Who Are We?
Members of Churches of Christ are a people of restoration spirit -- wanting to restore in our time the original New Testament church. In every phase of our worship, teaching, and conduct we stress that our instruction must come from the Bible. Any rules, creeds or principles invented by man have no place in the Church of Christ.
Worldwide there are some 20,000 congregations of Churches of Christ with a total of 2.5 to 3 million individual members. There are Churches of Christ in every state and in 109 other countries.
Churches of Christ have none of the trappings of modern-day organizational bureaucracy. There are no governing boards -- neither district, regional, national, or international. Each congregation is autonomous (self-ruled). Each congregation is governed locally by a plurality of elders. These men must meet the specific qualifications of the office given in I Timothy 3.
What is Our Worship Like?
Worship in Churches of Christ centers around five items, the same as in the first-century Church. These items are: singing, praying, preaching, giving, and partaking of the Lord's Supper. We believe that in these five areas of worship the New Testament pattern is very important. Our worship must contain the following three elements:
It must be directed to the right object . . . God.
It must be prompted by the right spirit (John 4:24).
It must be according to truth.
One of the things people most frequently notice about the Churches of Christ is that we sing without the use of mechanical instruments of music -- a cappella singing is the only music used in our worship. Here again this practice is patterned after the first-century Church (Eph 5:19).
Another wonderful thing about the Lassen Street Church of Christ is our diversity of ages and race. Our Church includes seniors and little ones as well as a wonderful mix of all races. It is with this in mind that a true "Church family" atmosphere can exist. Everyone is a working member of our "Church family" at the Lassen Street Church of Christ.
The Lassen Street Church of Christ is a well-established congregation, founded in Vallejo in 1942. The Church is shepherded by two Elders and served by six Deacons.
