Northside Church of Christ, Temple Tx.
About Us

Introduction to the Northside Family


Many people hesitate to visit a church because they do not know what to expect when they go. We hope this brief explanation will help you to know what to expect when you are visiting at Northside.

What Will be taught...

We accept no religious authority but the divine authority of the Bible. We believe II Tim. 3:16-17-"16All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We have no sectarian organization, no denominational name, and no human doctrines and creeds. We are simply Christians and our purpose is to follow Christ by following His teachings given through the apostles and authors in the New Testament. Therefore, the preaching and teaching you hear will be from the Bible.

What to Expect in Worship...

Our worship is simple, devout, and is presented in such a way as to draw each worshipper closer to God and to provide enduring spiritual strength.

It is our purpose to be governed in everything we do by the Bible alone. For this reason, our worship consists only of those things that the New Testament reveals were performed in the worship of the early church. Each Sunday we Sing songs of praise to God (Colossians 3:16), speak to our Heavenly Father as we Pray (Acts 2:42), give of our means to support the work of the church (I Corinthians 16:2), Partake of the Lord's Supper in memory of Christ's death on the cross (I Corinthains 11:23-29), and teach and preach the word of God (2 Timothy 2:15).

Our purpose in worship is to maintain the attitude Christ commanded when He said, "God is a Spirit; and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth." (John 4:24).

The Singing...

Our singing, which many visitors find the most interesting and inspiring part of our worship, deserves a special word. Since the New Testament instructs Christians to sing (Ephesians 5:19), we encourage everyone in the assembly to participate in the song service. Our singing is acapella. Our visitors are often amazed at how beautiful and spiritually stirring it is when everyone lifts their voice in praise to God.

Bible Classes...

In addition to worship services on Sunday , dedicated Christians teach Bible classes for all ages each Sunday morning and Wednesday evening. In each Bible class only the Bible and Bible-centered materials will be used. We are convinced that the whole family can be greatly benefited by studying God's word.

You are invited...

We extend to you our most cordial invitation to meet with us and learn with us. We promise you a friendly welcome. We Sincerely believe assembling with us will benefit you.
