Join us each Sunday at 10 AM & 6 PM for the entire service streamed live. Listen live here. Audio will begin streaming shortly before the service begins.
No Apologies Here
We invite you to visit with us at the Eastern Shore Church of Christ in Daphne, Alabama. We are a growing group of spiritually minded people who make no apologies for the truth. Jesus Christ changes people and frees them from all kinds of sin and bondage. At Eastern Shore we rejoice in that truth because every one of us is a sinner. If you were to poll the congregation I suspect you would find just about every sin imaginable in the background of our family. But we have been changed by Jesus.
Sometimes truth is hard. Sometimes the word of God says things we would rather not hear. But we need a strong moral compass that always points heavenward. You will find that here. Your family will find that here. We preach the truth in love and we make no apologies for that.
In some places, the church has been changed to be more attractive to the world. We understand the thinking and we also want to reach as many as possible. But it is not the job of the church to change for people. It is the job of people to be changed by Jesus Christ and his unalterable truth. The church is composed of changed people. We make no apologies for that.
There is something else we do not apologize for. We don’t apologize for loving people. When you come you will be greeted and treated in a special way. We’ll talk to you, ask about your kids and ask about your work. We are interested in you and we will not let you get lost. People in Daphne, Fairhope and Spanish Fort know that we are a loving, helping congregation. You will never be embarrased but you will feel the love. We make no apologies for that.
You might find that Eastern Shore is not for you. We don’t think so, but you might. At least give us the chance to show you a body of believers that do not apologize for Jesus Christ.
Church services have become too complicated. Rock bands, praise teams, drama teams and such make worship entertaining but at an extreme cost. Those not quite talented enough to perform are left in the seats to enjoy an appealing array of entertainment.
It’s called worship but it sure looks more like entertainment.
For many who attend these services there is a gnawing thought that this really isn’t Biblical worship. Something is just not right.
At Eastern Shore, you will discover the beauty of ancient, simple church. Ours is a worship service built upon the principles and practices of the original Christians. It’s the kind of worship Peter and Paul practiced. It’s the worship ordained and authorized by the Lord through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
No chaos. No concerts. No bands. Everyone participates together singing beautiful acapella harmonies to God. Your voice, your worship is just as valuable as anyone else’.
Come home. Come to a simple church service and leave feeling like you have participated in solemn worship, not like a spectator watching from afar.
Come. Come to the Eastern Shore Church of Christ.
