Sasser church building.


THIS CHURCH is a body of people identical to those you read about in your New Testament, such as: "The church of God which is at Corinth" (I Cor.1:1), and "the churches of Galatia" (Gal. 1:2), and "the churches of Christ salute you" (Rom, 16:16). Its members are a part of the oldest church in the world because we are a part of the original church, which had its beginning on the first Pentecost following the resurrection of Christ. Of its beginning, one can read in Acts 2:47, where, for the first time, it is said that people were added to it.

IT CONSISTS of a body of baptized believers in which the Spirit of Christ dwells (I Cor. 3:16), and over which Christ rules as the supreme Head (Eph. 1: 22-23; Col. 1:18).

IT ACCEPTS the Bible, the whole Bible, and nothing but the Bible as the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice, and rejects all human creeds and human opinions as instruments of division and abominable to God (Proverbs. 6:19).

IT CONTAINS salvation for the lost (Acts 2:47; Eph. 5:25), refuge for the wayward (Matt. 11:28-30; John. 14:6), and eternal hope for those who die in its fellowship (Rev. 2:10; 14:13).

IT HAS NO creed book but the Bible (I Pet. 4:11), no Captain but the Christ (Hebrews 2:10), no name but the divine (Acts 11:26; 1 Pet. 4:16; Acts 26:28; Rom. 16:16), and no goal but to save (Acts 2:47; Eph. 5:23).

IT PLEADS for the all sufficiency of the local church to do all of its work, for unity in Christ (John 17:20-21), for spirituality in worship (John 4:24), for purity in life (Titus 2:11-12), and for New Testament authority for everything believed, taught or practiced in religion.

ITS MEMBERS are neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish, but simply New Testament Christians (Acts 11:26). They are thankful for the exalted privilege of membership in this blood-bought (Acts 20:28), Heaven-born, Spirit-filled and eternally purposed church (Eph. 3:10-11; I Cor. 3:16). To its defense we are dedicated, and to its service our lives are consecrated. It is our desire that the church of our Lord will ultimately supersede all humanly devised denominational churches, and that the world will again be united in Christ rather than divided into the current parties and sects of men. To this end our lives and prayers are willingly dedicated.

MEMBERSHIP IN this spiritual body is obtainable by simple obedience to the Gospel of Christ. According to Jesus, one must:

  1. Believe in Him as the Christ (John. 8:24; Rom. 10:10).
  2. Repent of all sins (Luke 13:3).
  3. Confess faith in Christ as the Son of God (Matt. 10:32; Acts 8:37).
  4. Be baptized in water (to contact the blood of Jesus) for the remission of sins (Mk.16:15-16; Acts 2:38; 22:16; 1Pet.3:21; Gal. 3:26-27).
WE CORDIALLY INVITE YOU to all of our assemblies, and welcome your questions about anything we do, say or believe. We have nothing to hide, and obligate ourselves to produce book, chapter and verse for everything we teach, believe or practice, or we will renounce it.

We are determined to practice nothing else other than pure New Testament Christianity (Gal. 1:8-9; I Peter 4:11).

OUR BIBLE CLASSES are just what the name implies-studies in the text of the Bible. These Bible classes provide guidance in all aspects of daily Christian living. Both adults and children are taught to hunger for God; put Him first in our lives regardless of the cost and serve Him as Creator. Should you want to attend any of our services, but lack transportation, please call one of the numbers listed on the back of this brochure; we will make arrangements for someone to pick you up and bring you back home following our assemblies.

OUR WORSHIP is simple and spiritual rather than ritualistic (John 4:24). It consists not of elaborate ceremonies and pageantry, but of Bible study (Acts 2:47), congregational singing (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16), prayers (Acts 2:42), giving as we have been prospered (I Cor. 16:1-2), and observing the Lord's Supper (Acts 20:7), each Lord's Day.

SHOULD YOU BE INTERESTED in learning more about the Bible, we invite you to call the numbers provided and request a series of studies at a time and place convenient to you. We assure you that you will be under no obligation, and you can terminate the studies any time you desire.

YOU CAN BE SURE that this is not an offer to teach tenets of some human creed, nor a clever way to promote some human institution. We are interested only in a study of the Word of God, and extending the boarders of His Kingdom, rather than building up or multiplying sinful parties and sects that divide family, friends and communities (I Corinthians 1:10; John 17:20-23).

You are important to us. The members of the Sasser church of Christ would like to get to know you better, and to provide whatever spiritual assistance we can. We would be happy to be of service to you. We have several programs that may interest you. Please include your information in the space provided below and submit it to us... or you may EMAIL me (Jeff Grimes) directly: Request Information
