Christ’s Church Mission

“Connecting people to Jesus and one another.”

Job one:  Preach, teach, baptize and teach our community about Jesus and His Gospel!  “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20

Job two:  Provide a nurturing culture within CCOMC, particularly by promoting the use of our Spiritual gifts, that will encourage individuals to grow as Christians through worship, fellowship, teaching and service.


Christ’s Church Motivation

Jesus said, “This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” – Matthew 22:38-40.  The two things that God wants most from us are for us to love Him with all that we are and to love other people.


Christ’s Church Doctrinal Statement

We believe in one God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:2; Matthew 5:16, 45; 6:1, 4, 8, 9; John 1:1; 4:24; 14:9, 16-20; James 1:17; 2 Peter 1:21)

We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible.
(Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:3)

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son, our one and only Savior,
(John 1:14; 3:16; 1 John 4:9; 2 Peter 3:18) who was born both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life, (Matthew 1:18; 21:11; Luke 1:26-38; John 1:14; 19:19; Romans 5:15-17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1) who suffered and was crucified, (Luke 23:1-46) who died and was buried, and Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day, (Luke 23:44 – 24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8) who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father, and (Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1-9; Colossians 3:1) who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead. (Matthew 24:36-42; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:10-11; 10:39-42; 1 Peter 4:5)

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is a personal and active part of the triune God, and (John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27) who indwells every Christian. (1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 2 Timothy 1:14)

We believe in the Bible – God’s Holy Word.

We believe God inspired the original writings of the Scripture, and therefore the Bible is completely trustworthy in all its parts. (John 14:26; 16:12-15; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice. (Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12)

We believe that people created by God willfully sin against God and are consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ. (Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23)

We believe that salvation – the forgiveness of sins – cannot be earned but is given to us by God’s grace only through the blood of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:1-11; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-10; Hebrews 10:19-22; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7)

We believe that we must respond to God in faith by

Believing that Jesus was and is the Son of God and trusting Him as Savior and Lord  (Romans 10:11-13; Philippians 2:11)

Confessing that belief before witnesses (Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9-10).

Repenting – turning away from sin and toward God  (Acts 2:38; Acts 3:19; Acts 17:30)

Being baptized (by immersion) into Christ  (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-4)

Earnestly seeking to follow Christ’s teachings and example, thereby acknowledging His authority in our lives and honoring Him through our faith and obedience  (Romans 6:11-23; Romans 12:1-2)

We believe in the church of Jesus Christ, consisting of all Christians everywhere. (Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47, Ephesians 1:22-23)

We believe in the church’s mission: making disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to obey all of Jesus’ commands. (Matthew 18:18-20)

We believe that those who have put their trust in Jesus Christ will spend eternity with him. (John 3:16; 6:39-40; 11:25-26)
