A People Loving The Lord and Obeying His Truth
Welcome to the Hartville church of Christ in Hartville, Ohio. We are so happy you have stopped by our website, and we would love for you to stop by in person and experience our worship services and bible studies. We enjoy having visitors! To assist you in feeling comfortable when you visit us, we want to share a little about ourselves with you. We are a group of people striving to serve and honor Christ. We are committed to serving God, His truth, and seeking and saving the lost, Matthew 28:18-20.
We are a congregation that is independent, with no head except for our living Savior, Jesus Christ, Ephesians 1:22-23. We are organized autonomously. We currently have two elders. Elders are God’s shepherds who protect, guide, and care for the flock. We also have two servants who are in an official capacity called deacons, 1Timothy 3:8-13.
We are committed to preaching and teaching the Word of God in love and in truth, Ephesians 4:15. We believe in maintaining Biblical balance. This means that while we want to follow the truth we will do so in a loving, gentle manner, 2 Timothy 2:24-25. It also means that we seek neither to make laws where God has not made them nor do we seek to take away the laws that God did make. In this way we seek to follow the motto that says “In matters of faith, unity; in matters of opinion, liberty; in all things, love.”
If you have any questions about what we believe or what we do, please contact us. We would love to study God’s word together with you. If you’re in the area, please stop by and visit with us. You will be our honored guest.
