A Brief Message From Our Elders

Our only creed is Christ. Our sole source of authority for all that we do is God’s Word, the Bible, to which we are totally committed. On any matter where the Bible speaks, we are firmly committed to its commands, precepts, and principles. We are committed to the authority of the scriptures teaching salvation by grace through faith, repentance, and baptism by immersion for the remission of sins.

We are committed to the one church that Christ established, the autonomy of the local congregation, and to the New Testament pattern of worship. Each first day of the week the church assembles in worship with a-cappella singing, observance of the Lord’s supper, liberal giving, prayer, and teaching of God’s inspired word.

All Concord Road Church elders are available for counseling on Biblical and spiritual matters; we believe it is important to know and to listen to each member of the congregation; we urge one another to be considerate and accepting of others so that all can draw closer to God and become more effective servants; there is wisdom in the plurality of elders because it allows for different viewpoints and ideas; and finally, we are deeply committed to seeing that what is fed to the church is scripturally correct whether taught from the pulpit, in the classroom, or in any other teaching opportunity.
