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!

His Will At The Well
Series: Past Sermons
How many of you feel like your life is in the fast lane, that all you seem to do is hurry to everything? A lot of people fill their lives with activities. They go to this and that event, they spend this much time at work, this much time on their own projects. They are constantly busy. And yet, are they really productive? A lot of people live busy lives without ever stopping to think, “What does God want me to do?” As a result, they hurry from one project to another. And they feel like slaves, wearing themselves out without accomplishing what God considers important. Join us as we see what God’s word says about being busy verses being productive.   #stjoecoc #comeandsee #Foundation2023 #anunwaveringfaith

    Series: Past Sermons
    Today we continue to follow the life of Christ, so we can build a foundation of unwavering faith, we are going to look at John 3. This is where John the Baptist effectively conquered jealousy among his own followers. What can you do to combat this terrible, subtle enemy? What can you do to conquer jealous comparisons before they conquer you? #stjoecoc #comeandsee #Foundation2023 #anunwaveringfaith

    The Cost of Worship
    Series: Past Sermons

    Last week we looked at Jesus’ first recorded miracle. As we continue following Jesus through His earthly life we are going to see how Jesus interacts with people. How Jesus talks to the spiritually lost. How Jesus talks to the spiritually arrogant. How Jesus interacts with creation, and how Jesus responds to the crowds. Throughout His earthly life, we need to remember that Jesus was a Jew. Which meant He would follow the Jewish laws and rituals. Jesus would have went to the Synagogues, and the Temple. Jesus observed all the Jewish festivals, including the Passover. Today we are going to see the first recorded Passover of Jesus’ ministry. Join us as we see The Cost of Worship.#stjoecoc #comeandsee #Foundation2023 #anunwaveringfaith

    Water To Wine: A Taste Of What Is To Come
    Series: Past Sermons
    For those who choose to live according to Jesus, according to the foundation of His word, they will be built up as Holy priests, the living temple of God. Those who reject Jesus, their lives will stumble and fall. They will find the fate of full separation from God. This is why we want to make sure we are following the example of Jesus, obeying His word. Today we are going to the glory of God revealed and how those who witnessed were changed. Join us for Water to Wine: a taste of what is to come.

    Calling of the Disciples: Peter
    Series: Past Sermons
    We have looked at most of the disciples so far. Today we come to probably one of the most well known disciple, Peter. We know more about the life of Peter than any other disciple which means we can trace his growth as a disciple. His journey of faith. That is what discipleship is as well. A journey. Join us as meet Peter and see what we need to do ask we walk the discipleship journey. #stjoecoc #comeandsee #Foundation2023 #anunwaveringfaith

    Calling of the Disciples: Philip
    Series: Past Sermons
    We all know that sharing the Gospel and telling others about Jesus is an essential part of being a disciple of Jesus. After His resurrection Jesus commanded all disciples to do this in Matthew 28. The disciples weren’t to keep the message to themselves, they had to pass it on. Just before His ascension Jesus was even more specific in directing His disciples. To the ends of the earth… The ends of the earth still need to hear the Gospel so this directive is just as much a part of our walk with Jesus today as it was back then. But knowing what we should do and actually doing it, can be two separate events can’t it. Join us as we meet Philip, who was called to go to the ends of the earth. #stjoecoc #comeandsee #Foundation2023 #anunwaveringfaith

    Calling of the Disciples: James and John
    Series: Past Sermons
    This year our theme is Foundation, having an unwavering faith. We are taking an in depth look at the life of Jesus. Right now, we are looking at the group of men called the disciples. 12 men that Jesus chose to bring the message of hope and salvation. We have looked at a few of the not so known disciples. Nathanael, and James the lesser. We looked at Andrew and last week we looked at Judas the betrayer. Today we are going to look at two disciples, brothers, James and John. Looking at this list we can have mixed thoughts. On one hand, they are the disciples, they walked with Jesus. They were handpicked by Jesus. And yet on the other hand, they are just normal men who are flawed. Join us as we meet James and John.

    Calling of the Disciples: Judas Iscariot
    Series: Past Sermons
    Do know a person called Judas? Judas is an uncommon name! I don’t think many of us would be surprised by that fact. What parent would want their child to be connected to such a character? Judas. The very mention of his name conjures all sorts of stereotypes. He’s shifty and untrustworthy. He’s calculating and double-minded. He’s the shadowy fringe member of the group. That’s the picture which comes to our mind when we think about Judas. Where does that come from? Join us as meet Judas Iscariot, a Disciple of Jesus Christ.

    Calling The Disciples : James the son of Alphaeus
    Series: Past Sermons
    There are lots of people throughout history who have done great things. And yet through the years, their deeds and their names get forgotten. How many of you have heard of Charles Deslondes, Deborah Sampson or Sybil Luddington? These are three people who made a significant impact on our country, and yet we do not recognize their names. The same can be said about our next disciple of Jesus Christ. Join us as we get to know James, Son of Alphaeus. #stjoecoc #comeandsee #Foundation2023 #anunwaveringfaith

    Jesus and The Nameless Father
    Series: Past Sermons
    On Mother’s Day we looked at the nameless mother found in Matthew 15:21-28. Through her actions and faith in Jesus we saw some great lessons. Today is Father’s Day. Many people have said that on Mother’s Day we hear messages about how to honor and love a mother. On Father’s Day we hear messages about how a father needs to stand up and be better. Looking back over my sermons, that is the general theme. Instead of following that basic routine, I want to look at the nameless father found in Mark 9 and see some lessons this father did right, and that all of us can do as well.

Life Groups will be kicking back off in Sept. Life Groups are different from a basic Bible study. These small groups help grow true disciples through living life together with other believers. When you join a Life Group, you involve yourself in the gaining and processing of biblical knowledge in community, to grow in relationship with God and each other. In Life Groups, you will be encouraged together, rejoice together, and more. Through Life Groups, you will have opportunities to Connect with God and each other; Grow in your faith, and Serve one another in the name of Christ. 

 If you want to join a Life Group or are interested in hosting a Life Group, please let Donny know and he will help you get plugged in.


Have you experienced the loss of a someone you cared for? The journey of grief is a painful process, and you do not need to walk it alone. We would like to encourage you to come to the special support group offered here at St. Joe Church of Christ called Grief Share.

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.
