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.
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)
