We Are About...
About the Church of Christ at Fairview Park
We are a group of Christians who are not ashamed to wear the name of our Lord. We are a "church of Christ," not because we are affiliated with a denomination, but because we belong to Him. That is what we are about. After all, it is all about Him.
We are about the Bible. We believe that every word on its pages are from the mind of God Himself. "All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:16-17). It is what we teach in our Bible classes. It is what we preach from our pulpit. We are about the Bible. All of it. Every word.
We are about worship. It is the Bible that instructs us how to worship and Whom to worship. God is the center of our assembly, a service that is not just about feeling but following His will for worship. "All things must be done properly and in an orderly manner" (1 Corinthians 14:40). Our purpose is not to impress people, but to praise God and to be impressed by all that He has done for us.
We are about service. We don't offer our help because we feel like we have to, we see service as our priviledge. It is why we are here. It is how we serve the Lord. "So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all mean, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith." (Galatians 6:10) God is good to use. What better way to express gratitude than to share His good ness with someone else? Let us serve you in any way that we can. It would be our pleasure.
