…, 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)
… Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is one. ‘And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. “And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:29-31 NKJV)
… Welcome to the Roxboro church of Christ.

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 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 unforgiven sin, free from man’s traditions which continue in their varied influences 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)
