OUR VISION AND MISSION
OUR VISION AND MISSION
The vision of Christ Community Church is to bring glory and praise to God, to proclaim the hope of salvation in Christ to Eastern ID and beyond, and to lead disciples into the joy of Christ-centered community.
The mission of Christ Community Church is to make disciples of Jesus who gather to worship in Spirit and in truth (Jn 4:23), who grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ (2 Pet. 3:18), and who go into the world proclaiming the Gospel (Mt. 28:19-20).
Our first priority is the worship and exaltation of God. We gather together in wholehearted worship so that we may bring glory, praise, and honor to our Heavenly Father. We also affirm that sincere, biblically accurate, and passionate worship is a powerful witness to the truth of the Gospel.
We value the spiritual growth of every believer. Next to our primary purpose of being worshipers in Spirit and in truth, we want every disciple to excel in love for each other as they grow in their knowledge and depth of insight into God's Word (Phil. 1:9). We believe that the spiritual growth training of every disciple of Jesus is critical to the health and the expansion of the church in the world. Our focus is on preaching God's Word in our public gatherings and offering a wide variety of spiritual growth opportunities on Sunday morning and throughout the week.
We value service and outreach. We believe that real success is measured by being faithful and fruitful with the trust of the gospel. Our aim is to follow Jesus' model of selfless and sacrificial service to others. We do this as we engage in a missional lifestyle from Monday to Saturday. We want to continue to be a "safe place" for those who remain undecided about Christ. We will cooperate with, encourage, and support other believers and churches that are committed to Jesus Christ, to the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to the Bible as God's Word.
Biblical - The Bible (both Old and New Testaments) is the Word of God, the source for what we believe, and the standard for how we live. The Bible “is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). The central theme of the Bible is the person and redemptive work of Jesus Christ. We want our beliefs, expressions, and actions to conform to God's Word as closely as possible so that we can faithfully proclaim the person and work of Christ.
Evangelical - The central work of God in Jesus Christ is our salvation. Jesus Christ lived a sinless life, died for our sins on a Roman cross, was buried in a borrowed tomb, and was bodily raised from the dead. He died in our place and suffered the penalty that we deserved because of our sin. On the basis of His death those who trust in Jesus Christ are forgiven by God, brought into relationship with God as His children, and indwelt by the Holy Spirit. This gospel or “good news,” is at the heart of the ministry and fellowship of Christ Community Church. We desire, above all, to proclaim Jesus as Savior to the people of our community, nation, and world (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Acts 1:8).
Dependent upon the Holy Spirit - We believe the Holy Spirit is a present, transforming reality in the life of the church and the individual believer. The Holy Spirit indwells, empowers, and gifts each believer for service. The Spirit convicts us through God's Word in order to transform our thoughts and habits and to encourage and strengthen our faith. The Bible achieves its full effect in our lives only through the work of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:14; John 16:13-15). We emphasize prayer as a means of confessing our dependence on God and seeking His help and direction for our lives and service.
Elder led, emphasizing ministry by all believers - CCC is led by elders who shepherd the flock, teach, and set the overall direction for our ministries (Acts 20:17; Titus 1:5). In leading they strive to be responsive to input from the entire congregation. We believe that all followers of Jesus Christ are called to minister (Ephesians 4:12; 1 Peter 4:10) and seek to promote and support this through our Ministry Team structure.
Emphasizing meaningful, wholehearted worship - We strive to worship God in ways that are worthy of Him. This means worshiping out of wholehearted devotion the One who has revealed Himself in Jesus Christ. We want our collective worship and our individual patterns of life to be a means of declaring our God’s infinite glory and worth so that others will join us in worshiping Him. We believe that such worship is the only proper response to God, who is graciously present with us and for us. (Matthew 22:37; John 4:24; Psalm 34:20).
