HELPING ONE ANOTHER DAILY FOLLOW JESUS
We are a community of disciples sent by Jesus to make disciples. Each of us takes responsibility for our individual relationship with God while we also share in the responsibility to love and disciple one another. Christ Community Church exists to help one another daily follow Jesus.
THE SPECIFICS OF OUR CALL
We desire to create an environment at CCC that is simple in its approach to help one another daily follow Jesus. We want our church to be as purposeful and effective as the first church. This is done as we live out Our Call.
We need to roll up our sleeves and do the hard yet rewarding work of helping one another. Whether this is through ministering to kids, leading a Bible study, serving on Sunday morning, or grabbing coffee with someone to encourage them in Christ, we are called to invest in one another’s lives.
Over 50 times in the New Testament we are called to action on behalf of “one another." Whether it is to love one another, care for one another or bear the burdens of one another, it is clear we are to do more than follow Jesus alone. We need Him and we need one another. We are to become more like Jesus in the context of the church community.
While the church service happens every Sunday, the life of the church is a privilege that is lived out every day. We are a church that daily looks to Jesus. We daily care and sacrifice for one another. We are daily on a mission to reach out to those that don’t know Him.
We are all a work in progress. Life in Christ is not just a one-time conversion but rather a life long journey where we are becoming more like Him. To do so we listen to his voice, learn from his teaching, obey his commands, and carry out his mission. Following involves our whole heart, mind, soul and strength.
Jesus is who we are following, and who we are helping people daily follow. He is the only way to heaven. He is our Savior, King and Lord. He is Truth, the only Way to the Father, and the only One that gives us eternal life. He is the One that sent us the Holy Spirit so we can live a full life in the here and now. He is the Author of our mission to go and make disciples. He is coming back for us one day so that we can be with Him in Heaven for eternity.
OUR CORE VERSES
Christ Community Church seeks to live out the Great Commission, the Great Commandment, and the New Commandment Jesus gave His disciples. We model our church after the first church Jesus’ disciples started over 2000 years ago.
The Great Commission
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
The Great Commandment
"And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these."
The New Commandment
"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
The First Church
And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
