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!

Purse: The Power of God
Series: Past Sermons
There several ideas about gods. People all over the world have different views, names and attributes they give to the various gods they worship. Today as we continue our sermon series through the book of Psalms, we come to Psalm 19. This Psalm was written by David. It was intended to be part of the worship in the Temple. Join us as we Pursue: A Heart of Worship.

    Pursue: The Jesus Psalm
    Series: Past Sermons
    This is a Psalm of the Messiah, the Prince or King. In this psalm, we see that there are people against God, against the Messiah or the Lord’s anointed. Reading this made me ask the questions: Is what is described in this psalm a universal rule that holds true for every nation? Can these verses be about the United States?

    Pursue: A Blessed Life
    Series: Past Sermons
    In today’s Psalm, Psalm 1, we see that the Psalms contain a lot of good wisdom for living a good, practical, and godly life. The theme of this psalm is of wisdom. It contains very wise and practical advice about the benefits of avoiding the world in many ways and embracing God, specifically, the law of God.

    Pursue: Intro to Psalms
    Series: Past Sermons
    Today we start a new series. We have been looking at David. Since God called David a man after God’s own heart, we want to know what David did, how David lived. Why was it God called him that, and can we do it as well? If you were to allow your bible to automatically open, what book would it probably open up to? Psalms. The Psalms are a very interesting book. For the next several weeks we will look at various psalms. Join us as we Pursue: a heart of worship. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022

    Pursue: Davids Last Words
    Series: Past Sermons
    We have seen a lot through the life of David. His highs and lows, the victories and failures. David is called a man after God’s own heart. Through our study this year hopefully all of us have learned how we can also live out our faith, live our lives in such as way that God could also call us people after His own heart. Today we are going to see the end of David’s life here on earth. Before David dies, he has some very important final words for the new king, his own son, Solomon. Join us as we hear the Last Words of King David. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022

    Pursue: Old King David
    Series: Past Sermons
    King David was ready to retire, but before he did, there were a couple of more things to accomplish. David had lived to be an aged monarch. He was a king who was greatly revered by his people. He is beloved for his music and poetry. He is respected for his remarkable wealth and power. He is famous far and wide for his military might and numerous victories. And he is emulated for his great love and esteem for the Lord God. Join us as we learn from Old King David. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022

    Pursue: Joy of Giving
    Series: Past Sermons
    What is one topic that people hate to hear from the pulpit? A message on giving. Here at St Joe, we will always and only preach what is found in scripture. If the bible talks about giving, that is what we will preach and teach. Which leads us to 1 Chronicles 29. This event in David’s life is one of his spiritual highlights. I wish this was the last thing we knew of David. Unfortunately, in the next few weeks we will see how David’s life ended. We looked at this passage a few weeks ago. Then we looked at what kind of legacy are we leaving? How can we inspire our kids to have a real faith in God? We must start with ourselves. Get rid of religion and get into a real relationship with Jesus. Put our own faith into practice. But there is more in this passage that I think we need to address. Join us as we Purse: A Quest For A Godly Heart. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022

    Pursue: The Response
    Series: Past Sermons
    “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) Not one can claim righteousness on their own standing. Even a “man after God’s own heart” was righteous. Sunday we were in 2 Samuel 24, when again King David sinned against God. Jake Fletcher shared The Response this fallen man had when again he had to face the consequences of his actions.

    Pursue: Preparing a Legacy Worth Pursuing
    Series: Past Sermons
    David is called a man after God’s own heart. And here we see that David really wanted to build the new temple to worship and honor God. Yet God told David, you are not the one to build the temple. We need to recognize that David has a great response to God’s statement. David didn’t get upset; he didn’t take offense. David did not pout or get angry at God. It doesn’t seem that David even gets jealous of his son Solomon who would have the honor of building this temple. Instead, David accepted God’s decision and put his who life into making sure the preparations would be made. This generous attitude and gracious spirit of wholehearted support stand as a great and noble monument to the legacy of this man of God. Join us we learn from David’s example and pursue a godly legacy. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022

    Pursue: Forgiveness Is Divine
    Series: Past Sermons
    All year we have been studying the life of David. I have tried to present David to you just the way the Bible does, as a real man who loved God, but often failed God. In spite of all his sin and failure, David was still a man after God’s own heart. And I think that one of the qualities of his life that made him such was his humility. David’s humility will be on display today as we see it expressed in his forgiving spirit. How many of you find it easy to forgive someone? It is not an easy thing for most of us. Join us as we continue to Pursue. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022

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.
