Weekly Thought

  "CROSSING PATHS" 

From time to time in our journey through life we may cross paths with someone who later becomes somewhat famous because of his or her accomplishments. 

Like many of us, I have seen several of our presidents in person; for example, when I was working in downtown Los Angeles, I once saw Lyndon B. Johnson as he motorcaded through the city. 

What I did not know was that long before he became a national figure my Dad had escorted Johnson to a Democrat campaign rally in our hometown in Texas when he was running for the U. S. Senate. 

The unusual part of this is that my Dad was one of the very few Republicans in the county at that time. 

Then there was that Sunday when I attended a sermon given by Guy N. Woods, the preacher who had become well-known in the church due to his strong, stirring, and spell-binding delivery. 

But what I did not know was that back in the 1930's, before Woods was widely known, my Granddad helped him advertise a gospel meeting at the church in Wellington, Texas. 

My Granddad attached two loudspeakers to the roof of Woods' Model A Ford and wired them to the battery and to a microphone so he could drive around town and invite the populace to the meeting. 

And then there was the time my Mom did some secretarial work for Batsell Barrett Baxter before he became prominent throughout our brotherhood as a minister and an author. 

In a somewhat similar vein, I wonder how many of the people who encountered Jesus Christ during His life here on earth truly understood whom they had met. 

Did the teachers in the temple who were astonished at His knowledge when He was twelve years old have any idea they were talking to the Son of God? (Luke 2:46 and 47) Probably not. 

Did King Herod Antipas know that the Man who refused to speak to him was indeed his King? (Luke 23:8 through 11) Probably not. 

Or when Pontius Pilate asked Jesus “What is truth?”, did he realize that the Prisoner he was about to condemn embodied the whole Truth for all mankind? (John 18:37 and 38) Probably not.

"CRUZ DE CAMINOS"

De vez en cuando en nuestro viaje por la vida podemos cruzarnos con alguien que más tarde se vuelve algo famoso debido a sus logros.

Al igual que muchos de nosotros, he visto a varios de nuestros presidentes en persona; por ejemplo, cuando trabajaba en el centro de Los Angeles, una vez vi a Lyndon B. Johnson mientras navegaba por la ciudad.

Lo que no sabía fue que mucho antes de que se convirtiera en una figura nacional mi padre había escoltado a Johnson a un mitin de campaña demócrata en nuestra ciudad natal en Texas cuando se postulaba para el Senado de los Estados Unidos.

La parte inusual de esto es que mi papá era uno de los pocos republicanos en el condado en ese momento.

Luego estaba el domingo cuando asistí a un sermón dado por Guy N. Woods, el predicador que se había hecho bien conocido en la iglesia debido a su entrega fuerte, conmovedora y fascinante.

Pero lo que no sabía era que en la década de 1930, antes de que Woods fuera ampliamente conocido, mi abuelo le ayudó a anunciar una reunión del Evangelio en la iglesia en Wellington, Texas.

Mi abuelo adjuntó dos altavoces al techo del Ford Modelo A Ford de Woods y los conectó a la batería y a un micrófono para que pudiera conducir por la ciudad e invitar a la población a la reunión.

Y luego llegó el momento en que mi mamá hizo un trabajo de secretariado para Batsell Barrett Baxter antes de que se hiciera prominente en toda nuestra hermandad como ministro y autor.

En una línea algo similar, me pregunto cuántas de las personas que se encontraron con Jesucristo durante Su vida aquí en la tierra realmente entendieron a quién habían conocido.

¿Tenían alguna idea de que estaban hablando con el Hijo de Dios los maestros que estaban asombrados de Su conocimiento cuando tenía doce años? (Lucas 2:46 y 47) Probablemente no.

¿Sabía el rey Herodes Antipas que el hombre que se negó a hablar con él era de hecho su rey? (Lucas 23:8 a 11) Probablemente no.

O cuando Poncio Pilato le preguntó a Jesús "¿Qué es la verdad?", ¿se dio cuenta de que el Prisionero que estaba a punto de condenar encarnaba toda la Verdad para toda la humanidad? (Juan 18:37 y 38) Probablemente no.

  • Our Mission

    The Yucaipa church of Christ exists to glorify God, equip all Christians in their walk of faith, and win lost souls to Christ. We believe in the peace, love, and joy that God wants you to have.

    We invite you to come and worship the Lord in spirit and in truth. It is our prayer that you will want to visit us in person as we worship our Lord Jesus Christ and God the Father together.


    We are Christians who are committed to serving our Lord and Master. As believers our intent is to continue Jesus' mission. We know that Christ came to seek and save the lost. We further understand that all men are sinners. Without God's grace, all men would be lost and without hope. Our purpose is to spread the good news of Jesus to others that they too might enjoy God's saving grace through His word.

    Jesus summarized our mission in Matthew 28:18 through 20: “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, 'All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.' Amen.”

     

  • Core Beliefs

    This Church Is To Foster The Worship Of GodWorship in churches of Christ centers in five items, the same as in the first-century church. We believe the pattern is important. Jesus said, "God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth" (John 4:24). From this statement we learn three things:

    1) Our worship must be directed to the right object ... God;

    2) It must be prompted by the right spirit;

    3) It must be according to truth.

    To worship God according to truth is to worship him according to his Word, because his Word is truth (John 17:17). Therefore, we must not exclude any item found in his Word, and we must not include any item not found in his Word.

    In matters of religion we are to walk by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7). Since faith comes by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17), anything not authorized by the Bible cannot be done by faith ... and whatever is not of faith is sin (Romans 14:23).

    The five items of worship observed by the first-century church were singing, praying, preaching, giving, and eating the Lord's Supper.

    We Believe The Bible Is The Word Of GodWe are committed to the continual study of God’s Word, the Bible, to see how we can most closely give God the personal and collective worship He desires. (2 Timothy 3:16:17)

  • I'm New Tell Me More

    The Yucaipa church of Christ is excited about the future. Our goal is to develop dynamic group activities that serve to bring glory and honor to God. Everyone is important to God and His church. We want to help every member in our group activities to reach his or her fullest potential in life. Sometimes glorifying God will look like service involvement. At other times, it may simply be enjoying the mutual bond we share as believers in Christ through fellowship.

    Come and join us this week for Bible study and worship. We look forward to becoming your friend and having you as a member of our congregation. We also invite you to call or email our office to speak with one of our ministers or teachers.

     

  • What We Teach

    Baptism Is Essential For SalvationPerhaps you are wondering, "How does one become a member of the church of Christ?" What are the terms of membership?

    Churches of Christ do not speak of membership in terms of some formula which must be followed for approved acceptance into the church. The New Testament gives certain steps which were taken by people in that day to become Christians. When a person became a Christian he automatically was a member of the church.

    The same is true of churches of Christ today. There is no separate set of rules or ceremonies which one must follow to be inducted into the church. When one becomes a Christian he, at the same time, becomes a member of the church. No further steps are required to qualify for church membership.

    On the first day of the church's existence those who repented and were baptized were saved (Acts 2:38). And from that day forward all those who were saved were added to the church (Acts 2:47). According to this verse (Acts 2:47) it was God who did the adding. Therefore, in seeking to follow this pattern, we neither vote people into the church nor force them through a required series of studies. We have no right to demand anything beyond their obedient submission to the Savior.

    The conditions of pardon which are taught in the New Testament are:

    1) One must hear the gospel, for "faith comes by hearing the word of God" (Romans 10:17).
    2) One must believe, for "without faith it is impossible to please God" (Hebrews 11:6).
    3) One must repent of past sins, for God "commands all men, every- where to repent" (Acts 17:30).
    4) One must confess Jesus as Lord, for he said, "He that confesses me before men, him will I also confess before my father who is in heaven" (Matthew 10:32).
    5) And one must be baptized for the remission of sins, for Peter said, "Repent, and be baptized every- one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins ..." (Acts 2:38).
