Today, that simple goal of building relationships has become a vision. A vision to connect to the God we can know, who has the answers we need, through faith in Jesus, to connect to each other in real relationships that help us grow closer to Christ, and connect to the people around us, to care for others and meet their needs, helping them see how great our Lord really is. That’s our vision:
Connecting to People.
After all, you know how divided the world can be. But God made us to be together, he made us for community. The good news is, when we trust in Jesus, that's exactly what we find. We find real connection to God, restoration, hope, peace, and the promise of a future with him. And we find real connection to each other, real friendship, real support. And we find a new purpose, to go to the people in our lives, to love them in real, powerful ways, and to help them see there's hope for them because of Jesus.
the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testament, to be the only inspired, inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God written.
that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
in the deity of 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.
that, for salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling power and fullness the Christian is enabled to live a godly life in this present evil world.
in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ.
Part of connecting means that we're not in this alone. Since the beginning, WCC has been part of the CCCC, a conference of churches that is focused on building healthy churches where people find their needs met in Jesus.
