Scholls Community Church has been a part of the community since 1893 when the church was built. It has always strived to share the Gospel of Christ and serve the community in His name. A passage written about the church in 1957 still rings true today:
“May we strive to keep this little church forever a ‘beacon’ throughout the entire community. Now that we are firmly established and well equipped to advance in the spiritual work of God’s kingdom here, let us pray that this little church proves to be a lighthouse, steering folks on the right path to glory.”

Serving Christ for God’s Glory! At Scholls Community Church we believe that it is only through a living faith in Jesus Christ that a person finds hope, forgiveness, joy, and strength to live a life that is both glorifying to God and personally satisfying. We pray that through our worship, prayer, and Bible teaching, as well as our interaction with each other, that we might be strengthened and encouraged in our relationship with the Lord Jesus.
Statement of Faith
Scholls Community Church aims to glorify and enjoy God by making and being disciples of Jesus Christ. We fulfill this through preaching the Gospel, baptism and communion, spiritual growth of our members, leading people to salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ, and support of missions.
- We Believe that the Bible, inerrant in the original manuscripts, is the infallible and authoritative Word of God, which reveals to us the truth about God and our relationship to Him.
- We Believe in one God who has eternally co-existed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All three are infinite and equal in substance and perfection.
- We Believe that salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ to all people. Salvation is by grace through faith and is based on the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those who trust in Christ as Savior are born again by the Holy Spirit thus becoming the children of God, and are given the free gift of eternal life. Good works are the subsequent fruit of salvation.
