The church of Christ At The Boulevard



"All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. That the man of God may be be perfect thoroughly furnished unto all good works."


2 Tim 3:16-17


What the Bible Teaches

The church of our Lord stands firmly established in the love and eternal purpose of God. In (Act 2:42), the church continued steadfastly in the Apostles doctrine. The Apostle Paul reminds us (Rom 6:7) that we have "obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine and (2 Tim 1:13) to "hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus."

The Pattern means going to the Bible to discover what God wants His people to believe, practice and how to live until Jesus returns. It embraces the christian lifestyle, it embodies the elements of true worship collectively, gathering together in one place (1 Cor 11:20, Heb 10:25) along with a daily individual service for God's glory, honor and praise (Rom 12:1), as we grow, mature, and become transformed spiritually in accordance to His will. (Rom 12:2) The pattern gives the church her distinct identity of nature as it embraces the work and organizational structure of the church.

Singing

God only authorizes acapella singing in Worship. (Col 3:16, Eph 5:19, Jam 5:13). Believers are to do all things in the name of Jesus Christ, that is by His authority (Col 3:17).

Praying​

The basis of prayer is the right relationship with God. Prayer is talking with God, it is the hearts desire expressed to God. Prayer is supplication, an honest entreaty, a petition, intercession, thanksgiving and giving of thanks. (Phil 4:6, 1Tim 2:1)

Preaching

Preaching is proclaiming the good news, it includes equipping the saints for ministry, bringing the saints to the unity of the faith and to the knowledge of Christ. Preaching helps God's children grow spiritually while stabilizing them against the winds of error. We are commanded to "Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine (2 Tim 4:2)

Giving

"Upon the first day of the week let everyone of you lay by him in store, as God has prospered him." (1 Cor 16:2). Our giving is to be personal, periodic, purposed, pleasant, preferred, and plentiful. It is a spiritual barometer of our faith in God. God instructs us to give liberally. "Every man according as he purposes in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly or of necessity for God loves a cheerful giver." (2 Cor 9:7)

Communion

The Lord's Supper is observed every Lord's day. This is the first day (Sunday) of the week (Acts 20:7). This memorial supper was instituted by our Lord Jesus (Matt 26:26-29). Unleavened bread and the fruit of the vine are the only elements used by faith as the body and blood of the Lord. It is a communion and is related to the redemptive work of Christ on the cross, to the fellowship and unity of the church. It is a commemoration, a proclamation and a time for self-examination. (1 Cor 11:23-32)
