WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. We believe that God gave His words to various men throughout history, and His words were written and passed down for us to learn from and follow.
The church that Jesus established is governed first and foremost by God. His word is our final authority for all that we do, both as a congregation, and in our lives as Christians. The Lord set up elders and deacons to lead and serve the congregation. While you might not see all of these men in a public role on Sunday or Wednesday during services, they are the ones leading us, praying for us, and shepherding us as we strive to be who Christ wants us to be.
The vision of the eldership is to have the congregation mature to a faithful, vibrant, spiritual, and loving family of God.
Our mission is to introduce Christ and His way of living to everyone outside and inside the Church in every circumstance; so that they will have a chance for Christ to mature in their life. We must have His smile on our face and his love in our hearts. Our actions and words must reflect His kindness and gentleness so that His way of living is evident in us. In order for the church of Christ in Waurika to truly be God’s family, our lives must reflect Jesus.
Live His life, Speak his language, Glorify God.
"And He gave to the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, buy craftiness in deceitful schemes.
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into Him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love."
