We are the church described in the New testament in the 21st century.

The Church is to be the "pillar and support of the truth" (1 Tim. 3:14-15) and we believe that when we follow the Scriptures it will produce Christians just as it did in the first century (Acts 2:38-42). As such we do not hold a formalized creed or statement of faith but instead, rely on the Bible alone for spiritual teachings and practice (2 Timothy 3:15-17) We accept the Bible as being both verbally inspired and infallible in content (2 Pet. 1:20-21; 1 Cor. 2:11-13). Consequently, when the Bible speaks upon any given subject, its pronouncement is accepted as final.

We are non-denominational.

It is our sincere desire to be non-denominational. Neither are we inter-denominational. It is our wish and purpose to wear no other name than Christ's and to be known simply as Christians, members of the body of Christ. Such was clearly true of the Lord's people in the first century (Acts 11:26; 1 Pet.4:16; Eph. 1:22-23; Col. 1:18; Rom. 16:16). We refer to ourselves as the Church at Las Vegas, the church of Christ, the Lord's church, or some other scriptural description, not in an attempt to be "sectarian," but to identify ourselves as the church belonging to Christ. Jesus Christ is the head, the Savior, the purchaser, the redeemer and the foundation for the Church. (Ephesians 1:22,23,5:23-26, Acts 20:28, 1 Corinthians 3:11).

We are excited about the Great Commission

We believe that the Good News about Jesus is what God uses to call mankind to Himself (2 Thessalonians 2:13-14, Romans 1:16-17). When that message of salvation is proclaimed, each person then becomes responsible to make a choice concerning what they have heard. Those that accept the truth of that message repent of their sins, confess Jesus as their Lord, and are then baptized into Christ for the forgiveness of their sins and to receive God's Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38-41). Thus a person is born again and added to His Church. (Titus 3:3-7, Mark 16:16, Acts 22:16, Galatians 3:26-27, Colossians 2:9-12, 1:13-14) The Church is not something that you can "join" or be "voted" into by men! The Lord Himself adds individuals to His Church when they obey the gospel (Romans 6:17-18, Acts 2:47).

* Our Plea For Unity.

We plead for unity among all who obediently respond to the doctrines and commandments given in the New Testament. Such is in harmony with the prayer of Jesus and the pleadings of the apostle (Jn. 17:20- 21; 1 Cor. 1:10; Eph. 4:1-6). We consider such unity to be possible, or Jesus would not have prayed for it. We also note that unity and love for each other was a mark of discipleship in the early churches (Jn. 13:34-35; Acts 2:44-46; Acts 4:32). And since division has always been the result of departure from "the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" (Jude 3), we believe that division can be healed by a return to the revealed word of God.

Encouraging Scriptures


Adult Sunday School Scripture for
August 3, 2014:
2 Corinthians 1:3-11
(NIV)

   Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort. We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.

Scripture Reading for
August 3, 2014:
Acts 8:26-35
(NIV)

   Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Go south to the road—the desert road—that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” So he started out, and on his way he met an Ethiopian eunuch, an important official in charge of all the treasury of the Kandake (which means “queen of the Ethiopians”). This man had gone to Jerusalem to worship, and on his way home was sitting in his chariot reading the Book of Isaiah the prophet. The Spirit told Philip, “Go to that chariot and stay near it.” Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked.
   “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. This is the passage of Scripture the eunuch was reading:

   “He was led like a sheep to the slaughter,
     and as a lamb before its shearer is silent,
     so he did not open his mouth.
   In his humiliation he was deprived of justice.
     Who can speak of his descendants?
     For his life was taken from the earth.”

   The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?” Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus.





Adult Sunday School Scriptures for
August 10, 2014:
1.  2 Corinthians 1:23-24
(NIV)

   I call God as my witness—and I stake my life on it—that it was in order to spare you that I did not return to Corinth. Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, because it is by faith you stand firm.

2.  2 Corinthians 2:1-11 (NIV)

   So I made up my mind that I would not make another painful visit to you. For if I grieve you, who is left to make me glad but you whom I have grieved? I wrote as I did, so that when I came I would not be distressed by those who should have made me rejoice. I had confidence in all of you, that you would all share my joy. For I wrote you out of great distress and anguish of heart and with many tears, not to grieve you but to let you know the depth of my love for you.

Forgiveness for the Offender

   If anyone has caused grief, he has not so much grieved me as he has grieved all of you to some extent—not to put it too severely. The punishment inflicted on him by the majority is sufficient. Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him. Another reason I wrote you was to see if you would stand the test and be obedient in everything. Anyone you forgive, I also forgive. And what I have forgiven—if there was anything to forgive—I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

Scripture Reading for
August 10, 2014:
Acts 8:36-40
(NIV)

   As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized? ” And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him. When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing. Philip, however, appeared at Azotus and traveled about, preaching the gospel in all the towns until he reached Caesarea.
