OUR SERVICES

We offer two services each Sunday, a traditional service at 9:15 am and a contemporary service at 10:30 am. During our 10:30 service, we have Children's Ministry classes for Nursery - 4th Grade. If you are bringing a child, we recommend that you arrive 10-15 minutes before the service begins to get your child checked in and to their age appropriate class. If you are a first time guest, please be sure to stop by our Welcome Center for a gift and information about our church and it's ministries.  At JCC, it's not about where you've been but where you're going! We invite you to join us Sunday!

WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

The Bible

The Bible is our authority here at the Jamestown Church of Christ. The Old and New Testaments are the
inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16). The Bible is our standard as Christians in all we believe, say, and do. We
plead for the union of all Christians on the Bible alone.

God

God is the eternal, sovereign Creator and Ruler of the universe (Genesis 1:1; 1 Timothy 6:15). He is our holy,
loving, heavenly Father. As our personal, heavenly Father, God loves and cares deeply for each of us (John 3:16).
God has made himself known through His creation, the Bible, and supremely in Jesus (Psalm 19; John 1:18). God
has revealed himself to us as three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).

Jesus

Jesus is the Son of God and God in the flesh (Matthew 16:16; John 1:14). He was born of the virgin Mary.
He worked miracles and fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies concerning the Messiah. Jesus died for our sins on
the cross and was raised from the grave (Romans 4:25; 1 Peter 3:18). Jesus now reigns at the right
hand of God (Romans 8:34). He will return to earth in the future to be the Savior and Judge of all humankind.
(Hebrews 9:28; Acts 17:31).

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit dwells within each Christian as a comforter, counselor, teacher, and encourager
(John 14:26, 15:26, 16:8, 13). God’s Spirit convicts us of sin, empowers us to be holy, equips us with spiritual gifts
for Christian living.  (1 Corinthians 12:7; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18; Ephesians 1:13-14).

Sin

People are created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). We have rebelled against
God’s design for our lives by our own free choice. Our sinful rebellion separates us from God and leads to spiritual
death (Romans 6:23). God, in his grace, offers salvation through Jesus to all sinners who would accept this free gift
(Romans 3:23-24, 5:8; Ephesians 2:8). We accept God’s gift of salvation by: Believing in Jesus as God’s Son (Acts
16:31); Confessing Jesus as Lord (Romans 10:9); Repenting of sin (Acts 3:19); and being Baptized by immersion
for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38). Those who follow this Biblical plan can have the assurance of God’s salvation (1 John 5:13).

Baptism

We practice believer’s baptism by immersion. In baptism, new Christians are promised God’s gifts of the
forgiveness of sin and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-5; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 3:21).

The Lord’s Supper

We celebrate the Lord’s Supper each week in memory of Christ’s death and resurrection (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26). All Christians are welcome to share in time of communion. 

The Church

The Church is the Body of Christ composed of Christians around the world (1 Corinthians 12:12-13, 27). The Church changes the world through prayer, the preaching of the gospel of Christ, and through loving witness and service performed in Jesus’ name.
