Hickman Mills Church of Christ is a family oriented group of people that has accepted Christ Jesus as our Lord. We have let our roots grow down into him, and our lives are being built on Him and in Him. We believe God has saved us by his grace. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us.
We are members of God’s family; we are His house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets, and Christ Jesus is the cornerstone. We are carefully joined together in Him, becoming a holy temple for the Lord. Through Him we are being made part of this dwelling where God lives by his Spirit. We realize our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in us and was given to us by God.
Because God chose us to be the holy people He loves, we strive to clothe ourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. We want to make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends us. But above all, we want to clothe ourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.
Our lives are filled with the message about Christ, in all its richness. We teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom He gives. When we assemble we sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever we do or say, we do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. Each Sunday we share in communion; as we break the bread, we share in the body of Christ; when we bless the cup at the Lord’s Table, we share in the blood of Christ. This communion reminds us of God’s sacrifice for reconciling us to HIM through our Lord and Savior. We meet three times each week to praise and worship our God as well as encourage and motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
