“We are not the only Christians; we are Christians only.”
Manchester Christian Church is a part of the the Restoration Movement. This is a movement that calls for people to abandon denominational ties and the things that separate us from worshiping together and find a common ground in the person of Jesus Christ. We use the Bible as an inspired guide from God on the Christian life to inspire us in our love for each other. This is a call to anyone who desires to be a part of the great kingdom of God to come as you are to worship the creator of all things.
How should I dress?
We are a “come as you are” church. If you are a “dress up for church” person, you are welcome here. If you are a “I like to be comfortable” person, you are welcome here. We are just glad to share in a fellowship that is not based on clothes, race, worship style, or anything else that would keep us from worshiping the Lord Almighty.
What about kids?
We are a kid-friendly church that wants to help students of all ages grow in their relationship with Christ. On Sunday during both services, we have a worship time designed just for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade in our “KidStreet” hall studio called “iKidz.” We also offer a similar setting for children ages 2 through pre-k called “Wii Kidz” which is also located in the “KidStreet” hall. During the week we offer programs for all high school, middle school, and elementary school students with curriculum and events specifically designed for their age group.
What is our worship like?
We offer both Traditional and Modern styles of worship services. We do this to enable people to worship God in the way they are most comfortable in expressing their praises to Him.
Our Modern service is not specifically designed to be cutting edge or flashy but instead relevant and inviting. We do this in hopes of creating an environment that is open for true and honest worship of our King where authenticity is at the core of our praises. Modern worship for us consists of using relevant songs of any genre to express the longing of our hearts and souls. Worship songs are completely band-led.
Our Traditional service is made up of the grand old hymns of our faith and are beautifully played using a piano or organ. We feel there is great value in acknowledging the traditions of our faith and we understand the deep meaning and familiarity that these hymns hold in people’s hearts.
Our ultimate goal is to create an atmosphere where all will feel welcomed and encouraged to pour out their hearts before God.
