ABOUT CCS | STATEMENT OF FAITH
 

We believe the Bible to be inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God.  (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21)

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30)

We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25; I Corinthians 15:4); His Ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); and His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11).

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that people are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone are we saved.  (John 3:16-19; John 5:24; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.  (John 5:28-29)

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.  (Romans 8:9; I
Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28)

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.  (Romans 8:13-14; I Corinthians 3:16; I Corinthians 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:18)

“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.”  (Colossians 2:8)

 

What the Bible Says about Becoming a Christian

We are all sinners…
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”  Romans 3:23
 
Sin has a penalty…
“For the wages of sin is death and the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
 
Christ paid our penalty…
“But God commended His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”  Romans 5:8
 
Confess, believe, pray and receive…
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”   Romans 10:9, 10 & 13
