Welcome to West Innes Street Church of Christ

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site. Our hope is that you will find this site helpful, informative and uplifting.



Who We Are

We are a group of Christians that regularly meet together for the purpose of worshiping God. We are not a denomination and we have no creed but that which is contained in the New Testament. Since the Bible is our only guide, we speak where the Bible speaks and remain silent where the Bible is silent.

Thoughts by brother Frank Shepard (Originally published: 01/08/2001)

   When someone is near-sighted, he can see clearly those things near to his eyes.  When he is far-sighted, things close to his eyes are out of focus while those at a distance are clear.  There are a fortunate few who don't have limited vision but are able to see clearly both near and far.

Sometimes life's experiences might appear to be unpleasant at first.  Later, as we get further away from them and in time they turn out to be a blessing.  For the disciples, the crucifixion of their Master seemed to be a terrible thing.  But when they saw the resurrected Savior they learned that such a terrible thing led to something so wonderful for all men.  When you have an experience that seems to be a bad thing and you feel depressed or all alone, it may be that you are only seeing things that are near and need to look beyond the problem of the moment to the distant scene to see a better outcome.  Jesus looked beyond the cross and saw His resurrection.

May we have the attitude of Jesus toward our own troubles and always look for the blessing in them.
