Welcome to Farmville Church of Christ

Welcome

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.

What We Believe

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.

Reflection

“But the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary you have found favor with God.  You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.”

Luke 2: 30, 31


“God’s favor does not automatically bring instant success or fame.  His blessing on Mary, the honor of being the mother of the Messiah, would lead to much pain: her peers would ridicule her; her fiance would come close to leaving her; her son would be rejected and murdered.  But through her son would come the world’s only hope, and this is why Mary has been praised by countless generations as the young girl who ‘found favor with God.’  Her submission was part of God’s plan to bring about our salvation.  If sorrow weighs you down and dims your hope, think of Mary and wait patiently for God to finish working his plan.”
