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!

Intern Minister:

Craig Petermen

I am a student at Central Christian College of the Bible. My future goals are to be a preacher and church leader, which are two of the things I am learning more about while I am at St. Joe Church of Christ. I am a fourth generation preacher and have supplied preach at over a dozen churches and parachurch ministries primarily in Central Missouri and North East Indiana. I will be graduating from Central with my Bachelor’s in May 2022. Past ministries I have been involved with besides CCCB, are Lake James Christian Camp and Cedar Creek Church. I was a dishwasher and staff supervisor at the camp and a youth ministry intern at Cedar Creek. I have a heart and passion for serving the Lord. Some personal information about me. I was born in Laharp, Illinois during my parents first ministry. I have two siblings, a brother and a sister. I also have a beautiful Christian girlfriend whom I’ve dated for over two years. I currently reside in Grabill, Indiana. In what little free time I have, I love to hang out with my girlfriend, play disc golf and softball, watch about any sport, and eat good barbeque. And my favorite breakfast cereal is Apple Jacks.

Today, as we continue through the book of Acts, we are again with Peter as he ministered to the people along the coast and in Joppa. We are going to see a major shift in the Christian faith, that may seem normal today but was unprecedented in Peter's time. So let get started in Acts chapter 10 & 11. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #Scattered Check out our YouTube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/StJoeChurchofChrist

    Scattered: Philip
    Series: Past Sermons

    How do you do when it comes to sharing the good news about Jesus? For some people sharing the good news about Jesus is very natural. It comes easy for them. But for others, they find it very difficult. They get tongue-tied and nervous. They even worry that we might say the wrong thing. Yet, we all know we should say something. We know that God has changed us, and because of that, we know He can help others as well. We want to be a witness to this difference Jesus has caused in us. We are going through a sermon series called Scattered. The early church was growing fast, but encountered some troubles. When persecution came, the believers scattered. But as they scattered they kept telling people bout Jesus. Join us for Acts chapter 8.

    Scattered
    Series: Past Sermons
    It has been a rough year and a half. So many things have been happening, and so many of those things are not good. We have had a pandemic full of fear and control. We have had riots or protests. Political division. Medical division. Promoting of immoral behavior. Lack of transparency. There have been lots of changes in this covid era, even more in the post-covid world. How we work, go to the dr., shop, visit with folks, go to school, even “go to church” has dramatically changed. We did not willingly make most of those changes. And it has been difficult. For the most part, humans are adaptable, and we have accepted the changes we need to make, even if we do it reluctantly. The past year has seen the church "scattered" from our traditional routines and practices. What do we do now? Far too often the church only acts when it is required by external circumstances. We have been “scattered” away from our routine and reliance on the church building. Our traditional and comfortable ways of “doing church” have been disrupted and we have had to develop new ways of achieving eternal goals. What does God’s word have to say about the church that had been SCATTERED?

    Troubles or the Church: Choosing the Wrong Side
    Series: Past Sermons
    For the last several Sundays, we have been looking at troubles and the church. We have seen several troubles that have tried in invade the church, or hinder the church. Today Stephen is going to show us that we have a choice. What we have in chapter 7 is the longest sermon in the entire book of Acts. We were first introduced to Stephen in chapter 6. He is one the deacons selected to fulfill a ministry task so the church leaders could focus on preaching, teaching and prayer. Join us as we find out what Stephen has to say. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #TroublesandtheChurch

    Troubles and the Church: A Growing Church
    Series: Past Sermons
    As we continue our sermon series Trouble and the church, we see here that the church once again has a problem. This passage is one many have heard preached, repeatedly. But what do we do? Skip it? Touch on it a bit and move on? Or choose to break it down and see what God wants St Joe Church of Christ to hear. Join us as we look at Acts 6. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #TroublesandtheChurch

    Troubles and the Church: Staying on Target
    Series: Past Sermons
    There are troubles that happen whenever people get together. We have looked at a few troubles in the church so far. Troubles that started within the church. Today we are going to see a trouble that was outside of the church, and tried to work its way in. A real church, a church that is healthy with Christians growing in their faith, does not get to go through life unopposed. This is a fact that was seen even in the earliest church. Join us as we continue our study of Acts 5. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #TroublesandtheChurch

    Troubles and the Church: Going Through The Motions
    Series: Past Sermons
    Do you sometimes just go through the motions? Work. School. Do you ever go through the motions of church? As we continue our study through the book of Acts, we now come to several events that showcase troubles in the church. Last week we looked at how the church handled being told to stay silent, to stop preaching and teaching about Jesus. Today we are going to see a very odd trouble in the church and how the church responded. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #TroublesandtheChurch Check out our YouTube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/StJoeChurchofChrist

GIVE

Our God is a God of abundance and He loves to give. He sacrificed willingly on the cross and then invited us into fullness of life. As His children, we are called to imitate Him. Our generosity in giving is a demonstration of God’s character and a response to what He has done for us.
