What We Believe
Bible: We believe the Bible to be the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is our supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21; Romans 15:4)
Trinity: We believe in the triune Godhead as eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 8: 16-17; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Galatians 4:4-6)
God The Father: We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, and measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in our affairs and hears and answers our prayers. (Leviticus 11:44; 1 Kings 8:27; Job 38-41; Psalm 139; Isaiah 40:6-7; 1 John 4: 8-10)
God The Son: We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, born of a virgin, and sinless in His life, who through His death on the cross bore the punishment for the sins of the world. We believe in His bodily resurrection, ascent into heaven, and future personal, visible return to judge the world according to His promise. (Romans 1:4 & 3:25-26; Matthew 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 7:25)
God The Holy Spirit: We believe in the Holy Spirit who was sent by Christ to convict the world of sin, regenerate the believer, produce in the believer’s life the fruits of the Spirit, equip Christians for serving God, and be the seal from God that guarantees our restored position with Him. (John 15:26; 16:8 & 13-15; 1 Corinthians 12:1-14; 1 John 2:26-27)
Salvation: We believe that all people are sinners both by nature and by choice. Those who by faith accept Christ’s sacrifice for their sins are forgiven for any and every sin by God’s grace and are adopted as beloved children of God, entering into a new and direct relationship with God. Those who accept Jesus will spend all eternity in His presence. Those who reject Jesus as Savior and Lord will be forever separated from God. (John 3:16; Romans 3:23-25; 5:8; 6:23; 10:9-13; 1 John 4: 9-10)
Church: We believe that the Church is made up of all those who confess Christ as Savior and Lord. It gathers for mutual encouragement and building up of its members and to grow in knowledge and understanding of God through the consistent preaching and teaching of the Word of God. The Church also must go forth into the whole world to proclaim the Gospel to the lost through word and action. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 10:9-15; 1 Corinthians 1:21; 1 Thessalonians 5:11-14; 2 Timothy 4:1-2)
Baptism: We believe in baptism by immersion as the Bible’s norm for those who have faith in Jesus Christ. It symbolizes the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior and the believer's death to sin and rebirth to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:1-11)
Communion: We believe that communion, when shared by believers, witnesses to the saving power of the gospel, demonstrates Christ’s continuing presence in His church, and looks forward to His victorious return. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26; Luke 22:14-20)
Participation: We believe that it is the duty and privilege of all believers, within our ability, to support the local church with our regular presence, financial support, and service. (2 Corinthians 8:9; Hebrews 10:25; 1 Peter 4:10)
Godliness: We believe that in Christ God’s people are a new creation by God’s grace and that through the Holy Spirit we are to renounce all forms of sin, striving to live a life of holiness and purity in accordance with the Bible’s standards. (Romans 1:18-28 & 8:28-30; Ephesians 4:17-24; Philippians 3:7-14)
Marriage: We believe that marriage is a sacred institution established by God to unite one man and one woman in a covenant commitment for a lifetime. (Matthew 19:4-6)
Value of Life: We believe that since humanity is created in God’s image, human life is of inestimable worth and significance in all its dimensions, from conception to the grave. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 139:13-14)

What To Expect
Christ Community Church
What is the service like?
We think you will find a welcoming, friendly group of people that will allow you to enjoy the service at your level of comfort. There will be no expectations of you (no "visitors stand up") and there is no need to give when we take the offering. The main two elements of our Sunday service are singing and teaching. The singing is a beautiful blend of old and new put together and led by a talented team of musicians. The teaching is rooted in what we believe to be true; that God desires to meet with His people and speak to us through His written word. The service lasts about an hour and fifteen minutes and guests almost always give us positive feedback on their first experience.
What should I wear?
We believe that God cares more about what is in our hearts than the clothes we wear (1 Samuel 16:7). There certainly is no dress code. Feel free to dress comfortably - most do. The pastor doesn't where a robe and only occasionally is he seen wearing a tie.
What about my children?
CCC has great programming for children during the service. We have trained adults who consider it a great privilege to teach and minister to your children. Our goal is to teach children that God has a plan for their life and there is no need that He cannot meet. If your child is an infant-2 years old there is a well staffed, wonderfully equipped, and safe nursery for you. If you have a toddler that is 3 years old- pre-K we have a excellent program for them and finally if your child is K-5 we have a program for them that keeps their attention and teaches them the beauty and truths of our God. 6th grade on up participates in the regular service. If you choose to keep your child with you while you acclimate to the church that is welcome as well.
When Should I Arrive?
Due to parking and traffic considerations, plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of Worship. Sunday school gatherings begin at 9:00 a.m., the worship service begins at 10:15 a.m.
