The Battle Creek church of Christ began in the town of Hermosa, South Dakota, in April 2011. The name was selected from the creek that runs through the town of Hermosa. The fledgling congregation met in the American Legion Hall with 16 founding members. In December of 2013, the church moved its location to its present spot off Highway 44 across from the Western Dakota Technical Institute in Rapid City.
The Battle Creek church of Christ is a non-institutional, non-denominational congregation. It believes in the inspiration of the Holy Scriptures as its only creed and guide.
Maybe you’ve noticed that a lot of churches today are involved in all kinds of business and social ventures, and very little in teaching the word of God. Some are quite proud of the fact that they place little emphasis on doctrinal matters.
Our emphasis is spiritual–not material or social. For that reason, our main concern is that we abide in, and teach, the doctrine of Jesus Christ. This requires that we pay close attention to the Bible, and treat it as our sole guide in spiritual matters.
Hard to believe that the Book of Revelation has not been properly explained until now. This commentary proves itself by identifying specific events that only occurred once throughout history. For example, the beast is identified as one of seven kings that was also the eighth king (Rev. 17:10-11). Knowing that person not only identifies the beast, but it defines when the prophecies in the Book of Revelation occurred. Knowing that person will cause many of his followers to denounce this commentary as inaccurate. The truth of God’s Word is a sharp two-edged sword (Heb. 4:12)!
