GREETINGS and WELCOME. THANK YOU for visiting our website. 

NEW SERMONS POSTED!! See the Resources – Sermons page.

 

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: For those of you out there who profess Christ and say you love Him, do you obey His commands? That is exactly the definition Jesus gave of love for Him in John 14:15, “If you love Me, keep My commandments”. It is easy for us to say we love Jesus. It is not easy to define what that really means when we say it; but Jesus defined it for us. If we love Him, we will do the things He says. We will follow His will. This is the concept of authority. As we live our lives dedicated to Christ, how do we serve Him? How do we know we are acceptably serving Him? We do His will. How do we know His will? There is only one way. Through the word of God. Studying it, meditating on it, praying for wisdom in it. When we contemplate the things we do for Jesus, we must also be sure that He has given us His authority to do them. If not, we are not loving Him, because remember, He said, “If you love me, keep My commandments”. Don’t take this idea lightly. Obviously, Jesus did not. Please read the new article on authority on the Preacher’s Corner page.

If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me.

One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18.

If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me.

Sincerely,

Scott Long
