At Reidsville Christian Church, we exist to look, live, and love like Jesus. We value grace, unity, and family. Regardless of background or the past, is it is our mission to point all people to taking next steps with Jesus. 


While God and the Bible are the ultimate authority for Reidsville Christian Church, there is a leadership structure to keep the day-to-day operations and ministry of the church moving forward and correctly. The leadership of Reidsville has a few key parts. First, elders. Reidsville is first and foremost an elder-led church. The elders provide oversight, vision, and guidance to the church and most importantly the spiritual side of the church. The next level of leadership is the staff. These men and women carry out the day-to-day work of the church. We are elder led, but staff driven.


These godly men lead our church and are established following the model set forth from Acts 6, 1 Timothy 3:1-7, 1 Peter 5:1-4, and Titus 1:5-9.

What We believe


What is the gospel?



We believe that God the Father created the world and loves all of His creation. We recognize Him as the Father of all mankind and as such, our ultimate authority. We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and complete Word of God. 

GEN 1:1; HEB 11:3, JOHN 3:16; 2 TIM 3:16-17; 1 PETER 1:20-21



Human beings were made in God’s image to love and worship Him forever. But ever since Adam first rebelled against God, we have all been lost in sin, under God’s judgment, and unable to save ourselves.
GEN 1:26; ROM 3:23



We believe that Jesus Christ is God in human form, the only Son of God, and our only hope of salvation. He has been given all authority and deserves our recognition as Lord and Savior. We are reconciled to God through Jesus' life, death and resurrection. 

JOHN 1:1, 14, 3:16, 14:6; PHIL 2:5-7; COL 2:9; MATT 28: 18-20

Pointer (Hand)


God offers us His gift of salvation by grace, which we receive through faith in Jesus. He makes us new, calls us to leave sin behind, and invites us to join His work in the world.
