We have hundreds of congregations in the United States and around the world. Many of our congregations meet in rented halls because we focus first on proclaiming the gospel to the world and providing congregational support through caring pastors.
Bring your Bible and read along with us
We encourage everyone to bring a Bible with them and follow along. Our pastors typically use the New King James Version in preparing sermons, although many different versions are referenced when useful.
We open and close our services with prayer
We seek God’s guidance in all we do—especially in worshiping Him! The congregation is first led in a short prayer, asking for God’s guidance and inspiration on the service.
We worship God with music and singing
Our services include opportunities for singing Christian hymns and music.
And, musicians in the congregation often perform vocal or instrumental selections in honor of God.
We preach straight from the Bible
We normally present two Bible-focused messages in each service that show how to live God’s way of life.
The sermonette is about 15 minutes long, followed by a sermon that runs up to an hour. Sometimes if the pastor is traveling, a pre-recorded message or live webcast may be offered.
We have special Bible classes for children and teens
Many congregations have volunteers who teach Christian principles in a fun and interactive environment. We provide workbooks and study guides for children and teens online as well.
Come join our family-oriented fellowship and worship
While many congregations do have classes for teens and children, we do not have a separate service for them. We encourage the whole family to sit together for services to learn and worship God together. Parent rooms for nursing or for putting a child down for a nap are available. Ask the local pastor if you need help.
Eating together is a great way to grow closer and enjoy a good time every Sabbath. Most congregations share snacks or even meals before or after services.
Many congregations offer social events like potlucks, game nights and sporting events. The Church is a family, and families grow when they spend time together.
