What we're about

Do you have an interest in becoming better acquainted with the Bible? Let's read it together and share in the discovery! As we think together through the scriptures our goal will be to discover the original intent of the inspired writers. We will not be interested in what the scriptures mean to me in 2020, but what they meant when they were first written. For what they meant at that time is what they still mean today! The very nature of this approach will make the study completely undenominational.

• Are you ready to start a real Bible study?

• Would you like to know how the whole book fits together?

• Would you like to read the Bible with more confidence?

• Do you wish the Bible was more useful in your daily life?

If you’re interested in such a meetup, then please visit us. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to contact us. We look forward to meeting you.

West Philly church of Christ - An Invitation to Worship

Online event

***UPDATE*** Due to concerns about coronavirus, we are transitioning our weekly studies to an online format. You can join the studies at regular posted hours by using the following zoom link. Stay healthy and stay in the Word. https://zoom.us/j/9365359679 This is a meetup with a difference -- to worship God and to be attentive to his word. When you visit our Sunday assembly here is what you should expect: 1. Since the Scriptures are our only rule of faith and practice (cf., 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Acts 17:11), expect us to conduct our congregational meetings in accordance to what we read in the Bible, specifically the New Testament writings which are the only infallible source anyone has of the teaching of Jesus. We endeavor to worship God as he instructed the early Christians to worship. We avoid things not authorized in Scripture and things that could distract from the spiritual purpose of our assemblies. 2. Prayer to God in the name of Jesus Christ (1 Timothy 2:1; Philippians 4:6) 3. Singing praises to God that teach and encourage each member to grow in their faith and their faithfulness(Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16) 4. Teaching from the Bible that convicts us, challenges us, and helps us to grow into the image of Christ (Acts 2:42; 2 Timothy 4:1-5) 5. The Lord’s Supper (Sundays). This weekly memorial is both a reminder and public proclamation of the death of Jesus Christ (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29). Because His sacrificial death paid the penalty for our sins, we can be forgiven and have peace with God. 6. Voluntarily giving by the members each Sunday to help needy brethren and promote the spread of the Gospel (1 Corinthians 16:1-2; Philippians 4:14-16). PLEASE NOTE: Visitors are not expected to participate in this giving. We do not pass a basket or otherwise solicit funds from our visitors through donations, fundraisers, love-offerings for the speaker, etc. If you have any questions about what we do (or don’t do), please email us: [masked]

Reading and Thinking Through the 1st and 2nd Kings

Online event

***UPDATE*** Due to concerns about coronavirus, we are transitioning our weekly studies to an online format. You can join the studies at regular posted hours by using the following zoom link. Stay health and stay in the Word. https://zoom.us/j/9365359679 After the death of David, the kingdom was given to Solomon, his son. Solomon began well but ended badly. He turned his heart away from serving the true God. Upon his death, the kingdom was divided. Both kingdoms existed, for the most part, in rebellion against Yahweh. The southern, however, had a few righteous kings who were determined to serve the LORD in truth. Through their power as monarchs, they could force the people to act right. Yet, they had no success in changing the hearts of the people and so their reforms were always short-lived. Eventually, both nations were taken into captivity.
