The Sun Valley Blvd. church of Christ is a group of Christians meeting in the suburb of Waco, called Hewitt which is located just south of Loop 340 exiting West at Sun Valley Blvd. off of I-35 in Central Texas. The congregation’s roots were in Waco as the old 25th St. congregation which began to meet in the present meeting house after its was built in 1989.
We have no denominational name or headquarters. We are not members of any man-made denominational organization, conference, synod, or association. We are simply Christians trying to serve God in the manner prescribed in the New Testament. We are not perfect and infallible, but we know that God is, and that we must strive to serve Him in order to have salvation. We are concerned about having scriptural authority for the things we do.
We have Bible classes for all ages and our teachers work hard to present interesting material from God’s word, so that we may grow spiritually.
The Sun Valley Blvd. congregation is concerned with sharing the gospel with others. We stand ready to assist in helping others with their Bible study and spiritual growth. The Sun Valley church of Christ has always tried to be a beacon of truth for the Word of God in evangelism in Central Texas.
This congregation does not support any man-made institutions that have become so much a part of many churches of Christ. We are not involved in sports, parties, church socials, or any other activities for which we cannot find scriptural authority. We follow the biblical pattern of the church work being that of preaching the gospel, edifying the saints, and providing benevolence for saints. We do believe that, as individuals, we are to “do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians 6:10).
Members of the Sun Valley church of Christ are deeply concerned about each other. This is manifested often as members “look after each other” in times of illness, death, or other problems. The members also spend time together in homes and in other activities that are initiated by individual members and are not a part of the work of the church.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19)
