About Us

Welcome!

We are glad you are visiting our site.  We pray that you may be blessed by the materials included on our Website.

We are Christian Bible Students.

We accept Christ as our personal Savior, and believe that he died not only for the Christians but for all the world. “… the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for ALL …” (1 Timothy 2:5,6, RSV); “… one man’s act of righteousness leads to acquittal and life for ALL men.” (Romans 5:18, RSV)

We accept the Bible as the inspired Word of God, and study it in its entirety – both the Old and New Testaments, seeking the harmony of the complete Scriptural testimony. “All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching …” (2 Tim. 3:16, 17)

We believe that each individual is responsible to personally study and prove the interpretation of the Bible for himself. We strongly recommend topical Bible study (e. g. ransom, restitution, resurrection) as the best means of arriving at God’s meaning on each subject and provide study aids to that end. We encourage continual Bible reading on a personal basis.

How . . . We are organized

Our local congregation is totally independent. We have no central headquarters. In our international fellowship we cooperate with other independent congregations.  The servants or ministers of our church are elected from within our local fellowship, based on the Scriptural qualifications listed in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1.  Our meetings are usually held in private homes or rented facilities. We take no collections. Whenever we vote to have an activity, unsolicited donations have always been sufficient to meet the commitment.

What . . . Our Activities Are!

We hold Sunday studies on Biblical subjects, and welcome all sincere Christians to join with us in these services. While urging parental responsibility in the religious education and training of our children, we do provide children’s classes at our Sunday meetings. We encourage a complete, personal consecration of our all to God, accepting the trials, testings, and sufferings that such a life brings as not worth of comparison with all the joys and glories to follow. (Romans 12:1-2; 8:17-19, 22-23; 2 Timothy 2:11-12). We carry on an active witnessing campaign, telling others of God’s wondrous plan through newspapers, videos, television, radio, the internet and printed literature.
