The Bemidji Church of Christ is a non-denominational group of believers. We believe that the Holy Bible is the true word of God and thus holds the key to godly living.

We do not have a headquarters, we believe Christ is the head of the Church (Colossians 1:18) and that the Biblical plan for leadership includes elders, evangelists and teachers and for them to teach and equip all Christians to be ready to serve. Ephesians 4:11-16

We are a small but active group that enjoys being together and we love having more people join us!

All this newness of life is from God, who brought us back to himself through what Christ did. And God has given us the task of reconciling people to him. 20 We are Christ’s ambassadors, and God is using us to speak to you. We urge you, as though Christ himself were here pleading with you, Be reconciled to God!

2 Corinthians 5:18 & 20

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV)

We strive to follow God’s plan for the church as it is shown in the New Testament, including meeting weekly for communion, teaching, prayer, encouraging, serving, and praising God together.

Acts 2:41-47

What to Expect

Be prepared to Worship… Be prepared to Learn… Be prepared to make new Friends!
If you are planing a visit to the Church of Christ you might be wondering what happens and what it will be like. Here is a little introduction so hopefully you will feel at ease.

Sunday mornings provide a traditional sermon for the adults, as well as children’s classes for the children.  The Elders and other men of the church takes turns preaching and teaching, so you will hear a variety of styles. The sermons and classes typically last somewhere from 30-45 minutes. There are various small group Bible studies available throughout the week.

Every Sunday morning we have a time set apart (during the singing time) when we have communion (or also called the Lord’s supper). This is a time we use to remember all that Jesus went through when he died on the cross to save us. For the communion the men will pray up front and then a couple of trays are passed around through the benches. One tray holds a small piece of unleavened bread which represents Christ’s body, The other tray holds little cups of grape juice which represents Christ’s blood that was shed for us. Communion is open to anybody who wishes to partake but should be done with understanding of what it is about.

On Sunday mornings we start at 10:15 am with a fellowship time. We also meet on Wednesday nights at 5:30 at the church building.

For all of the services we start with a time of Singing. We enjoy a wide variety of music, including hymns and praise choruses. Most commonly we sing accompanied by a piano but also use a praise band, bluegrass band, guitar, and sing accapella (just voices).

We have age separated Sunday school classes from 9:30-10 on Sundays. After the singing and communion are over, children ages 3-6 can go to a children’s church class during the sermon. We encourage children of different ages to be together, so have formatted our classes to fit general age groups. (3-11). If a child is shy and reluctant to go, a parent/caretaker is welcome to go with them and stay as long as needed. We do have a n un-staffed nursery available for parents to use as well.
