The Word of God Is Living and Powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword.
- hebrews 4:12

who we are

A people dedicated to New Testament Christianity

We are disciples of Christ who seek to follow His teachings as revealed in the New Testament. This sets us apart from many others who follow the writings of Moses or modern doctrines promoted by the religions of men.

Worship in Spirit & Truth

We worship in Spirit and Truth (John 4:23, 24). Thus, we study, pray, give, partake of the Lord's Supper, and sing (Acts 2:42; Colossians 3:16).

Teach the Gospel

We teach the word of God to those who are willing to listen (John 7:17). One of our key works is the Word and Sword TV broadcast.

Students of the Word

We search the Scriptures because we are continually learning and welcome your sincere Bible questions (Acts 17:11).

we are here to help

Clear Up Religious Confusion

Are you confused by all the different and contradictory religious teachings and practices? Have you ever wondered why there are so many churches with different names and beliefs? What we see in our society is not what Jesus wanted, nor what He condones.

Submit Your Questions

Are you seeking answers? Do you want to know the truth so you can be free (John 8:32)? Don't let the confusion of the religious world around you cause you to give up on your search. You can know the will of God (Ephesians 5:17). We welcome your sincere Bible questions and inquiries into what we believe and practice.
