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. 


Matthew 28:19-20

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. 


Mark 12:28-34   

God

We believe in one sovereign God, eternally existing  as one being but three persons. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, three distinct persons, yet one eternal being.  


Deuteronomy 6:4 - John 1:14 -  2 Corinthians 13:14 - Matthew 28:19

The Bible

We believe in the full inspiration of the Word of God, perfect and without error. There is a total of 66 books between the Old and New Testament written by men, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible is complete and does not need improvement nor change. We believe that the Word of God determines what is true and good and that it guides us on how we are to live in this culture. 


2 Timothy 3:16 - 2 Peter 1:21 - 1 Corinthians 2:13 - Pslam 119 

The Gospel

The gospel is the good news of God's mercy toward sinners. God created everything in perfect harmony, without sin. But man rebelled and sinned against God causing separation between the two. Because of that sin, all people deserve God's  right and just judgment of eternal wrath. But God's merciful plan was to send His Son, Jesus to live a perfect life, die a sinners death and raise 3 days later. He defeated death and fulfilled what all the Prophets had written about him. In doing this, Jesus redeems and reconciles lost sinners  back to himself, saving them from God's wrath and clothing them in his righteousness.


Romans 1:16 - 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 - 2 Timothy 2:8 - 

2 Corinthians 5:21

Salvation

We believe that mankind  is dead in their  sins and trespasses, that everyone has a heart of stone and that there is no amount of good works a person can do to make them right with God. Therefore, we believe that it is by faith alone, through Christ alone, by grace alone that a person's heart is softened towards the gospel and ultimately saved from their sins. It is God who reconciles sinners back to himself through the power and work of his Son Jesus Christ. All those who repent of their sin, confess with their lips that Jesus is Lord, and believe in their heart that Jesus was raised from the dead will be saved.
