Who We Are
The Mercer County Church of Christ is a family of disciples of Jesus Christ. We believe Jesus Christ is Lord and are committed to following all of his teachings. We are a non-denominational fellowship whose members represent all racial and social backgrounds and we are committed to helping one another to display God’s love to a hurting world. Our goal is to create a church that is not separate from the community but is actively involved in being a light within the community as we strive to create a place “where the love of God is found.”
What We Believe
- The Bible is the inspired word of God and is to be our guide for living as followers of Christ (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
- Salvation is available only through Jesus Christ (John 14:1-6) and is a gift from God through faith in his grace (Ephesians 2:8).
- God has given us baptism so that through faith, we can die to our old selves and live to God (Romans 6:3-13; Galatians 2:20-21), receive the forgiveness of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38).
- The focus of our lives is to love God with all our hearts, souls, minds, and strength and our neighbors as ourselves (Mark 12:28-31).
- The Holy Spirit, which we receive at baptism (Acts 2:38), gives us the power to change (Galatians 5:18-26).
- We have fellowship with all those of the same mind and are always striving to maintain the bond of unity (Ephesians 4:1-6).
