What is the Silver Spring Church of Christ?

link to the Spanish Ministries link to directions



A better question would be who is the Silver Spring Church of Christ? We are a body of people who believe that Jesus Christ is Lord -- meaning that God lived on earth in the form of Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus Christ taught us how to live, died for our sins, rose from the dead (to demonstrate that He really was God) and now sits at the right hand of the Father.

Our congregation consists of people from every race, of many languages and nationalities (about 25 nations represented on a typical Sunday morning!), of all ages, educational levels, marital statuses, and economic levels.

We are all sinners who have thrown ourselves on the grace of God, and we live with a joy and peace because God graciously forgives. God's Holy Spirit lives in us, and changes us from what we should otherwise be without Him.

"Guns, Bombs, and Tragedy"

Have you been reading or hearing the news lately? Unbelievable is the word that comes to my mind. I mean, what is going on? I've lived a pretty long time and I never recall times like these in our country. Oh yes we have had wars with Germany, Japan, and other nations which were also horrible resulting in many lost lives of our citizens. But these current atrocities are happening in our towns and neighborhoods. As I said before, what is going on? As best as I can understand it, Satan is smiling and laughing much of the time since he seems to be winning the war and stealing our hearts to serve him rather than our God in heaven. Our Bible says clearly in Romans, chapter 6 and verse 23, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." The real question is who are we serving? Is Satan our Lord or Jesus Christ? You and I both know the answer to that question? Hopefully we have received by faith Jesus Christ as the Son of God and our personal Lord and Savior!

Yes I understand that we do not live totally sin free lives and we commit dumb, stupid mistakes probably each day. But the urgent question is have we sincerely received Jesus Christ as the Lord of our lives? If so then we have a way to defeat Satan and live victoriously by the forgiving love and saving grace of God our Father in heaven and His Son. Praise Him from Whom all blessings flow. Perhaps at the top of that list of blessings is His love for you and me which prompts Him to forgive us time and time again. Note carefully in verse 1 of Romans 6 we read "Shall we go on sinning that grace may increase?" Of course the answer is no. We must not attempt to trade upon God's grace. We Christians must recall that we died to our former lives of sin and were baptized into Christ and into His death, verse 3. As a child I loved my mother and wanted to please her. No I was not perfect and was punished when I misbehaved. Her love for me drew me close to her again and again. So it will be with God to an even greater degree.

Isn't it grand to be a Christian, isn't it grand? So says the song we often sing in our Worship Assembly. How true it is! As Christians we shall have nothing to do with guns and bombs but rather strive to have peace and harmony with our fellow human beings. Holy Scripture teaches us that we are to love God with all of our heart and we are also to love our fellow man (woman).  Are you a Christian reading this article? Then pray for greater love for Him and your fellow human beings. If not yet a Christian then consider your immediate need to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, resolve to turn away from any sins in your life (repent), and follow His command to be baptized for the forgiveness of all past sins in your life. Wow! What a blessing that is indeed!  Your experience will be the opposite of tragedy. You will be filled with an awareness of God's redeeming love for you. We stand ready to help and assist you and please know we love you and are praying for your salvation in Jesus Christ, the Prince of PEACE.

"The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, 'The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!'  The LORD is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the LORD."

Lamentations 3:22-26
