Come Share the Journey!

Our mission as the church of Christ at Cottondale, in obedience to the Word of God, is to enlist, encourage, and equip as many people as possible in becoming dedicated followers of Jesus. We understand this lifelong journey includes essential elements such as…

Commitment to Worship
Christ’s followers will hear and obey what God says. In worship, we hear a message from God’s word, lift our voices and hearts to God in song, offer prayers, partake in the Lord’s Supper, give as we have been prospered and we grow in knowledge of His will for our lives. Through worship, we refocus our lives on God. All who love God and follow Jesus commit to – and enjoy the privilege of – worshiping regularly.

Commitment to our Community
Christ’s followers are to be known by their love for each other. Following Jesus is an individual decision, but the journey is made in the company of other followers. Christ offers a new life, a connected life, and in His church all are welcome through humble obedience.

Commitment to Serve
Christ’s followers are to embrace a life of service. Love for God is demonstrated by showing love to other people, not just in words but in deeds of mercy. Following Jesus will lead us to others we can help.
