The mission of the Bristol Road Church of Christ is to
‘Encourage individuals in their next steps with Jesus Christ.’
Whether your “next step” is coming to church for the first time, studying the Bible, praying with your family, or sharing your faith with others, we want to encourage you to take those next steps.
We have intentionally designed some sacred spaces in which to help with these next steps by:
We invite you to come and join us this weekend!
God: We believe in the existence of a loving God who is the source of all creation. He has created us to find our eternal destiny in relationship with Him. He exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Bible: We believe that the Bible is our inspired source written by men who were led by the Spirit of God and is necessary for learning both about God and godly living. As Christ-followers, our role is to communicate the principles of Scripture to a fallen world in a relevant way.
Salvation: We believe that salvation is the free gift of God that has been made available to all as a result of Jesus’ death on the cross. Salvation is available to all who put their trust in Christ as Savior.
Baptism: We believe baptism is a one-time faith response of both a personal and public declaration of a new association in Jesus Christ. We are devoted to teaching and encouraging believers to be immersed in Christ and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. We believe based on our reading of the Biblical text that baptism involves immersion (a symbolic burial) in water.
Humanity: We believe that human-kind was created in the image of God but was separated from God through our sinful nature. As a result, humanity is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own effort.
Prayer: We believe prayer is essential to our spiritual and physical strength, both as individuals and as the Church. We believe nothing is impossible with God and He wants us to ask all things in faith and trust.
Worship: We believe that all of our life is to be worship for our God. God’s desire is that worship be our genuine, passionate, and Spirit-filled response to Him. We are committed to planning relevant and diverse worship experiences that inspire, convict, teach, heal and draw people into the very presence of God so that they can carry that worship with them throughout the rest of their week.
Communion: Each week we celebrate Jesus victory over death and His imminent return during our communion time. We believe the Bread and the Cup remind us of Christ’s complete love for us as demonstrated by his sacrifice on the cross.
The Church: We believe that the Church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus is the head. The Church’s main function is to be a visible manifestation of God on this earth. The Church continues the work of Jesus through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit by ministering to those who are hurting and by calling people to godly living.
