About The Phillips Street Church of Christ
For over 50 years the Phillips Street Church of Christ has been a staple in the community of Dyersburg. For many years we have worked to insure that the citizens of this community have the opportunity to hear and know the soul-saving message of Jesus Christ. But while the Phillips Street Church of Christ has been around for decades, the church of Christ has been around for centuries, since A.D. 33 to be exact. It was established on the first Pentecost after the resurrection of Jesus Christ as was prophesied in the Old Testament (Isaiah 2:2-3) and fulfilled in the New Testament (Acts 2). It is God’s institution (1 Corinthians 1:2); the body of Christ (Colossians 1:18,24); God’s kingdom (John 3:5); the house of God (1 Timothy 3:15); God’s temple (1 Corinthians 3:16); and God’s dwelling place (Ephesians 2:19-22).
It is in Christ where salvation is found (Acts 4:12), therefore in the body of Christ (Ephesians 5:23); therefore in the church of Christ (Ephesians 5:22-32). It is not a denomination among denominations, but it is undenominational, anti-denominational, and pre-denominational. Its plea is to call Bible things by Bible names and do Bible things in Bible ways. The strictest respect is shown to the Bible as the verbally inspired, inerrant, and soul saving word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Romans 1:16), and we vow to never add to nor take away from the Holy Scriptures those things God has lovingly provided (Revelation 22:18-19). Rather the Bible only will be taught allowing it to interpret itself, realizing that God has provided all things that pertain unto life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3) and that He has preserve them in a way that we may know them and apply them (1 John 5:13).
It is our desire at Phillips Street to not only know and enjoy the love of God and hope of eternal life, but to share it with as many people as possible. For this reason we want you to know that you are now and always invited to come and visit us at any of our assemblies or any other time you might want to learn more about the church you read about in the New Testament.
In addition we want to help you in any other way that we can whether it be helping you study the Bible, visiting you, sending you reading material about the Bible and the church, or praying for you. Look around our website, investigate the information we’ve provided, watch some of our video materials, but most importantly come and see for yourself the great things that are happening at the Phillips Street Church of Christ: A Church Home in your Home Town!
