At Christ Community Church, we believe membership in a church is a very important decision for the spiritual health of individuals and families. Membership is a way we can publicly communicate, before God and others, that our intention is to faithfully serve and build up Christ’s Church in a particular location and family of believers.
While both members and attenders are welcomed and encouraged to serve, only members may become elders or deacons, and vote in official church meetings.
Membership is important, because only with serious commitment and time invested in a local body do we really get to know each other- to be vulnerable and transparent- and to build the trust levels needed to truly hold one another accountable. We view church membership as mutual commitment and accountability to discipleship. To be a disciple is to follow Christ’s greatest commands – (1) to love God with all our mind, heart, soul, and strength, and (2) love one another as ourselves. As part of the Church, our fundamental mission is (3) to make disciples. Everything we do at CCC is geared towards spurring growth in three areas. Our mission statement reflects these priorities: To Pursue Christ, Community, and the Great Commission Together.
