Alpine, Texas 79830 Church of Christ
402 E. Sul Ross Ave 830-515-0591
The Alpine Church of Christ is a group of baptized believers embracing the simplicity of New Testament Christianity. The uncomplicated nature of the 1st-century church provides the pattern we strive to follow. Although currently without elders and deacons, our membership works towards having healthy leadership. The church family concept is essential as we strive to serve one another and encourage godly living, the goal of each member.
What We Believe
Since the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, guide for our relationships with each other and the community, we seek teaching and preaching that illuminates ways of improving each Christian's walk with God. The Bible enhances the life of the reader by revealing God's eternal plan to help people. It also discloses what life could be like without sin through the example of Jesus Christ. When Jesus left heaven, he embraced a human form, living the life of God on earth. Jesus' words, actions, and thoughts are at our fingertips through the study of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
Our mission is to encourage consistent, godly living in individual members, so our community may experience the wisdom of God through us. Humbleness seems appropriate since we still are sinners. The advantage of being a baptized believer is forgiveness through the blood of Christ, continued forgiveness through Jesus as our high priest, and advocacy by Christ on the Day of eternal judgment. The goal of consistent encouragement to one another comes through fellowship every Sunday, in prayer and praise, partaking of the Lord's Supper, and the reading and study of God's Word.
Since embracing the simplicity of the New Testament, our judgments about other local churches remain withheld since only God fully knows the attitudes and deeds of our fellow man. Responsibility for the decisions of the Alpine Church of Christ lies squarely at the feet of its local membership. Consider meeting with us!
24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV)
