A Courteous Welcome
A courteous welcome awaits you at the Helton Drive Church of Christ. We believe you will find a warm atmosphere and sincerity in our goal of serving God as our Father through His Son, Jesus Christ. We welcome you because we want all people to have the same relationship with God that we have as children of God. We believe this is important because it affects your salvation. We are concerned about eternal and spiritual things.
Helton Drive Church of Christ
The church meeting at 2250 Helton Drive in Florence, Alabama is a spiritual body. If you want entertainment, secular education or a social club, you won't find that with us. What you will find is a group of Christians who have joined together to serve and worship God collectively and to encourage one aonther in our individual discipleship of Jesus. We are non-denominational and independent of any other church or organization. We answer to no authority other than Jesus Christ.
The Bible is our single discipline. We have no other creed book or manual as our guide. We believe the Bible to be the inerrant word of God, given through the Holy Spirit and that it teaches us all we need to know about being a Christian. We teach it diligently by using book, chapter and verse in our preaching. We believe all things must be based on a "thus saith the Lord" (1 Peter 4:11).
Our functions are just as simple as you read about in the Bible. When we meet for worship on Sunday we will have congregational singing (Ephesians 5:19), joining together in prayer (1 Timothy 2:8), commemoration of the Lord's Supper (1 Corinthians 11:23-27), opportunity for the members to contribute financially (1 Corinthians 16:2), and have a sermon from God's word (Acts 20:7). On Sunday morning and Wednesday evening we meet for Bible study with classes for all ages.
The overall work of the church consists of teaching God's word to all people, caring for the benevolent needs of Christians and worshiping God. We seek to practice and limit ourselves to those things found in the Scriptures.
If you are looking for a church that is only involved in spiritual activities and follows only the Bible as its creed, if you are looking for 1st century Christianity in the 21st century and want only Jesus as your Lord and Master, then come and visit us. We'll be looking for you!
Our Meeting Place
We are located at 2250 Helton Drive in Florence, Alabama. To find our building turn onto Helton Drive from either Florence Blvd or Cox Creek Parkway. We are located on the East side of Helton Drive just north of the YMCA. Our building is modest by most standards, with no extravagant ornaments or displays. It is a simple place for worship to God and edification of the chruch that meets there, yet it is comfortable and roomy.
