Middletown Christian Church was established in 1837 as a congregation patterned after the church as described in the New Testament.
The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-8) The Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16). While all persons have worth in God's eyes, all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). According to the Bible, the forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to all who trust Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord (John 3:16).
Becoming a Christian involves repenting of sins, confessing faith in Jesus Christ, and being baptized into Him (Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38). The church is the body of Christ and exists on earth to save the lost and to edify the saved and is empowered in this task by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:1-16). One day, Jesus Christ will return to earth for His church and He will reign forever as Lord of Lords and King of Kings (2 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
Our worship is designed to give praise to the Lord through a weekly observance of the Lord's Supper. The preaching of God's Word is designed to be practical and instructional as well as motivating.
A strong emphasis is placed upon the Bible as the final authority in all matters. Our teaching is Bible-based. We prefer to us Bible names for Bible things.
