Our Core Beliefs

We are a body of believers in Jesus Christ, meeting on the South Fork of Eastern Long Island. We are a part of the Restoration Movement tradition and as a result try to mimic the practices of the church of the first century AD. Each Sunday we sing acapella music and participiate in communion together. 

  • We recognize the Bible as the inspired word of God and the single source for direction and truth for the Church and the Christian life. (2 Timothy 3:16 & Proverbs 30:5)
  • We acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God; that He died for our sins and resurrected from the dead. (John 1:1-14; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8) 
  • We believe that there is one true God, the creator of the universe, who externally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; John 1:1, 14; John 14:26; 1 Peter 1:2)
  • We believe that salvation is by the grace of God and through faith in Jesus Christ's death on the cross. (Ephesians 2:8, 9; Romans 5:8-11)
  • We practice that those wishing to identify themselves as followers of Christ would in obediance do two things inwardly (believe in Jesus; repent of sins) and do two things outwardly (confess that Jesus is Lord; be baptized). (Mark 16:16; Corinthians 11:23-26)
  • We invite into our fellowship all who would commit themselves to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and regard its people not as  the only Christians, but as Christains only, seeking oneness with all believers in matters essential to the Christain faith. 

Each Sunday here at East End Church of Christ we participate in communion together. Communion is the time set aside to reflect on Christ's death., burial, and resurection and we welcome all Christ followers to join us in remembering His sacrifice. Please take this time for personal reflection and partake at your own readiness. 

Matthew 26-29: While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body." Then he took a cup and when he had given thanks he gave it to them saying, " Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom."
