Milford Church of Christ exists to make, mature, and mobilize disciples of Jesus Christ.

The Milford Church of Christ:

  • Believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. (Matthew 16:16)
  • Understands that salvation is a gift given through the grace of God and “not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
  • Recognizes that “all Scripture is breathed out by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.” (2nd Timothy 3:16)
  • Practices baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit for the remission of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit.  (Acts 2:38)
  • Observes Sunday as the first day of the week, a day to gather together as a body to receive the Lord’s Supper as a memorial of our Savior’s death. (Acts 20:7; 1st Corinthians 11:24-26)
  • Encourages our members to live a life of faithful service to Christ. (Revelation 2:10)
  • Regards our people as not the only Christians, but Christians only, who seek oneness with all believers in matters essential to the Christian faith. (Galatians 3:26-28)
  • Invites into our fellowship ALL who would desire to receive life, live life, and to give life in Jesus Christ.
