Franklin Church of Christ
We strive to follow Biblical examples of authority in all that we endeavor to do. We wish to be Christians only, and not recognized merely as another religious denomination. We hope that you will find it convenient to visit with us at some point, or to engage in a Bible study through mail or online. We look forward to hearing from you!
Meet Our Minister: Josh Lee
Joshua Lee began working with the congregation at Franklin in March 2013. Josh has a very good understanding of God's Word and how it applies to mankind. He is always willing to take the time to study with those who might have questions or wanting to know how to become a Christian.
Here is what you can expect when visiting us:
Courtesy and Kindness: First of all you will find that all who come will be greeted with courtesy and kindness. We understand that God does not want us to be a respecter of persons in the assembly (James 2:1-9), so no matter who visits, regardless of race, color, social status, etc., they will be warmly welcomed.
Scriptural Worship: When the service begins, you will notice that we only engage in acts of worship that are authorized by the New Testament. We want to worship God the way New Testament Christians did long ago, so we go to the New Testament to find out how to worship. In our service we will sing from the heart without any kind of instrumental accompaniment for the purpose of admonishing one another as well as to honor God (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16). We pray together (Acts 12:15), and study the Bible together (Acts 17:11). On the Lord's Day, Sunday, we come together to observe the Lord's Supper (Acts 20:7) by partaking of the unleavened bread and the fruit of the vine in memory of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Matthew 26:26-29). After the Lord's supper has been served, a collection is taken up from among the members of the congregation (1 Corinthians 16: 1,2). We do not ask non-members to contribute to this collection, nor do we take up any other collections throughout the week. We believe that only those acts of worship described in the New Testament are acceptable and pleasing to God. It is our prayer that you, too, will seek the worship that pleases God.
Order and Reverence: Not only is our worship scriptural, but it is orderly and reverent as well. God is not a God of confusion. He wants the worship service to be conducted "decently and in order" (1 Corinthians 14: 33,40). You will not be confused by many people speaking out or praying aloud at the same time. Neither will you find entertainment or recreational activities. We have come together to worship God and edify one another. We do not try to compete in any way with places of amusement. At no time will the audience be embarrassed or singled out for any sort of demonstration or testimony.
