Our History and Beliefs
Church of the Servant King, began as
a free group Bible Study in the home of our
Pastor, Steve Ellis, in 1997.
For a number of years, participants met in person.
Eventually, in 2006, we began to facilitate off-site participation
via the internet. At present, we are meeting exclusively via the
internet using WebEx as the mechanism. Invitations to each
session are sent via email to those who have expressed a desire to
attend by sending an email to the pastor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For a more detailed
list of our beliefs, please visit the Constitution
and Doctrine page.
Study sessions are conducted on Sunday afternoons at 3:30 to 5:15 pm CST
and on Wednesday evenings at 8:00 to 9:00 pm CST. Various
series are currently underway. The Survey of the Bible
(SB) series in our Sunday sessions is designed to
provide a comprehensive overview of books of the Bible. At
present, we have covered the Gospel narratives, James,
and the Pauline letters in chronological order to our present
study of Romans in the SB series. The Contemporary
Issues series in our Sunday sessions is a series in which
we are dealing intermittently with specific topics and issues that
are prominent in our culture. In our Mid-Week Bible
Study, we are currently engaged in a study of the Person
and Work of Jesus Christ and Various Foundational Doctrines.
