It's an honor and pleasure to have you visit our website! Our desire is to aid you in your growth toward God as we help one another on our path to Heaven. We look forward to an opportunity to meet you and get to know you. If we can be of any assistance, please let us know.

The church of Christ at Fifth and Grape is an un-denominational congregation of the Lord’s church that one reads about in the New Testament. We are overseen by a plurality of elders and strive to be Christ centered and Bible based. To this end, we call Bible things by Bible names, and do Bible things in Bible ways. 

ELDERS

The church in Scripture is always led by men who are called "Elders", "Shepherds", "Bishops", "Overseers", or "Pastors". Our Elders are dedicated men of faith who lead us and teach us through their lives as much as they do through their teachings. We are glad to call them our Shepherds. 

PREACHERS

Along with our dedicated Elders, Fifth & Grape is blessed with two great men who preach and teach regularly. They are both men who live for the Lord and show us how to do the same.

DEACONS

Deacons are servants of the local church. Fifth & Grape has men in place across different positions around our family to make sure the goal of the local church can be done the way the Lord would have it.

The church that Christ built is not a denomination. The word "denomination" gives the idea that there are many churches of different kinds. While there are numerous geographical locations of the Lord’s church (Romans 16:16), the Bible shows that there is one true church built by Christ.  In Ephesians 4:4-6 Paul discusses unity. He says, "There is one body and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling..." This one body is the church.  Ephesians 1:22-23 says, "And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of Him that fills all in all."

MORE ABOUT US:

What must we do to be added to this church? The commandments are given in the New Testament. Having heard the word, we must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (John 8:24). We must repent of our sins (Luke 13:3; Acts 17:30).  We must confess Christ before men (Acts 8:37; Romans 10:9-10). Then we must be immersed in water to wash away our sins (Acts 2:38; 22:16). When we have been washed from our sins, we can walk in newness of life (Romans 6:4; 2 Corinthians 5:17). However, this is not the end. It is the beginning. If we are going to continue to enjoy the cleansing power of Jesus' blood, we must continue to walk in the light (according to His word). We are told this in 1 John 1:7.
