About Us

What do we believe?

We believe that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life.  No one comes to the father except through Him.  (John 14:6)  We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God; revealed directly from heaven to the writers and preserved intact through the centuries (2 Timothy 3:16-17).  We believe the Bible does not offer mere suggestions, nor is it outdated and irrelevant to the needs of modern society, but is timeless and applicable to all men.

What are our services like?
Our worship of God is not designed to be flashy entertainment.  Rather, it is a reverent and dignified offering of the heart in accordance with biblical guidelines.  We sing without the aid of musical instruments because the New Testament specifies this kind of music (Ephesians 5:19).  The Lord's Supper is observed every Sunday according to the practice of early Christians (Acts 20:7).  Prayers are offered by the congregation (Acts 12:5). A contribution is made by the members of the church every Sunday (1 Corinthians 16:1-2), but we do not solicit funds from those outside the church.  We also have lessons from the Scriptures at each service designed to give Bible instruction and to help make meaningful applications to daily life (Acts 2:42).

What To Expect When You Visit the Marquette Church of Christ on a Sunday Morning

Visiting a new church can sometimes be intimidating. We want to make your visit as pleasant as possible. You can expect a warm welcome and you can expect to be treated in a friendly and courteous manner. You will be considered an honored guest. Besides a friendly group of people, you may be wondering what you can expect when you visit us.

Sunday Morning Worship Service (11:00 AM)

Following the opening announcements, the congregation will engage in a period of singing praises and hymns in adoration of God. We invite you to grab a songbook from the rack on the back of the seat in front of you and sing along. You will no doubt notice that we sing without the accompaniment of musical instruments. Like the early Christians, we sing Acappella.

We come before God in prayer several times during the worship. The men of the congregation will lead the prayers so you won't have to worry that you will be put on the spot by being called on to pray publicly.

On Sundays members partake of the Lord's Supper. During this memorial, a plate of unleavened bread and a cup containing grape juice will be passed from person to person. It is up to you to decide if you will partake. This memorial is for Christians to remember the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Do not feel embarrassed if you prefer not to participate in the communion. Just pass the plate to the next person.

On Sundays we also make opportunity for the members to make a financial contribution. As commanded in the New Testament scriptures, we only take up a collection on the first day of the week. This collection is taken up in order to finance the work of the church. As our guest, you are not expected to contribute any money. However, if you wish to make a donation feel free to drop it in the collection plate as it is passed.

After this collection, the children of our congregation participate in "Coins for Christ".  Each week the members and children in the congregation save up their change to go towards a cause.  The children of the church go around and collect the coins and place them in a jar while a few songs are sung.  As our guest, you are not expected to contribute anything to this.  However, if you wish to make a donation feel free to hold it up and the children will come and get it from you.  Some of the causes that these funds go towards include: Local Benevolence, Orphan Sunday, Disaster Relief and other Churches in need.

There will be a period of bible preaching. The sermon will last around 30 minutes, give or take, and the speaker will frequently refer to the Bible citing book, chapter and verse. If you have any questions or comments about what is said in the sermon, the speaker will be happy to discuss it with you after the service is over.

Immediately following the sermon, an invitation will be extended during the singing of a song. The invitation is simply a convenient time and opportunity for anyone to go to the front of the auditorium to seek spiritual assistance. Some go forward requesting prayers to be made on their behalf. Others may respond to the invitation because they wish to obey the gospel call and become a Christian.

What To Expect When You Visit the Marquette Church of Christ on a Wednesday Night

Our Wednesday night services include singing, prayer, and a short devotional.  Usually lasting around an hour, this service is more informal and allows for in depth discussion of the scripture within a smaller group.  The first Wednesday of each month we have "Wonderful Wednesday".  Everyone meets at the building around 5:30pm and has a meal together followed by a night of singing and a short devotional.
