FOR THE GLORY OF GOD...Reach, Nurture and Release, Devoted Disciples to IMPACT the World!
Path for Transformation
There are many passages of Scripture which declare the preeminence of Christ-exalting preaching (1 Corinthians 1:21, 2 Corinthians 4:5a, Romans 16:25a, 1 Corinthians 2:1-2, 4), otherwise none as proclaiming the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ.
These verses show that true preaching exalts Christ in His glorious person and work. They emphasize that when Christ is proclaimed, there is a demonstration of the Spirit and power so that those outside Christ are saved, those in Christ are established, and the gospel is advanced in the world (Colossians 1: 3-8).
Christ Church exists to point people to Jesus Christ and disciple them in His character and nature by creating paths to walk on that lead to Christian maturity. This will result in followers of Jesus Christ impacting culture for the praise and exaltation of God's glory and grace.
Christ Church's PATH TO TRANSFORMATION through the proclamation of the gospel:
Gospel centered WORSHIP creates the context of discipleship which is Gospel-Centered COMMUNITY.
The overflow of discipleship in a Gospel-Centered COMMUNITY is Gospel-Centered SERVICE.
The result of discipleship in Gospel-Centered SERVICE is Gospel-Centered MULTIPLICATION.
With all the energy God provides (Colossians 1:29), we work this plan for God's Glory.
God wants to change all of us (2 Corinthians 3:18) - what you believe, how you feel, and what you do about it. Spiritual growth begins from the core and should express itself outwardly through your compassions to those around you.
