About James Avenue
When we think of church, we all probably think very different things. Some people might have good thoughts about church, and others may not have a very good impression. But the very first church started right after Jesus went up to Heaven, and as Christians, we are supposed to model ourselves after that church. The Bible says this about the people in that first church:
"They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer...Selling their property and possessions, they gave to any as he had need. Day by day they continued to meet together." (Acts 2:42, 45-46)
What We Believe:
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who became a man on earth, was crucified for our sins and was risen from the dead. It is through this that all men may be saved. We teach that baptism is essential for eternal life, representing the death, burial, and rising from the dead of our Savior and Lord. We teach the Bible as the foundation to what we believe, what our faith is built upon.
What We Offer:
The Bible tells us that the early church was a group of people who spent time together learning about God. They took care of each other, and they ate together, and they liked geting together because even though they were different, they were all the same in Christ. We want to be a church that tries to be like the first century church, a church where there is love and acceptance, a church where people are excited to go because they can learn things that will change their lives. We want to provide a church home that takes care of its members and teaches them the good news of the Gospel without passing judgement. With God's blessing, we are trying our best to be this church. We hope you will come join us and learn more about God's love and the plan that He has for you.
