Who are these people who assemble at 21 West Lancaster Road in Orlando, Florida? The answer is very simple we are Christians and Christians only – Acts 11:26. We wear no human names nor identify ourselves with any religious groups or denominations. We gladly wear the name Christ gave to us in the scriptures – 1 Peter 4:16.
You will notice a sign on the front of our building saying we are a “church of Christ” which simply means we are a group of people who belong to Christ and are willing to submit to His authority in all things – Acts 20:28.
What should you expect when you visit us?
When you enter the building you will find a group of friendly people who will greet you in a warm manner – Mark 12:31.
We want to make you feel right at home. We will help you find your way to the appropriate class or assembly.
You will not be singled out or asked to identify yourself publicly as you are our honored guest, however you may be asked to sign our Guest Book so we can have a record of your visit with us.
You will find a worship service that is simple, reverent, and sincere which provides an atmosphere conducive to worship – 1 Cor. 14:33, 40.
The acts of worship are based solely on the scriptures – Col. 3:17. We will only observe those acts of worship for which we have Bible authority.
We will participate in the following acts of worship each Lord’s day:Singing – Col. 3:16; Eph. 5:19, Giving – 1 Cor. 16:1-2, Lord’s Supper – 1 Cor. 11:23-29; Acts 20:7, Prayer - Acts 2:42; 12:5, Preaching and teaching – Mk. 16:15, Acts 5:42; 1 Cor. 15:1-2
The Pine Castle church of Christ has no creed in the sense of a humanly formulated statement containing official articles of faith, but we do seek to speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where it is silent – 1 Peter 4:11.
We believe it is the inspired word of God and it and it alone can provide the instructions for our Salvation. You will be able to study about Authority and how it is established from God’s Word. At Pine Castle we will do our best to duplicate and follow the example of the early church during New Testament times in everything we do in regard to the work and worship of the church.
