Mount Olive Church of Christ is an outreach ministry Church; it is dedicated to sowing the seed of the doctrine of Jesus Christ in this world in which we live.
The primary goal of this outreach ministry is to establish new disciples in the Body of Christ.
Mount Olive Church of Christ is a nondenominational and independent ministry and is entirely based upon the teachings of the inspired writings of the Holy Bible. We will follow no additional or man-made doctrines. We believe in the one True Church that Jesus spoke of in the Bible; that all Disciples of Christ are unified in the Body of Christ. (The Church that Jesus began).
Church is not something that you do individually it is something that you do collectively. To be a follower of Christ is not just what you do by yourself it is what you do together with other people. We are what the Bible calls the "family of God." A family is by its very nature inter-dependent. What it means to be a part of a local church is that you're inter-dependent with other people in your church. There are strong reasons why you should come to church regularly.
It Is What Jesus Did
Luke 14:6 says, "Jesus went back to Nazareth, where he'd been brought up and as usual he went to the meeting place on the Sabbath." The Bible tells us that "as usual" or another translation of the Bible says "as was His custom" Jesus went to the place of worship. This is in keeping with obeying one of the Ten Commandments which is, "Observe the Sabbath by keeping it holy." When we say we are followers of Christ, we're supposed to do what Jesus has done. What would Jesus do? Jesus would go to church and we as followers of Christ should do the same. If we take seriously our followership of Christ, then we should go to church regularly.
Mt Olive Church of Christ on Main St in Middletown CT is more than just a place for families to worship on Sunday mornings, but rather a gathering of people who have committed to walking their spiritual journeys interdependently rather than independently.
