||OCTOBER 2013 UPDATE:
What Does 'A First Century Church' Mean?
If you've ever read the Acts of the Apostles (a New Testament book),
you've noticed that the early followers of Christ were a lot different than
the majority of those who call themselves Christians today. They took the
Great Commission very seriously, even to the point of sacrificing their
own lives to bring others the good news of the gospel. They met in
homes, not majestic cathedrals. They believed in the power of healing
and even raised people from the dead, as Jesus said they would. They
were filled with the Holy Spirit and, in general, walked in a great spiritual
Although we are several years into the twenty-first century, we have
purposed to become more like the early church. We meet for both Bible
Study and Worship Service. At this time, we meet in the Plantation home
of our founder, Harriet Bond. All are invited to come fellowship with us.
No stuffed shirts or fashion shows; no rigid traditions or pomp &
circumstance. Come as you are!
The Modern Church
By no means are we against modern churches, on the contrary. We
would like to see the 'End Times Church' spoken of in the book of
Revelation come to pass. We believe most pastors and other church
leaders want to follow as the Spirit leads them but have gotten caught up
in church politics and the art of pleasing people more than pleasing God.
Our goal is to assist other churches in stepping into the will of God and
following the lead of the Holy Spirit.
We must get away from counting games, as if the number of people in
the pews signifies how spiritual a church may be. We must begin to take
the Gospel message to the streets; witnessing to Muslims and Jews,
Jehovah's Witnesses and Latter Day Saints, Hindus and the unchurched
alike. With no concern about what church building they may attend
afterward. Our focus must be on bringing them to Christ, then
encouraging them to fellowship with believers anywhere they can be
properly discipled so they can grow spiritually. Disciple them so they
can, in turn, disciple others.
On This Website
On this website you will find many tools that will minister both to those
who have not accepted Christ as their personal Savior and to those who
have. Whether you're just curious about Jesus or a believer looking to
increase your knowledge of the things of God we've got plenty of content
for you. Our 'Bible Studies' page contains not only our last month of bible
studies but also an archive containing almost two years of weekly bible
studies. The 'Witnessing' page contain tips on how to witness to specific
groups of people. It also contains links to other websites that can help
do the same. Our 'Links' page is loaded with great sites. Those that
stream audio / video and real-time Christian Network programming are
just a few. The 'Sermons' page is fairly new and contains recent sermon
notes and will eventually archive them. Take a look around the site, you'll
find it very user friendly!
Leading lost souls to Christ, then teaching them to walk in all the
blessings and power afforded to a child of God. Also, to disciple them in
a way that prepares and encourages them to disciple others.
To create a place where people can come to have their physical needs
met while their spiritual growth is being fostered. Our founder has
envisioned a complex where individuals, single parents and struggling
families can be taught biblical principles that will help establish a firm
foundation; spiritually, relationally, and financially.
