About Farewell Avenue Christian Church
Farewell Avenue Christian Church is a congregation of Bible-believing people striving to put Jesus first in every area of life. We exist as an independent fellowship and desire to simply be known as Christians.
We believe that Jesus the Christ is the Head of His Church, and that every Christian is a part of His Body. We do not believe we are the only Christians, but our priority is to be Christians only. We plan to speak where the Bible speaks, and remain silent where the Bible is silent. We take the Bible as our single rule of faith and practice.
Because salvation made one a member of the original New Testament Church we read about in the Bible, we follow that pattern. We refuse to impose more on people than the Word of God asks to be a Christian, and we require no less than the Word of God requires.
Therefore, membership here requires that you believe in Jesus the Christ as God's Son, and be obedient in Christian baptism (through immersion), which (according to scripture) is the burial of a penitent believer in water.
Jesus said, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that command you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20)
This is why we make disciples. This is why we baptize (through immersion), and this is why we continue to teach.
We welcome you to our services. If you live in our vicinity, we cordially invite you to be a regular part of our local fellowship as we worship and serve Jesus, our Lord. God has created an environment for all living things. He made the world so that every creature could find food, comfort, and protection. He provided His Church as the nurturing environment for fellowship and benefit of those who are “born again.” Jesus is interested in you, and so are we.
