CHRIST COMMUNITY CHURCH of NEWFIELD
The purpose of this church shall be:
1 – To carry out the Great Commission of Christ in evangelizing the lost by individually and corporately giving witness to the power of Christ, and by promoting the ministry of the Word at home and abroad.
2 – To carry out the Great Commission of Christ in discipling the believer by maintaining regular services for both instruction and public worship, by administering the ordinances of the New Testament, and by providing such institutions and organizations as would equip our people to better service Christ.
1 – The Holy Scriptures
We believe in the Bible, accepting fully the writings of the Old and New Testaments as the Word of God, verbally inspired in all parts and therefore wholly without error, altogether sufficient in themselves as our only infallible rule of faith and practice.
(II Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:19-21, I Thessalonians2:13)
2 – The Godhead
We believe in the Triune God, the Creator of heaven and earth, eternally existing in three Persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe God is self-existent, immutable, infinite, omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, and perfect in truth, love and holiness.
(Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Matthew 28:19, II Corinthians 13:14)
3 – God the Father
We believe in God the Father, the Creator of heaven and earth, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
(Psalms 8, John 1:12, Titus 3:5, Isaiah 6:1-4)
4 – God the Son
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, truly God and truly man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. We believe in His sinless life, that he died for our sins according to the scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, having victory over death. We believe in His bodily resurrection, ascension into Heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father ministering as our High Priest and Intercessor and His personal, visible return to earth.
(John 1:1, I Corinthians 15:3-4, Acts 1:9-11, Luke 1:35, I John 2:1, Hebrews 4:14)
5 – God the Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit, possessing all the attributes of personality and deity, who came forth from the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment; and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ, abiding in them as helper, teacher and guide.
(John 6:7-11, II Corinthians 3:6, I Corinthians 12:12-14, Romans 8:9, Ephesians 1:13-14, Acts 5:3-4)
