It is our privilege to introduce to you by way of this website the Lord's church meeting at 1312 E. Edison Ave, Sunnyside, WA 98944. We know that many are unfamiliar with our beliefs and practices, so we take this opportunity to acquaint you with our program of work.

We conduct Bible classes for all ages each Sunday at 2:00 p.m. We have worship services each Sunday at 3:00 p.m. during which we engage in acts of worship prescribed in the New Testament and a sermon from God's Word is presented. A mid-week Bible study is conducted each Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. Our Bible study classes are held for about 45 minutes. Competent teachers direct students in a personal investigation of the Bible. All students are taught respect for God, for parents, and for the country in which we live. Freedom of expression is encouraged in the classes so that all Bible-related questions can be discussed. Only the Bible and Bible-centered materials are used in these classes. Regular attendance at these services will enable one to enlighten his mind, fortify his will, and encourage others to serve the Lord in full assurance of faith.

Occasionally, special preaching services are conducted on consecutive week-nights. If the speaker or speakers are assigned special topics these may be referred to as "lectures" or they may simply be referred to as "gospel meetings."

In a brief introduction such as this, it is not possible to state every point of our identity in detail. We believe, of course, in living clean, upright, and godly lives and in accepting and following the New Testament. Therefore, we consider the New Testament as the ONLY guide in matters of religion. So, where the scriptures speak, we speak; where the scriptures are silent, we are silent. The Word of God is all-sufficient for ALL the spiritual needs of man, 2Tim 3:16,17. We believe people are saved and added to the Lord's church today in the same manner they were in New Testament times. Please note: Acts 2:1-42; 8:26-39.

THE WORSHIP OF THE LORD'S CHURCH

Since the New Testament says: "Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son." 2John 9 (NKJV), churches of Christ believe that the worship of the church should consist of only those elements found in the worship of the New Testament church. The elements of worship which we find authorized in the New Testament are: prayer (Acts 2:42); singing (Col 3:16); gospel preaching (Acts 20:7); partaking of the Lord's supper (1Cor 11:23-30); and contributing of our means (1Cor 16:1,2). Partaking of the Lord's supper and contributing of our means are only done on the Lord's day since that is the only time we find the New Testament church engaging in these acts of worship.

All such actions of worship are privileges of the members of the Lord's church and in no way will be forced upon any visitors that we might have. Anyone having a question about anything taught or practiced in our assemblies will be given an opportunity to present that question as long as it is done decently and in order (1Cor 14:40)

If you have any questions concerning the material presented here in this introduction or any material presented on this website, you may send them to Jerry Henderson via email at: jerry@hendersons.net or send them to Sunnyside church of Christ 1312 E. Edison Ave; Sunnyside, WA 98944. We will do our best to give an answer from the word of God, the Bible. Included on this website is material by various authors. If your question regards material by someone other than myself, I will do my best to present your question to the appropriate author, if I am unable to do that I will do my best to answer your question myself. We simply desire to teach and practice the TRUTH as revealed in the New Testament so we can be pleasing to God.

Jerry Henderson, preacher
