirit.
On Sundays we sing, pray, take the Lord’s Supper, contribute funds to provide for the work of the Lord (we never solicit visitors), and listen to the preaching of God’s Word. These are the same actions the New Testament churches engaged in on the Lord’s Day.
Balanced, Interactive Teaching
On Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings we have Bible classes for all ages.
We are committed to providing Christ centered and Bible based instruction that will practically impact the lives of families devoted to Christ. We believe that scriptural teaching produces the strongest marriages, homes and relationships.
When you visit no one will embarrass you in any way. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible, and we believe you will enjoy your visit with us. If you don’t mind, we would like for you to fill out a visitor’s card so we can have a record of your visit. Thank you for being with us.
