Is it possible to find a church that worships Jesus Christ in the same way Pre-Denominational Christians did almost 2000 years ago that is not part of any denomination or organized religious group? While it may seem impossible, the answer is ABSOLUTELY!


Think about it - When Jesus sent out His Apostles to preach the gospel and to establish His church, did they establish 12 different churches with 12 different doctrines - or did they establish only one and the same church each teaching the same doctrine? Of course the answer is the same church teaching the same doctrine. It would be centuries before denominational Christianity which is the apostasy the Apostles warned of, began to gain acceptance.


The Law of Sowing and Reaping created by God in the beginning (Genesis 1:11-12), continues to apply today both physically and spiritually. A tomatoe seed still produces a tomatoe plant that produces tomatoes. Every farmer depends upon this law so that they are not surprised what type of fruit they will reap. The same is true of the church. Jesus said that the 'seed' is the Word of God (Luke 8:11), and when planted in the right type of soil (Heart), it will produce the SAME fruit everytime - a Pre-denominational Christian and only a Pre-Denominational Christian, who is added by God to one and the same church the Apostles established in the first century - the church of Christ (Acts 2:47).


We at the Heartland church of Christ wish to invite you to visit our services and study the Word of God with us on Sundays and Wednesdays. We admit that you will not find anything formal, or sophisticated. Our purpose is quite simple - to worship our God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24), and to help others truly know Him.


Our worship services are the same as those you read of in the New Testament: We sing acappella songs of praise to God (Ephesians 5:19); we pray (Acts 4:24); we memorialize the Lord's death EVERY First Day of the week as He commanded (Matthew 26:26-29), and we give as we have prospered (1 Corinthians 16:1-2). We also teach and preach from the Bible only - no creed books, church manuals or catechisms (2 Timothy 3:16-17).


As New Testament (Pre-Denominational) Christians, we are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, because we realize that it ALONE is the power of God to lead us to the salvation of our souls (Romans 1:16; 6:17; Hebrews 5:9).


If the simply, obvious truth of the Scriptures and freedom from denominational (apostasy) appeals to you, we hope you will investigate further the Lord's plea for religious unity, to be of ONE MIND, to Believe and teach the SAME DOCTRINE (John 17:20-21; 1 Corinthians 1:10; Philippians 3:16).


Our plea stands or falls by the claim that we can supply "Book, Chapter and Verse" for ALL that we teach and practice.


We are always open to answer any Bible question. Please come study God's Word with us, and let us strive to obey our God by being of the same mind.
