Church of Christ for Pioneer Valley & Western Mass

cropped-Summit4-Copy.jpg

Our church’s ministry is part of the church of Christ in greater Western Massachusetts. As disciples of Jesus, we believe in holding to the teaching of Jesus Christ (John 8:31-32) as a means of determining truth in a spiritual war between darkness and light. We practice full immersion baptism through water and the Holy Spirit as taught in Acts 2:38, Acts 8, Acts 10, 1Peter 3:18-22 and many other passages. The goal of our discipleship is to fulfill 1John 1:5-10, walking in the light as we confess our sins, and seek forgiveness and fellowship with one another and with God. It is our deep conviction that Jesus is the head of His church and as Paul wrote (Romans 16:16) “the churches of Christ” greet you.

Our ministry in Western Massachusetts, is comprised of very experienced and well-trained brothers and sisters. We have education and backgrounds in the mainline Churches of Christ, the ICOC or the International Churches of Christ, the progressive Churches of Christ, as well as other discipling ministries and campus ministries. With our varied histories, we provide a blend of understanding, compassion, and motivation to fulfill Jesus’ great commission: “go and make disciples of all nations.” Everyone has his or her gifts and abilities, which God gave to help this happen. We are here to encourage one another on to love and good works Hebrews 3:13, 10:25, James 2:24, as we live by faith and grace, Romans 5:1-2. Our ministry covers greater Springfield, Amherst, Northampton, Granby, Holyoke, Chicopee, South Hadley, Belchertown, Longmeadow, East Longmeadow, Hadley, and many others in Western Massachusetts.
