The North Shelby Church of Christ is a non-denominational, non-institutional congregation of believers in Christ. We pattern ourselves after the New Testament church of the first century, striving to be the Church that God established.
We are an independent congregation with no earthly headquarters of any kind. Christ is the head of the church, and he rules and directs the church through his word. (Col. 1:18; II Tim. 3:16–17). Christ is our only spiritual authority
(Ephesians 1:22–23; 4:14–16, 5:23). Our Allegiance to the Lordship of Christ moves us to speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where it is silent. We do not follow any human creed. The Bible is our only guide (I Cor. 4:6; I Pet. 4:11).
We believe there are necessary components to one’s addition to His church.
Those components are:
hearing the gospel, believing, repenting of sin, confessing that Jesus is the Son of God, being baptized in water for the forgiveness of sins and going on to live a life pleasing to God.
Our worship is simple because it is based on the New Testament. Prayers are led by men of the church and congregational singing allows each to make melody in his heart unto God. (Eph. 5:19). Observance of the Lord’s Supper “upon the first day of the week” shows the Lord’s death until He comes again (Acts 20:7; I Cor. 11:26).
No solicitation for money is made. We engage in no church socials or recreational affairs to entertain nor to raise funds. Christians contribute only on the first day of the week (I Cor. 16:1–2).
