Who we are:
At The West Fayetteville Church of Christ you will find a group of humble people seeking only to do Christ's will.
We are a non-denominational group of Christians.
The West Fayetteville Church of Christ is a local, independent congregation of believers who have been baptized into Christ for the remission of sins, and who are committed to living by faith in Christ. We have no affiliation with any organization larger than, smaller than, or other than this local congregation. Only "our like precious faith" (2 Peter 1:1) in the Word of God unites us with other Christians into One Faith (Ephesians 4:3-6)
We are autonomous and have no central headquarters or president. The head of this church is none other than Jesus Christ Himself (Ephesians 1:22-23). We are simply Christians following the teachings of Jesus and His apostles and followers found in the New Testament. The division of denominationalism is, in fact, contradictory to the teaching of the Bible. We are Christians only!
Our assemblies for worship feature these divinely-mandated activities:
• Praying to our heavenly Father (Acts 2:42; 1 Timothy 2:1-4).
• Acapella singing of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs (Colossians 3:16; Ephesians 5:19).
• Preaching and teaching God's Word that is Christ-centered, Bible-filled, inspirational, and understandable. (Acts 11:25-27; 20:7).
• Partaking of the Lord's supper (1 Corinthians 11:23-29) – Sunday only (Acts 20:7).
• Giving money for the Lord's work (2 Corinthians 9:6-7) – Sunday only (1 Corinthians 16:1-2).
The church family that is now known as the West Fayetteville Church of Christ began when a small group of Christians met together in 1987. This group of believers moved to 5272 Butternut Drive in Fayetteville, NC in 1991.
In 1999 a new auditorium was built and the old auditorium building was turned into classrooms and a resources room with a copier, books and materials for teachers.
The West Fayetteville Family works hard to maintain brotherly love and a close family atmosphere.
We believe the Bible teaches there are some responsibilities and functions which we are to perform as a local congregation and others as individual Christians (Matt. 18:15-17; 1 Tim. 5:16). We often spend social time with each other in our homes or in other ways outside of services, we do this as individuals and not as a church function. The work of the Lord's church is spiritual (Eph. 4:11,12; 1 Pet 2:9-10).
