What We Believe

Here at the Henrietta church of Christ, we believe in holding to the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the New Testament.

We are a denomination-free, autonomous congregation of people worshiping and serving God, with the Bible as our ultimate authority.

Our elders oversee and shepherd the church on a spiritual and emotional level.

The deacons serve and work to maintain the physical needs of our congregation.

Our full-time ministers are hired by the elders and serve to guide the congregation, under the elder’s direction, as we grow more one with each other and with Christ.


  • Who is in charge of your congregation?
    • Jesus is the head of the Church. He is the one and only Savior for all mankind. (Ephesians 1:22-23)
  • Why do you meet weekly?
    • We assemble as a body of believers just as the first-century Church did. We aren’t all the same, but we share a common savior. (Hebrews 10:25)
  • Why and How do you take communion?
    • We take the Lord’s Supper together on the first day of the week to follow the example of the New Testament Church and to remember Christ’s sacrifice. (Acts 20:7)
  • What is the singing like?
    • We sing completely acapella during our worship. We follow the command from God through Paul to sing making melody in our hearts! (Ephesians 5:19)
  • What do you believe about baptism?
    • Scripture declares that it is necessary for one to be baptized (immersed) in order to be saved. Salvation comes at baptism, not before or after. (Mark 16:16)
  • What do I need to do to be saved?
    • Once you have heard the message of Christ, understand you (and everyone else) have sinned, and confess the Lord publicly, then it is time to take on the Lord in baptism to be saved, as mentioned above. (Acts 8:26-40)
  • If you have any further questions on any Biblical matter, please contact one of our ministers or elders, or come visit with us at any of our scheduled worship times!
