Welcome to the EmoryChristians.org site!
We hope you find the information here helpful!
I am a member of the congregation of the Lord's people that meet in Emory, Texas. A church is not a building. A church is a group of individuals that have been saved out of the world in accordance with the commandments given in the New Testament. As God has commanded, we meet on the first day of every week (Hebrews 10:25,26) to worship Him. Our worship is patterned after the first century church found in the New Testament. Each first day of the week, Sunday, we meet together to pray (Acts 2:42), sing (Colossians 3:16), partake of the Lord's Supper (Acts 20:7), hear a lesson from the Word of God (II Timothy 4:2), and make individual contributions to carry on the work of the church (I Corinthians 16:1-2). Visitors are not expected to contribute; only regular members contribute as they have prospered. We do not follow any man made doctrine and strive to do only that which has been authorized by God in the New Testament, neither adding to His commandments nor taking away from them (Revelation 22:18–19).
The Emory church of Christ web site is here. We would be honored to have you join us at any of our worship services and our Bible study classes. Our building is located on Highway 69 North about a mile north of the intersection of Highway 19 and Highway 69 in Emory. A map is here. Our meeting times are:
- Sunday Bible Study: 9:00 AM.
- Sunday Worship Service: 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM.
- Mid-week Bible Study: Wednesday, 7:00 PM.
- In the Fall and Winter months, we also have a Men's Bible Study and a Women's Bible Study class. Both meet at 10:00 AM each Wednesday.
On this site you will find Biblical material that is scriptural in content. Items include Biblical tracts, some items that were included in our church bulletin, information on many spiritual topics, information on India evangelism, and a links page where links to Biblical sites that helped me in my efforts to grow spiritually are posted. I hope you will find them helpful to you, too.
What must I do to be saved?
Be Baptized—Mark 16:16
Remain Faithful—I Corinthians 15:58
What church must I join?
None—an example of men joining a church is not found in the New Testament
The Lord adds the saved to his church—Acts 2:41, 47; I Corinthians 12:18
The Lord has only one church—Matthew 16:18. Only the Lord's church can be read about in the New Testament (Ephesians 5:23, 27)
The church is the body of Christ—Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:18
There is only one body—Ephesians 4:4; I Corinthians 12:12, 20
Division is condemned—I Corinthains 1:10, 13; John 17:20-21
“That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him though he be not far from every one of us” (Acts 17:27)
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness, but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but all should come to repentance ” (II Peter 3:9)
We members of the Emory church of Christ strive to follow the commands of God, our Father, and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, as revealed to us in God's Holy Word through the Holy Spirit, the Bible. We endeavor to take nothing from, or add anything to, God's commandments as given us in the inspired (literally "God breathed") writings in His Holy Book (Deuteronomy 4:2, Revelation 22:18-19). We are just Christians; not Baptist-Christians, Methodist-Christians, or any other kind of hyphenated Christian, only Christians and we invite you to become just a Christian, too.
