About Us

At the East Peoria church of Christ, our desire is to continually restore ourselves to New Testament Christianity and refuse to hold human creeds as a test of faith or fellowship. We claim to be Christians only and adhere to no doctrine other than what is expressly taught in the New Testament Scriptures.

Our weekly assembly includes elements of praising God and edifying one another in song, prayer, The Lord's Supper, collections for ministry, and the proclamation of God's word.

What We Believe

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and that it holds all the instruction we need for this life (James 1:22). We strive to remain as close as possible to the teachings of Christ as they are the words of eternal life (John 6:67-68).

 

 

Baptism

We believe that to follow Christ, you must turn away from your sins (repent), confess Christ as your savior, and be born again through baptism (Acts 2:14-39). Christ calls us to be baptized so that we may receive the forgiveness of our sins. Baptism symbolizes being washed in the blood of Christ, dying with him, being buried, and born again into a new life (Romans 6:3-4). We follow the Bible in order to understand how we should live our lives (Galatians 2:20)

 

Communion

On the first day of every week, we meet together to worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. During this time we take communion in order to remember the body and the blood of Christ which was sacrificed for our sins (Luke 22:19; I Corinthians 11:26).

 

Worship

We believe that God calls us to worship him with our hearts and our voices. As such, we choose to worship without instruments (A Capella) and allow our voices and our hearts to lift up God in our praises.
