Welcome to the web site of the Samford church of Christ. We are a group of Christians which meets just outside the community of Steele in what is known as the Bootheel of Missouri. Our purpose is to serve and worship God in spirit and in truth, to teach others about Christ, and to help each other reach our ultimate goal of heaven.
We invite you to explore our web site to learn more about the teachings of the church of Christ and our family here at Samford. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or contact us through our "Contact Us" link. We also invite you to join us in worship at any time you may have the opportunity.

Overcoming Obstacles from House to House, Heart to Heart
The nine-foot, 400-pound Goliath challenged the children of Israel and blasphemed Almighty God. David, a seventeen-year-old fuzzy-cheeked lad who came to visit his brothers demanded to know why they were not accepting the challenge. The brothers explained that you could easily get hurt by fighting fellows like Goliath. They felt certain Goliath was just too big to hit. David knew that Goliath was too big to miss with God’s help.
Next, David wanted to know where the king was, and his brothers explained that the king did not feel so well. When David told the brothers he would fight Goliath, they figured he was crazy. Obviously, the brothers were comparing their size to Goliath’s, and that made nine-foot Goliath pretty big. David was comparing Goliath’s size to God, and that quite obviously made Goliath pretty small.
Whatever your obstacle may be, the size is never larger than the ability of God and the petitions of His children. “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (Matthew 7:7–8).
