About Hempfield Church of Christ:

We are a non-denominational family of Christ followers who gather weekly for instruction, encouragement, and worship of our God. It is our purpose to Love God, Grow Together and Serve the World. We want to live this out in every area of our lives. We believe that we are better together and strive to help each other in our daily journey to be more like Jesus.

Jesus taught us, "Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age." He also said, "You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: 'Love your neighbor as yourself."

Our mission then is to help people become followers of Christ and to learn to love God and to love each other.
