(Philippians 3:8-10) Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, (NKJV)

(Colossians 2:9-13) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven youall trespasses, (NKJV)

When visiting …
What you expect may differ from what you experience.
We often base our expectations on previous experiences, that includes church experiences.
(John 3:16-18) “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (NKJV)
In the first century, no one expected Jesus Christ as Savior of the World. Today few focus on the only begotten Son of God. He is our focus, His Word, His Teaching, His Mission—”should not perish but have everlasting life.” His forgiveness for all.
We meet on Sunday, the first day of the week. Early, first century Christians, met the first day of the week. Our Bible studies vary sufficiently to study the entire scripture from Genesis to Revelation. This takes time. You may visit in the middle of a particular study. We get to it all in due time.
Our Sunday Worship Assembly includes a lesson (sermon) from God’s Word. We sing hymns, pray for one another, take up a collection for the work of the church (this is specifically a work of the local membership, visitors are not obligated). Each Sunday Worship Assembly we offer the Lord’s Supper (communion). Each of these acts of worship we find scriptural support for in the New Testament. By example, command and/or necessary inference, the Bible directs our Worship.
Our guide is God’s inspired Word.
(1 Timothy 3:16) And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory. (NKJV)
When you visit, if you expect today’s worldly version of “church” you will be pleasantly surprised with your visit.
First century Christians worshiped differently than today’s worldly church goers. The truth truly will set one free. Free from the weight of man’s “church” traditions, we follow “apostolic” traditions. The “first century apostles” offer true Godly influence on those seeking God’s truth.
“Show me in the Bible, show me in God’s Word, why you do what you do in “church”. If you are unable to do so; book, chapter, and verse, then whose church are you presenting to the lost of this world. … yours or Christ’?” Wayne Sinquefield—Minister
(Ephesians 1:22) And He put all things under His (Christ) feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the (one) church, (NKJV)
(Colossians 1:18) And He (Christ) is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. (NKJV)
