Bea a Part of God

Be like newborn babies, crying out for spiritual milk that will help you grow into salvation. 1 Peter 2:2

We know many people are reluctant to visit a church if they don't know what to expect when they visit. It is our desire to share the joy and the hope we have in Christ and to help you know what to expect when you visit with us. Free written material on Bible subjects is available. We are also happy to arrange personal Bible studies at your convenience.
Many people are hesitant to attend worship services at an unfamiliar church. To help alleviate any apprehensions you may have regarding this congregation, we would like to explain what you can expect when you visit with us at the Radcliff Church of Christ.
First of all, you will find no exclusive pews for any person. All are greeted with equal courtesy and kindness (Acts 10:34-35; Galatians 3:28).
You will find no tendency toward entertainment with organ or piano music. Like the first century Christians (those who are mentioned in the Bible), we will engage in the singing of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs . The words used in our songs will be easy to understand (1 Corinthians 14:15). God has commanded the sincere praise of His people to come from the heart (Colossians 3:16).
You will not be confused by many people speaking or praying at the same time. Good order will prevail at every service (1 Corinthians 14:33). You will observe one of the brethren leading the congregation reverently and quietly in prayer (1 Timothy 2:1-5).
If you are present on Sunday, the Lord's Day, you will observe the congregation eating bread and drinking the fruit of the vine in memory of the death of Christ (Matthew 26:26-29). We do this on the first day of every week, like the Christians in the first century (Acts 20:7).
The Radcliff church of Christ consists of people who are striving to follow the divine pattern of the New Testament for the terms of entrance, organization, worship and mission of the original church of Christ.
