Community Church of Appleton’s Statement of Faith

The statement we use was first published by a committee of the Baptist Convention and was named the New Hampshire Confession 1833. The confession was reissued with minor changes in 1853 by J. Newton Brown of the American Baptist Publication Society. It is one of the most widely used Baptist statements of faith in America.  We use the 1853 statement and have modified Article 16 “Of The Lords Day” which was formally “Of the Christian Sabbath.” We have also added an article titled “Of Men and Women.” We use a modified version of the 1853 statement. To the best of our ability and knowledge we have updated and modernized the language while keeping the integrity of the true meaning behind each article.

Making Disciples

Before ascending to the right hand of the Father, Jesus commanded the disciples to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit and teaching them to observe all Jesus commanded them to do during his ministry on earth. At Community Church, we believe we are to obey that command by making disciples who go and make more disciples.

The Great Commandment  

Jesus was asked by a man, "what is the greatest commandment of the law?" Upon hearing this question he answered that the greatest is to "love the Lord your God with all your heart,  soul, and mind. The second is like it, love your neighbor as yourself." At Community Church, we believe that the best way to fulfill the Great Commission is to live out this Great Commandment.
