Who We Are

St. Joe Church of Christ is here to CONNECT people with God and each other, to provide an atmosphere where we can GROW our faith in God, and to SERVE one another in the name of Christ.

 What We Believe

1. St. Joe Church of Christ is a congregation that recognizes the Bible as God’s inspired and authoritative word (2 Timothy 3:16).
 
2. We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s only son and that He is literally God in the flesh; becoming a man after already existing as God in Heaven (John 1:1,14; Philippians 2:6-11; Colossians 1:17).
 
3. We believe that Jesus died on the cross, on purpose, so that He might be the perfect sacrifice for our sins (Romans 5:1-8).
 
4. We believe that Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after He was crucified. His resurrection demonstrated His power over death and validated His words and ministry (1 Corinthians 15:3-7).
 
5. We believe that Jesus will return some day to take us to be with Him in Heaven, and that He will reign with absolute power and authority (Matthew 24:36-44, 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17).
 
6. We believe that a person needs to accept Jesus Christ to be saved from sin and to go to Heaven (John 3:16; 14:6).
 
7. We believe the way to be saved is found in the Bible. It says that a person must hear and believe that Jesus is God’s Son (Romans 10:14); they must understand that they have fallen short of God’s Glory by sinning against God (Romans 3:23); they must realize that they cannot make it to heaven on their own merits: it is by God’s grace that we are given the opportunity to be saved (Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 6:23); they must confess their belief in Christ and be willing to place their trust in Him (Romans 10:11); they must be baptized (immersion) into Christ for the forgiveness of their sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38; Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:3-7).
 
8. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells true believers and acts as a Counselor, Comforter, Teacher, Developer of spiritual fruits and Giver of spiritual gifts (John 14:25,26; Galatians 5:22,23; I Corinthians 12:4-6; Ephesians 4:11-13).

9. We believe the church is God’s people (Matthew 16:18), consisting of those who are saved in Christ. The church is to give glory to God in worship (Ephesians 5:19,20); to evangelize (Matthew 28:19); and to teach the believers how to bring glory and honor to Jesus in their lifestyles (Ephesians 4:5), recognizing Him as Head of the church (Ephesians 5:23).

 
We know that is a lot to take in, so just
Come & See!

Again and again you see men and women of God lifting up their hearts and praising God. Join us for a Prayer of Thanksgiving. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #BeIntentionalin2020 #HowToPray #PrayerofThanksgiving

    Church Roll Call: Everyone
    Series: Past Sermons
    Over the past three weeks, we’ve talked about the roles of Preachers, Elders, and Deacons. These are the primary leaders in worship. They are the pace setters. The Preachers preach and teach. The Elders - pastor/guard/protect. The Deacons – serve in various ministries for the church. So a person might be excused for asking “If these men do all that in church what are the rest of us here for?" Let's find out...

    Church Roll Call: Ministers
    Series: Past Sermons
    We are in a series called Role Call. We have looked at some roles within the church. First, we looked at the role of Elders. They are the spiritual leaders. Their responsibility to guide and lead the church under the direction of the Holy Spirit. Last week we looked at the roles of deacons. They are the servants in the church. Their role is to make sure that the various ministries are going, allowing the elders to fulfill their main role. Today we come to everyone’s favorite role, the minister! What does the Bible say they roll of the minister is? Let’s find out…   #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #BeIntentionalin2020 #ChurchRoleCall #Ministers

    Church Roll Call: Deacons
    Series: Past Sermons
    Last week we looked at the biblical role of Elders. They are the spiritual leaders of the church. They have been given authority by God to teach and lead the church. It is a heavy responsibility. One that holds great consequences, if not fulfilled the right way. But there is another role within the church. The role of a Deacon. What does the Bible say the role of a Deacon is?

    Confessions of a Minister: Sometimes I Don’t Want To Obey
    Series: Past Sermons
    Today we come to the last confession. And this one really hit close to home. See we have a new puppy. His name is Charlie. Now he is cute and fun and full of energy. We are working on training him and teaching him a few commands. However, Charlie is not a big fan of obeying. He will IF he gets a reward for obeying, but if there is nothing in it for him then he really doesn’t want to obey. And sometimes, I hate to admit, I am just like Charlie. In today’s Confessions of a Minister: we find out that Sometimes I Don’t Want To Obey. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #BeIntentionalin2020 #ConfessionsOfAMinister #SometimesIDon’tWantToObey

    Confessions of a Minister: Sometimes I Have Doubts
    Series: Past Sermons
    Today we are filled with so many different ideas, so many different theories, different perspectives, that many times we don’t know which is right or true. We doubt what is true. Sometimes I have doubts. Sometimes I doubt the news. Sometimes I doubt people’s sincerity. Sometimes I doubt people’s commitment. Sometimes I doubt others faith. But to be brutally honest, sometimes I have doubts about God. This is my confession, Confessions of a Minister: Sometimes I Have Doubts. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #BeIntentionalin2020 #ConfessionsOfAMinister #SometimesIHaveDoubts

    Are you ready for the next confession? So far, we have heard Donny confess that sometimes he feels inadequate for this job. And sometimes he really does not like people. Today we find that sometimes he does not want to pray. Have you ever experienced that? And what do we do when we just do not want to pray? Join us as we hear Confessions of a Minister: Sometimes I Don’t Want To Pray. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #BeIntentionalin2020 #ConfessionsOfAMinister #SometimesIDontWantToPray

GIVE
