The following is a timely sermon by Paul Nichols on why we must use one cup and one loaf in the observance of the Lord’s Supper.
“Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth” – Paul Nichols
“The Rose Looks Fair, But Fairer We It Deem”
O how much more doth beauty beauteous seem,
By that sweet ornament which truth doth give!
The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem
For that sweet odour which doth in it live. (Shakespeare Sonnet 54)
These roses remind us of the beauty of truth. Indeed, true worship is like a rose with inward fragrance and a lovely outward design. The external beauty of truthful worship with a capela singing, one cup and one loaf is combined with the inward fragrance of spiritual worship. From our souls emanate the fragrance of respect, love, gratitude and submission. What can be more beautiful than a rose? Spiritually, what can be more beautiful than worshiping in spirit and in truth? John 4:23,24
Come and join us as we praise from the heart our Creator and Redeemer!
History of the Wynnewood Church
From the commencement of the church of Christ in Jerusalem shortly after our Lord’s resurrection, other congregations identical to it in faith and practice began to be established throughout Israel and throughout the known world. Now, over 1900 years later, faithful congregations modeled after the biblical pattern are still being established.
One such congregation is that which meets here in Wynnewood, OK. Just as the original church we read of in the Bible offered up true worship, without human innovations such as mechanical instruments, multiple cups, and Sunday school, so do we (Acts 2:42). Rather than please men, our desire is to please God in song, prayer, weekly observance of the Lord’s Supper (Acts 20:7), weekly collection (1 Co.16:1,2), and apostolic teaching.
We believe you will find very interesting the following abbreviated history of the Wynnewood congregation composed by Sister Voncille Shipley. Click here to read our dear sister’s well-researched historical account.
Long before the Roman Catholic Church and protestant groups came into being, existed the church of Christ. Yes, many religious groups claim to be the original church of Christ, but they differ from the church we read about in the Bible. If you visit us, you will discover that we have no creed but Christ, no book but the Bible, no law but love, no name but the divine. Where the Scriptures speak, we speak; where the Scriptures are silent, we are silent. We are a small collection of friendly, tenderhearted, devout disciples who worship God as they did in the first century, with simplicity, sincerity and truth. We hope you will make plans to worship with us.
The Ancient Faith website is a thematic collection of scholarly yet simple Bible essays and sermons, many of which were composed by Restoration preachers such as J.W. McGarvey, Moses Lard, Benjamin Franklin, and Alexander Campbell. These courageous men of faith through hours of Bible investigation studied themselves out of denominationalism, asking for “the old paths” (Jer. 6:16) and seeking to return to “the faith once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). We join with these men in their fervent plea to restore “the ancient order,” “the ancient gospel” or, as it was sometimes called, “the ancient faith.”
