Welcome

We warmly invite you to join us at one of our meetings.

We treasure the Holy Bible as God’s revelation of Himself and of His eternal purpose. We hold the common faith which is revealed in the Bible and is common to all genuine believers. As is true of all believers in Christ, we are members of His one Body, the church. In order to practice the oneness of the Body with all the Christians in Plano, we meet as the church in Plano. Thus, the church in Plano is not our name, it is our description. We are in fellowship with thousands of local churches worldwide to express the one Body of Christ.

Home Meeting

Acts 2:46-47a  “And day by day, continuing steadfastly with one accord in the temple and breaking bread from house to house, they partook of their food with exultation and simplicity of heart, praising God and having grace with all the people.”

When the church was established, three thousand people were saved, and later five thousand men were baptized (v. 41; 4:4). Altogether, at least eight thousand people received salvation. How did they live the church life? The church met together, but how did this many people meet? In other words, what was the foundation of their meetings? With anything that we do, there is always a foundation. Even language has a foundation. The twenty-six letters of the English alphabet are the foundation of the English language. What is the foundation of the church meetings? The eight thousand who were saved met in the temple and from house to house, from one house to another (2:46; 5:42). When they were in the temple, mainly Peter, John, and the other apostles spoke. But there was no way for Peter and John to meet with all eight thousand people, comprising a minimum of a thousand homes; the believers needed to meet from house to house.

Acts 5:42 says, “Every day, in the temple and from house to house, they did not cease teaching and announcing the gospel of Jesus as the Christ.” Those who were saved for even a day or two began to meet in their homes, and they did not speak the teachings of Moses or Elijah. Every household was speaking what they heard from Peter in the temple.

The crucial point is that the meetings in the homes were the foundation of the church meetings. A big meeting in the temple was not the foundation. The believers who were produced by the speaking in the temple were brought to meetings in individual homes. In other words, the building up of the church did not depend on the big meetings in the temple; rather, the building up of the church depended on the meetings in the homes, the meetings from house to house.

Our Beliefs

We hold the faith which is common to all the believers: (Titus 1:4, Jude 3)

The Bible is the complete divine revelation inspired word by word by God through the Holy Spirit. (2 Pet. 1:21, 2 Tim. 3:16)

God is uniquely one, yet triune; the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. (1 Tim. 2:5a, Matt. 28:19)

The Son of God, even God Himself, was incarnated to be a man by the name of Jesus Christ. (John 1:1, John 1:14)

Christ died on the cross for our sins, shedding His blood for our redemption. (1 Pet. 2:24, Eph. 1:7a)

Christ resurrected from among the dead on the third day. (1 Cor. 15:4)

Christ ascended to the right hand of God to be Lord of all. (Acts 1:9, Acts 2:33, Acts 2:36)

Whenever any person repents to God and believes in the Lord Jesus Christ, he is regenerated (born again) and becomes a living member of the one Body of Christ. (Acts 20:21, John 3:3, Eph. 1:22-23, Rom. 12:5)

Christ is coming again to receive His believers to Himself. (1 Thes. 2:19)
