Welcome to the Fulton, Mississippi church of Christ website. We are glad you found us.
The purpose of this congregation is to be a church of Jesus Christ just like we can find in the pages of our New Testaments. This site is designed to aid you in your study of God's word, to help you to a closer walk with God, and to provide you with information about the Lord's church and the work that we seek to do for God in northern Mississippi.

What to Expect When You Visit
You may be hesitant to attend worship services at an unfamiliar place, with people whom you do not know. To help relieve your apprehension we would like to explain what to expect when you visit us.
You will find no exclusive pews for any person. All are greeted with equal courtesy and kindness. (Acts 10:34-35; Galatians 3:28)
Order and Reverence
You will not be confused by many people speaking or praying at the same time. Good order will prevail at every service (I Cor. 14:33). You will observe one of the brethren leading the congregation reverently and quietly in prayer (I Tim. 2:1-5). If you visit on Sunday, the Lord's day, you will observe the congregation eating bread and drinking the fruit of the vine in memory of the death of Christ (Matt. 26:26-29). We do this on the first day of every week, like Christians in the first century (Acts 20:7). You will not find special collections taken at every service. You will see that a collection is taken on the Lord's day (I Cor. 16:1-3). This congregation is supported by the free will offerings of its members. We do not ask nonmembers of this congregation to financially support the work here when the collection is taken up.
You will find no beautiful organ or piano or band music. Our music is vocal. Like the first century Christians we will engage in the singing of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs (Eph. 5:19). The words used in our songs will be easy to understand (I Cor. 14:15) and from the heart (Col. 3:16).
Bible - Our Only Guide
You will find that the Bible will be the textbook to which references are made in our classes and in our sermons. We have classes for all ages on Sunday morning and on Wed. evening. You will never be asked to accept what some man says about the Bible, we want you to read the Bible for yourself to see "whether those things are so" (Acts 17:11). You can quietly observe and study that which you see and hear (I Cor. 14:40). You will never be embarrassed or singled out in any way for some sort of testimony or demonstration. You will hear obedience to the will of Christ emphasized as necessary to salvation: faith in Christ as taught in the Gospel (Rom. 10:17); repentance (Luke 24:47); confession of faith in Christ (Rom. 10:9-10); and baptism for the remission of sins ( Acts 2:38).
You Too Can Be Just A Christian
We strive to worship and to serve God in the same way the early disciples did. Christ is our only creed and the Scriptures our only guide. The Bible is final authority - (Col. 3:17 and Matt. 23:9). The Bible can be understood by all (I Peter 2:2). We are an autonomous group...that is, independent and self-governed as God's Word directs.
If we could not understand the Bible - God would be defective in power (not being able to give us a clear revelation) and God would be lacking in goodness (not willing to give it to us). Clearly then we can be simply Christians. We can serve God without belonging to any denomination, its laws and obligations. If simplicity and freedom appeals to you, please contact us or better still come and visit.
