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!

There have been various people through the years who have held the title of King. From the royalty of actual kings to popular people of the era. Each one had his own way of doing things. Which is what earned him the title of king. All these individuals, with the title king have failed. They have not lived up to the title of King.

    Worship the King
    Series: Past Sermons
    We are in the middle of a sermon series titled the King. So far this year we have looked at the life of David, and now he has finally become the King of Israel. It has taken him 15 years to get to this point. As we continue our Easter Series, we come to one of my favorite events of David’s life. But we need some background first. Let’s get started! #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022

    The New King
    Series: Past Sermons
    How would you describe a king? Royal. Elite. A king is a man who is the most important member of the royal family of his country, and who is considered to be the Head of State of that country. What does a king have? Castle or palace. Wealth. Prestige. What does a king do? Run the country. Head of state. Generally speaking, American’s do not like the idea of a monarchy. It goes against the principles of the founding fathers. And yet, a monarchy is exactly what scripture talks about so much. In our study today we come to the continental divide of this series on the life of David. David’s life was sprinkled with a mixture of accomplishments and disappointments. Join us today as we begin the new chapter in David’s life as The King. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022

    Saul’s Sad Ending
    Series: Past Sermons
    If you bring up the subject of death and you will get many different reactions from people. Some can easily and readily talk about it, and others cannot. As we turn to our text for today from 1 Samuel 31, we come to the very sad and tragic ending of the life of King Saul. Some might approach this chapter with a sense of relief. We know Saul’s demise and death are coming; they were prophesied by Samuel long ago in chapters 13, and 15. Join us as we say goodbye to King Saul. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022
  • Mar 20, 2022Pursue: Wilderness of Sin
    Mar 20, 2022
    Pursue: Wilderness of Sin
    Series: Past Sermons
    Today we will be in 1 Samuel 27, 29 and 30. In these chapters we will notice that there is a very key person missing in the life of David, and that person is God. Isn’t that strange, here is David, the man after God’s own heart, and God is missing from this entire episode. How can that be? Join us as we see how David struggles to do life his own way instead of God’s. Do we ever choose that path? How do turn back? #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022 #QuestforaGodlyHeart
  • Mar 13, 2022Pursue: From Anger to Abigail
    Mar 13, 2022
    Pursue: From Anger to Abigail
    Series: Past Sermons
    This year our theme is Pursue, a quest for godly heart. And we are looking through the good and the bad of David’s life, to see what made him a man after God’s own heart. David is known by many things. A poet. A shepherd. A warrior. A King. A musician. A man after God’s own heart. Throughout this year we are going to look at the life of David, to learn from him so that we too can pursue a Godly heart. In chapters 24 and 26 we see David show such restraint and forgiveness, godly attributes that we should mirror. But what about 25? What happens in between these two times that David acts justly? Join us as we continue our Quest for a Godly Heart. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022

    Life From God s Point of View
    Series: Past Sermons
    Can you even fathom the knowledge of God? The scope of His understanding? Join us today as Jim Platner shares what God's word says about Life from God's Point of View.

    Pursue: The Cave of Wonders
    Series: Past Sermons
    Last week when we left David, he was dribbling saliva down his beard and scratching on the gate of the enemy like a madman. Realizing that his identity was known by the Philistines, David fakes insanity and then slipped out of the city of Gath. Once again, David is a man on the run and where do we find him? Join us as we discover the Cave of Wonders. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022
  • Feb 13, 2022Purse: Removing The Training Wheels
    Feb 13, 2022
    Purse: Removing The Training Wheels
    Series: Past Sermons
    How many of you had training wheels on your bikes? Those little side wheels attached to the back tire help give you stability on a bike. They are a great help when first learning how to ride a bike. Once we have learned to ride the bike, the training wheels should be removed, right? What if we are too afraid to let go of the training wheels? Many people are still finding their security in training wheels. In the things of this world. Sometimes we don’t even recognize that we are trusting in these things rather than in God. These training wheels of life become a sort of idol when we place our trust in them. Join us today as we pursue a heart like David. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022 #QuestForAGodlyHeart

Have you studied the book of Revelation? Does it intimidate you or do you find it hard to understand? Did you know there is great comfort to be found in this book?

Join us as we dig into The Revelation to John in our new Adult Sunday School class beginning April 24th at 9am.

On September 26, 2021, Erin Munster, Tracie Prosser, & Amber Peters presented a gift to Donny & Dustin in the form of a calendar for Prayer & Fasting. The goal is to have our church family dedicate time to pray and fast for the purpose of lifting up these men and their families, to God, for support, strength and encouragement as they serve each person here and in our community. Both Donny and Dustin love their calling, but that does not mean it’s an easy task. Please consider signing up for one day, once a month, or what ever you feel led to do.

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.
