What We Believe
“We are known to be the disciples of Christ by the love we have for each other” – John 13:35
Linville Forest Church of Christ in Kernersville, NC is a congregation that believes in the will of God in accordance with the Bible. We are centered around the Bible and its teachings following the leadership of our appointed Elders. Our church provides a welcoming environment for learning, living and sharing God’s will.
We have a devotion to the Lord’s will. Linville Forest Church of Christ is a family and together, we live out His will while staying true to the words of the Bible. We are proud to offer a number of programs for young children, teenagers as well as adults and seniors. Our events throughout the year are aimed at promoting the bond between God’s family and the strength that comes from it. We feed off that strength in order to reach those outside of our Church.
