CCBC is by nature evangelical and charismatic.
We are committed to and passionate about both Word and Spirit.
We are dedicated to mission, as individuals and as a church; making Jesus known and calling people to repent, believe and follow Him.
We believe in the local church essentially meaning people (not buildings). We are either gatheredtogether (i.e. on Sundays, in homegroups, prayer triplets etc.) or scattered (in our work place, homes, leisure time, in fact wherever we are). Our times of gathering together are very important, especially for worship, encouragement, prayer, teaching, fellowship and being equipped as disciples; in order that when we scatter we continue to live as disciples, as Jesus’ people (the church) in the world.
The local church is the hope of the world
“There is nothing like the local church when it’s working right. Its beauty is indescribable. Its power is breathtaking. Its potential is unlimited. It comforts the grieving and heals the broken in the context of community. It builds bridges to seekers and offers truth to the confused. It provides resources for those in need and opens its arms to the forgotten, the downtrodden, the disillusioned. It breaks the chains of addictions, frees the oppressed, and offers belonging to the marginalised of this world. Whatever the capacity for human suffering, the church has a greater capacity for healing and wholeness. No other organisation on earth is like the church. Nothing even comes close.” – Bill Hybels, Courageous Leadership
We have a culture of invitation, following the example of Jesus who said “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matt 11:28).
