Statement of Faith

1. The Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God, the standard of all faith and conduct.

2. There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the All Wise, All Powerful, All Good, Only Sovereign Lord who works out everything according to the counsel of His own will.

3. The deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His perfect and complete sacrifice, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.

4. That all men are by nature dead in transgressions, and sins, and are saved only by grace through faith in Christ Jesus, and this is not a result of anything man can do.

5. That for the salvation of lost and sinful man to occur, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

6. That it is only through the agency of the Holy Spirit that true change occurs and that the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

7. That every Christian must submit to the Lordship of Christ. He must trust in His Goodness, and believe and obey His Word.

8. The resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved. The saved will be resurrected to eternal life, the unsaved will be resurrected to eternal punishment.

9. The spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and His Sovereign Headship over His bride the Church.

10. The spiritual authority of those whom Christ has entrusted with the leadership of the local church in order to provide for the protection, peace and purity of the Church.

11. That every Christian must submit to his or her leadership in Christ according to the Word of Christ as those who must give account.

What We Do

CCTC offers training programs in Christian Discipleship, Biblical Life Skills, and a Biblical Counseling Certificate, and Community Seminars. Other services include Biblical Counseling and Biblical Life Coaching

Our Purpose

To bridge the gap between faith and life. We study the character of GOD, HIS Holiness, HIS Grace, and HIS Purpose for life. As we examine our intimate relationships, we look at our emotions within the context of the Biblical concept of love. We evaluate actions and motives and explore how change takes place.
