Our Beliefs

We believe:

 

That Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit was born of the virgin Mary, and is completely God and completely man.  He lived a sinless life and died for our sins.  He rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and is now our Advocate.  (I Cor. 15: 3-4)

 

That the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and we hold it as the final authority on all matters.  (II Timothy 3: 16-17)

 

That there is one God, the Creator of all things, existing in three persons:  The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.  (Gen. 1:1 & Matt. 28:19)

 

That man was created in the image of God, but he sinned which resulted not only in physical death, but also in spiritual death.  All human beings are born with a sinful nature and can only be made whole through the love & grace of God through Jesus Christ.  (Gen. 1:27 & Romans 6:23)

 

That salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christ alone.  All who believe in Him are justified and promised eternal life through His shed blood. (John 14:6)

 

That the ordinances of the church as given by our Lord are Baptism and The Lord’s Supper.  (Acts 2:38 & Matt. 26:26-29)

 

That the Lord commissioned the church to evangelize and make disciples of all nations.  (Matt. 28:16-20)

 

That Christ is coming for His church and He will visibly return to establish His Kingdom on the earth.  (Matt: 24:30)

 

What Do You Mean, The ‘Christian Church’?

Community Christian Church is a non-denominational fellowship of believers in Christ (hence the name “Christian Church”).  We have no creed (no written state of or system of beliefs) but Christ, no book but the Bible, and wear no names but those found in the Scriptures.  We believe that Christ (not some ordinary man) is the Head of His Church & therefore that every Christian is a part of His one Body (the Church).  We earnestly desire to be Christians only – plus nothing and minus nothing.

We want to speak where the Bible speaks, and remain silent where it is silent.  The sole basis for our beliefs and practices is the Bible.  We feel that all who truly love the Lord Jesus Christ and want to please Him in all things can unite on this basis and work, serve & worship together in harmony. 

Since the Church in the New Testament consisted of those who humbly & sincerely believed & obeyed the Gospel (the Good News about Jesus’ death for our sins, His burial and His bodily resurrection – –   1 Corinthians 15:3ff), we want to follow that Scriptural pattern.  Whatever made a person a Christian then, made him a member of Christ’s body, the Church.  We endeavor to believe & teach the same today.  Thus, we believe & teach what the New Testament teaches as the means by which we are saved, including:

God’s Grace: Ephesians 2:1 - 10; Titus 2:11, 3:7; Romans 3:21 – 26.

The Word of God Implanted: James 1:21; Ephesians 1:13; John 20:31.

Christ’s Life: Romans 5:9 – 10; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:23 - 25.

Christ’s Blood: Matthew 26:26 – 28; Acts 2:36 – 41; 1 Peter 1:18 - 19.

The Gospel: 1 Corinthians 15:1 - 2; Romans 1:16 - 17.

Hope: Romans 8:22 – 25; 1 Thessalonians 5:4 – 11; Titus 3:3 – 8..

Calling Upon the Name of the Lord: Acts 2:14 — 21; 22:16; Romans 10:11 - 13.

Faith: Romans 10:6 - 17; John 3:14 - 18; Hebrews 11:6; Acts 8:36 - 37; Ephesians 2:1 – 10.

Repentance: Acts 2:36 - 40; 3:17 - 21; 17:29 - 31; 2 Timothy 2:24 – 26; 2 Peter 3:9.

Confession: Romans 10:6 - 17; 1 John 4:13 - 16; Matthew 16:16 – 17; Acts 8:26 – 39.

Water Baptism (by immersion): Acts 2:36 - 41; 8:26 - 39; 16:29 - 34; 22:16; Romans 6:1 – 6; Galatians 3:26 - 27.

(By the way, many other Scriptures could be cited to support these).

 

 

Community Christian Church of Durant Vision Statement:

 

Community Christian Church exists to . . .

     SHARE GOD’S CHANGELESS MESSAGE of LOVE and GRACE

          in a CONSTANTLY CHANGING COMMUNITY

                in order that each and every person

                      may be TRANSFORMED into a COMMITTED DISCIPLE of JESUS CHRIST.

 

     We do this by KNOWING JESUS CHRIST and MAKING HIM KNOWN

          through EVANGELIZING the LOST and EDIFYING and EQUIPPING the SAVED

               that JESUS CHRIST MAY BE EXALTED

                    in the HOME, CHURCH, COMMUNITY and WORLD - until JESUS COMES.
