Our Beliefs

Who We Are and What We Believe


We of the Wetzel Road Church of Christ are a community of believers united in faith and by our desire to be “Christians only.” We believe that God has spoken finally and authoritatively through His Son, Jesus, and that His will is revealed to us in Scripture, which we seek to use as our only guide for belief and practice.


We understand the New Testament to teach that persons become Christ’s followers through a process that includes personal faith in Jesus (Rom. 5:1-2), turning away from sin (what the Bible calls “repentance”—Acts 17:30-31), and baptism (immersion in water) for forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38; Rom. 6:1-4). We understand that when one becomes a follower of Christ, one receives the gift of God’s Spirit (Acts 2:38; 5:32), and one enters Christ’s body, the church (1 Cor. 12:13).


We believe that God works in our lives through His Spirit to transform us into the Christ’s likeness (2 Cor. 3:18) and that we are called to put out of our lives things like sexual immorality, hatred, jealousy, selfishness, and rage, and to replace them with what the Bible calls the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal. 5:19-26). We believe that as a community—and as individuals—we are called to serve others (Gal. 6:10).


When we meet each Sunday, our worship—like that we read about in the New Testament—is centered around the celebration of the Lord’s Supper, and includes singing, prayer, giving, and the study and proclamation of God’s Word.


We invite you to visit us anytime and to join with us in our quest to be faithful followers of our Lord.
