Worship is a privilege which God has given us to express our deep adoration for His love, mercy, and power. We take seriously the opportunity we have to worship together. It is our pleasure to welcome you to these services. We want you to know what we are doing in these periods of worship.
Acapella, congregational singing is one feature of worship which God desires. The New Testament teaches us to sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to edify each other and glorify God and Christ (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16). Our song director will announce the selections he chooses and you can find them in our book, Hymns for Worship.
Prayer will be offered by one of the men, as he leads and directs all of our thoughts together (1 Timothy 2:1-
A collection will be taken from our members as a means of supporting our work. Early Christians did this each Sunday, too (1 Corinthians 16:1,2). Visitors are under no obligation whatsoever to contribute to this collection.
The Lord’s Supper will be offered to all Christians in memory of the death and sacrifice of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 11:23-
A sermon will be preached that exalts the Word of God above the will of man. The speaker will point us again and again to the Scriptures as the inerrant, infallible word of God (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). You are encouraged to use your own Bible and follow along. At the conclusion of the sermon, anyone wishing to become a Christian, or Christians desiring the prayers of the church will be given opportunity to do so.
We always welcome questions, so feel free to ask! If there is something about your experience here you want us to explain in more detail, we will be happy to do so.
The Work of the Church
Today, it seems like religion is more and more about “big business”. Although we are fairly large in number, we do nothing out of a desire to pump up the attendance figures. You won’t find gimmicks here. There are no theatrics, nor do we put our visitors on the spot (like some who make their visitors stand and give their names). You will not be embarrassed, and we won’t do anything that will frighten you (no screaming or carrying on). For more on what to expect at our services,please read the information in the left column.
The church at Fry Road has the aim of doing only that for which God has given her authority. Many churches become political action movements; child care facilities; or social gratification organizations. Whatever happened to the Lord’s design for the church? The church at Fry Road simply wants to be what the Lord made her to be. The work of the church here is simply threefold: Evangelism, Edification, and Benevolence.
We not only preach the gospel in our own community, but also support other men as they proclaim the word. Whether here in the US, or in countries abroad, we have a desire to see that the life-
Edification is the spiritual building up of the body. This is accomplished through a study and teaching of God’s word. Unfortunately, many churches today have drawn the conclusion that cake and coffee are an adequate means of edification. In the New Testament church, edification was accomplished by speaking (I Corinthians 14:3-
The New Testament church engaged in benevolence. Needy saints were often found in the hard times created by social exclusion, political unrest and natural disasters. Time and time again, the church came to the aid of saints who were lacking (e.g. Acts 11:27-
If you want to be involved in a work that wants nothing more than to do it God’s way, then examine us a little more closely. Sit down with our evangelist and find out more about what we believe and teach. See if you aren’t given book, chapter and verse for all we do.
