what we believe
Matthew 5:16, 45
Matthew 6:1, 4, 8, 9
We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible.
We believe in the Bible, God's Holy Word. We believe God inspired the original writings of the Scripture and because of that we accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
1 Corinthians 2:12-13
We believe in Jesus Christ as the promised Messiah, the only begotten Son of God, and the visible image of the invisible God. We believe that He became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man. We believe that He accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross and by His physical resurrection from the dead. We believe that Jesus ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God.
1 Peter 2:24
We believe in the Holy Spirit, Who is active as God’s presence today and Who indwells every Christian.
John 16: 5-15
1 Corinthians 3:16
1 Corinthians 6:19
We believe the Bible teaches that man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
We believe that salvation is a free gift from God given by grace and received through faith in Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 1:18-19
We believe that responding to God’s grace is a life long journey. The way we say it at CFCC is that we are “continually surrendering more and more to what we are learning about Jesus.”
Romans 3: 23
Titus 3: 3-7
Romans 10: 11-13
We believe the Church of Jesus Christ, the community of believers, serves as a witness to God’s “now” and “coming” kingdom. We believe this witness happens as the community is nurtured and as the community relates to the world in selfless acts of love, justice and service. At CFCC we refer to this as our opportunity to elevate the dignity of all mankind.
