COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN CHURCH
ARTICLES OF FAITH
We teach the Bible is the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. The Bible is the final authority on all matters of life, faith and practice.
We teach that there is one God, eternally existent in three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We teach in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We teach that salvation of lost and sinful man is an act of God’s regeneration power by the work of the Holy Spirit, through faith and is absolutely essential.
We teach the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We teach the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection and everlasting life with the living God and they that are lost into the resurrection of damnation into a literal hell.
We teach that every area of life is to be subject to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and we adhere to a world and life view which seeks to make the Lord Jesus Christ preeminent in all things.
We further express that God the Father is our creator and our sustainer in life; that Jesus the Holy Son of God is our redeemer, and we submit to His Lordship, and that the Holy Spirit is the one who reveals and guides us personally and professionally in our ministries, and that the Holy Bible is the infallible authority in matters of faith and conduct.
Moral- Social- Spiritual Issues
When a question exists, we teach the individual Christian should take the high road. We advise abstention, regarding Moral, Social and Spiritual issues, i.e.; Social and Family Life; Marriage; Alcohol; Tobacco, Drugs; Etc. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
These Biblical standards guide us as we apply the life-giving message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our ministry. The application of these standards of faith and conduct, indicate that we demonstrate a respect for and value of every person, as a being created in the image of God.
We teach that the Church is made up of individual born-again believers who make up the Church, but in fact do not constitute a Church while standing alone; becoming the Church only as they congregate together in numbers of two or more, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 18:20)
