OUR CHURCH COMMUNITY
The Burlington Church of Christ is a family of people in the Greater Burlington area who are committed to being 21st Century disciples of Jesus. Regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey, we're sure you will find our congregation welcoming and our teaching inspiring and relevant. We are:
As the inspired Word of God, the Bible is at the center of everything we believe and do.
We are not only family-friendly, with children's classes during service, but as brothers and sisters in Christ, we treat one another in the church as family.
We are one of the few churches in Burlington to have a truly diverse, multi-cultural membership.
What are your services like?
Service typically lasts about 90 minutes and includes plenty of singing and worship, a reflective communion message, and a life-guiding sermon. You'll find people wearing everything from suit jackets to jeans. Please wear whatever you feel comfortable worshipping God in. All are welcome!
What about my kids?
We want to make sure that both children and adults have an encouraging and inspiring time each Sunday. During services, we offer a Kid's Kingdom Program for children ages 6 months through eighteen. Children may also stay in for the service if you would prefer that.
What's expected of first-time visitors?
Nothing! Rest assured we're not going to ask you to stand up or come up front. You're sure to meet welcoming people at our services, but you won't be singled out. And please don't feel obligated to give to our weekly offering or participate in communion unless you want to.
How do I become a member?
We believe that the church is simply a body of believers who have become true disciples of Jesus. If you want to be a part of this body the first step is to study the Bible to find out what Jesus expected of His followers. To set up a personal bible study or attend a group bible study, contact us.
Loving God, one another, and everyone else.
"Jesus replied, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love the neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
- Matthew 22:34-40
Making and maturing disciples of Jesus.
"Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age."
- Matthew 28:18-20
Founded in the Word
OUR CORE VALUES
"Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers." 1 Timothy 4:16
We believe that Jesus is the only way to come into a saving relationship with God, and our teaching is centered on His life, His death, His resurrection, His timeless teachings, and His ultimate calling to every man and woman to follow Him.
In light of the example set by the early disciples of Jesus, every member of our congregation is encouraged to be devoted to reading, studying, and applying the Bible in their every-day life situations, as well as to prayer. Although written thousands of years ago, we believe that the Scriptures are inspired by God and have tremendous relevance for our 21st-century lives.
In addition to believing that the Bible must be the standard for our lives, we emphasize the need for one-another relationships where deep friendships and a strong sense of family can be developed and maintained. Whether in one-on-one, small group, or congregational settings, we use these relationships to encourage each other in what we hold to be both the greatest commandment and our greatest desire—loving God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
