…, whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10:31 NKJV). … And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13 NKJV) … Welcome to the Roxboro church of Christ. Here you may find our worship services and assemblies different from those you may have attended elsewhere. By scriptural design, (command-example-necessary inference) the Lord’s local worship assemblies are not to be governed by “others” (outside the local church), but each group of brethren independently strive to “do all to the glory of God” with “love”. So when they had appointed elders in every church, and prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord in whom they had believed. (Acts 14:23 NKJV) Christ is the “head” of the church, “And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. (Ephesians 1:22-23 NKJV) The OT (Old Testament) is foundational, it is where we identify NT (New Testament) teaching prior to NT scripture. Therefore the (OT) law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith (Galatians 3:24 NKJV). All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (2 Timothy 3:16 KJV). By inspiration / God Breathed. The law (OT) has brought the believer, the faithful, the obedient, to Christ that we might be justified by faith (Galatians 3:24 NKJV). The Apostle Paul ties this all together so well with these inspired words, “Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy scriptures, the gospel concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and designated Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, (Romans 1:1-5 RSV) now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13 NKJV) Faith, without hope is not faith. Hope without faith is not hope. Faith & Hope without Love is not Love. Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. (Colossians 3:12-14 RSV) Welcome to the Roxboro church of Christ where we teach from inspired (God breathed) scripture. Here you will find Faith, Hope, and Love which will guide you to a reconciliation with the Lord of Lords and King of Kings. since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (Romans 3:23 RSV). …, “Thou art my beloved Son; with Thee I am well pleased.” (Mark 1:11 RSV) To be “well pleasing to God” in Faith, Hope, Love, doing “all to the glory of God”. This is the Roxboro church of Christ. It is who we strive to be, recognizing we “all fall short of His glory“. It is a journey of reconciliation, one brought about by hearing the Word, believing in the Son of God, Jesus our Lord. … Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. (Acts 2:37-39 KJV) The desire to be “reconciled,” having heard the word, believing in the Son of God, Jesus our Lord, pricked their heart, “what shall we do” Repent and be baptized, For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. (Galatians 3:27 KJV). “… be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. (Revelation 2:10 KJV)
