NOTE: A STRANGE BUG IS CAUSING OUR SCHEDULED LIVE STREAMS TO SHOW INCORRECT START TIMES ON THIS PAGE. IF YOU ACCESS THE STREAMS FROM HERE, UNDERSTAND THAT THE CORRECT TIME IS TWO HOURS AHEAD OF THE TIME SHOWN (E.G., FOR A 7:00PM START, THIS PAGE WILL SHOW 5:00PM). HOWEVER, YOU CAN JOIN US DIRECTLY FROM OUR FACEBOOK PAGE (CLICK HERE) WITHOUT ISSUE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!
AS OF JULY 12, 2020, THE FOLLOWING CHANGES HAVE GONE INTO EFFECT:
Each Sunday morning will consist of two separate worship assemblies:
1. For the first service—8-9am—masks will be required, and social distancing will be more vigorously maintained. Simply put, it will be the equivalent of our regular 10:30-11:30am worship hour. As usual, masks are provided if needed, but it is preferred that everyone have one equipped upon entering the building.
2. The second assembly will be at the regularly scheduled time—9:30-11:30am—and according to the usual arrangement. Masks are recommended and encouraged for those who deem it necessary, but they are not required.
We will also be foregoing our 6pm Sunday evening assembly for the duration of the above arrangement. However, we will still be meeting for mid-week Bible study every Wednesday evening @ 7pm, so please remember this and join us as we strive to “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” (Matt. 6:33) and “
Finally, we will now be live streaming our regularly scheduled Sunday morning Bible study, Sunday morning worship, and Wednesday night Bible study assemblies! This means that those of our number who are unable to attend, and potentially countless others, near and far, can tune in and join us online! You can access these streams on our Facebook page, or from this page.
Again, thank you for your patience, consideration, and cooperation—and we look forward to worshiping and studying with you!
“THESE ARE THEY THAT FOLLOW THE LAMB WHEREVER HE GOES.“
— REVELATION 14:4 —
The Highway church of Christ promotes, teaches, and defends pure, unadulterated New Testament Christianity (i.e., true Christianity—founded directly by Jesus Christ, and grounded strictly in the Word of God for His new and better covenant: the New Testament).
The saints that meet at 704 W Jackson St. in Sullivan, IL are neither “Catholic” nor “Protestant,” but merely “Christians” (Acts 11:26)—Christ-ians, if you will. Likewise, they—along with the churches of Christ as a whole—have no headquarters but heaven (John 18:36), no head but Jesus Christ (Eph. 4:15; 5:23), and no creed or constitution but the New Testament.
We believe that mankind today is obligated to live exclusively under the New Testament of Jesus Christ, per His “new covenant” (Jer. 31:31-34; Lk. 22:20; 2 Cor. 3:6; cf. Heb. 7:22; 9:15-17), because God “set aside” the old covenant—per “the Law and the Prophets” (cf. Matt. 7:12; 22:40; Lk. 16:16; Acts 13:15; Rom. 3:21)—by “nailing it to the cross” (Col. 2:14; cf. Heb. 8:6-13).
Notwithstanding, we passionately believe in the divine inspiration, and thus in the immense profitability (cf. 2 Tim. 3:16,17), of the Old Testament. We believe the apostle Paul when he said, “whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope” (Rom. 15:4; cf. 1 Cor. 10:11). In other words, we believe in the OT just as much as we believe in the NT—but we acknowledge that one cannot believe in the NT without believing that God “nailed [the old] to the cross” (Col. 2:14).
We believe the Bible when it claims that ALL authority—from which man is to derive his worship, his treatment of others, his private life, and even his thoughts—must be found in the written word of God, as delivered to us ultimately by His Son and His Spirit, as They delivered it to the twelve apostles and other inspired men (Matt. 28:18; 18:18; John 14:15-26; 16:4-15; 2 Tim. 3:16,17; 2 Pet. 1:19-21; cp. 1 Cor. 14:37; Heb. 1:1-3; see also Acts 13:49; 15:35,36; 16:32; 19:10; 19:20; 1 Thess. 1:8; 4:15; 2 Thess. 3:1; 1 Pet. 1:25); for God’s authority can be found nowhere else. As God no longer speaks to man directly (Heb. 1:1-3; 1 Cor. 13:8-10; etc.), divine authority can be found in NO other place than the written Word.
Our mission is to preach the Gospel of Christ to those in our local area and beyond (Matt. 28:19,20; Mark 16:15,16; Luke 19:10) and to support others who do the same (cf. Php. 1:3-7).
