Our congregation, like so many of the Churches of Christ that existed in the first century, is made up of people from various ethnic groups, races, ages and levels of spiritual maturity. We are a body of Christ called together for worship, teaching and service.
The Scripture says in I Corinthians 12:13; “For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body – Jews or Greeks, slaves or free – and all were made to drink of one Spirit.”
Whatever our individual gifts and abilities are, we should use them to build up this body and to glorify God. “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies – in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” I Peter 4:10-10.
In order for our spiritual body to be healthy, it must be nourished by sound teachings. The Bible, and the Bible alone, is to be our food. For Jesus said; “But he answered, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4, and, “Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you too will abide in the Son and in the Father.” I John 2:24.
Through evangelism, worship, fellowship, service and prayer, God will continue to build up "His Church" (Matthew 16:18) at White Rock and throughout the world. He will do His part if we will do our part. He will use each of us to find receptive souls, to find and to teach His word to receptive souls who will respond in obedience to His will. Brotherly affection is shown to all who are added to this congregation of the Lord’s church.
