The Capshaw church of Christ is a group of believers in Jesus Christ that is striving to work and worship together as a New Testament local church. Our purpose is to provide an environment in which Christians can grow and flourish into the image of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4:16). Additionally, we work together in spreading the Gospel of Christ to our friends, family, and neighbors. Our aim is that they, too, receive the forgiveness of sins and the hope of eternal life (Acts 2:38-42)
Acapella, congregational singing is one feature of worship God desires. The New Testament teaches us to sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to edify each other and glorify God and Christ (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16). Our song leaders will announce the selections he chooses to lead and you can find those songs in our hymn book, Hymns for Worship, or over head on our projector.
Prayer will be offered by one of the men, as he leads and directs all of our thoughts together (1 Timothy 2:1-4).
A collection will be taken from our members as a means of supporting our work. Early Christians did this each Sunday as well (1 Corinthians 16:1-2). Visitors are under no obligation to contribute to this collection as this is a work of the local church at Capshaw.
The Lord's Supper will be offered to all Christians in memory of the death and sacrifice of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 11:23-26) each and every Sunday morning.
A sermon will be preached that exalts the Word of God above the will of man. The speaker will point us again and again to the Scriptures as the inerrant, infallible word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). You are encouraged to use your own Bible and follow along. An invitation is given at the conclusion of the sermon for anyone wishing to become a Christian or for Christians desiring the prayers of the church.
