BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS THAT LAST!
Seeking to reach the lost and bring people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ by providing opportunities for worship, fellowship, service, Bible study and development in the Christian life.

WHAT WE BELIEVE
The church of Christ dates back to the days of the New Testament (Romans 16:16). It was founded by Christ on the Day of Pentecost, A.D. 33 (Acts 2), just after His ascension back to heaven. In the years that followed, it rapidly grew to fill Jerusalem, then Judea, Samaria, and finally the whole Roman Empire (Acts 1:8; Colossians 1:23).
The Daytona Beach church of Christ is noted for its emphasis of teaching New Testament principles, and for its desire to seek and teach those in search of God’s truths. We believe that the New Testament authorizes all that is done in Christian worship (Colossians 3:17; Revelation 22:18–19).
Thus we try to strictly follow the New Testament. For this reason, only acappella music is used in worship services, and the Lord’s supper is observed every Sunday. We believe the Bible teaches that sinners are saved by faith, repentance, confession, and baptism (John 3:16; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Romans 10:9–10) and that a Christian must remain faithful to the Lord after conversion (Revelation 2:10).
We believe that Jesus is the Son of God (John 20:30– 31), that the Bible is the inspired of God (2 Timothy 3:16– 17), and that Jesus will return to take His kingdom (church) home to God (1 Corinthians 15:24). We emphasize sincere worship (John 4:24), every- member evangelism (Acts 8:4), godly living (Titus 2:11–12), love for each other (John 13:33–34), and helping those in need (James 1:27).
To put it simply, the Daytona Beach church of Christ is seeking to be the same church one reads about in the New Testament.
