BLENDVILLE CHRISTIAN CHURCH
What We Believe
We at Blendville Christian Church believe in one God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 5:16, 45; 6:1, 4, 8, 9; James 1:17 / John 1:1; 14:9 / Genesis 1:2; John 4:24; 14:16-20; 2 Peter 1:21)
Blendville Christian Church believes in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible.
(Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:3)
Blendville Christian Church believes in Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, our one and only Savior,
(John 1:14; 1 John 4:9 / John 3:16; 2 Peter 3:18)
Who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,(Matthew 21:11; John 19:19 / John 1:14; Romans 5:15-17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1 / Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-38)
Who suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilate,(Luke 23:1-46)
Who died and was buried, and who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day,
(Luke 23:44 - 24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8)
Who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father,
(Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1-9; Colossians 3:1)
and Who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead.(Matthew 24:36-42; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:10-11; 10:39-42; 1 Peter 4:5)
Blendville Christian Church believes in the Holy Spirit, Who is an active and operative part of the triune God,
(John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27)and Who indwells every Christian.(1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 2 Timothy 1:14)
At death, the Christian's spirit departs to be with Jesus Christ. At the return of our Lord, our bodies will be raised in the likeness of His resurrected body and we will live forver in His divine presence. (Luke 16:19-31; 1Thes. 4:13-18; 1Cor. 15:1-58)
Blendville Christian Church believes in the Bible and God's Holy Word, Scripture. I believe God inspired the autographs (original writings) of the Scripture and those autographs were consequently without error.(Mark 12:36; John 14:26; 16:12-15; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
Blendville Christian Church accepts the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.(Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12)
Blendville Christian Church believes the Bible teaches that man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.(Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23)
Blendville Christian Church believes the Bible teaches that salvation and the forgiveness of sins is achieved only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.(Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7)
Blendville Christian Church believes the Bible teaches that one receives God's grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ, and being immersed into Christ, but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself for the assurance of salvation.(Romans 5:1-2 / Luke 24:45-47; Acts 3:19; 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9 / Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9; Philippians 2:11; 1 John 4:15 / Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21)
Blendville Christian Church believes in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere.(Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47)
Blendville Christian Church believes the Bible teaches that the Elders are to exercise authority over the local congregation.(Acts 20:28; Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4)
The Church is the "Body of Christ" on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit. It exists to evangelize the lost and edify the saved. (Ephesians 4:1-16)
Jesus Christ will one day return to earth personally, bodily and visibly. (Philippians 2:5-8; Luke 1:26-35; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1Peter 2:21-24; 1Cor 15:3-5; Acts 1:9-11; Eph. 1:18-23; 1Thes. 4:15-16; John 14:1-6)
Here at Blendville Christian Church, we strive to provide Christians with a place where they can:
- ) Develop relationships with each other
- ) Grow in their walk with the Lord, and

Who We Are
Blendville Christian Church is a Christian Church in Jopin Missouri - Our message is that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. He alone is savior and Lord.
Blendville Christian Church is a Bible church-We accept both the Old and New Testaments as the inspired Word of God. Christian faith demands the best our minds can give, so we are a studying church, seeking to apply Biblical truth intelligently.
Because of that, we try to imitate New Testament precedents. That is why our communion is every Lord's Day, our leaders are called elders and deacons, our preaching is about Christ, and our prayers are in Jesus' name. Even our name is rooted in the earliest days of the church, when the disciples were first called "Christians." (Acts 11:26)
Blendville Christian Church is a worshipping church- Commitment to weekly celebrative worship of God is a privilege of the Christian life.
Blendville Christian Church is a caring church - Our members gather regularly in small groups for Bible study, fellowship and Bible application. We have ongoing Wednesday adult groups. Come and join us!
Blendville Christian Church is a serving church - Because we believe that every Christian is gifted of God for some kind of ministry, we encourage our members to find an area of service. Our church consists of many "ministers," who faithfully serve the church and our community each week through a variety of ministries.
Blendville Christian Church is a growing church - We want to grow becuase we are under Christ's commission to disciple the world.
