Our Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible, authoritative written word of God
We believe in the eternal triune God.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through his shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and the empowering of the Holy Spirit is a separate and distinct experience subsequent to salvation, providing power for life and service.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved into the resurrection of life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the creation, test and fall of man as recorded in Genesis, his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain divine righteousness apart from God.
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of men, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very man.
We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day and personally appeared to His disciples.
We believe in the necessity of water baptism.
We believe in the table of the Lord, commonly called Communion or the Lord’s Supper, for believers.
The basic principles of this fellowship are best expressed in the functioning of its autonomous churches.
The New Testament is our pattern. Because the Church is God’s plan for evangelizing the world, it follows that we should find a scriptural pattern for the founding and functioning of local churches. This is of prime importance in carrying out the Great Commission.
It is impossible to view New Testament Christianity as something that could function normally without proper organization. Certainly the Bible speaks of church organization. It gives us a very distinct pattern, but in one area only—the local church.
While the New Testament pattern does not call for the organic union of local churches or centralized authority over local churches, it does reveal a wonderful spiritual fellowship and voluntary cooperation among local assemblies. The New Testament scriptures supply clear examples of this interaction. The love and fellowship existing among these autonomous churches is illustrated by the cooperative effort of the Gentile churches in sending relief to the impoverished and suffering churches in Judea. (II Corinthians 8, 9; Romans 15:25-27)
Apostolic local churches knew no overall denominationally directed program and method of procedure. They engaged in carrying out the Great Commission. Each local church made itself responsible for evangelizing its own locality and surroundings. (Acts 2:46-7; 5:28; 8:4-17; 11:19-24; 13:1-14:28; Romans 1:7-8; Philemon. 2:12-16; I Thessalonians 1:6-10) Even the apostles respected the autonomy of local churches in the matter of evangelization and cooperated with the local program. (II Corinthian 10:13-16; Romans 15:23-4)
To the fulfilling and preserving of these simple scriptural principles of local church life and work, we humbly direct our cooperative efforts.
To this end CCIF is comprised of autonomous Christian churches and ministries from diverse denominations, ethnicities and geographic locations, serving as an organizational covering for and working collaboratively with ministries and local churches to strengthen the mission of the Church worldwide.
