The Marrtown church of Christ in Parkersburg, West Virginia is a nondenominational group of Christians. We seek to be a Bible centered group of disciples looking to Jesus as our Lord. Because of this we seek to follow the Bible alone, while “proving and testing all things”.
What We Believe
We are not a denomination. We are simply Christians. We are members of Christ’s body. Ephesians 4:1-6 explains that all are to be one, not to be divided into different denominations.
The Bible is our only guide. We use no additional creeds that are made by man. Revelation 22:18-19 explains that we are not to add to the Bible or take from it. We only use the wonderful book that was inspired by God.
Christ is the head of our church. Colossians 1:18 shows that Christ is the head. According to the Word of God, elders and deacons can also be appointed (if qualifications are met) only to “feed the flock”.
We follow after the New Testament church. We try to walk in the footsteps the church of the New Testament. We strive to be the “seed of the kingdom” (Luke 8:11).
We worship only how instituted in the Bible. We work to do our best to worship in “spirit and in truth” (John 4:22-23). The elements of our worship include prayer, preaching, singing (everyone sings without instrumental music), the Lord’s Supper (every first day of the week), and giving to the church.
