What We

          Believe

 

 

 

THE BIBLE: is the authoritative word of God, without error in it’s original writings and is to be interpreted in a normal, literal way.

 

GOD: is one being eternally existing in three equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the creator of the universe and all life therin.

 

JESUS CHRIST: is fully God and fully man, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary. We believe He was crucified, died and was raised from the dead so we coul have eternal life.

 

HOLY SPIRIT: is the third person of the Godhead who indwells every believer and that His ministry is essential to the spiritual life of every believer.

 

SPIRITUAL GIFTS: are bestowed by the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation to every believer for the purpose of serving others. We do not promote or practice the gift of speaking in tongues here at CCBC.

 

MAN: was created (male/female) by God in His image, for His purposes, but that when Adam, the first man sinned, man became separated from God.

 

SIN: The consequences of Adam's sin effect the entire human race; that all humans are born in a sinful state alienated from God. We believe no one, by their own efforts, is able to remedy this lost condition.

 

ANGELS: were created by God as sinless spirit beings. Some have remained in that holy state and serve the Lord. Others rebelled against God and are fallen spirit beings, chief of whom is Satan, the instigator of sin in God's kingdom, and who is active today counterfeiting the works of God.
