We strive to be a friendly church that seeks to serve God in everything we do! Our leadership is strong with dedicated elders, ministers and deacons. Our Pulpit minister and his wife are Mark and Denise Hammitt. After 20 years as youth minister, Mark became our preacher in 2010. Brother Hammitt also presents a one minute lesson on the local ABC affiliate (K-III) every weekday. George Pledger enjoyed 46 successful years of preaching the Gospel at Weber Road before retiring in 2010. Brother Pledger received his heavenly reward in April, 2013. His wife, Evelyn, is still a part of our church family. We have an active youth group coordinated by Stephen Charlebois. We have activities for our 6-12 grade students. If you want to be part of a strong youth group come and visit us, we would love to have you! We also offer Free Bible correspondence courses for anyone who requests, which will be mailed to your home. At the building, we offer free CD copies of sermons. We encourage all people to come visit us at the Weber Road Church of Christ. We view one another as a family and we would like to see you the next opportunity you have to visit with us.

Won’t you join us this Sunday?

The Churches of Christ.
Who are these people?

 By Joe R. Barnett

You have probably heard of churches of Christ. And perhaps you’ve asked, “Who are these
people? What–if anything–distinguishes them from the hundreds of other churches in the world?”

You may have wondered:

“What is their historical background?”
“How many members do they have?”
“What is their message?”
“How are they governed?”
“How do they worship?”
“What do they believe about the Bible?”

How Many Members?

Worldwide there are some 20,000 congregations of churches of Christ with a total of 21/2 to 3 million individual members. There are small congregations, consisting of just a few members–and large ones made up of several thousand members.

The greatest concentration of numerical strength in churches of Christ is in the southern United States where, for instance, there are about 40,000 members in some 135 congregations in Nashville, Tennessee. Or, in Dallas, Texas, where there are approximately 36,000 members in 69 congregations. In such states as Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Kentucky–and others–there is a church of Christ in practically every town, no matter how large or small.

While the number of congregations and members is not so numerous in other places, there are churches of Christ in every state in the United States and in 109 other countries.

People of Restoration Spirit

Members of churches of Christ are a people of restoration spirit–wanting to restore in our time the original New Testament church.

Dr. Hans Kung, a well-known European theologian, published a book a few years ago entitled The Church. Dr. Kung lamented the fact that the established church has lost its way; has become burdened down with tradition; has failed to be what Christ planned it should be.

The only answer, according to Dr. Kung, is to go back to the scriptures to see what the church was in its beginning, and then to recover in the twentieth century the essence of the original church. This is what churches of Christ are seeking to do.

In the latter part of the 18th century, men of different denominations, studying independently of each other, in various parts of the world, began to ask:

-Why not go back beyond denominationalism to the simplicity and purity of the first-century church?
-Why not take the Bible alone and once again continue “steadfastly in the apostles’ teaching…” (Acts 2:42)?
-Why not plant the same seed (the Word of God, Luke 8:11), that first century Christians planted, and be Christians only, as they were?
They were pleading with everyone to throw off denominationalism, to throw away human creeds, and to follow only the Bible.

They taught that nothing should be required of people as acts of faith except that which is evident in the scriptures.

They emphasized that going back to the Bible does not mean the establishment of another denomination, but rather a return to the original church.

Members of churches of Christ are enthusiastic about this approach. With the Bible as our only guide we seek to find what the original church was like and restore it exactly.

We do not see this as arrogance, but the very opposite. We are saving that we do not have the right to ask for men’s allegiance to a human organization-but only the right to call upon men to follow God’s blueprint.

Not A Denomination

For this reason, we are not interested in man-made creeds, but simply in the New Testament pattern. We do not conceive of ourselves as being a denomination –nor as Catholic, Protestant, or Jewish — but simply as members of the church which Jesus established and for which he died.

And that, incidentally, is why we wear his name. The term “church of Christ” is not used as a denominational designation, but rather as a descriptive term indicating that the church belongs to Christ.

We recognize our own personal shortcomings and weaknesses–and this is all the more reason for wanting to carefully follow the all-sufficient and perfect plan God has for the church.

Unity Based Upon The Bible

Since God has vested “all authority” in Christ (Matthew 28:18), and since he serves as God’s spokesman today (Hebrews 1:1,2), it is our conviction that only Christ has the authority to say what the church is and what we should teach.

And since only the New Testament sets forth Christ’s instructions to his disciples, it alone must serve as the basis for all religious teaching and practice. This is fundamental with members of churches of Christ. We believe that teaching the New Testament without modification is the only way to lead men and women to become Christians.

We believe religious division is bad. Jesus prayed for unity (John 17). And later, the apostle Paul begged those who were divided to unite in Christ (1 Corinthians 1).

We believe the only way to achieve unity is by a return to the Bible. Compromise cannot bring unity. And surely no person, nor group of persons, has the right to draw up a set of rules by which everyone must abide. But it is altogether proper to say, “Let’s unite by just following the Bible.” This is fair. This is safe. This is right.

So churches of Christ plead for religious unity based upon the Bible. We believe that to subscribe to any creed other than the New Testament, to refuse to obey any New Testament command, or to follow any practice not sustained by the New Testament is to add to or take away from the teachings of God. And both additions and subtractions are condemned in the Bible (Galatians 1:6-9; Revelation 22:18,19).

This is the reason the New Testament is the only rule of faith and practice we have in churches of Christ.

Each Congregation Self-Governed

Churches of Christ have none of the trappings of modern-day organizational bureaucracy. There are no governing boards–neither district, regional, national nor international–no earthly headquarters and no man-designed organization.

Each congregation is autonomous (self- ruled) and is independent of every other congregation. The only tie which binds the many congregations together is a common allegiance to Christ and the Bible.

There are no conventions, annual meetings, nor official publications. Congregations do cooperate in supporting children’s homes, homes for the elderly, mission work, etc. However, participation is strictly voluntary on the part of each congregation and no person nor group issues policies or makes decisions for other congregations.

Each congregation is governed locally by a plurality of elders selected from among the members. These are men who meet the specific qualifications for this office given in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1.

There are also deacons in each congregation. These must meet the biblical qualifications of 1 Timothy 3. I

Items of Worship

Worship in churches of Christ centers in five items, the same as in the first-century church. We believe the pattern is important. Jesus said, “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:24). From this statement we learn three things:

1) Our worship must be directed to the right object … God;

2) It must be prompted by the right spirit;

3) It must be according to truth.

To worship God according to truth is to worship him according to his Word, because his Word is truth (John 17:17). Therefore, we must not exclude any item found in his Word, and we must not include any item not found in his Word.

In matters of religion we are to walk by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7). Since faith comes by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17), anything not authorized by the Bible cannot be done by faith … and whatever is not of faith is sin (Romans 14:23).

The five items of worship observed by the first-century church were singing, praying, preaching, giving, and eating the Lord’s Supper.

If you are acquainted with churches of Christ you are probably aware that in two of these items our practice is different from that of most religious groups. So permit me to focus on these two, and state our reasons for what we do.

A Cappella Singing

One of the things people most frequently notice about churches of Christ is that we sing without the use of mechanical instruments of music — a cappella singing is the only music used in our worship.

Simply stated, here is the reason: we are seeking to worship according to the instructions of the New Testament. The New Testament leaves instrumental music out, therefore, we believe it right and safe to leave it out, too. If we used the mechanical instrument we would have to do so without New Testament authority.

There are only 8 verses in the New Testament on the subject of music in worship. Here they are:

“And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives” (Matthew 26:30).

” about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God …”(Acts 16:25).

Therefore I will praise Thee among the Gentiles, and sing to thy name” (Romans 15:9).

“. . . I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the mind also” (1 Corinthians 14:15).

“. . . be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with all your heart” (Ephesians 5:18,19).

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as you teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, and as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God” (Colossians 3:16).

“I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto Thee” (Hebrews 2:12).

“Is any one among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praise” (James 5:13).

The mechanical instrument of music is conspicuously absent in these passages.

Historically, the first appearance of instrumental music in church worship was not until the sixth century A.D., and there was no general practicing of it until after the eighth century.

Instrumental music was strongly opposed by such religious leaders as John Calvin, John Wesley and Charles Spurgeon because of its absence in the New Testament.

Weekly Observance of The Lord’s Supper

Another place where you may have noticed a difference between churches of Christ and other religious groups is in the Lord’s Supper. This memorial supper was inaugurated by Jesus on the night of his betrayal (Matthew 26:26-28). It is observed by Christians in memory of the Lord’s death (1 Corinthians 11:24,25). The emblems – unleavened bread and fruit of the vine – symbolize the body and blood of Jesus (1 Corinthians 10:16).

Churches of Christ are different from many in that we observe the Lord’s Supper on the first day of every week. Again, our reason centers in our determination to follow the teaching of the New Testament. It says, describing the practice of the first-century church, “And upon the first day of the week . . . the disciples came together to break bread …” (Acts 20:7).

Some have objected that the text does not specify the first day of every week. This is true–just as the command to observe the Sabbath did not specify every Sabbath. The command was simply, “remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8). The Jews understood that to mean every Sabbath. It seems to us that by the same reasoning “the first day of the week” means the first day of every week.

Again, we know from such respected historians as Neander and Eusebius that Christians in those early centuries took the Lord’s Supper every Sunday.

Terms of Membership

Perhaps you are wondering, “How does one become a member of the church of Christ?” What are the terms of membership?

Churches of Christ do not speak of membership in terms of some formula which must be followed for approved acceptance into the church. The New Testament gives certain steps which were taken by people in that day to become Christians. When a person became a Christian he automatically was a member of the church.

The same is true of churches of Christ today. There is no separate set of rules or ceremonies which one must follow to be inducted into the church. When one becomes a Christian he, at the same time, becomes a member of the church. No further steps are required to qualify for church membership.

On the first day of the church’s existence those who repented and were baptized were saved (Acts 2:38). And from that day forward all those who were saved were added to the church (Acts 2:47). According to this verse (Acts 2:47) it was God who did the adding. Therefore, in seeking to follow this pattern, we neither vote people into the church nor force them through a required series of studies. We have no right to demand anything beyond their obedient submission to the Savior.

The conditions of pardon which are taught in the New Testament are:

1) One must hear the gospel, for “faith comes by hearing the word of God” (Romans 10:17).

2) One must believe, for “without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6).

3) One must repent of past sins, for God “commands all men, every- where to repent” (Acts 17:30).

4) One must confess Jesus as Lord, for he said, “He that confesses me before men, him will I also confess before my father who is in heaven” (Matthew 10:32).

5) And one must be baptized for the remission of sins, for Peter said, “Repent, and be baptized every- one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins …” (Acts 2:38).

Emphasis on Baptism

Churches of Christ have a reputation for placing much stress on the need for baptism. However, we do not emphasize baptism as a “church ordinance,” but as a command of Christ. The New Testament teaches baptism as an act which is essential to salvation (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16).

We do not practice infant baptism because New Testament baptism is only for sinners who turn to the Lord in belief and penitence. An infant has no sin to repent of, and cannot qualify as a believer.

The only form of baptism we practice in churches of Christ is immersion. The Greek word from which the word baptize comes means “to dip, to immerse, to sub- merge, to plunge.” And the Scriptures always point to baptism as a burial (Acts 8:35-39; Romans 6:3,4; Colossians 2:12).

Baptism is extremely important because the New Testament sets forth the following purposes for it:

1) It is to enter the kingdom (John 3:5).

2) It is to contact Christ’s blood (Romans 6:3,4).

3) It is to get into Christ (Galatians 3:27).

4) It is for salvation (Mark 16:16; 1 Peter 3:21).

5) It is for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38).

6) It is to wash away sins (Acts 22:16).

7) It is to get into the church (1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:23).

Since Christ died for the sins of the whole world and the invitation to share in his saving grace is open to everyone (Acts 10:34,35; Revelation 22:17), we do not believe that anyone is predestined for salvation or condemnation. Some will choose to come to Christ in faith and obedience and will be saved. Others will reject his plea and be condemned (Mark 16:16). These will not be lost because they were marked for condemnation, but because that’s the path they chose.

Wherever you are at this moment, we hope you will decide to accept the salvation offered by Christ – that you will offer yourself in obedient faith and become a member of his church.

What You Can Expect

When YouVisit the

Church of Christ

We want you to visit us at the Weber Road church of Christ. And we want you to feel comfortable. But we know an unfamiliar place can be intimidating.  So let us tell you what you can expect when you honor us with a visit.


A brief description of our background may help you understand us.

We are a part of “The Restoration Movement.” Our goal is to “restore” the New Testament church in our time—to determine from the Bible what the church was like in the beginning, and to be like that. We believe this is a worthy and reverent goal.

We want to be a Bible-centered church. And we try to be. Yet we know that our conclusions aren’t flawless, and that our practices are sometimes colored by habit, preference, tradition, or convenience. Now, let us walk you through a worship service.

There may be some variations from this description, because every church of Christ is autonomous. Self-ruled. Independent.

The Setting

Some churches of Christ meet in homes or rented facilities. However, most, for the sake of convenience, have erected a church building.

You will enter what we refer to as the “auditorium.” There will be rows of chairs or pews for the worshipers. There are no reserved seats, so feel free to sit anywhere you choose.


In a bookrack near you, there will be a hymnbook for your use. When the song leader announces a number, you can turn to that number in the hymnbook to find the words and music.

One of the unique things about churches of Christ—and something you may find strange—is that the music is “a cappella.” That is, we sing without the accompaniment of musical instruments.

This is a conviction with us, not just a preference. It has its roots in our restoration heritage. We are seeking to worship according to the New Testament pattern. Since the New Testament leaves instrumental music out, we believe it’s best to exclude it, too.

1 Corinthians 14:15; Ephesians 5:18,19; Colossians 3:16; Hebrews 2:12

You may consider us narrow on this point. But we believe you will respect our reason for it, and our conviction. And we think you’ll find the singing meaningful, with everyone being invited to participate.


There will be several prayers during the service. And there may be prayers for specific needs and requests.


You will notice that the preacher doesn’t have a title. He won’t be referred to as Pastor or Reverend. He may be addressed as Dr., but only if he has earned that academic credential. He will probably be referred to as brother. Or Mister. Or, possibly, just called by his first name.

He won’t be wearing any ecclesiastical vestments which set him apart.

The reason for this is our belief in the priesthood of all believers. That all are equal.

The sermon will likely be from 20 to 30 minutes. We think you will find it refreshingly Bible-centered.

Matthew 23:8-12; Galatians 3:26-28; 1 Peter 2:5,9


At the close of the sermon, the preacher will “extend an invitation.” This is simply an expedient time to invite those who are moved to do so to make a commitment or request prayer support.

He will encourage those who wish to “respond” to come to the front of the auditorium while the congregation sings a hymn.

Don’t feel ill-at-ease during this invitation. You will not be singled out in anyway.

There may be several who respond. Or none.

Some may respond for baptism. Some to confess sins. Some to ask for prayer for a specific need. Some to “identify” or “place membership” with this church.

If anyone responds for baptism, you will witness the baptism during this service. The baptism will be by immersion. And it will be for the remission of sins.

Acts 8:35-39; Romans 6:3,4; Colossians 2:12, Acts 2:38


Lord’s Supper

If you visit on a Sunday morning, the Lord’s Supper will be included in the worship proceedings—because churches of Christ observe this memorial every Sunday.

Again, the reason for this is our desire to follow New Testament teaching. The first century church celebrated this observance on the first day of the week. (Acts 20:7 )

We assume from this that they did it the first day of every week. And we know from respected historians that in early centuries the Lord’s Supper was an every-Sunday commemoration.

During this memorial, plates containing pieces of unleavened bread will be passed throughout the congregation. The bread symbolizes the body of Jesus. Each participating person will break off a piece of the bread and eat it.

1 Corinthians 11:23-25

Next, trays filled with small cups will be distributed. The cups will contain “fruit of the vine,’ usually grape juice, symbolizing the blood of Jesus. Each participant will drink the contents of one of the cups.

If you choose not to participate, don’t be embarrassed. Feel free to just pass the plate or tray to the person next to you.


Also, if you visit on a Sunday morning containers will be passed to collect the weekly financial offering.

1 Corinthians 16:1,2

As our guest, you are not expected to make a donation. Feel perfectly comfortable in just passing the collection plate on down the row.

What Will Be Expected of You

Nothing at all! You are welcome to participate. But don’t feel obligated to. Just observe, if that is your choice.

You may be asked to fill out a Visitor’s Card. This simply provides information so the church can write or call to thank you for your visit. Supply the information if you are comfortable doing so. But feel free to decline this request if you prefer.

The People

What kind of people can you expect to find? Pretty much the entire spectrum, as in any group. You will find traditionalists—and you’ll find those who prefer anything new over everything old.

You will find those of us who mistake our traditions for absolute truth, and get pretty bent out of shape when they are tampered with. And you’ll find those of us who are a bit smug at having been liberated from tradition.

You will find legalists and liberals—and a lot of people in between.

You will find happy people—and grouchy people. Friendly people—and unfriendly people. Loving people—and cantankerous people. People who are learning—and people who already know everything.

You’ll find us to be like the little West Texas community that has a billboard at the edge of town which says, “The Home of 3,000 Friendly People—And A Few Old Soreheads.”

You get the picture. We’re a diverse group, coming from varied backgrounds, and at different stages of knowledge and spiritual growth.

We don’t know everything. We don’t do everything right. We don’t always treat each other as we should. We haven’t arrived—we’re just on the journey.

But, you see, we were not brought together by any illusion of our perfection or righteousness. We were brought together by our recognition that we are sinners in need of the cleansing blood of Jesus.

Mark 2:17; Romans 5:6-9; Ephesians 1:7; 1 John 1:7

That’s the reason we can worship together, stick together, and, with God’s help, accomplish some things that make a difference.

You won’t have to look very far to find our failures.

But, bottom line, you will find people who love Jesus and love the Bible.

Weber Road

Church of Christ

The Weber Road Church of Christ is rich in history. While the congregation has occupied the present location at 5253 Weber Road in Corpus Christi, Texas since 1960, the congregation traces its roots in Corpus Christi all the way back to 1898.

Prior to 1898, there was no established congregation of the Churches of Christ in the city of Corpus Christi, Texas. In 1898, residents who were New Testament Christians began meeting in their homes. Then, for a while, they met in the old court house, until they were able to locate their first permanent meeting place on Leopard Street.

In 1907, the church moved into a small wooden building located at the corner of Furman Avenue and Staples Street. This building was destroyed in the great hurricane of 1919. Under the eldership of brother C. W. Sewell and brother J. M. Davis, a new stucco building was erected in 1920 on the same site where the old wooden building had previously stood. This new building was expanded in 1925 under the eldership of brother C. W. Sewell, brother J. M. Davis, and brother Petty.

Brother Sewell also served as the congregation’s preacher during these years. Besides brother Sewell, other men who served as preachers for the Furman Avenue congregation were Floyd Berry, J. E. Wainwright, Arthur Slater, L. E. Carpenter, R. L. Whiteside, brother Strickland, Tillman Pope, J. B. Nelson, E. S. Fitzgerald, W. T. Vaughn, Wilbur White, Robert Simmons, G. S. Westbrook, and Henry McBroom.

As the years passed and the membership increased, the need for more room became evident. A group of members left Furman Avenue and started the Hillcrest congregation. The Furman Avenue elders at this time were brothers E. F. Holland, W. F. Cottingham, and L. L. Harris. Years later, the Hillcrest congregation merged with the church in Annaville to form what is now the Arlington Heights Church of Christ. The Hillcrest building was then used by a group of African American brethren as their meeting place.

In 1932, another group left Furman Avenue to begin what is now the Ayers Street congregation. In 1949, a group of Furman Avenue members joined with others to start the Norton Street church, and in 1955 others helped start the Windsor Park congregation.

The facilities at Furman Avenue were still inadequate, however, so the elders, brothers Odus Stephen, Minor Deason, Guy Ford, and H. S. Patterson, appointed a committee of men to locate and purchase suitable property on which to erect a new building. The present site was chosen at the corner of Weber Road and Tiger Lane, just across the street from Mary Carroll High School.

Ground-breaking ceremonies were held in October 1959, and construction on the new facility began that same month. Construction on the new building continued steadily during the following months. Construction was completed in May 1960, and worship services were held in the new auditorium for the first time on May 8 of that year. The old Furman Avenue building was sold and eventually restored by the new owners. The building is still standing on its original site, and today houses a printing business. [Circa 1984]

Brother Henry McBroom began preaching for the Furman Avenue congregation in 1959. He remained with the congregation at the new location until the end of 1963.

In early 1964, George Pledger and his wife, Evelyn came to Weber Road. Brother Pledger and his family moved to Corpus Christi in January 1964, and George began working with the Weber Road Church of Christ on February 1 of that year. George Pledger has served the Weber Road congregation from 1964 to the present time. The ability to remain with one congregation for nearly 40 years certainly says a lot about the integrity and sound gospel preaching of this man.

By 1966, the new Weber Road facility was already plagued with the problem of inadequate space. To remedy this situation, an upstairs balcony was built above the existing auditorium. This new balcony increased both auditorium and classroom seating capacities.

On August 3, 1970, hurricane Celia hit the Texas coast packing winds up to 170 miles per hour. The Weber Road Church of Christ building suffered severe damage as a result. In 1972, plans were begun for the construction of a new auditorium and more classrooms. This expansion was to be added on to the existing building. Construction began in April 1972 and was completed in August 1973, resulting in our present building. A major renovation took place in 1998 to the auditorium and it has a seating capacity of approximately 520 people.

In addition to the auditorium, the current facilities also include classroom space to conduct Bible classes for all ages. The church’s fellowship hall is equipped with kitchen facilities, and there is a
library and teacher’s workroom in the old part of the building. We are also excited about major work being done in 2003 to our courtyard which will make even more beautiful. Other remodeling is being considered to update and freshen up our facilities. Yes, our building is nice and comfortable, but we hope it is ultimately our members and their love for God that will encourage all to obey the Gospel and live as Christians daily.

During the 53 years that the Weber Road Church of Christ has existed, many men have served the congregation as elders. These men are Minor Deason, H. S. Patterson, V. W. Dodd, Odus Stephen, Guy Ford, James Holland, Perry Wilson, Thurman Windham, Harry Albright, Bill Bryan, L. V. Norris, Oran
Chapman, Les Wheeler, Doyle Harper, Frank Hale, Larry O’Rear, Herb Dawson, Jim Austin, Burt Custer, and Roy Clint, Cary Battles, Mark Drew, Richard Patterson, Perry Wilson, George Pledger, Grant Jackson, Dale Alexander and Randy Calloway . The present elders of the Weber Road Church of Christ are  Mike Klotz, Grant Jackson and Randy Calloway.

Many men have served as deacons and those who presently serve in this capacity are: Justin Esslinger, Larry Sanchez, Russell Hooten, Paul Eubanks, Art Gatica, Jimmy Crowe, Bruce Elam, Gary
Hannah, Daniel Honig, Steven Bailey, and Manuel Mungia. These men serve the church in many important works and are instrumental to the encouragement and involvement of the entire church.

For many years, the Weber Road Church of Christ has been alive and well in Corpus Christi, Texas. As we begin this century, we not only look back on the wonderful memories of years past, but we must also look forward to the work that lies ahead, the goals that are to be achieved during this century, and into eternity.

“The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye
therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into
his harvest.” – Matthew 9:37-38

“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night
cometh, when no man can work.” John 9:4

“Take heed to thyself, and to thy teaching. Continue in these things; for
in doing this thou shalt save both thyself and them that hear thee.” I
Timothy 4:16
