we believe in living a life of biblical proportions
B-LO ON HIGH
Our worship team here at the Buffalo Church of Christ performs Contemporary Christian and original music in the style of Hillsong, Elevation or Passion. We lead the people of Buffalo to worship through monthly Praise & Worship Nights, Praise Cafes and Worship Concerts. But you can sing along with us at every Sunday Service.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
As a family of believers, we seek to be a Bible based church. Our lives as a body revolve around living out the scriptures and holding each other accountable to be the most like Jesus we can be. We commit to be purpose driven; serving, loving, evangelizing and giving our hearts to the lost world around us to reach as many as possible. Giving God glory through praise and worship, we rely on his powerful Word and Holy Spirit to guide us.
We strive to cultivate spiritual community as different people with everything in common. When you’re in our house, we hope you too can find your home.
