A Vision For A New Testament Community

“The pivot point hangs on whether or not God has revealed a universal pattern for the church in the New Testament. If He has not, then anything will do so long as it works.  But I am convinced that nothing so dear to the heart of Christ as His Bride should be left without explicit instructions as to her corporate conduct. I am further convinced that the 20th century has in no way simulated this pattern in its method of  ‘churching’ a community...it is incumbent upon me, if God has a pattern for the church, to find and establish that pattern, at all costs.”  -Jim Elliot

The Church of CharlottesvilleTM is a endeavoring to create a New Testament Vision For The Modern Day Church. We seek to follow the Apostolic foundation of New Testament churches. This includes the principles and practices...the form and the function...the teachings and traditions given to us by the Apostles and the New Testament writers.


We are praying for others to come alongside of us in this endeavor. Families, Couples and Singles that want to be a part of an intimate, theologically sound, distinct, God honoring, local Body of Christ. If interested, please feel free to contact us to set up a time to meet or talk on the phone.

Our Ultimate Desire

And indeed He gave some to be apostles; and some prophets; and some evangelists; and some pastors and teachers; with a view to the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ, until we all may come to the unity of the faith and of the full knowledge of the Son of God, to a full-grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be infants, being blown and carried about by every wind of doctrine, in the sleight of men, in craftiness to the deceit of error, but speaking the truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things, who is the Head, the Christ, from whom all the body, having been fitted and compacted together through every assisting bond, according to the effectual working of one measure in each part, produces the growth of the body to the building up of itself in love.
-Ephesians 4:11-16
