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!

Destination Rome: Your Story
Series: Past Sermons
Last week we saw how some well-intentioned people tried to stop Paul from going to Jerusalem. Ultimately it was God’s will that Paul go. In the rest of chapter 21, Paul arrives in Jerusalem. The Jerusalem church welcomes Paul, but the Jews of that area do not. This causes great friction and ultimately leads to Paul’s story. His testimony. Join as we continue our journey.

    Destination Rome: Good Advice… Bad Advice
    Series: Past Sermons
    Advice can be a wonderful thing…or an absolute disaster. I bet that all of us can think back to some bad advice you received or perhaps some bad advice that you have given. Sometimes we don’t want to hear advice, but we should hear it anyway and pay heed to it. Last Sunday we started the final sermon series through our study of Acts. Destination Rome. Paul is focused on his destination. In our text, we see Paul’s friends trying desperately to give him advice. These are good godly people. They are giving this advise through love of God and love of Paul. Let’s see what kind of advise they gave, and how Paul handled it.

    Destination Rome: Wake Up!
    Series: Past Sermons
    Today we start the end of Acts. Paul is focused from this point on. Paul knows God has called him to go to Rome. Rome was the center of the world at this point. And Paul was commissioned to share the message of Christ to Rome, thereby enabling people to take that message to the rest of the world. When we go on a journey the first thing we need to do is prepare. Join us as we prepare for the journey to the Destination Rome.

    Visiting the Cities of Acts: Duplicity
    Series: Past Sermons
    Today we continue in our cities of Acts. Paul is not in his third missionary journey. Here we find people who seem like followers of Christ, doing the work of true believers. However, thing are not always what they seem. Join us as we finish traveling the cities of Acts in chapter 19. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #VisitingtheCitiesofActs

    Visiting the Cities of Acts: Distinguished Faith
    Series: Past Sermons
    There are a lot of unexpected events, surprises in the Bible. It’s surprising that God saved a man like Saul, who became the great Apostle Paul. Think of the surprise to the Israelites when they came to the Red Sea with the Egyptians in hot pursuit, and suddenly, Surprise, God parts the sea for them to cross over. Think of how surprising it was to live in Galilee when a man named Jesus suddenly starts turning water into wine, calming storms, healing the sick and raising the dead! There are so many other surprises in the Bible, as we continue to look at various cities in Acts, we come to a new person. A surprise. There’s no hint of him before chapter 18, and then he leaps into the Bible! He’s mentioned once more in Acts 19:1, and then you never hear of him in Acts again, although Paul mentions him 7 times in 1 Corinthians and once in Titus. Join us as we journey to this new Destination in Acts 18.

    Visiting the Cities of Acts: Egoamimetasou
    Series: Past Sermons
    We have been through various cities so far in our journey through Acts. Last week we visited Religiosity. A place where people pretend to be religious but all of it is empty and hollow. Instead, we need to move into relationship with God. The week before that we were in Simplicity. The Bereans showed us how to live in simple faith. Following God, studying the Scripture to make sure we are living our lives right. We started this sermon series by visiting the town of Jealousy. In the city of Jealousy there is a good side. There is a proper time and place to be jealous. But there is also the other side of the tracks. A place where jealousy takes us to a sinful life. The city we are really going to visit today is hard to say, Egoamimetasou. We are going to see what Egoamimetasou means to Paul, and what it can mean to us, as we come to chapter 18 of Acts. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #VisitingtheCitiesofActs

    Series: Past Sermons
    As we continue through our study in Acts we are visiting the various cities that Paul goes to on his second missionary journey. Today we come to the town of Athens. Athens became known for its military power. Even though it had been conquered by the Romans in 146 BC, during Paul’s day Athens continued to be a free city that was still known as the intellectual capital of the Greco-Roman world and the religious capital of Greece. What are we going to find when we travel to Athens with Paul... Let find out in Acts 17. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #VisitingtheCitiesofActs

    As we continue our study through the book of Acts, Paul has started his second missionary journey. Last week we stopped at Thessalonica and there we seen that the Jews had taken residence in the City of Jealousy.

    Visiting the Cities of Acts: The City of Jealousy
    Series: Past Sermons
    All year we have been going through the book of Acts. Our theme for the year is Destination. When going on a trip you want to visit different destinations to see the sights. Many people pick certain cities to travel to. There are lots of cities to travel to. Here in America and across the globe. In chapter 17 of Acts we see Paul and his companions going on their second missionary journey. They are going to go through several cities. As we look at these cities they traveled through, we will see how we also travel to these various cities. Join us as we visit the cities of Acts. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #VisitingtheCitiesofActs

    Series: Past Sermons
    As we continue our study through Acts, with the yearly theme of Destination, we are going to see Paul come to a detour. Will he choose his way or take the detour God asks him to take? And what happens when God changes Paul's plans? Let's find out in Acts 16. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #AnotherDetour

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.
