As the church of Christ, we strive to practice New Testament Christianity and it is our sincere desire to be non-denominational. Our congregation in Hannibal supports itself and is independent of any other church body or group for its leadership. We believe that Jesus is our only head and we are his church. However, we work, fellowship, and give aid to other churches of Christ to help spread the gospel of Christ.
We believe that the church of Christ began in Jerusalem on the first Pentecost following the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Only teachings found in the Bible govern our beliefs and doctrines. Our only creed is Christ and his divine Sonship. We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the only begotten Son of the living God.
WHAT IS OUR
The church of Christ in Hannibal is a group of Christians striving to practice Christianity as found in the New Testament and restoring the church as it was found in the New Testament.
We wish to wear no other name than Christ’s and be known simply as Christians, members of the body of Christ, the church of Christ. We refer to ourselves as the church of Christ to identify ourselves as to be a church belonging to Christ. “The churches of Christ salute you” (Romans 16:16).
We believe that Christ is the head of the church (Eph. 1:22) and is our sole authority and it is through Jesus that each Christian can reach the Father through prayer. We teach and believe that Jesus is the only mediator between man and God (1 Timothy 2:5).
Our worship services consist of only those things we find taught and practiced in the New Testament. Our worship services are simple and consist of Prayers, Singing, Teaching (Preaching), taking the Lord’s Supper and Giving as we have been prospered. Our singing is vocal just as described in the New Testament (cf. Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16
We extend an invitation to you to attend any of our services. You will always find a warm and friendly greeting when you arrive.
We believe that the Bible teaches God's plan of salvation (2 Peter 1:3). Jesus teaches us that we must believe that He is deity i.e. The Son of God (John 8:24). He also teaches us that we must repent (Luke 13:3, 5). The Holy Spirit through Paul wrote that we must confess our allegience to the Lord Jesus (Romans 10:9-10) which entails at least a mentally "bending the knee" to His Lordship. One is baptized into Christ where His blood washes our sins away (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-4) and continues to live under the Lordship of King Jesus Christ the 2nd person of the Godhead.
