LACOC (Laurel Avenue Church of Christ)
"Committed to Spiritual Enlightenment"
Located in the beautiful California, Bay Area, the Laurel Avenue Church of Christ offers congregants a place of comfort, hope and a peace of mind for all their worshiping needs. We are dedicated to spreading the word of God. We invite you to become a part of our growing congregation, and look forward to meeting you!
The Church of Christ is an Independent, Non-Denominational Congregation of baptized believers in Jesus Christ.
There are approximately 13,000 congregations of the churches of Christ in the United States, and thousands more, in over 100 countries worldwide.
We have no central headquarters or president. The head of the church is none other than Jesus Christ himself (Ephesians 1:22-23). Each congregation of the Church of Christ is autonomous, and it is the Word of God that unites us into One Faith (Ephesians 4:3-6).
We follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and his Apostles, and not the teachings of man. We are Christians only! The churches of Christ are united not by human doctrines or organizations, but by these simple shared beliefs:
-Jesus is God's Son, the only Lord and Savior of the Human Race.
-The Bible is the very Word of God and the only foundation of our faith and the only reliable guide for our lives.
*We do not accept human creeds or dogmas, as these serve only to divide believers and label them with denominational names.
*We wear only the name of Jesus Christ. We are simply Christians.
*No, we are not a perfect church or perfect people, to be sure.
*We are flawed people who cling to the truth and share His grace.
*We rejoice in the precious gifts and blessings the Lord has given us and we are eager to share them with you.
