Thank you for taking a moment of your busy time to browse our website here at
Church of Israel. We are most happy to greet you in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ
and welcome you to a bit of our history. We are an autonomous Protestant Church
Body rooted and grounded in Southwest Missouri since 1941. The Church is focused
on the historic Christian and Apostolic faith and doctrine of first century Christianity.
The goal is to build a Church on Sola Scriptura, and the Bible of record for this
Congregation is The Authorized King James Version. The Church honors Jesus
Christ as Head of the Church and all the essential doctrinal points encompassed in the
historic Apostles and Nicene Creed.
We use a modified version of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer for our worship
service, with a traditional Bible sermon preached directly from the Bible to follow. Our
services employ the historic hymns of the Christian faith and we are committed to
singing Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs of the faith. In many ways the Church here
is what you would expect to find in most of America in the year 1950.
A very radical transformation of the American Culture has been under way for the
past seventy-five years. During this same time frame the Church here in Missouri has
remained unchanged from the moral boundaries set in Scripture. We embrace a biblical
moral standard and love and advance what Jesus Christ and the Bible teaches and we
oppose all moral behavior that mitigates against Sola Scriptura.
We approach the path to salvation that embraces the Depravity of Man,
Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, and the Divine
Preservation of the saints. Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus
Christ alone, for the glory of God alone. We hold worship services on the historic
Biblical Sabbath of the Seventh Day and honor all the biblical Holy Days including
Passover & Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and the
Feast of Tabernacles. Our attendance is by invitation only. If you wish to open up
discussion for a visit we encourage you to call our offices at 417-432-3119.
