What We Believe

Mission Statement

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Mat 28:18-20)

When Jesus ascended back to the Father, he left his disciples with a mission. We, the members of the North 7th Street Church of Christ, proclaim Jesus as our Lord and Master (John 20:28) and seek to fulfill His will (John 14:15).

Our Mission:

  • To go into our local community, as well as support evangelistic outreaches in other places (Acts 1:8), and preach the Gospel (1 Cor 15:1-4) of Christ.
  • To preach that Christ Jesus died for all humanity (Rom 5:8) and only by faith (Col 2:12) in our act of obedience (1 Pet 3:21) through baptism (Rom 6:1-4) are our sins washed away (Acts 22:16).
  • To teach those new Christians the ordinance of God in all aspects of life (11 Pet 1:3-11)
  • To proclaim that Christ will return (1Th 4:16) and bring judgment for all humankind (Heb 9:27; 11 Cor 5:10-11)


Our worship is simple and sincere. Our goal is to worship in both spirit & truth (John 4:23-24) as God himself desires to be worshipped. Everything we do comes straight from the examples that we find in the New Testament. You are encouraged to take part in the service as we, together, worship and praise our God in Heaven.


Colossians 3:16; Ephesians 5:19

The singing, you will notice, is done without the accompaniment of musical instruments. This form of singing is called “a cappella”. We sing with our hearts as the Lord commands us in scripture. Everyone is encouraged to participate and the singing is quite uplifting and enjoyable for all.


I Corinthians 14:15

Throughout the service there are many prayers, led by various men. Prayer is a time for us to communicate with our heavenly Father through our Savior, Jesus Christ. These prayers are simple and come from the heart of the one who is leading the prayer. The prayers are led by one man out loud while all others consider what is being said, and offer their own prayers up to God as well.


Acts 20:7

All of the teaching is Biblical. We simply speak where the Bible speaks and are silent where the Bible is silent. Men who speak, do so one-by-one so that it is orderly and edifying to all who are in audience. The sermons are designed to educate, uplift, motivate, and build up each person in the audience. The Bible lies at the center of all of our teaching.


I Cor. 11: 23; Acts 20:7

As the Christians in the New Testament practiced, every first day of the week, we observe the Communion service on every Sunday. The bread is passed which represents the body of Jesus Christ, which was broken on the cross. Then the fruit of the vine is passed, which is the Communion of Christ’s blood that was shed on the cross, for our sins. This is a memorial that Jesus himself instituted with his disciples, before his death. It is important that we observe this, every Sunday, because, in so doing, we show the Lord’s death until he comes again.


I Cor. 16:1-3; II Cor. 9:6-7

On every Sunday, we also collect the offering of those who have laid-by and stored as the Lord has prospered them. This donation goes to the work of the church, and its ministry. If you are visiting with us, please do not feel obligated to give. We give cheerfully, and of a loving heart; which is described in the New Testament.
