Who We Are
TO GLORIFY GOD BY EVANGELIZING THE LOST, EDIFYING THE SAVED, SERVING THE NEEDY, AND LIVING RIGHTEOUSLY.
God commands us to spread the gospel among the world, and that starts with the community for Kensington Woods. KW has efforts abroad but primarily focuses on reaching the Greater Hattiesburg Area.
Over the past couple of years, the Kensington Woods congregation has made an intentional effort to focus on its ability and effectiveness in to spreading the gospel. The elders at KW have led the way with their vision and example in training members on how to conduct bible studies, explaining the value and importance of sharing the gospel with others, and leading the effort in spreading the gospel in South Mississippi and the world. With the additions of our Evangelists, Robert Tipps and Chris Donovant, KW has been energized and encouraged to carry out its 20/20 Vision of being a unified congregation, not only equipped to but is evangelizing South Mississippi.
The church of Christ was purchased by the blood of Christ and established in A.D.33 when 3,000 souls repented from their sins and were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins and received the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2). The church of Christ has no man-made by-laws or creeds. We simply look to God as the creator of the universe and mankind. We constantly look to the Bible for everything we do; therefore, if you asked us what we believe, we would not give you an opinion. We would open a bible with you. Our worship, doctrine, and efforts strive to line up with New Testament scripture and Jesus Christ. We are a small part of a 2,000 year old church that does not bear the name of a denomination; we simply wear the name of Christ.
Kensington Woods church of Christ is the place where CHRIST is BIG and we are small. If you would like to understand more about the Church of Christ, we will be happy to sit down with you in a kind and peaceful bible study.
WE PLACE OUR FAITH IN CHRIST
So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
WE REPENT FROM SINFUL WAYS
Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
WE CONFESS JESUS AS OUR LORD
WE ARE BAPTIZED “INTO CHRIST” TO PUT ON CHRIST
for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
CHRIST CONTINUES TO LIVE IN US AND US FOR HIM
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
CHRIST IS WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT
Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.
