WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE WORSHIP AT ALVATON CHURCH OF CHRIST?
We are a diverse group of people, coming from various backgrounds, coming from all parts of the community. Our membership is at different stages of knowledge and spiritual growth.
We don’t know everything. We don’t do everything right. We try to treat others as we want to be treated, but sometimes we fail. We are on a journey through an earthly life on our way to a spiritual eternity.
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.
Mark 2:17 Romans 5: 6 ~ 9 Ephesians 1:7 1 John 1:7
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.
You won’t look far to find our failures, but the bottom line is, you will find people who love Jesus, love God’s word and love each other, as we serve the Savior and love the lost.[/vc_column_text]

WE STRIVE TO BE
[vc_column_text]A place where a person with no church background can come and feel comfortable and enjoy the service because the atmosphere will be friendly. The sermons are always practical, biblical and relevant.
A church that is fun for the entire family, a church where kids want to go because they have a great time experiencing God’s love. A church that builds families.
A church that helps every member find their ministry and lets them use their gifts and abilities to meet other’s needs. We believe the church is at her best when the doors are open to all of who have an interest in learning about God’s word. Wherever you are on your journey, regardless of where you fall on the deep questions of faith, our community is open to you.[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row video_fullscreen=”true” video_url=”” video_type=”video/youtube”][vc_column]
