Walton Chapel Church of Christ in Lafayette, Tennessee

About Us

We are a local, independent congregation of God's people - believers who have been baptized into Christ for the remission of sins, and who are committed to living by faith in Christ. We seek no affiliation with any organization larger than, smaller than, or other than this local congregation. Our joint actions are based upon the things the Bible teaches that the local church is authorized to do.

We actively support the preaching of the gospel in this area, throughout the United States and overseas. We currently support brethren who preach in various states as well as in the Philippines.

We do not use entertainment as a means of drawing people to Christ. We believe the drawing power of the gospel is sufficient to properly influence the good and honest heart. We believe the entertainment of young people is a duty of the home, not the church.

Several faithful men and women of this congregation take an active part in teaching Bible classes. We offer Bible classes for all ages on Sunday morning and Wednesday night.

Each sermon is recorded and is available on CD or cassette, and these are available at no charge to anyone who requests a copy. Gospel meetings are held twice each year, usually in the summer and in the fall.

Public Worship
Following the New Testament pattern, we assemble together on the first day of every week to partake of the Lord's Supper and to sing, pray, teach and give of our means. While there is no formal ritual for us to follow, our assemblies are always conducted "decently and in order" (1 Corinthians 14:40). We follow the specific teachings and the examples shown in the New Testament for these acts of worship. This means we sing and make melody in our hearts to the Lord without man-made musical instruments (Ephesians 5:19), the leaders in our assemblies are faithful men of the congregation (1 Corinthians 14:34) and we offer the Lord's Supper and take up a collection for the needy saints on a weekly basis (1 Corinthians 16:1-2).

This congregation, in accordance with the teaching of the New Testament, has appointed elders to oversee the church, making sure it receives proper teaching and that it keeps pure. Elders watch in behalf of the souls of all members of this local church.

This church is willing and able to take care of the needs of its own members and other needy Christians. We are also aware of the responsibility each individual has towards the needs of his own family (1 Timothy 5:8, 16). Individual Christians are always interested in the plight of their fellow man and will continue to care for those outside of Christ who have genuine physical needs.
