CHURCH OF CHRIST?

Just what is the Church of Christ and who are these people?  These are two very good questions which you may be asking yourself.    Please allow us a few moments to introduce you to our spiritual “family of God”  (Ephesians 3:15) which has over 2 million family members on earth and countless more in Heaven.

 

 

OUR CHURCH HISTORY (UNIVERSAL)

“Upon this rock I will build my church…”             Matthew 16:18

Prophesied in the Old testament about its coming (Isaiah 2:2-3, Micah 4:1-2, and Daniel 2:44), foretold and taught by Jesus Christ himself and purchased by his own blood (Matthew 16:18, Luke 24:47-49, and Acts 20:28), the Church of Christ was founded and established on the first Pentecost after the resurrection of Jesus Christ in A.D. 33.

Approximately three thousand souls (Acts 2:41) were saved and added to the Lord’s church on that “opening day” and his earthly kingdom has been in operation ever since the beginning (Acts 11:15).   It is referred to in scriptures as the “Church of Christ” (Romans 16:16) because the church belongs to Christ who, by the will of God, is its head and has all the preeminence and authority (Colossians 1:18).   Note:  “Berlin Heights” is the geographical name and location where the “Church of Christ” regularly meets but the scriptural name is the “Church of Christ.”

 

 

OUR CHURCH HISTORY (LOCAL)

We’ve come this far by Faith! 

{Celebrating 9 years on Sunday, November 12, 2017}

The Berlin Heights Church of Christ in Evansville, Indiana was the brainchild of its current minister and founder, Don P.  DeJarnett who transferred his vision into reality on Sunday, August 31, 2008, when the doors of the congregation were officially opened for spiritual business.  In an age where planting new churches of Christ (congregations) isn’t popular anymore especially with young preachers, Don, along with the help of a small group, accepted the tremendous challenges and sacrifices, and launched into the deep.

Eleven people; (Don and Barbara DeJarnett, Patricia DeJarnett, Lydia DeJarnett, Donnelle, Sheila and Michaela Armstrong, Jessie Mitchell, James and Dana Frantz and Mary Collins) were present on that first Sunday for Bible class and worship but many others have been baptized (immersion – Romans 6:3 and 4) and added during our nearly 9 year history through sound doctrinal teaching, discipleship, evangelistic and benevolent efforts.

Currently our congregation has a total membership of 111 people and an average weekly attendance ranging anywhere from 50 to 75 or more  faithful and committed individuals (true worshipers) who realize the importance of congregating and assembling together for weekly Bible classes and worship celebrations  (Hebrews 10:25 and John 4:23).
