Welcome to Wytheville Church of Christ.
The Wytheville congregation is a group where everyone is welcome. We are a body of Christian people seeking to follow the pattern of New Testament Christianity. We strive to be the same church that is identified in the New Testament. Our aim is to restore its doctrine, its practice, its lifestyle, and its zeal.
What We Believe...
We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired Word of God and our only authority (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Colossians 3:17).
Teaching the word of God is an important part of our services. You will observe that the Bible is the textbook to which reference is repeatedly made in our sermons and classes. Special emphasis is placed on the New Testament (Romans 1:16). You will never be asked to simply accept what someone says about the Bible; we want you to read the Bible for yourself to see "whether these things are so" (Acts 17:11).
The Bible is our only guide and source of authority for everything we do. We strive to do nothing more, nothing less, and nothing else than what the Bible says.
Salvation in Christ...
At the conclusion of every service, you will hear obedience to the will of Christ emphasized as necessary to salvation. The Bible teaches us that we are saved by the grace of God (Ephesians 2:8-10). This includes: faith in Christ as taught in the gospel (Romans 10:17); repentance from sin (Luke 24:47); confession of faith in Christ (Romans 10:9-10); and baptism (immersion in water) for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38; 22:16; 1Peter 3:21; Romans 6:3-5). If anyone responds to this message, you will see them immersed in water where they will be raised to live a new spiritual life in Jesus Christ (Romans 6:3-4).
By obeying the gospel plan of salvation we have forgiveness of sins, and gain membership into the body of Christ-or the Church where we are made heirs to the blessings found in Jesus Christ alone. These acts of obedience make us a Christian.
