What To Expect

There are five components of our worship assembly:

Communion: On every Sunday we assemble to observe the Lord’s Supper, a memorial established by Jesus Himself to commemorate His death on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

Prayer: We offer prayers of supplication and thanksgiving (1 Timothy 2:1-8Acts 2:421 Thessalonians 5:17)

Singing: We praise God and edify one another through a cappella (non-instrumental) singing (Colossians 3:16).  We sing to praise God and to exhort and encourage one another. (Ephesians 5:19)

Preaching and Teaching: Accurate and relevant Bible teaching is an important element of our assemblies.  We believe that we should have Scriptural authority for everything that we do as Christians and as a church.  The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and it is all that we use to determine our practices and beliefs. (Titus 2:1-22 Timothy 4:2-5)

Giving: In our Sunday assembly, our members give as they have been prospered in order to meet the needs of the Lord’s church in teaching and benevolence.  This opportunity is a right and responsibility of our members.  Our guests are neither asked nor expected to participate. (I Corinthians 16:1-2II Corinthians 9:7)

We offer Bible Classes for all ages – from infant through adult – on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights.  All of these classes are Bible based and their purpose is to help individuals gain a better knowledge of the Bible and its practical application to one’s life.

We simply ask that you “Come and see.” (John 1:46).  Be our guest for a few weeks – observe, ask questions, get acquainted, and prayerfully consider the things that you see and hear.  We look forward to seeing you at the Kingston Church of Christ!

What We Teach and Believe...


We believe in the God of the Scriptures, a just and loving God who lives in the persons of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God created all things and He loves His creation. God wants everyone to be in a relationship with Him.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God who became human to save us from our sins. We believe that Jesus’ life shows us how to live, that His death redeems us from our sins, and that His resurrection guarantees our own resurrection to a new life. We believe that Christ now sits at the right hand of God as exalted King, and that He alone is the world’s savior and king. We believe that Jesus is the only way to have a saving relationship with God.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God who personally dwells in believers for the sake of transforming us into Jesus’ likeness. We believe that the Spirit empowers us to be like Christ, supplies us with spiritual gifts, and leads us in the will of God. We believe we are to be filled with the Spirit.

The Scriptures

We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are inspired of God, infallible, and perfect. We believe that God expects us to be obedient to the Scriptures, and that He will bless us when we obey Scriptures, even if popular culture might contradict Scripture.

Sin, Salvation, and Faith

We believe that all humans have sinned and that our sins separate us from God and bring God’s judgment upon us. We believe that only God’s grace can redeem us from being lost, and that salvation comes to us through faith in Jesus as both Savior and Lord. We believe in salvation by grace through faith. We believe that saving faith demonstrates itself in obedience to the will of God.


We believe that water baptism by immersion serves as the point at which we die to our lost selves, are buried, and are raised to a resurrected life in Christ. We believe that in baptism sins are washed away through faith and because of grace. We believe that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord needs to be baptized into Christ Jesus.


We believe that God calls us to live holy lives, which reflect the purity, morality, and ethical standards of Jesus Christ. We believe that we must avoid the sins listed in such texts as Mark 7:20-23, Romans 1:18-32, Ephesians 4:17-6:9, Galatians 5:19-21, and elsewhere. Motivated by love for God and others, we believe that we must resist these sins, even if unbelievers around us do not.

The Church

We believe that the church comprises the community of believers who have been saved by the blood of Christ, and that the church is the bride of Christ, the body of Christ, the temple of the Spirit, the family of God, and the pillar and ground of the truth. We believe that active participation in the church is necessary for growth in Christ. We believe that the core mission of the church is to make disciples of all nations. We believe that when people become disciples of Jesus, they will come together in covenanted communities as the local church. For this reason, we emphasize making disciples and planting churches.

The Second Coming

We believe that Jesus Christ will return to gather His people at the end of time, raising all of humanity from the dead. We believe that those who have put their faith in Christ will be raised to eternal life, but those who have refused to believe in Him will be raised to eternal death. We believe in living prepared for Jesus’ second coming.

Current Issues

In order to clarify where the Kingston Church of Christ stands on several current issues, we attach these points of clarification to our statement of faith.

1. We believe that all human life is priceless in the eyes of God and that all humans should be treated as image-bearers of God. For this reason, We stands for the sanctity of life, and strongly opposes abortion.

2. We believe in Jesus’ definition of marriage—that marriage must be between one man and one woman. For this reason, we believe same-sex marriage is disordered and sinful, and we oppose same-sex marriage.

3. We believe that Christ invites all races and ethnicities into the Kingdom of God. Because humanity has exhibited grave racial injustices throughout history, we believe that racial reconciliation must be a priority of the church. We believe the Gospel and the churches it creates must be open and welcoming to all people who come to Christ—from all ethnicities.
