The Sixth Avenue Church of Christ is a group of New Testament Christians who meet in Jasper, Alabama. Jasper is a small town with a population of about 14,000 located approximately 50 miles northwest of Birmingham, Alabama. As members of Sixth Avenue, we come from various walks of life. We were born and raised in different places and under different situations; we were educated at different colleges and universities; and we hold a variety of occupations. We do share in common, however, the greatest link – our relationship to Jesus Christ our Savior, and it is through Him and for Him that we live.

In short, we believe in pure New Testament Christianity. In other words, we believe in restoring the Bible’s pattern for everything we do in religion: worship, church organization, plan of salvation, and all other religious matters. We believe in simply speaking where the Bible speaks and being silent where the Bible is silent. We believe in doing Bible things in Bible ways and calling Bible things by Bible names. We stand ready to give a Bible answer for all that we do religiously (1 Peter 3:15).

Specifically, the Sixth Avenue congregation of the Lord’s Church is no different than the rest of God’s faithful children. God’s children are to be busy working in His vineyard to “seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10). Our evangelism efforts at Sixth Avenue include the live daily radio program that airs on W.J.L.X. AM 1240 and FM 101.5 (www.wjlx1015fm.com) every morning from 8:00-8:30 a.m. (it has done so live for over forty years) and also the bi-monthly “Words of Truth” teaching publication which reaches over 4000 families. We are also involved in evangelism to several other countries helping brother Ricky Berger and other missionaries spread the Gospel. Brother Roger Appling helps to coordinate activity in the World Bible School. This is a series of Bible correspondence courses sent to people of other nations. We also financially support other missionaries to foreign countries. The Sixth Avenue Church of Christ is also involved in the area of Benevolence (Matthew 25:34-46). We do our best to ensure that residents of Jasper and Walker County who are experiencing hardships or disaster have access to food, clothing, and shelter. We help to support the Childhaven Children’s Home in Cullman, Alabama. In addition to our support, we provide the young people from Childhaven with “Christmas in February.” We also send financial relief to aid those affected by disasters (e.g., severe weather). We at Sixth Avenue are working toward a common goal of heaven and must help one another reach that goal. We are involved in works that edify and encourage one another in good times and bad (Romans 14:19). In addition to the daily radio program mentioned above, the Sixth Avenue church also publishes the Words of Truth, a monthly publication of biblical articles that currently reaches over 4,800 households. We also participate in a program called Faith in Action. In this program, members of Sixth Avenue seek to encourage our own members and loved ones of our members by sending cards, making telephone calls, and making visits. In the process we build strong relationships and promote an atmosphere within the church that is conducive to New Testament fellowship.
