Welcome to East Wood church of Christ in Paris, Tennessee.
We are so happy you have stopped by our website, and we pray you will feel the need to stop by in person and participate in our worship services and Bible studies. We enjoy having visitors!
Our Services are conducted in a simple, spiritual way following only the New Testament pattern. We encourage people today to look for spiritual edification and enlightenment, rather than entertainment.
You Will Not Be Embarrassed
When you visit us, you will be a respected guest. We speak our convictions with kindness and courtesy. You will not be insulted or embarrassed in our midst. Our assembly is a simple devout period of worship. We gather to sing, study and pray together.
Our Worship Is Simple
Our music is composed of a capella singing and everyone is encouraged to participate. Our prayers are fervent appeals to God. Our sermons are Christ-centered, Bible-filled, and designed to be understandable, in order to teach and encourage those in attendance. Anyone desiring to become a Christian is afforded an opportunity at each assembly.
Contributions are made on Sunday by members of the congregation to support the work of the church. Visitors may give but are under no obligation to do so. The Lord's Supper is observed by Christians every Sunday as instituted by Jesus (Matthew 26:26-28). It is a memorial supper of the Lord's death (1 Corinthians 11:24-25). Unleavened bread and the fruit of the vine symbolize the body and blood of Jesus (1 Corinthians 10:16).
The church of Christ exists to please God and to serve one another in pleasing God.
Striving to maintain the organization, doctrine and worship of the New Testament church. The term church of Christ (Romans 16:16) is not used as a denominational designation but rather as a descriptive term indicating that the church belongs to Christ.
With No Creed But The Bible
Exalting only Jesus Christ as the head of the church and His Gospel as the only source of authority and doctrine.
With Only A Bible Name
Just a local congregation of people who call themselves Christians, and who wish to be one of the churches of Christ as mentioned in Romans 16:16.
That Does Not Exalt Men
Our preachers wear no distinguishing title or dress. Christ is to have preeminence in the church which is His body, (Colossians 1:18).
The Bible is the Final Word!
