The Church

About Our Church

The Burlington Church of Christ is a loving congregation of baptized believers in Christ seeking to live out God’s calling for man. We seek to be true to the Bible which we believe to be the inspired word of God. We have no other spiritual authority or inspiration outside of the Bible. When you attend our Church you will be welcomed with love and concern. We endeavor to bring souls into a loving and eternal relationship with God through consistent study of the Bible and fellowship with his children. We have worship services on Sundays morning where the Word is preached. We also have Bible classes on Sundays mornings and Wednesdays evenings where we engage in in-depth studies of the Bible. We are confident that you will benefit spiritually from attending these gatherings. However, our mission extends beyond teaching. We also seek to actively demonstrate our love through benevolent action to meet physical needs. We have a homeless ministry which we regularly support because we understand the importance of meeting physical needs in addition to spiritual needs just as Christ did. We have Bible authorized leadership in the form of elders and deacons who are tasked with overseeing the direction and operation of the congregation. Our leaders are committed to welcoming you and providing the spiritual guidance and support that you may need.
