Who We Are
The church in Charlotte isn’t our name – it’s our description. As such, it’s an inclusive title, not an exclusive one. We gather together simply as believers of the Lord in this city, and we receive as our brothers and sisters all who believe in Jesus Christ. Likewise, we warmly welcome guests and visitors who are not Christians.
The church in Charlotte began to meet when there arose a feeling within many members of the Body of Christ to build up the testimony of Jesus here. As a result of this feeling, some believers began moving to Charlotte from local churches in different cities to strengthen the small group of believers already meeting there in the oneness of the Body of Christ. During the next two years, families moved from a number of cities in various states, including California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Texas, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. This has been a real blending of the churches.
The Lords Day morning meeting in Charlotte includes a time of singing
and mutual enjoyment in speaking the Word of God, and there are also
classes for the teaching and care of the children. We have the Lords
table weekly (1 Corinthians 10:21), which is a rich time of
fellowship. On Tuesday, we meet for prayer. There are also numerous
home meetings for all the believers. The young people and college
students have regular weekly gatherings.
