|We want to take a moment to extend a very warm welcome to everyone
who's visiting one of our churches or our church website for the very first time. Whether you're
just having a look, or are searching out for a church to worship, we're delighted to have you here.
We hope this website will give you an understanding of what it's like to be a part of the Mates Creek Association. Also, to give our first time visitors & members a place to come to enjoy and preserve the old time religion of true worship in songs, praying, preaching, through fellowship with the brethren & sisters.
Some of the things that we uphold: We refer our pastors or preachers as "Elders", this is a Biblical word. We believe in the 1611 King James Translation. We don't use instruments in the church, we feel that God has given us a voice to make a joyful noise & praise unto Him. We don't offer Sunday Schools, this is a man made idealogy to teach children what parents should do every day in the privacy of their own homes. We don't require tithing, we feel that God loves a cheerful giver and the brethren & sisters give what they are comfortable with. We also reject the teachings and idealogies that allow women to be pastors or preachers, we uphold the bishop requirements & teachings of the Apostle Paul in his letters to Timothy.
We encourage you to visit and worship with us, if you seek truth and salvation based upon the FREE Sovereign Grace of God, the doctrine based upon the gospel and the works of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, in which He finished at the cross of Calvary.
