THE CHURCH

We call ourselves the Brummett Church of Christ.
The first term, “Brummett”, is geographic.
“Church of Christ” is a description.  It is the church that belongs to Christ.

This church is not part of a denomination. It wears Christ's name and no other.

The church began in Jerusalem.  (Isaiah 2:2-3 - “ And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.  And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths:  for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”)

 

Christ is head of the church, his body.  (Ephesians 1:22-23  - “And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.”)

Christ is head of the body, the church.  (Colossians 1:18 - “And he is head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have preeminence.”)

There is one body.  (Ephesians 4:4 - “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling.”)

One body, many members.  (I Corinthians 12:12 - “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.”)

 

 

History of the building

The church building was constructed in 1916.  The land in the Brummett Community was donated by Add Gillis.  The timber was given by Charles Finley of Williamsburg, Kentucky who had a forest where the logs was harvested.  The logs were sawed for lumber at no cost by Harrison Underwood Sawmill.
