What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Christ Community Church - GA based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.


God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.


Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.


Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to a few commonly asked questions! 

Do you have a children's program and will my kids be safe there?
Yes, absolutely. Our nursery care and Splash Kids ministry take place in a safe and secure area, under the supervision of highly-trained volunteers and staff members. Children are checked in and accounted for in our electronic database, and given a name tag to physically identify them. A parent or guardian must show a corresponding ID slip in order to claim their child(ren) following the service.

Why don't you take up an offering?
Rather than taking up an offering during Sunday services, we place offering boxes at the sanctuary exit doors as a means for attendees to engage in a final act of corporate worship as they leave. Of course, you may also make an offering as you enter or anytime during the service; by mail (to the address at the bottom of this page); or by secure online giving. As an organization, CCC practices Biblical stewardship, with 10 percent of every dollar received going to another local ministry or an international mission. Click here to give securely online.

Can I be baptized at Christ Community Church?
Yes, if you believe in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, you are welcome to be baptized as a public profession of your faith. We baptize by immersion in either our indoor or outdoor baptistry, depending on weather conditions. For infants and young children, we do dedications rather than baptisms.

How can I learn more about and/or become a member of CCC?
Our Getting Started class offers an in-depth look at the history, values, ministries, and other aspects of Christ Community Church. When you complete this course, we invite you to become a member if you decide this is the local church body God has called you to be a part of.

How can I become a Christian?
That's a great question – the most important one you could ever ask, in fact! Jesus said that anyone who enters into a personal relationship with Him is a friend of His and has eternal life. To learn how you can begin this new life as a follower of Jesus, click here. And of course, we would be happy to discuss these matters with you in person. If you would like to make an appointment to meet with a member of our pastoral team, simply call the number below.
Is CCC an independent or denominational church?
CCC is part of the Free Methodist Church, an international denomination based in Indianapolis, Indiana. However, many people who attend CCC remark that we don't have the feel of a denominational church. We think that's because the FMC is more passionate about building the Kingdom of God than some of the lesser details that sometimes get in the way in denominational churches. The FMC has a mission “to love God and people and to make disciples” and a vision “to bring wholeness to the world through healthy biblical communities of holy people multiplying disciples, leaders, groups and churches.” We consider two primary advantages to being a part of this denomination: 1) We are accountable to godly leadership, and 2) We are part of a worldwide body of believers. We don’t live in isolation but share in the work of Free Methodists throughout the world. To learn more about the Free Methodist Church, please click here.

What is our understanding of the role of women in ministry?
The role of women in ministry is one of the most controversial issues in the evangelical church today. On one hand, several New Testament passages seem to clearly support the idea that God has reserved for men roles of authority in the home and church (e.g., Ephesians 5:22-23, 1 Timothy 2:12). On the other, the Bible proclaims that men and women are “one in Christ” (Galatians 3:28) and offers numerous examples of women who held positions of significant authority and influence (Judges 4:4, Romans 16:3).

The Free Methodist Church has long held the belief that ministry roles should be determined by calling and spiritual gifts, not gender. As a result, women are free to serve in any role of leadership in the Free Methodist Church, including ordained ministry.

As Free Methodists, CCC stands in agreement with that position, but with open hands. We hold this to be a minor doctrine over which Christians equally devoted to the authority of God’s Word may disagree. In the end, we take a “both/and” approach to this issue. We challenge men to embrace their role as servant-leaders in the home after the example of Jesus Christ, and we believe that true servant leadership should result in the empowerment of all believers to faithfully serve in ways that are consistent with their calling and gifts, regardless of gender.

What Is our view of homosexuality and same-sex marriage?
We believe scripture is clear and rather straightforward in its view that a homosexual lifestyle is not compatible with Christianity. Though scripture does not directly address the issue of same-sex marriage (because it didn’t exist), its general view on homosexuality would clearly not allow for same-sex marriage.

At the same time, we recognize that scripture does not “categorize” sin, and we must be careful not to treat this sin any differently than any other. For example, one who engages in a homosexual lifestyle is no more a sinner than a heterosexual who engages in pornography or sex outside of marriage.

We would also emphasize the difference between homosexual temptation and sin. One who struggles with homosexual temptation, but embraces a celibate lifestyle in submission to Christ, is not living in sin.

Above all, we follow Christ’s example to love all people – especially those marginalized by society – with the hope of seeing them saved, redeemed and made whole in His love. Therefore, we graciously welcome all who come into our midst looking for the abundant life that only Jesus offers.
