We are a group of Christians that believe everything we do religiously must be
based on the Bible and the Bible alone. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God
and he is our risen Saviour.
What to expect at Madurai Church of Christ
We invite you to worship with us and pray that you will feel comfortable and
welcome. We hope that you will be impressed by the simplicity of our services,
our reverence for the scriptures, and the love and friendliness of our members.
Our worship is simple and Biblical
All that we do is governed by the Word of God and we observe only those things
contained in it. We attempt to duplicate the pattern of the early New Testament
church in everything that we do.
Our worship in song is vocal only. No instruments of music are used. We only
"sing and make melody in the heart" (Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16). We
believe that it would be an addition to God's word if we added instruments of
Our classes and sermons are to instruct and encourage in the ways of
righteousness. The scriptures are complete and furnish us completely in every
good work (II Timothy 3:16,17).
The collection or contribution, is taken only on Sunday. Each one is to give of
his means as he has been prospered and purposes in his heart (I Corinthians
16:2; II Corinthians 9:7). It is voluntary and is used for the Lord's work.
The Lord's Supper
The communion, as it is also called, is observed in memory of Christ. The men
at the table will pray and give thanks for the bread and then it is passed to
everyone in the audience. The same procedure will be followed for the fruit of
the vine. This is observed every first day of the week by the congregation.
This is based on the example given to us (I Corinthians 11:23,24; Acts 20:6,7).
The prayers are designed to praise and honor God and to thank him for His
Blessings as well as request his continued care over us.
God's Plan of Redemption
We believe the Bible has given us very simple, clear-cut steps to follow in
order to have our sins washed away.
Hear God's Word
|Believe Jesus is God's Son
|Repent of your sins
|Confess your faith in Jesus
|Wash away your sins by baptism
|Remain faithful unto death
||II Timothy 4:7
Come work with us
There is so much to do! Our ability to help others and spread the gospel is
only limited by our resources. If you want to worship with a friendly, loving
group of other Christians whose only goal is to spend eternity in heaven,
please come and visit us!
