WELCOME TO ELKINS, AR CHURCH OF CHRIST!
The Elkins congregation was established in the mid-1940s and has continued at its present location since the late 1940s.
Notable ministers who have served this congregation over the years are George Dockery, Leland Couch, and Lacy Randall, Jack Harriman, and Frank J. Daniels. Jack English presently serves as pulpit minister and teacher.
The aim of this church is to be non-denominational, as the church was in the 1st Century. Such is possible by believing what they believed, doing what they did, and being what they were – Christian, no more, no less.
This church sings a cappella style, and observes the Lord’s supper every Sunday as the 1st Century church did.
First and foremost, we believe in the love and mercy of God, the saving blood of Christ, and the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
THE BIBLE TEACHES THE FOLLOWING PATH TO SALVATION:
First, one must HEAR the saving gospel. (Romans 1:16; Romans 10:17)
Second, one must BELIEVE in Christ. (Mark 16:16, John 8:24; John 20:30-31, Hebrews 11:6)
Third, one must REPENT of his sins. (Luke 13:3, Acts 17:30)
Fourth, one must CONFESS faith in Christ. (Matthew 10:32, Acts 8:37, Romans 10:9-10)
Fifth, one must BE IMMERSED (ie, BAPTIZED) for the remission of sins. (Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38, Romans 6:4)
Sixth, one must LIVE FAITHFULLY. (I Corinthians 15:58, Revelation 2:10)
