I’M NEW HERE
WHERE AND HOW TO START
WHERE AND HOW TO START
Hello and welcome to our church website, it’s always a real joy for us to meet and have new members in our church family. Here you will find useful information about who we are and what we believe.
At Alvaton, we are not brought together by any illusion of our perfection or righteousness. We have been brought together by our recognition that we are sinners in need of the cleansing blood of Jesus. This is the reason we can worship together, stick together and with Gods help, accomplish some things that make a difference in this world we live in.
It’s time to take a bold step of faith out of your comfort zone and discover what God has for you. Wherever you are on your journey, regardless of where you fall on the deep questions of faith, our community is open to you.
Sunday morning worship:
This is our main weekly meeting for our congregation. During this time, we take the Lord’s Supper together, sing, and listen to God’s Word being preached. This is our largest meeting of the week, and many people’s first visit our church by coming to our Sunday A.M. Worship.
Sunday evening worship 5:30pm:
Sunday nights we come together for a short devotional and then gather in smaller groups called Connection Groups. In our Connection Groups, we discuss the lesson from Sunday morning, share prayer requests, and get to know each other better. The Lord’s Supper is offered for those who were unable to attend morning worship.
Wednesday evening Bible study 7pm:
We hope you’ll join us to learn more about God during these midweek services. There are classes for all ages of kids. Teenagers have their own class and there are several adult classes.
9 a.m. – Worship
10:15 a.m. – Bible classes for all ages
5:30 p. m. – Every Sunday evening we will have a service at which the Lord’s Supper is offered for those who were unable to attend in the morning.
7 p.m. – Bible classes for all ages
You may wear whatever you want. Some people who wear suits and ties. Some wear slacks and a button shirt. And some people wear jeans and t-shirts. It’s important to remember that God looks at the soul, not at the outfit.
Our Sunday worship services have an average of 275 people in attendance. Sometimes as low as 230 and as high as 300. We have plenty of room for you and your family!
We do bring an offering, but it is for our members and regular attendees. If you are a visitor/guest, please do not feel obligated to give.
We are Christians. Christians just like those first century disciples of Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed” (John 8:31). We seek only to follow the words and instructions of Jesus and the inspired men who wrote the Bible. Doing this means that we are an independent and autonomous church. It means we worship like first century Christians did. It means we believe and practice what the New Testament church believed and practiced. We seek to maintain the unity of the faith as presented by Jesus Christ and the apostles (Ephesians 4:3,13; cf Jude 1:3).
We are a spiritual family. We share a common relationship to God as “sons and daughters” (2 Corinthians 6:18). Because of this relationship, we sustain a common kinship to one another, and strive diligently to be “kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another” (Romans 12:10).
We are not perfect, nor do we pretend to be. We do strive for perfection (Matthew 5:48; Hebrews 6:1) in the biblical sense of seeking spiritual maturity.
The Bible. We believe the Scriptures (The Bible) to be the inspired word of Jehovah God. We accept and submit to the Bible as our sole standard of authority (Colossians 3:17; 1 Peter 4:11). While we do not pretend that we know the answer to every question, we do believe that all things pertaining to life and godliness have been revealed to us in the word of God (2 Peter 1:3). We believe that we must search the scriptures for the answers. We ask everyone to be like the Bereans of Acts 17:11 – to search the scriptures daily to see if what we are teaching is according to the revealed word of God. Because of our unshakable belief that the Bible instructs us to “every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17), we are committed to speaking out upon the moral, ethical, and religious issues of our times.
