THE CHURCH OF CHRIST
Peterborough Church of Christ
"God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.(Jn. 4:24)" Peterborough Church of Christ is a group of Christians striving to follow the pattern of worship found within the Word of God. Our goal is to simply be Christians who are pleasing to God. We do not claim to be perfect, but we do proclaim the excellencies of Him who is perfect (1 Peter 2:9).
Jesus is the foundation of the church (1 Cor. 3:11), and He purchased it with His own blood (Acts 20:28). Jesus makes the statement, “If you love me, keep my commandments” (Jn. 14:15).After the great love Jesus showed us by dying on the cross for our sins, we simply want to love Him back by obeying His commands.
As you read through the Scriptures, you will not find denominations. Instead, you will discover that there was only one church/body (Eph. 4:4). The apostle Paul emphasized over and over again that the church was to be in unity and of the same mind (Phi. 1:27). In fact, Paul condemned the concept of denominations when he wrote to the church at Corinth: " Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment" (1 Cor. 1:10).Paul continues on in that same chapter talking about how some were calling themselves by the names of men. Then Paul asked the question, “ Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?” (1Cor. 1:13). Obviously the answer to Paul’s question is no.
This is why we believe it is imperative that we worship God and live our lives according to His Word and His Word only. If you are interested in learning more about the church that Jesus purchased with His own blood, then feel free to contact us or worship with us. Glory be to God and the wonderful grace He has given us.
