Who are We?
Great Questions. The Christians who meet at Decker Prairie are simply Christians. We gather every Sunday to remember the life and death of Christ and reflect on how the Bible should influence our lives. Our only special attribute is that we have been saved by grace through faith and have dedicated our lives to living as Christ would have us to live. We are a diverse group coming from many different backgrounds and vocations. We are a loving group who share the gospel in the community here locally as well as abroad by supporting evangelists in other locations.
Our goal as a group is to help one another get to heaven and spread the good news of Christ.
What to expect when worshiping with us
We desire only to worship God as the 1st century Christians did, (John 4:24) “…in spirit and in
truth.” We therefore worship God in the following ways:
1 - Observing the Lord’s Supper: We partake of unleavened bread and fruit of the vine to
commemorate the Lord’s death and sacrifice until he comes again. As did the New Testament
church, we observe the Lord’s Supper every 1st day of the week.
(Acts. 20:7; Luke 22:7-20; Mark 14:12-25; 1 Cor. 11:23-26).
2 - Singing Songs of Praise to God: We lift our voices (a cappella) to God our Father in songs
of praise and joy; As did the New Testament church, we sing without instrumental
accompaniment. (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16)
3 - Praying to our Heavenly Father: We offer our prayers in humility and thankfulness to
God through Jesus Christ. (1 Thess. 5:17; Acts. 2:42)
4 - Studying the Bible through Preaching/Teaching: We study to know God’s will and
understand what He would have us to do.
(Prov. 9:10; 2 Tim. 2:15; John 5:39; 2 Tim. 3:16-17)
5 - Contributing: We return unto God a portion of that with which he has blessed us. Members
are the only ones expected to give. Visitors may contribute if they wish, but they are not
pressured to do so. As did the New Testament church, we give with a cheerful heart.
(1 Cor. 16:1-2; 2 Cor. 9:6-7)
