Welcome to Farmville Church of Christ! We are excited to tell you about the various ministries that make up this church body. You will find our church family loving, caring and supportive. With wonderful worship, meaningful bible studies, youth groups, young adult groups, and senior adult outreaches, it would be a privilege to have you join us. Together we can fellowship and praise the Lord Jesus Christ, and make a difference in the community in which we live.
We believe that Jesus is the Christ---the Son of the Living God, who came to earth in human flesh, born of a virgin, lived a perfect sinless life, died as a sacrifice for our sins, raised from the grave and is enthroned in Heaven and will some day come back to receive His own. We accept the Bible as the written Word of God and final authority in our lives. Salvation comes by placing complete trust in Him as Lord and Savior, turning away from sin to live for Him and being baptized into Christ that we may exhibit God's Holy Spirit in our new found life.
"Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield: my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song ."
Psalm 28: 6,7
A dramatic change occurs in the mood of the Psalm at verse 6. The author began to praise God for hearing and answering his prayer. His plea gave way to adoration, an expression of his faith and gratitude.
