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!

    Baggage: Acts 15
    Series: Past Sermons
    This year we are going through the book of Acts. Our theme is Destination. The book of Acts, written by Luke who is a Gentile Physician, tells us about the first thirty years of the development of Christianity. About 20 years in, 20 years after the resurrection of Christ, a problem develops. We read about the problem and the solution the early church came up with in Acts 15. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #baggage

    The Journey Begins – part 2
    Series: Past Sermons
    Last time we looked at most of chapter 13. The first official missionary journey, Paul and Barnabas sent out to preach and reach people for Christ. In 13, we saw that Paul and Barnabas took the message, the gospel, the good news about Jesus to both Jews and Gentiles. What we didn’t get to is the end of that chapter. What happened when Paul and Barnabas preached the truth about Jesus? Opposition. Anger. Hate. Joy. Hope. Filling with the Holy Spirit. Join us as we continue our journey with Paul & Barnabas in Acts 14. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #TheJourneyBegins

    The Journey Begins- part 1
    Series: Past Sermons
    This year our theme is Destination. All year long we have been going through a study of the book of Acts. We started chapter 13 last week with Barnabas and Paul being sent out to proclaim the gospel and I believe that we are going to see some of the things that we can all expect in our personal meaningful adventure for God. Join us as The Journey Begins. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #TheJourneyBegins

    Hello My Name Is Paul: I Have Been Commissioned
    Series: Past Sermons
    For that past few Sundays, we have looked at Saul. In the beginning, Saul was waging war against the newly formed church. Saul went out of his way to make sure the Christians suffered. On his way to Damascus Saul’s life came to a halt. Saul met Jesus on that road, and it changed Saul. Saul went from chasing the church, to being part of it. Last week we saw how Saul was called by God to minister to others. With that calling Saul started teaching and preaching all over about the fullness of what God had said in the Old Testament. Saul went from being changed, to being called. Now let’s pick up his story in Acts 13:1-3 NLT

    Hello My Name Is Saul: I Have Been Called
    Series: Past Sermons
    Today, we are going to be in Acts 9:20-31.  We are going to see Saul in a different light then we did last week.  Earlier in Chapter Nine, we see Saul as this great antagonist who is persecuting the Christians.  Now, in today’s passage, Saul is a changed man and receives his calling to the work that Jesus has set him apart for. We are so glad you have joined us! #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #HelloMyNameIs

    Hello My Name Is Saul: I Have Been Changed
    Series: Past Sermons
    Today, we are starting a brand-new sermon series, where we are going to learn about who Saul is and how his life changed from the persecutor Pharisee to God’s chosen instrument to bring the Word to the Gentiles. Over the next few weeks, we are going to look into the transformation from Saul to Paul. Join us for Acts 9.

    Scattered: Herod or Peter
    Series: Past Sermons
    Today we are going to have a different style of sermon. As we come to our last sermon in the Scattered series, we are in chapter 12. You are going to hear from two individuals today. As they recount their story to you, notice how drastically different they are. Let's get started! #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #Scattered

    Scattered: Barnabas
    Series: Past Sermons
    Today we are going to see a man of encouragement. Joseph. Not the earthly father of Jesus. Not the boy sold to slavery in Egypt. No, this Joseph was such an encourager, that he was renamed Barnabas, which means Son of Encouragement. Let us look at the character of this man and find how we can be more like him. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #Scattered

    Series: Past Sermons
    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

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.
