At CCK, we have identified a few main priorities to help us be faithful to Christ’s call. These priorities shape our life together and give rise to the kinds of activities we pursue individually and as a church. Understanding these values will give you a good sense of the kind of church we’re seeking to build, by God’s grace, at CCK.
I. Applying the Gospel
We desire CCK to be a community that views all of the Christian life—our beliefs, values, and obedience—through the lens of Christ’s person and work.
II. Expository Preaching
Expository preaching, that is, preaching that explains and applies Scripture in its biblical context, enables God’s word to shape our lives individually and as a church.
2 Tim 3:16-4:2: “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.”
You can listen to all our messages here.
III. Every Member Serving
There are to be no passive participants in the church. Indeed, one of the primary reasons God saves us is to rescue us from an existence leading to death and to set us free to serve Him with joy.
You can find out about serving opportunities here.
IV. Intentional Relationships
Just as the Christian life isn’t to be passive, neither is it to be isolated. Because the Holy Spirit at conversion joins us to Christ’s body, our relationships are to be marked by this reality.
Two key aspects to these relationships are discipleship and care.
We have created community groups as a context to encourages these relationships.
V. Faithfully Evangelistic
We desire to cultivate a church culture were every member understands and embraces the biblical responsibility and privilege of sharing the gospel with others.
VI. Praying Together
We desire the life and ministry of our church—individually and corporately—to be dependent upon and fueled by prayer.
VII. Experiencing God’s Presence
A vibrant experience of the Holy Spirit is not meant to be the domain of a narrow brand of Christian; the Spirit is God’s empowering presence for the entirety of the life of the Christian and the church.
VIII. Partnering in the Broader Mission
While we have a specific mission as a church, we are also part of the Sovereign Grace family of churches. Sovereign Grace is a union of over 70 churches.
