Who We Are:
We are a group of Christians that live in Kent and its surrounding communities. Our group is diverse with regard to professional occupations, incomes, education and religious backgrounds. However, we are unified by our common identity as Christians, since we share a common fellowship with Jesus Christ. For this reason, we work together to preach His gospel, serve His people, and support His work through personal, spiritual, and financial contributions. Each of our members is dedicated to this particular congregation, even though we are supportive of Christians everywhere.
Our congregation’s objective is to promote discipleship in a manner that is both biblical and practical. A “disciple” is defined as a student of a master teacher. In our case, our Master is Christ, and we are His students and servants (John 13:13). We strive to follow His Word (the gospel of Christ) in order to more closely identify with Him (Matthew 10:24). We believe Christ’s Word to be the only authority for what we do in His name; we appeal to no other authority. Therefore, we use this authority to determine how a person becomes a Christian, the life he (or she) is to lead thereafter, and all other matters concerning one’s service to Christ.
Our congregation is merely a small group of believers. In contrast, Christ’s church
is greater in scope than any of us can know. The New Testament defines this universal
body of Christ as a spiritual organization with Christ at its head (Ephesians 1:22-
We assemble twice every Sunday for Bible studies and collective worship services. We also meet on Wednesday for a midweek Bible study. Our times are as follows:
Sunday morning Bible study (for all ages): 9:30 a.m.
Sunday morning assembly: 10:30 a.m.
Sunday evening assembly: 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday evening Bible classes (for all ages): 7:00 p.m.
At times, we also offer additional classes or studies during the week that are open to visitors.
What to Expect When You Visit Us
Our Worship to God: We meet collectively on the first day of the week (Sunday) to worship God, partake of communion, sing songs to praise God and encourage one another, give a monetary offering, hear lessons from God’s Word, and “stimulate one another to love and good deeds” (Hebrews 10:24). Throughout this time of assembly, we pray to God for spiritual direction, for His forgiveness, and that He would receive our worship.
Since God is holy and all-
Biblical Teaching: The purpose of our sermons and classes is to teach God’s word,
the Bible (2 Timothy 2:2). We believe that these Scriptures are sufficient for all
that is required for life with God and a righteous conduct with one another (2 Timothy
Bible Classes for All Ages: We offer Bible classes for all ages beginning at three years of age. This gives each person an opportunity to study the Bible with others in like age groups. The intention of our studies is to convey “the whole purpose of God” (Acts 20:25) without bias, prejudice, partiality, or denominational influence.
Communion: As directed by Jesus (Matthew 26:26-
Congregational Singing: We engage in congregational singing at every service (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16). This gives everyone an opportunity to participate in praise to God and edification of one another. We understand this to be an act of fellowship that is made possible by the participation of all members equally in a collective experience. Thus, we do not use instrumental music or separate choirs as an accompaniment to or replacement for our singing.
No solicitations: According to the pattern found in Scripture, we take up a monetary
collection on “first day of the week” (1 Corinthians 16:1-
