The Long Island Church of Christ is a bible-based church. We generally speak where the Bible speaks and are silent where the Bible is silent. The Bible is our only guide— no man-made additional creeds/booklets/instructions are required. The absolute guidance from the scriptures is taken from three hermeneutical principles: - We follow commandments of the scriptures - We follow examples from Jesus, the Apostles, and early Christians - We derive necessary inferences from the scripture In line with our doctrinal/Biblical beliefs, our worship services always consist of the following practices to mirror the First Century Church in the New Testament: - Singing (a capella: the way of the early church, without instrumental music) - Preaching (study of God’s word) - Prayer - Giving (weekly) - Communion/Lord’s Supper (weekly)
