The purpose of Community Christian Fellowship:
~ To worship and serve God.
~ To fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ as set forth in Matthew 28:19-20.
~ To minister to the needs of the members and to others outside the church to the extent the church is able to do so.
~ To do any and all things related to and in connection with the carrying out of the object and purposes stated above.
We believe ...
~ The Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God. We believe God's Word is without error and is the all-sufficient authority in matter of faith, doctrine and Christian living.
~ In one God, eternally existing in three persons - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
~ In the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ, and that He is completely God and that He was completely man. He died on the cross for our sins; He rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father and is now our High Priest and Advocate.
~ That man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost. We believe only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can man's salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
~ That eternal life is a free gift of God, entirely apart from man's works and is possessed by any and all who have faith in and receive Jesus Christ as the personal Lord and Savior.
~ In a regenerated church membership: this is, anyone old enough to understand their need for Jesus Christ and, of their own free will, accepted Him as their personal Lord and Savior.
~ In the personal, bodily, imminent, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ and that His Second Coming inspires believers for dynamic and zealous life and service to Him while waiting for His return.
~ In the bodily resurrection of the dead, the everlasting blessedness of the saved in heaven, and the everlasting punishment and separation from God of the unsaved in hell.
~ That Jesus gave us two symbolic acts that we observe as ordinances: Baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper. Baptism is a symbolic act of obedience. A person who receives Jesus Christ as Savior by personal faith, who professes Him publicly, and who indicates a commitment to follow Christ as Lord, shall be received for baptism. Baptism shall be by immersion in water. Baptism may be administered by the pastor or whomever he shall authorize. The Lord's supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby believers, through partaking of the bread and fruit of the vine, commemorate the death of Jesus Christ and anticipate His Second Coming.
~ In the autonomy of the local church. The church shall manage its own affairs and shall not be subject to any other religious body or organization.
