Beliefs

ScriptureAt Christian Community Church, we strive to share the love of Christ in the context of real life, knowing that our mission is rooted in the great truths and promises of the Scripture.

God – Trinity
There is one God, Who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. — Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19; Jude 20-21

Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He physically arose from the dead according to the Scriptures and will come again to establish His kingdom, righteousness and peace. — Philippians 2:6–11; Luke 1:34–38; 1 Peter 3:18; Hebrews 2:9; Romans 5:9; Acts 2:23–24; Hebrews 8:1; Matthew 26:64

Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is a divine Person, sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. The chief role of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Jesus.  — John 14:15–18; John 16:13-14; Acts 1:8; John 16:7–11

The Bible
The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the promise to dwell in our midst. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice. — 2 Peter 1:20–21; 2 Timothy 3:15–16

Man
Man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man was created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, we cannot attain a right relationship with God through our own efforts but need a Savior.  Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love. — Genesis 1:27; Romans 3:23; 1 Corinthians 15:20–23; Revelation 21:8; Revelation 21:1–4

Salvation
Man, being disobedient, incurred both physical and spiritual death. Because of this, all men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become children of God. Those who reject Him face an existence of everlasting punishment. — Romans 7:18; Psalm 51:5; Romans 6:23; 1 Peter 2:24; Romans 5:8; Titus 3:4–7; Romans 2:8; Matthew 25:41

The Church
The local church is a group of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for prayer, fellowship and the proclamation of the Gospel.  The “Church”, on the other hand, consists of all who put their trust in Christ alone for their salvation.  Christ is the Head of the Church and has commissioned all believers to go into all the world as witnesses, preaching the Gospel to all nations and peoples. — Romans 16:5; Ephesians 1:22–23; Matthew 28:19–20; Ephesians 5:25; 1 Corinthians 12:28

Christ’s Return
We believe the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal and visible. His return is a vital promise that provides an incentive to holy living and faithful service. — John 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Hebrews 10:37; Luke 21:27; Titus 2:11–14

Our Resurrection
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost – those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. — Matthew 25:46; John 5:28-29;  Acts 24:14-15
