who we are

Boulevard Christian Church is a non-denominational church, which means that we are not affiliated with any one group of Christians or churches exclusively. We only see ourselves as a local expression of the Body of Christ located universally throughout the world.

We believe and stand on the Bible as our rule of faith and practice. Our plea is unity, our call is truth, and our attitude is love. Our cause is to glorify God in all things and to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10),  We desire nothing more than to be obedient to Christ and His Word and to love people.

The two essentials for us are 1) the basic facts of the Gospel; that is, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and 2) the supreme authority and infallibility of the Bible as the guide to our Christian faith and practice.  We simply seek unity in Christ Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

Boulevard Christian Church has a plea with a universal appeal. Jesus prayed: that “they all may be one” (John 17:21). Everywhere Christian people are seeking unity today. This unity must be Christ-centered if it is to endure.

Boulevard Christian Church offers a name all can wear. “And in Antioch the Disciples were for the first time called Christians” (Acts 11:26). This name is acceptable to all followers of Christ.

Boulevard Christian Church presents a creed all can accept. “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16). The New Testament requires only a plain statement of faith in Christ as the Son of the living God (see Acts 8:37). The Apostle Paul says the same thing in the statement, “Jesus is Lord.” This is the basic truth in Christianity. It distinguishes Christianity from all other religions of the world.

Boulevard Christian Church observes the Lord’s Supper in a way all can share. “Do this in remembrance of Me” (Luke 22:19). The New Testament strongly implies that the Lord’s Supper was observed as often as Christians gathered to worship (Acts 20:7). The Lord’s Supper is the spiritual center of our worship service every week. Each person decides for himself or herself whether or not to share in its observance. It is Christ’s supper and not ours; therefore, we feel that no person has any right to exclude another individual from Christ’s table who has received him as Lord and Savior.

Boulevard Christian Church is organized under a form of government in which all can be free. Boulevard is Elder led, just as the church at Corinth or Antioch was in the New Testament. Elders (as outlined in 1 Timothy 3) are the ultimate human authority under the divine authority of Jesus Christ, the head of the body. Motivated by unity, Christ’s mission and love, congregations voluntarily cooperated in many ways in various Christian endeavors.
