The body of Christ in Laurel, Delaware is a family of believers knit together in love (Colossians 2:2), striving to serve God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24) and carrying the gospel to the lost (Matthew 28:18).
We are an autonomous body, with Christ only as our head, and elders shepherding the flock of God (Acts 20:28).
We have been entrusted with the Gospel (1 Thessalonians 2:4), and so it is that we speak.
The congregation seeks to uphold the doctrine and practice of the first century church using the only true standard, the bible, as our guide (2 Peter 1:3).
It is our prayer that all would come to a knowledge of the truth and partake in that divine fellowship in the body of Christ, being immersed for the remission of sins, and beginning life anew with Christ as Lord (Acts 2:38, Romans 6:1ff).
Our plea is that we all might be one in Christ (John 17:21) and strive to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace (Ephesians 4:3) and serve the Lord faithfully unto death to receive our crown (Revelation 2:10).
We invite you to attend any of our service times and look forward to welcoming you, and pray that you might find a home here with us at Laurel, and with God in Heaven as his child. (I Corinthians 2:2) “To Know Him, and make Him known”
