about
Hartford Christian Church is affiliated with the Independent Christian Churches/Churches of Christ. We embrace that there will be differing theological views among our leadership and hold tightly to the principle, “In essentials, unity; in opinions, liberty; in all things love.” We adhere to the following belief system:
 
quillThe Bible
 
We believe that the Bible is the divinely preserved and inspired Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16.) Therefore, we will use the Bible as the guide for our counseling, writing, training, worship and speaking ministries.

user God The Father, The Son & The Holy Spirit
 
We believe God is eternally and simultaneously both one and three: Father, Son, and Spirit. (John 17:11; 1 Corinthians 3:16)
 
We believe that Jesus Christ was, in the flesh, both God and man…and that he died for our sins…and that he arose from the dead. (John 1:1-14; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8)
 
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the indwelling Presence of God in the believer. He equips and empowers us for personal growth and service in the church and in the world.(John 14:26; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
1309046632732_1659
eye Sin & Salvation
 
We believe that every person has a worth as a creation of God, but all have sinned and fallen short of God’s perfection, making union with God by human effort impossible. (Romans 3:23)
 
We believe that forgiveness of sin and the promise of eternal life are available to all people who will accept the free gift of God’s grace through Jesus Christ. (John 3:16-17)
 
We believe that those trusting Christ should repent of their sins, confess their faith, and be baptized into the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38; Matthew 28:19-20)
 
We believe that the church is the community of God and the body of Christ on earth and exists to reach those who are far from Christ and to disciple believers. (Matthew 28:19-20) We believe that Christ’s church is the only hope for mankind (Matt. 16:18)
 
We believe that leadership is the hope of the church (2 Tim. 2:2)
 
We believe that Jesus Christ will one day return, as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, to take the church to heaven for eternity. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18)

Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins.

 

Mission Outreach

Hartford Christian Church is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.  Our missions team – the Go Ye Council – meets monthly to plan ways to impact our local community and as well as around the world.

 

Music & Drama

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
 
 
The “Out to Lunch Bunch”
 
The first Tuesday of every month the “Out to Lunch Bunch” picks a restaurant in our community to visit for a great time of food and fellowship!  A sign-up sheet is located across from the church office.  Everyone is welcome!
Media & Technology Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of this church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. You can connect with us through our church podcast or our YouTube channel. We also maintain an active Facebook feed for additional church communication.   Work Groups We have several mens and womens work groups that take on various service projects in our church and around the community.  Projects include decorating the church, setting up tables for community dinners, preparing meals for families who have lost loved ones, as well as clean up and yard work for those in need.   Prayer Warriors Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to seeking God’s guidance. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers from our Prayer Warriors team pray for the ministers, elders, deacons, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.
 
 
Core Groups
 
On Sunday Nights our adults meet together in groups to study the Core 52 verses in the Bible. Video teaching, small group discussion, prayer, and lots of laughter make this a great way to get plugged in with the church!

How Do I Meet People?

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church.
Group Studies
Often, smaller groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, our church has several different groups that meet at the church.  We offer a traditional Sunday School hour at 9:30AM every Sunday.  In addition, there are Ladies and Mens Bible Studies that occur throughout the year.. If you’d like to find out what groups are available, email scott@hartfordchristian.com
Children’s Ministry
Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. The children’s ministry of our church is recognized for their meaningful interaction with kids.  For more information, email elaine@hartfordchristian.com
Student Ministry
Life can get complicated as teens cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The Student Ministry of our church provides a welcoming atmosphere for Middle School and High School students.  For more information, email scott@hartfordchristian.com
Women’s Group
Women’s groups give the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups, located in several locations throughout our community, are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.
Over 50’s
Once you get past fifty, the fun has just begun. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, the over-50 group of Hartford Christian provides refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction. A mentoring ministry gives older believers a chance to meet with and help younger believers grow in Christ.
