Christ Community Church as a God-glorifying, Christ-exalting and Bible-saturated body of believers, who love God and love people, for the glory of God in Christ and the advance of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Christ Community Church exists to worship God, fellowship in community and build the body of Christ by making, maturing and multiplying disciples until the Lord Jesus Christ returns (Acts 2:42-47, Mt. 28:18-20, Eph. 4:11-16).
Principles that we hold dear and commit to following at Christ Community Church:
Our greatest value is that of community and communion- to bring people into fellowship with God in a life-transforming way by virtue of the proclamation of biblical truth in family-integrated dialogue, worship and inter-personal relationships. Intentional and relational discipleship as a church family of families, is a primary vehicle for us to carry out this value (Phil. 4:9; 1 Thess. 2:11-12; 2 Tim. 2:2).
By way of the expositional preaching and teaching of God’s Word in the Sunday gathering, which is to be affirmed and applied through small-group discipleship. By expositional communication, we mean that we are to teach what all of the Bible says - what it means by what it says, and what we are to do by what it means and says (life application and Spirit-filled transformation), by encouragement in an interactive dialogue in our gatherings (Acts 20:20-21; 2 Tim. 4:1-4).
To celebrate the triune personhood of God through worship music that conforms to our vision, as being God-glorifying, Bible-saturated, Christ-exalting and Spirit-filled, with a view towards the facilitation of congregational singing in worship and edification of the body (Eph. 5:19, Col. 3:16).
corporate giving of our time, talents and treasure is to occur as a form of worship to God, and as a means to support the church’s kingdom mission and to do “good to all men, especially to those who are of the household of faith” (Gal. 6:10; Acts 2:44-45).
community outreach and ministry, manifesting the truth of Christ in love, and initiated and led by the local body itself (Mt. 22:37-40; 1 Cor. 12:4-7; Eph. 4:10-11), and to be continued through the ministry and giving towards missions (Mt. 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; 2 Cor. 9:2-8) both near and far.
