We start with the bible...

According to the Bible, God created the world and God created people. All people are made in God’s image. Sin came into the world and damaged the relationship between people and other people, people and the world, and people and God. Thanks be to God that He did not stop loving us or the world. 

The Bible is the story of God’s loving desire to heal his relationship with people and with creation. The main point of the Bible is Jesus. Jesus is the ultimate healer, erasing the divide between humans and creation. Jesus finished his work on earth, but the work of healing is ongoing. The world is still full of brokenness. We look forward to the return of Jesus when this brokenness will be fully and permanently fixed. 

But now, we as Christians seek to help people fix broken relationships with each other, the world we live in, and with God. At Senatobia Church of Christ, we trust in the story of God and recognize that we are somewhere between the beginning and ending of that story; between Genesis and Revelation. Our goal is to find our place in God’s grand story. 

If you are interested in finding your place in God’s story, we, at Senatobia, would love to be able to find it with you!

The "love first" creed

don mClaughlin (Used by permission)

We believe that God is love.

We believe that God so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that the world may be saved through him.

We believe that God loved us when we were powerless, ungodly sinners and enemies.

We believe that the first and greatest command is to love God with all that we are.

We believe that with the first and greatest command, we are to love our neighbors as ourselves.

We believe that we must love our enemies, the ungrateful, and the wicked.

We believe that if we claim to love God but do not love others, we are liars.

We believe that when we see our brothers and sisters in need, we must help them with our material possessions, or the love of God is not in us.

"If love is not first, both in order and value, then we have it wrong."
