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!

    I Am: The Way The Truth & The Life
    Series: Past Sermons
    We have working our way through the Gospel of John to study the words of Jesus, as He walked around Israel speaking to the crowds, performing miracles, and teaching in parables. People were following Him around everywhere, everyone wanted to know who He is. Who is this man who makes blind people see, and who makes paralyzed people able to walk again? Why is He here, what does He want, what is He going to do? Everyone wanted to know! Jesus even asked His disciples, "Who do people say that I am?” They said, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” Everyone was guessing, trying to figure out just who this man is. Today people have opinions about who Jesus is too. Join us for I Am: The Way, The Truth and The Life. #stjoecoc #ComeAndSee #Momentum2024 #PreparingForWhatIsToCome
  • Mar 6, 2024I Am: The Resurrection & The Life
    Mar 6, 2024
    I Am: The Resurrection & The Life
    Series: Past Sermons
    We’ve been spending that last several Sundays studying the 7 notable I Am statements of Jesus. As people who live in a world and culture where Jesus and the church are well known, we sometimes can be guilty of taking Jesus for granted. However, for the people Jesus was preaching too, they hadn’t heard the gospel yet, and they didn’t yet know who Jesus was.
     
    The first I am statement by Jesus was I Am the Bread of Life. This was followed by I Am the Light of the World, then I am the Gate for the sheep. Travis Wilhelm from Trine CCH shared a great message about Jesus’ fourth statement, I am the Good Shepherd.
     
    As we progress through these statements, we are getting closer and closer in the Gospel of John to the crucifixion of Jesus. This statement we are looking at this week took place during the resurrecting of Lazarus. Join us as we hear I Am: The Resurrection and The Life. #stjoecoc #ComeAndSee #Momentum2024 #PreparingForWhatIsToCome

    I Am: The Door
    Series: Past Sermons
    We are on week 3 of the I Am series, studying the 7 I Am statements about Jesus that reveal things about who He is, and what He does. These next two statements take place in the same story, and they both revolve around this metaphor of the sheep and the shepherd. Jesus says that sheep recognize the voice of their shepherd. Join us as we hear the Shepherd in I Am: The Door. #stjoecoc #ComeAndSee #Momentum2024 #PreparingForWhatIsToCome

    Mar 6, 2024
    I Am: The Light
    Series: Past Sermons
    Last week we began a new sermon series called “I Am”. During the course of His ministry, Jesus made 7 statements beginning with the phrase “I Am” that both identify Himself as God incarnate, and directly reveal something about His character and mission. Through studying these “I Am” statements, we will learn more about the character and nature of Jesus, and maybe even experience the gospel in a new way. Join us for I Am: The Light. #stjoecoc #ComeAndSee #Momentum2024 #PreparingForWhatIsToCome

    Good morning! Today we begin a new series.

We are going to spend the next few weeks studying these statements and learning more about the nature of Jesus.

    What would happen this morning if we treated sin like a disease - a disease that drains our energy and sucks the life out of us? What if we no longer were entangled in the baggage that weighs us down and is killing us spiritually? Imagine how much more we could accomplish for the kingdom of God! Imagine how much less stress and anxiety we would feel. Imagine a life of true freedom, real power and unstoppable momentum that empowers us to expand God’s Kingdom.

    Christmas at the Cross: Peace
    Series: Past Sermons
    So far in our Christmas series, we have looked at how Christmas and the Cross is where we were given Hope and Joy. These gifts of God were given at the mangers, but not truly evident until the cross and empty tomb. This morning we are going to look at the scripture of Luke 2:13-14 to find what all people long for… Peace. Join us for Christmas at the Cross. #stjoecoc #comeandsee #Foundation2023 #anunwaveringfaith

    Christmas at the Cross: Joy
    Series: Past Sermons
    Last week we started our Christmas series, Christmas at the Cross by looking at the Hope off Christmas. How from the nativity to the cross, to the empty tomb, Jesus offers us true hope. Today we are going to look at joy. This joy started in that manger, but became evident on the cross. Join us as we celebrate the gift of joy with Christmas at the Cross. #stjoecoc #comeandsee #Foundation2023 #anunwaveringfaith

 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.
