About Us

It may be, that you thought about visiting Candlelight at one time or another, but you dreaded the discomfort of visiting a place where you may not know anyone, and not knowing what to expect, you just didn’t want to put yourself through that.

Well, we want you to know that we completely understand, so we would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and let you know what to expect when you visit us.

We want you to feel right at home, not out of place, because you will be our honored guest. You will be greeted with kindness and courtesy. Our assembly is not a display of emotion or excitement, but a simple and devout period of worship. It is patterned exactly after the worship of the early New Testament church. You will hear scriptures being read, prayers lead, and the truth of God’s word preached by the men of the Church. You may even hear some things that you have heard before, only in a different light, but that’s a normal thing when it comes to hearing God’s word. We are compelled by the command of Jesus Christ to preach all the Gospel, (Ephesians 6:10-11). We preach this Gospel in truth and love, trusting that everyone present will evaluate it in the light of his or her personal life and responsibility. We believe you will be impressed by a presentation of God's plan and simple Bible teaching. There will be congregational singing and you are welcome to join in and sing with us as we worship, making a joyful noise in our hearts to the Lord, (Ephesians 5:19) using the strings of the heart as our only musical instrument.

There will be a Christ centered sermon, designed to teach and uplift all who are present. You are urged to take notes and check what you hear against what the Bible says. At the close of the sermon, those who wish to become Christians are invited to make this known by coming to the front of the assembly immediately following the sermon during the singing of the invitation hymn. Early in the worship the Lord's Supper or Communion will be served by the men of the congregation. The New Testament teaches that Christians (members of the Lord's church) are to do this on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7). You will not be asked or expected to do so. Following the Lord’s Supper, a contribution will be taken up from the members. In 1 Corinthians 16:2 the church is commanded to do this on the first day of the week. As our guest you are not asked or expected to give. Do not feel embarrassed to pass the contribution plate to the person next to you or to the men serving.

It is our hope that what you have read here has helped you come to know us a little better and we hope to meet you in person very soon. We would like to have you at our next assembly for worship and study. Our goal is to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ according to the words of the New Testament. If you disagree with anything that we say or do, please feel free to discuss it with one of us after the worship service. Come and see for yourself how the early church worshipped 2000 years ago.
