at Mt. Juliet Church
If you're new to the Mt. Juliet - West
Wilson area or searching for a church home, we would like to take this
opportunity to invite you to visit with the Mt. Juliet Church of Christ.
We are a growing church located at 1940 North Mt. Juliet Road. We strive to serve God in all we do.
We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God and we are dedicated to
teaching its principles. In our worship services we strive to conform
to that of the early Christians as recorded in the New Testament.
Current worship times can be found here.
The word worship
means "to adore" or "to pay homage." The New Testament describes
five specific acts of worship for the Lord's church. These are:
1. Prayer - The word, which means
"a pouring out," is a significant avenue of worship. The early church
was a praying church (Acts 2:42). Prayers are to be understandable,
fervent, reverent, and with God's Holy Will in mind (I Cor. 14:15).
We pray in the name of Jesus (Jn. 14:12; 1 Tim. 2:5) to the Father (Matt.
2. Singing - This singing is to
speak, teach, and admonish (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16). It is to be done
with the whole heart (Eph. 5:19; I Cor. 14:15). The common term of
singing, psallo in no way authorizes anything but vocal praise.
It is a historical fact that instrumental music was unknown to the church
for its first 300 years!
3. Giving - The early church supported
good works through the generous giving of its members every first day of
the week (I Cor. 16:1-3). This giving is to be done cheerfully and
lovingly (2 Cor. 9:7). We are instructed to give as we have been
prospered (I Cor. 16:2).
4. Teach - Imparting the gospel
message is an essential part of worship. Paul told young Timothy
to "preach the word" (2 Tim. 4:2). This word is never to be compromised
(2 Tim. 3:16, 17)
5. The Lord's Supper - Every first
day of the week, Christians are to remember the Lord's body and blood through
the Lord's Supper (Acts 20:7). This is a simple memorial the Lord
Himself instituted (I Cor. 11:23-29). We are taught to concentrate
on the cross, and our Lord's great sacrifice for us.
You will find all of
these items of worship included in our praise to Him at the Mt. Juliet
church. We strive to be disciplined with our time of praise, and
so you can plan on each worship service lasting right at one hour.
In addition to our worship services, we
offer many other activities for the whole family. These include,
bible classes, an active youth ministry, missions, a benevolence program
and many other activities. More information about these programs
can be found here.
You will not be embarrassed
When you come
to worship with us at Mt. Juliet Church of Christ, we promise not to embarrass
you, nor harass you in any way. We simply want to share the world's
greatest message: God loves us so much that He gave His Son for us
on a cruel Roman cross. We all need Him to be saved.
Come and share a simple,
but scriptural and loving experience of worship, devotion, and study.
Come and see at the Mt. Juliet Church of Christ!
