Children are divided into two age groups: 2-3 years old and 4-6 years old. Both groups enjoy singing, snacks, Bible lessons, and crafts. Parents are asked to pick up their children immediately at the end of services.

The Bellevue family does VBS on a grand scale! The entire building is decorated by a team of volunteers. Preparation starts in January for the VBS in June and actual decoration to prepare for the arrival of kids starts 2-3 weeks prior to the first kid stepping in the door.

Our VBS provides a coordinated course of Bible study for all ages with the emphasis on teaching our children and those children whose families are not Christian. This ministry is used as an outreach tool for the community. There are Bible classes, skits, learning centers, and other activities for preschool through the fifth grade, plus an adult class. This ministry requires the efforts of the whole congregation.

VBS is normally scheduled for the second week in June of each year.

Vision & Mission

Mission Statement

We envision our youth seeing God as their Lord and Creator of all things and Christ as the only answer for the sin in this world. We want to provide the opportunity to know God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit better through Bible study, small groups, parental and church involvement as well as various activities.  Our youth should love God and each other as Christ has loved us, be able to stand firm with conviction and gently defend the Truth, and impact those around them with His love by always seeking an opportunity to share Him with the world, not only during their time in the youth group but also after they have graduated to the next stage in their lives.

Vision Statement

This ministry strives to teach the youth of the church about Christ, teach them to use their talents for the Lord, and bring them to spiritual maturity so as to be future leaders in the church. This will be accomplished through wholesome, organized activities to draw the youth together and challenge them in the work of the Kingdom. The youth ministry team shall be made up of the youth minister, parents, and adult sponsors. The team will ensure Biblical instruction and relevant life application is provided. 1 Peter 3:15, Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4; Colossians 1:28-29; 2 Timothy 3:15

This ministry is dedicated to develop congregational awareness and commitment in extending the Gospel to domestic and foreign lands and provide the communication link with selected missionary personnel. The mission team shall be responsible for mission work financially supported by this church. Mark 16:15; 1 Corinthians 9:13-14; 2 Corinthians 11:7-9; Philippians 2:25; 1 Thessalonians 1:7-8

We currently support missionaries in Ukraine, Russia, Cameroon, Haiti, Uganda and Denver, Nebraska City, Sunset Bible Institute, Bear Valley Bible Institute, York College as well as others here in America.

We also support members who want to go on campaigns as well as certain organizations who need emergency help. We have had members sent to Ukraine, Haiti, Kenya, and our youth group has served the High Plains Children’s Home in Amarillo, Texas for several years. Through weekly contributions and special contributions, we aim to serve in areas where a brother or sister is serving.

The mission field is our own backyard as well. In the Bible passage in John 4:27-38,  we are told in V35 tells us that “the fields are white (ripe) for harvest”, meaning there is work/mission for all to serve in. Not just by missionaries, but by all who are Christians! Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15-16

Prayer in the Park

Prayer in the Park was started with the desire of getting out into our community, meeting our neighbors, and offering up a prayer for those in need.  Our booth is set up in a high traffic area of Washington Park during the Saturday morning Bellevue Farmer’s Market.  There is nothing better than starting your Saturday with brothers and sisters in Christ greeting, meeting, and reaching out to those in our local community.  Our mission each Saturday is to be friendly, greet people, let them know who we are, where we are, and invite them to worship with us!  It’s such a blessing to be able to talk with our neighbors, get to know them, and offer to pray for them or someone they know who is in need of prayer.  Prayer in the Park has been a great blessing to those who have served with us and we know the seeds of the Gospel are being planted each Saturday at the Bellevue Farmer’s Market. Please come join us!

” God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfill His promises, leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself. ” ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer



Thank you for visiting our website. We have created these frequently asked quotations and answers to address some of the more frequent and basic questions we are asked regularly about our church, what we believe, how we worship, and more. Please enjoy your time here, click around to learn more about our ministries.

What kind of church is Bellevue church of Christ?
Bellevue Church of Christ is a non-denominational church solely founded upon God’s Word. Each local church of Christ independently and autonomously runs its own affairs. We have a plurality of elders ( 1 Tim. 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9 ) who shepherd the flock to ensure we stand firm on the Truth, the Word of God. Deacons ( 1 Timothy 3:8-13 ), men who have volunteered to serve as a leader in a particular area of ministry for the family in Bellevue. As stated in the Bible, the head of the Lord’s church is Christ ( Ephesians 5:23 ) and here at Bellevue, we strive to follow the New Testament pattern ( Acts 2 ) for His church.

Membership in the church of Christ takes place when an individual obeys the Gospel by being buried with Christ through baptism ( Acts 2:38-47 ). There are no cards to fill out that makes one a member of a church, but merely following the pattern we see in God’s Word. We may ask you to fill out a card, but that is so we can know your name and try to get to know you a little better while we all serve God together.

What is your worship like at Bellevue?
In a word, “Biblical”. We are privileged each Sunday to offer worship to God through prayer, song, communion, a lesson based on Scripture, and a weekly contribution (don’t worry, we don’t ask any of our visitors to give money unless they choose to).

One of the first things that may seem different to you if you’ve never worshiped at a church of Christ is that we sing without musical instruments! We read in the Bible that we are commanded to sing and make melody with our hearts ( Ephesians 5:19 ), so we praise and worship God without any instrument other than our voices. God gave us the most beautiful instrument of all to worship and sing praises to Him, our hearts. Don’t feel like you have to know every song, melody, etc., just sing from your heart and allow yourself to praise Him as His Word tells us to.

Psalm 100:1–5 Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth. Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing. Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. For the LORD is good; His loving-kindness is everlasting and His faithfulness to all generations.

What should I wear when coming to Bellevue?

There is no dress code at our church. Many people dress up, and just as many come dressed casually. When you worship with us you should be comfortable. Your comfort may be traditional church attire, jeans, and sneakers, or business casual. Come as you are! James 2:1-5

As a visitor, will I have to say anything or be singled out?

You will not be asked to say anything or introduce yourself as a visitor during worship. As our way of welcoming you, we do want to greet and welcome you, but never in a way that would make you feel uncomfortable.

You will be asked to fill out a guest information card if you would like more information about our church or have questions or a desire to learn more about God and the local church here in Bellevue.

Our sole purpose when meeting you is to let you know you are welcome here and to provide any answers or help you may need to decide if you want to make the Bellevue Church of Christ your place to worship. We hope you choose to worship with us, but we will not pressure you to do so.

Does your church take Communion?
Note: Because of COVID-19 we are not having Sunday evening worship services. We are still taking communion in the morning only in the way of portable sealed cups that you grab prior to sitting down.

The Lord’s Supper also referred to as Communion is observed each Sunday during worship and Sunday evening if an individual was unable to attend morning services. All Christians participate as we remember and honor Christ’s death on the cross. This is a time of remembrance and the unleavened bread and the fruit of the vine (grape juice) is not His literal body, but a symbol to remind us of His sacrifice for us. Without Christ’s willing and complete sacrifice there would be no hope for mankind. Matthew 26:26-29, Mark 14:22–25; Luke 22:19, 20; 1 Cor. 11:23–26, Acts 20:7

Men from the congregation will pass around a tray that has unleavened bread which members break off a small piece that represents Christ’s body that hung on the cross. It is not His literal body, but a symbol to remind us of His sacrifice for all sin. After the bread, a tray filled with tiny individual cups of grape juice is passed around by the men of the church. Each member takes one of the cups drinks and places the empty cup back into the tray. This grape juice, the “fruit of the vine”, represents Christ’s blood that was shed on for us. Without His willing and complete sacrifice, there would be no hope for mankind.

For more study and information, please read the following passages from the New Testament: Matthew 26:26-29, Mark 14:22–25; Luke 22:19, 20; 1 Cor. 11:23–26, Acts 20:7

Do you sing or have a praise band?
Our singing is “a cappella” – meaning that we do not sing with musical instruments, only our voice. In fact, the word “a cappella” is Italian meaning “in the style of the church”. Therefore, since the New Testament leaves instrumental music out, we do as well. In fact, there is no reference to instrumental music in early church worship in the New Testament, or in the worship of churches for the first six centuries. 1 Corinthians 14:15Ephesians 5:1819Colossians 3:16Hebrews 2:12
Is prayer a part of your worship service?
Yes! Prayer is a chance to talk to God. There are no special rules or words you must use, but our prayers must come from your heart. Prayer is a wonderful opportunity to give thanks to God, confess your sins, ask for forgiveness, and to seek His guidance not only during worship but in your daily life. Matthew 6:5-151 Thessalonians 5:17Matthew 6:6-14Eph. 6:18James 5:13
How do I become a member of the Lords Church?
It’s easy! You don’t fill out a card in order to become a part of God’s family. The Bible teaches that baptism adds you to the body of Christ, (i.e. His church).

Remember, we can never be “good enough” ( Romans 3:23, 6:23 ) by our own accords to be saved. We are all sinners and can never be saved on our own. We know and understand that it is only by God’s abundant grace and mercy that we are saved.

We see the pattern of how one becomes a child of God (Christian) repeated throughout the New Testament. This pattern of how a sinner becomes a Christian is what we follow in Bellevue. When a sinner hears ( Romans 10:14-17 ) and believes the Gospel message of Jesus (Hebrews 11:6), he would confess his sins (Romans 10:9-10, Acts 8:37), repent ( fancy word for turning away from sin, Acts 17:10, Luke 13:3, 2 Corinthians 7:10, Acts 2:38 ) and be baptized ( immersion, not sprinkling- Acts 2:38, Galatians 3:26-27, Mark 16:15-16, 1 Peter 3:21 ). In fact, in the Book of Acts, each example of conversion, the individual obeyed the command to be baptized! Then he would be called to live a faithful Christian life (Revelation 2:10, 2 Peter 2:20-22, James 5:19-20; Acts 8:22; 1 John 1:9) until Christ comes again to bring His faithful family home to heaven.

That’s it, after you obey the gospel plan that is laid out in Scripture you are now a member of God’s family.

What time and how long are your Sunday services?

Because of the COVID-19 crisis, we are only performing Sunday morning worship services at this time. Thank you for your understanding.

Our Sunday morning Bible classes for all ages start every Sunday at 9:15 am. In our classes, you can know that you will study God’s Word and have the opportunity to grow closer to God and each other through study, prayer, conversation, and fellowship.

Our worship services on Sunday morning start at 10:15 am and last about an hour and fifteen minutes. If you can’t make it to our Bible study at 9:15, please come for worship. Our worship services offer songs of faith and praise, a Biblically sound and relevant message for today as well as a welcoming, loving atmosphere, and friendly people who are eager to meet you, fellowship with you and connect with you.

We recommend arriving about 15 minutes before the service to allow time for parking and to give us a chance to welcome you!

Where will my kids go at Bellevue?
The Bellevue church is a family-friendly church with a strong commitment to building a Godly foundation in our children, youth, and young adults. We offer specialized classes for children and youth of all ages – from infants through teenagers.

All of our children and youth ministries allow your children to grow and experience the promises of God through praise, worship, and Biblical instruction, according to Matthew 19:14.

Will I be asked to give an offering?
As a guest, you are welcome but not expected to make an offering or contribution. The time set aside for our contribution during our services is for members who give freely what they have prepared and prayed for in their hearts. Our members give as part of their commitment to God and the church, in order to help the local church and His Kingdom grow.

2 Corinthians 9:7 Each one must do (give) just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Will the Bellevue church pray for me?

Absolutely! The Bellevue church is a praying church. Simply fill out the prayer request on the Guest Card and we will pray for you specifically at the end of services. At the end of the sermon, the minister will offer an invitation for those who are in need of prayer to come forward and be prayed for by the minister or one of the elders. During this invitation, if you would like to study or learn more about salvation and what is required of you, you can come forward at this time as well.

We are also available to pray with you privately. If you would like to keep your prayer private, the elders will set aside a time to pray for you. In addition, we have a weekly prayer meeting each Thursday where the members gather to pray for those who are in need.

If you wish, you may also send prayer requests online through the online form here (and at the bottom of our website) or call the church office. Your prayer request will be forwarded to our minister and our elders.

Who attends the Bellevue Church of Christ?

Our members and visitors are young and old, single and married, with and without children. We have military members, teachers, students, and people from every walk of life. No one is more valued than another as we are all the same in God’s eyes. We’d love to add you to our family here in Bellevue as we continue to grow in God’s Kingdom.

How do we know that your preaching is scriptural?
Through the study of God’s word, we see throughout the New Testament the apostles of Christ preaching and teaching to both the sinners and Christians alike. We all need to hear God’s Word and here at Bellevue, you can rely on the knowledge that the Truth will be preached each and every Sunday. We will not bend to popular worldly beliefs but will stand on the Word of God! 1 Corinthians 16:13, John 17:17, Galatians 1:10, 1 Peter 5:8, Ephesians 6:10-18

In addition, we always encourage you to read the bible on your own to verify that the information you are hearing is correct. If you don’t have a bible please make mention of it before you leave and we will find one for you.

Some topics are harder to understand than others in this case there are many who would love to have an opportunity to study these topics with you not just our minister.
