TOGETHER WE FOLLOW JESUS FOR THE SAKE OF OTHERS
Our Core Values
As a church family, we unite around eight core beliefs. These are our DNA, the make up of who we are and who we are becoming.
As a church family we unashamedly minister for the sake of:
God’s written word is our guide and authority in everything. We stand firm where it leads us to Jesus, and flexible where it is flexible. – Hebrews 4:12, John 5:39
We believe that God works best when we are committed to each other in all ages and stages of life. Life change happens when we are intentionally committed to each other in Jesus centered relationships. All ages have a role to play in the body of Christ. – 1 Corinthians 12:12-26
Canadian and Others
The church is at its best when it exists to bless others. We strive to take the posture of servants in all that we do. Our ministry begins in Canadian and works its way out into the wider area and the world. – Matthew 5:43-48
Success as a church is found in our devotion and love for Jesus Christ. Fully following Jesus is normal for people who call themselves Christians. – Mark 8:34-35
We are far from perfect, but we believe in life change. God’s Spirit is at work among us; forming us, shaping us, and equipping us to look more like Jesus Christ. – Romans 12:1-2, Romans 8
Our source of strength and motivation is the love of God. That love overflows in our actions in all that we do. – 1 John 4:7
No one is beyond the mercy and forgiveness of God, nor can we earn it. We are followers of Jesus only because of God’s grace. Grace allows to be honest about our sins and hopeful for our future.
– Romans 6:23
What To Expect
What should I wear?
We are much more concerned about what’s going on inside of a person, than what they are wearing on the outside. Some of our folks dress up, but most show up in jeans. So don’t worry about it. Just come as you are. God is not looking for us to put on a show. He is looking for us to be real and authentic.
What’s the worship like?
You will probably notice that our worship doesn’t have any instruments. Our goal with our music is ultimately to be singing songs that enable us to say, “Thank You!” to our Lord and Savior Jesus and to encourage each other so that we can sing songs with our life as we serve throughout the week. You will also notice that we center our worship around Communion. Communion is our time each week to reflect on the love and sacrifice of Jesus and to connect as a family. It is both personal and communal. Our communion is open to all believers.
What is the overall church like?
We are a friendly, energetic group here at the Canadian CC. We strive to make you feel welcome and help you connect with God. We understand that going to any place new can be uncomfortable, that’s why we try very hard to help you feel at home while you visit us. If we make a mistake let us know. But most of all, join us in praise to God for his grace and mercy through Jesus!
