Welcome. The Woodstock Church of Christ is one of several autonomous congregations of the Body of Christ striving to practice the New Testament Christianity in the Metro-Atlanta area. We strive to do only those things the Word of God authorizes. We seek to “speak where the Bible speaks” and to “remain silent where the Bible is silent,” in our worship and doctrine.
We strive to be a very warm and friendly congregation of God’s people. Why not come and enjoy some peace in this world that passes all understanding? Hear the good news, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a well of water springing forth into life everlasting. Come worship with us. View our worship schedule.
We all have opinions. Some of which may be based on some subjectively developed or adopted belief. What is interesting is that most people do not realize this, and present their opinions as facts based on beliefs they simply hear stated and perceive to be factual! Believing their opinions to be supported factually, all other thinking is then rejected, whether based on fact/evidence or not! Because of such beliefs, they will often force their opinions, which is like pushing the magnetized needle of a compass around to where one wants “True North” to be. This is very often demonstrated in religious matters. Webster defines an opinion as: ”A belief not based on absolute certainty or positive knowledge but on what seems true, valid, or probable to one’s own mind.” An opinion in religion is a belief/position people hold that is not sustained by book, chapter and verse. There are many, in religious matters, who force their opinions because of an improper attitude toward the Scriptures. They have formed opinions such as “one church is as good as another”, “instrumental music is acceptable in worship,” or “congregations may not pool their resources or collect funds from other congregations to do a work common to them all or they will “lose their autonomy.” These people do not misinterpret the scriptures – they usually
admit what the Bible teaches, they simply do not feel that they are limited by the scriptures or that the scriptures allow another opinion– and therefore form and force an opinion which creates a factious body of people. Forced opinions (I must have my way at all costs) constitute the largest barrier to unity in the Lord’s church. May it ever be that we as a local congregation of God’s people continue to teach and practice that which can be believed with absolute certainty and positive knowledge because it can be found in book, chapter and verse. We cannot force
opinions – we must forcibly stand for “what is written.”
