What do we believe?

"The Starkville church of Christ is a Christ-centered, Bible-based family striving to be like Jesus and committed to sharing Him with others."


We believe that the Bible is the inspired and error-free Word of God, our guide for faith and life.


We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He died (was crucified) on our behalf, and that He arose and is seated at the right hand of God.  We believe that Jesus is the only way to a relationship with God and that he is our Savior and Intercessor.


We believe Jesus died in our place so that our sins against God might be forgiven.  Through the sacrifice of Jesus, God's grace saves us.  We receive God's gracious promises by responding in faith (trust & obedience),  repentance, and baptism.  Trusting Jesus as our life's leader results in eternal spiritual life with God.  This gift of eternal life cannot be earned or deserved in any way.  It is given to us by God's grace through His power and promises (Colossians 2:12).
