Welcome! We're glad you're here.
At Alvaton, we believe that we all should strive to develop a strong personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We try to help our members to do that in every way that we can.
Sunday morning worship is at 9:00am followed by Bible classes for all ages at 10:15am. Sunday evenings we meet for worship at 5pm.
On Wednesday nights, we meet for worship as well as Bible class with our peer groups. This study time is a more casual setting where discussion is encouraged. There is a variety of adult classes offered including a ladies class and sign language ministry class.
There is a meal offered on Wednesday nights at 6pm. We ask that you pay $4 for individuals or $12 for a family to help cover the cost of food. An email is sent out every week to let you know what is on the menu. If you are not receiving emails from us and would like to, please click here to sign up! Email updates include all family updates and announcements and is a great way to stay informed.

Who We Are/What We Believe
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.
