Church of Christ

Come be with us this Sunday as we discuss the Origin of the Church. There are many theories about when the church, the kingdom of God, was established. It’s been said: The church was established before the foundation of the world; it began in the garden of Eden; it had its beginning in the days of Abraham; it began during the mission of John the Baptist, and/or the personal ministry of Jesus; it began on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2; it has not yet been established. Our study will take a look at how, when, and where the church began as revealed on the pages of the word of God.

We meet Sundays at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and Wednesdays at 7 p.m. in the Meeting Room of the Holiday Inn Express & Suites (Exit 11, I-70 & SR 46).

You may find us on the web at and on Facebook at Church of Christ at Terre Haute. You can join our bulletin mailing list and listen to audio recordings of sermons preached. It is our desire to hold fast the pattern of sound words and do all to the glory of God. Come investigate us. We have book, chapter, and verse for everything we teach and practice.
