We at the Church of Christ place a high value on families and believe that the family is very important. In fact, we are convinced that God created the family with discipleship as its primary purpose. As a result, we strive to be a church that has healthy marriages, dedicated parents, committed individuals and purpose driven ministries. Our ministers are eager to assist you in these areas and want to be of service to you and/or your family.
In order to mature the body of believers, we believe that we must work toward developing five principles within the church as well as our own families. These five principals reveal our vision for the Church of Christ on West Main.
A Family Whose Foundation is Christ – This church will love the Lord, His word and His mission. These believers will seek to build their lives, private and public, on the foundation of Jesus. All plans, every thought and conversation, each relationship will be tempered with this truth.
A Family that Matures the Discipled –As Christians, we will be a church that continually gives ourselves to “growing up” into the image of Jesus. Each member and/or family will be fully devoted to spiritual maturation. We aim to be strong and stable in Jesus our Lord. We feel that our families, thus the church, can be made complete or whole with God’s word; eagerly giving themselves to opportunities to study God’s word.
A Family that Embraces Her Responsibility –We strive to be a church that includes every member, making every member matter. This will be seen from spiritual formation, utilizing giftedness, discovery of “niches”, evangelizing communities/neighborhoods, being good stewards, given to hospitality, and serving others. Each member will have a meaningful role in the church.
A Family that Enables Accountability –We have a responsibility to help our brethren. We will be a church that will submit to our leaders, carry each other’s unbearable-loads, and help each other turn away from sin. We all need help in our walk and this aid is seen in the relationship we have one to another. We see ourselves encouraging one another one-on- one, strengthening each with godly reminders, exhorting each other toward edification, and reproving each other towards holiness.
A Family that Reproduces Disciples –To goal is to help the North Rapids church become reproductive, from a corporate sense as well as from an individual aspect. The church is responsible to produce other churches. Likewise, a child of God is responsible for maturity to the point where he or she is enabling and assisting other people to grow in Christ in a personal way.
