Who Are We?
Before the world ever began, God had a plan for you. That plan is revealed in the Bible and includes His Church. The Bible tells us the Church is part of the “eternal purpose” of God. But there is a great deal of misunderstanding about the importance and identity of that Church.
It was Jesus who said to his disciples, “I will build my Church” (Matthew 16:18). The Lord kept that promise; he built his Church and it exists today. The word of God tells us the Church is called “the body of Christ” (Ephesians 1:22-23) and that there is “one body . . .one Lord, one faith” (Ephesians 4:4-6). There are no denominations in the Bible, yet when we look around today, we see so many different Churches, different faiths, different teachings. All of these religious contradictions can be confusing.
But if we set aside the denominations, doctrines, and traditions of men and simply go back to the Bible, we can belong to the Church that Jesus built—the Lord’s Church that is a part of God’s eternal plan to redeem us and bring us to heaven through his Son. If we follow the New Testament of Christ and do today what they did then, we can be today what they were then - simply Christians (Acts 11:26). Nothing more, nothing less - just Christians. Not members of any denomination, but members of Jesus’ Church we read about in the Bible.
We at Memphis Community Church are striving to be faithful to the authority of God’s word and abide by the pattern He has given us for His Church (Acts 2:42; 2 Timothy1:13). We kindly invite you to join us in going back to the Bible to be Christians only, a part of the Lord’s family, the Church which he died to save with his blood (Acts 20:28; Ephesians 5:23-25). Our Goal: To have unity on biblical essentials, freedom on issues of opinion, and love in all things.
