Ellettsville Christian Church is an independent, non-denominational fellowship of believers who seek to follow Christ and wear only His name.
We share a common heritage with about 5,000 churches worldwide known as the Christian Churches / Churches of Christ. The principle of this movement is to restore today's church life as dictated by the teachings of the New Testament. Although we exist apart from any external authority or control, we do participate with other churches in many projects and programs that exalt Jesus Christ and spread the Gospel.
The mission of this church was established 2,000 years ago when, during his physical ministry on earth, Jesus Christ laid out the blueprint for his Church. Each week, we spend time in God's word growing and learning more what it means to be disciples and to serve as his body — the Church. Through our study, a primary statement has become the guiding force for our congregation:
Loving God, Loving People Through Connecting, Growing, and Serving
This over-arching statement summarizes the vision God has given us for the church. It is taken directly from two simple yet profound teachings of Jesus Christ:
- Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
- Love your neighbor as yourself.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."Jesus (Matthew 28:18–20)
To be a church that helps people take their next steps toward God.
