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!

Real Life: Sexual Purity
Series: Past Sermons
Sex. Can we even talk about such a topic in the church? Did you know that 90% of kids, ages 8 to 16, (9 out of 10 kids) are already viewing some form of pornography? 1 out of 2 (50%) of "Christian" men are not just viewing porn but are addicted to it. And the statistics for women are not much different. 30% and rising! This is out of control! So not only should the church be addressing this topic but it is vital we that we do. God's word warns us of such dangers and tells us how to battle this destructiveness. Check out this message of Real Life: Sexual Purity. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #intentional #reallife #sexualpurity

    Real Life: Marriage Design
    Series: Past Sermons
    Marriage was made perfect in the Garden by the Creator of Life. Then sin entered and the perfect design was broken. How do we get back to the way it was supposed to be? By acknowledging how we have flawed God’s design and return to the original blueprint. Check out Real Life: Marriage Design. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #intentional #reallife #marriagedesign

    Real Life: Illness
    Series: Past Sermons
    Why God? Why must she suffer? What did I do to deserve this illness? When will my healing come? Why do some suffer sickness, chronic illnesses, or terminal diagnoses and others are never touch by it? Does God choose to punish some and reward others? So many questions, but what are the biblical answers? Check out this message about Real Life with Illness. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #intentional #reallife #illness

    Real Life: Worry
    Series: Past Sermons
    The word WORRY in Greek means to choke or to strangle. In Matthew chapter 6, Jesus asks "Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" We know the answer is no, but HOW? In a world where there is so much sickness, death, destruction, and just plain evil, how do we not worry? Check out this message on Worry and Anxiety and how to combat it. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #intentional #reallife #worry #anxiety

    Real Life: Depression & Anxiety
    Series: Past Sermons
    It's more than sadness. It's more than the blues. Depression is a result of a broken and sinful world. It did not exist in the perfect garden God created. It is in scripture. Did you know that Godly people from the Bible suffered with deep depression and anxiety? What did they do? What do we do? Thinking "happy" thoughts is like asking a diabetic to just produce more insulin. Sometimes, many times, we need help. Check out this message on Depression and ways to get that help. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #intentional #reallife #depression #anxiety

    Real Life: Broken Families
    Series: Past Sermons
    Our new focus for 2020 is Intentional, and with that we began a new sermon series called Real Life. Life is tough. It is messy. And sometimes we need to be intentional in how we react, how we respond and how we live. Join us as we begin with Broken Families. They not just prevalent today but throughout history... biblical history. Why did God choose to intentionally include such messed up and dysfunctional families in His HOLY Word? Check out this message and let us know what you think. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #intentional #reallife #brokenfamilies

    The Church In 2020…
    Series: Past Sermons
    It is a new year. A new decade. Over the last three years we have had a main focus for the year. In 2017 we unveiled a new logo and mission statement, Connect, Grow, and Serve, with the Just Come & See map point logo. In 2018 the leadership wanted to focus on Discipleship and what it means to be and to train disciples. Then in 2019 we felt lead to Authentic, to live real, true, genuine lives, as Christ lived. Now in 2020 we have a new focus. This focus is not replacing all that we have learned and grown from the previous years, but will add to it. Check it out. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #thechurchin2020

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.
