Our Story

How it all started...

The Catlin Church of Christ traces its roots to the Stone-Campbell Movement of early nineteenth-century America. Named after its principal leaders, Barton W. Stone and Alexander Campbell, this movement sought to unite all Christians on the clear teachings of Scripture for the sake of spreading the gospel message. Congregations that aligned themselves with these principles simply chose to call themselves "Christian Churches" or "Churches of Christ" in reverence to Christ as Lord.

The Catlin congregation began in 1865, in the shadow of the Civil War, and has worshipped in its present facility since 1956. The pace of life has changed dramatically over the past century and a half. Yet, as we strive to address the challenges of contemporary life, we continue to draw strength from our rich history and biblical heritage. Buildings and programs come and go, but "the Word of our God stands forever" (Isaiah 40:8). 

Expanding the vision...

to Look Up in WORSHIP
Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,  praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.  Acts 2:46-47

to Team Up in COMMUNITY
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.  Romans 12:4-8

to Speak Up with the GOSPEL
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  Matt 28:18-20
