The Foundations of ALEXANDRIA CHURCH OF CHRIST

The Alexandria church of Christ was founded in the belief that the Bible is the inspired word of God.  We follow no manmade creeds, nor do we add to or take away from the worship that God has made through his Holy Word.  That means that we assemble on the first day of the week to observe the Lord's supper, and have preaching and teaching, acapella singing, prayer, and a monetary offering.  

 

We hope you will join us as we strive to worship God is spirit and in truth.  Pleasing the Lord is our sole purpose at the Alexandria church of Christ, and we do so with joyful hearts.

 

 

History of This Congregation

ONLY THE BUIDLING CHANGES

 

The exact date when the church of Christ was established here in Alexandria is not clear.  Many believe it was the result of the early restoration movement in America during the late 1800's, when a number of Christians broke away from denominations to worship God, based on "Bible Only" principles, and not man made doctrine.

 

Members of the Alexandria church of Christ built a meeting house in the year 1835.  It was constructed of logs and located just off the public square on the road leading to Brush Creek.  The log building was eventually replaced with a wood framed structure, and location changed to West Main Street in 1851.  In the year 1935, the wood frame building, in the picture below, was destroyed by fire.  An attractive fire resistive stone veneer building current with the time, was constructed on the same site.  Over time several additions and improvements have been made to the church building. In recent years property adjoining this building was purchased and asphalted to use for parking.  Improvements to the building and grounds are even now being considered.  The membership continues to grow and unity prevails.

 

Some of the pioneer preachers of the Alexandria congregation are the following: Tolbert Fanning;  W. T. Tidwell;  F. D. Srygley;  H. Leo Boles;  T. B. Larrimore;  Jesse Sewell; Caleb and Sandy Jones.
