The following are the core beliefs of Community Church based on foundational Biblical truths. All of our teachings and ministry are rooted in and flow out of these doctrines.
There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
God has revealed Himself to us through His Son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the Holy Scriptures, and through all of creation itself.MankindHumans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creation.
When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.
Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin nature. God raised Him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Him. We follow Jesus by faith in obedience to His lordship. This is the only pathway to eternal salvation.
The Church is the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
