Who We Are:
First Christian Church of Chiefland is a non-denominational body of believers who have no creed but Christ, no book but the Bible, and wear no other name but Christian.
We believe that Christ is the head of His Church and; therefore, every Christian is part of His body and a partner in ministry. We do not believe that we are the only Christians, but earnestly strive to be "Christians only." We seek to speak where the Bible speaks and to remain silent where the Bible is silent. We take the Bible and the Bible alone as our only rule of faith and practice.
We seek the unity of Christians based upon the essentials of Christianity as found in the New Testament. The goal of this spiritual unity is that we might have a more powerful testimony for Christ in this world (See John 17:20-21).
This requires a diligent search for truth. It requires that we study the Scriptures to know what God would require of us. It does not mean that this congregation has all the answers. It does mean that all of us must always be a part of the search for truth. First Christian Church of Chiefland does not follow a man-made creed or statement of faith. Rather, we seek to be obedient to Christ and His will for us on the basis of the Scriptures alone.
We seek unity with other Christians in what is essential and allow for differences in matters of opinion. You will, however, find us giving a primary place to certain key elements of the Christian faith.
We want to encourage you to consider making First Christian Church of Chiefland your church home where you can serve and grow as a Christian.
* We teach that we are saved from our sins by God's grace, through faith in Jesus Christ. We must believe that Jesus is God's son, that He died on the Cross for our sins and rose again from the grave. We must claim Him as the Lord of our lives, repent of our sins, and follow Him in Christian baptism (See John 3:16; Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38).
* We practice baptism of believers by immersion because it is the mode of baptism practiced in the New Testament. Baptism by immersion gives us a representation of the importance of Christ's death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:3-8).
* We share in the weekly observance of the Lord's Supper. We see the communion service as a remembrance of the death of Jesus for our sins, and a celebration of His living presence with us (Acts 2:42; 20-7).
* Our entire reason for being is the fulfillment of Jesus' command to "make disciples of all nations." (Matthew 28:18-20).
* The Bible finds a primary place in the Lord's church. It is here that we learn of what God has done for us, and how we, in turn, are to relate to Him. The Bible is inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16) and serves as our rule for what we believe and practice.
* We teach that all Christians are to grow to maturity as disciples of Jesus Christ. The fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) should characterize one who has a growing and vital relationship with God.
We invite you to join with us as we seek to serve our Lord and to become all that He would have us to be!
