Welcome to 21st Century Church of Christ

Hello Dear Friends,

I personally welcome you to the home of the Faithful Church: 21st Century Church of Christ.

The goal of this Web site is to give you the necessary and accurate education needed to continue or develop your relationship with the Sovereign Lord of the Universe, the One True GOD. Our information is designed for believers to grow in faith as you discover the mysteries of God using His Holy Scriptures.

I implore you to examine the extensive truths that are revealed by reading and studying the scriptures for your own personal understanding of what God's plan is for you and the rest of the world. In a time where many religious leaders are focused on membership, rather than teaching biblical facts, The Holy Spirit (Ruach Hakodesh in Hebrew) revealed that we must all gain knowledge of what is revealed in this ancient book:

“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write,

These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”: 8 “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. 9 Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. 12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name. 13 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Revelation 3:7-13

Peace and blessings,

Pastor John

National agape Gift Bags sock ministry

The mission and vision of the Agape Sock Ministry under the umbrella of the 21st Century Church of Christ is providing funds to purchase and donate socks to those homeless and unable to purchase an item we all take for granted. Every donated pair of socks goes  to those less fortunate, particularly to the Washington DC Area homeless men and women.

Socks are the most requested; yet, they are not often donated. Our socks provide believers (and non-believers) with protection. To learn more about how you can help, click on the button below.

Daily Devotionals

January Thirtieth


Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. Matt. 8:10.


This saying of Christ has been discussed with solicitude, lest it should imply that Christ did not speak truly, or that the mother of God and the apostles were inferior to this centurion. Although I might say that Christ is speaking of the people of Israel, among whom he had preached and to whom he had come, and therefore his mother and his disciples were excluded, because they traveled with him and came with him to the people of Israel in his preaching, nevertheless I will abide by the words of the Lord and take them as they stand.

First, it is against no article of belief that this faith of the centurion was without a parallel among the apostles or the mother of God. When no article of faith openly contradicts the words of Christ, they are to be taken literally, are not to be adapted and bent by our interpretation, neither for the sake of any saint or angel, nor of God himself. For his Word is the truth above all saints and angels. Such interpretation and adaptation spring from a carnal mind to estimate the saints of God not according to God’s grace, but according to their person, and greatness, which is contrary to God, who estimates quite differently, according to his gifts alone. God frequently does through inferior saints what he does not do through great saints. He concealed himself from his mother, when he was twelve years old, and suffered her to be in ignorance and error. On Easter Sunday he showed himself to Mary Magdalene, before he showed himself to his mother and the apostles. He spoke to the Samaritan woman, and to the woman taken in adultery, more kindly than he spoke to his mother. When Peter fell and denied him, the thief on the cross stood firm in his faith.

By these and similar wonders he shows that he will not have his Spirit in his saints limited by us, and that we are not to judge according to the person. He wills to bestow his gifts freely, according to his pleasure, not to our opinion. The purpose of all this is to prevent men from being presumptuous toward others and from elevating one saint above another, thus creating divisions. All are to be equal in the grace of God, however unequal they are in gifts.
