MISSION STATEMENT - the PROCESS to make the VISION a reality

At Community CRC we will be a community that is passionate about loving God and all people, through:

Vibrant WORSHIP of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit engaging all with relevant and age-appropriate Biblical teaching which promotes fellowship, use of spiritual gifts and stewardship of resources. [John 4:23-24; Romans 12:6-8]

SPIRITUAL GROWTH that develops from obedience to God’s Word; e.g. being part of a safe small group that accepts others where they are at as we help each other grow in faith. [Romans 12:1-2, 9-13; 2 Peter 3:18]

COMMUNITY CARE that reaches out with the gospel by embracing and walking alongside our neighbours and organizations. [Mark 12:31; Matthew 25:45; 1 John 3:18]

Fervent PRAYER at all times, for all things, and all people via a prayer ministry that models and teaches the family of God to pray; prayer is thanks living. We do nothing till we pray. [1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; 1Timothy 2:1]

CORE VALUES [Ministry values that are essential to life of CCRC]

Biblical Teaching – we believe the Bible is the foundation of our faith and life.

Children/Youth/Young Adults – we believe that ministry to all generations is essential to the life of the church, in particular children, youth, and young adults as they are an important part of God’s family.

Community – we believe that caring for those in relationship with Jesus and those not yet, is essential to the life of the church.

Family – we believe that God instituted family as a safe place for all generations to share and model the Christian life.

Joyful Giving – we believe that stewardship is essential to the Christian life; i.e. the giving of our time, spiritual gifts, resources and finances.

Prayer – we believe that prayer shows our total dependence on God to change us and to bring others into a saving relationship with Him.

Relationships – we believe that authentic relationships foster grace, trust, accountability and forgiveness.

Spiritual Growth – we believe spiritual growth is growing in grace and love for God and others.

Worship – we believe that creative and culturally relevant authentic worship draws us into a growing relationship with our triune God.
