Welcome to Mayfield Church of Christ
The Mayfield church of Christ is located on Hwy 145 in Saltillo, MS. We are an active congregation both in local work and overseas missions. We have many ministries within our congregation to fill the needs of any size or aged family. If you are visiting the site, there is a chance that you do not know much about the church of Christ. We are not ashamed of who we are, Who we seek to serve, or what we believe. Members of the church of Christ seek one simple thing: To please and glorify our Father in heaven while on earth that one day we may be with Him there! We are unlike many of the churches found in the world in many ways. We hope that you’ll investigate what makes us unique, and we think you will like what you find.
Our worship on Sundays includes the five actions that the New Testament authorizes for us to do: singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; praying to God through his Son; preaching from the Word of God; eating the Lord's Supper in memory of Jesus; taking up a voluntary collection from our members to provide for the work of the church.

Often people are hesitant to visit an unfamiliar worship assembly. We want you to feel comfortable and welcome at all of our assemblies. Here is what you can expect when you visit us:
As our honored guest, you will be greeted cordially. Our congregation is a diverse group of all ages, races, and backgrounds. The gospel is for all, and we are all one in Christ. We promise not to embarrass or intrude on you in any way. You can be assured you will be treated with courtesy and kindness.
Our worship is designed to be a period of reverent praise and devotion to God. You will not be confused by many people speaking at the same time. Good order will prevail at every worship service, as one of the brethren leads the congregation (1 Corinthians 14:33, 40).
You will be able to reverently express your devotion to God and study what is taught. We seek to follow the simple and spiritual pattern of collective worship found in the New Testament. We limit our collective activities to those for which we can establish clear Biblical authority (1 Corinthians 4:6).
Communion: On every Sunday we assemble to observe the Lord’s Supper. (1 Corinthians 11::23-26)
Collection for the saints: In our Sunday assembly, our members will give as they have been prospered to meet the needs of the church in teaching and benevolence. Our guests are neither asked nor expected to participate. (1 Corinthians 16:1,2)
Prayer: At every assembly, we will express our thanksgiving to God and ask for His blessings. (1 Timothy 2:8, Acts 2:42; 1 Thessalonians 5:17)
Singing: You will find us joining together in enthusiastic congregational singing. We sing to praise God and exhort one another, nor for entertainment. (Ephesians 5:19)
Preaching and teaching: Accurate and relevant Bible teaching is an important element of our assemblies. We believe that we should have Scriptural authority for everything that we do as Christians and as a church. The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and it is all that we use to determine our practices and beliefs. (Titus 2:1-2; 2 Timothy 4:2-5)
Free written material on Bible subjects is available in our lobby, and you may request free audio recordings of the sermon. We are also happy to arrange personal Bible studies at your convenience.
There is no need to feel uncomfortable about dress requirements. Wear what you have, or what you think is appropriate. We are ordinary people.
Children are always welcome in our assemblies. We have a quiet room available where you can care for your child should they need to leave the assembly. This room has a changing table, rocking chairs as well as an audio feed.
If you need assistance with a personal or spiritual matter, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. The best advice that we can give you is to “Come and see.” (John 1:46). Be our guest for a few weeks – observe, ask questions, get acquainted and prayerfully consider the things that you hear. Please be our guest.
What We Believe
First of all, our mission in life is to be the “light of the world” (Matt 5:14), and that that light will “glorify our Father who is in heaven” (Matt 5:16). We are a people who love God. It is from His hand that every “good and perfect gift” has come (Jam 1:17), with the greatest gift of all being the gift of His Son Jesus, the Christ (2 Cor 9:15, Jn 3:16)! We realize that we can never repay His love and favor towards us, but we seek to show Him our love and devotion the best that we can. Our love for our Father also calls us to a deep respect of Him. The Hebrews’ writer said “let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear” (Heb 12:28). This blend of love and respect leads us to lives full of joy, yet governed by His will, worship that is full of emotion, while conducted in reverence, and a view towards those outside that seeks to reach as many as we can with the truth.
The love and respect that we hold for our Father in Heaven leads us to love and respect His will for our lives. We believe that the Bible is in fact the word of God. As such, it alone is the governing agent of our lives and our worship. Peter said “His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue” (2 Pet 1:3). We need no other message than the Bible; it is all that we need to do what God desires in our lives (2 Tim 3:16-17). We hold God’s word in the highest regard; it is the final authority in all matters. We do not seek to add to, or take away from it (Rev 22:18-19). As such, we have no creed or constitution, we do not rely on others for our spiritual guidance, and our lives and worship are patterned after the model found in the New Testament. This may sound simple, but simple is the way God designed Christianity (2 Cor 11:3)!
Finally, we are a people who are deeply concerned for the lost. Some of Jesus’ final words while on earth were “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, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Mat 28:19-20). The church’s primary mission is to teach the gospel of Christ to a lost world, and we humbly try to do that! The greatest good that we could accomplish while on earth is to help as many as possible come to know Jesus Christ through obedience. Our hope and prayer is that our lives may be God’s instruments of evangelism as we seek to please Him in all things
