Why do we want to follow the Bible so closely? Because we believe it is the Word of God provided to us by ancient authors God inspired through His Holy Spirit. We believe the testimony of the biblical witnesses we read in passages such as 1 Corinthians 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21. Searching and studying the Bible is emphasized by Scripture itself and expected of Christians, as we see in 1 Corinthians 3:1–2; Hebrews 5:11–14; 1 Peter 2:2. Like the Bereans in Acts 17:11, we want to search the Word of God to make sure what we say and do lines up with God’s teachings. There is no need for men to add their own practices and doctrines to what the Bible says. Because our elders recognize the importance of Bible study, our congregation has classes on Sunday morning and Wednesday night for adults, youth, and children. There is a place for you to fit in and study the Bible with us, no matter your age or life situation.

Why do you follow the Bible so closely?

How do I get to heaven?

On the night before His sacrifice on the cross, Jesus taught the disciples He was “the Way, the Truth, and the Life” and “no man comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:1-7). Only by being in Christ through baptism can we enter the place of rest He is preparing for us! The direct commands of Jesus in Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:16, the beginning of the Church in Acts 2:27–39 (as well as the other examples of conversions in Acts), and the teachings of Romans 6:1–11; 1 Corinthians 1:13–14; 12:13; Galatians 3:27 show the New Testament pattern of salvation is water baptism by for the forgiveness of sin. Before a person is baptized, they need to hear and understand the Gospel, repent and turn away from life of sin, and confess that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. This pattern is also seen in the biblical examples and teachings from the early Church (Matthew 10:32–33; Acts 2:38; 3:19; 8:37; 17:30–31; 26:20; Romans 10:9; 1 John 4:3).

How do i become part of the church?

What is the Church spoken of in the Bible and how do people become part of it? The New Testament teaches the Church is the spiritual Body of Christ. It shows a pattern of individual congregations led by elders with qualifications spelled out by God in 1 Timothy 3:1–7 and Titus 1:5–9. The Mt. Juliet congregation is independent and not part of a larger group of churches. The ministries of our congregation are led by deacons, men who meet the qualifications of 1 Timothy 3:8–13. Christians are taught throughout the New Testament to love, encourage, and support one another, show compassion to those in need, to study God’s Word, and to spread the Gospel to a lost and suffering world.
