What we believe:

 

Vernon has a great desire to rightly divide the Word of God (2 Timothy 2:15). It may be best said as a matter of what the Bible teaches rather than what we believe. We use Scripture, and only Scripture, as our doctrine.  We do not adhere to any man-made doctrines or creeds. As the church began in Acts 2, a comprehensive study reveals how the 1st Century Christians put to action the teachings of Christ.

The following are some of the things you can expect at a worship service at Vernon:

Music:
The church sings A cappella (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16). Through study, we find that there is no evidence of instrumental worship with Christians in the New Testament.

The Lords Supper:
This great memorial was instituted by Christ himself (Matthew 26: 26-28, 1 Corinthians 11: 23-29). The Lords Supper is taken every first day of the week (Acts 20:7).

Giving:
The Bible teaches sacrificial giving and the same is commanded of Christians today. There are many ways to give but in relation to monetary giving, scripture reveals the collection on the first day of the week (1 Corinthians 16: 1-2). The Creator of the Universe gives all  good and perfect gifts (James 1:17) and how the more should we be willing to give back to God (2 Corinthians 9:7-8).

Plan of Salvation:
The soul of man is one’s most valuable possession (Mark 8:36). The desire to save the soul is the greatest question one can ask (Acts 2:37). The invitation to obey the gospel is always extended.

There are 5 simple steps – no more, no less!

HEAR THE WORD
One must hear the Word of God (Romans 10:17).

BELIEVE
One must believe what they hear of the Word (Hebrews 11:6, Mark 16: 15-16).

REPENT
One must repent of their sins, change their life (Acts 2:38, Luke 13:3).

CONFESS JESUS
One must confess that Jesus was the one and only Son of God who came to Earth and died for our sins and then resurrected (Mathew 10: 32-33, Acts 8:37).

BAPTISM
One is then baptized for the remission of their sins (Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16, 1 Peter 3: 20-21, John 3: 3-8)

 

There is so much more to share. We can only hope this has intrigued your desire to open the Bible and study (Acts 17:11). If there is a particular question you have, please contact us.


Youth

We value the youth of today and those of our community. We take great measure to ensure they are fed the Truth and are given opportunity to learn and serve at every stage of life.
