Vision and Values

The Vision & Values of CCC Bowie

The Vision
In the power of the Holy Spirit and for the glory of the Lord, Christ Community Church seeks to become a multicultural and multiethnic community of devoted followers of Christ who demonstrate Christ’s love to each other, our community and the world. 

Our Mission Christ Community Church exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ by being a Bible-centered, multidimensional fellowship of believers, who extend Christ’s love by proclaiming the Kingdom of God and demonstrating its power by healing the sick, healing the brokenhearted and by setting the captives free. 

Our Values 
We value the Word of God 
We believe the Bible is inspired by God and it has the ability to transform lives. It is also the final authority for our faith and life. "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." (II Timothy 3:16 NKJV). 

We value Continual Prayer 
We believe that prayer is essential to this ministry; it is the great work of the Church and fuels everything that we do, as it supernaturally advances the kingdom of God in the earth. "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14 NKJV). 

We value Diversity 
We believe the Holy Spirit enables us to enjoy the beauty of diversity as we relate to one another as a multicultural, multiethnic, multigenerational, multi-gifted and multi-political fellowship of believers who acknowledge their distinctiveness but walk in the unity of the Spirit. "I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." (Ephesians 4:1-3 NKJV). 

We value Loving Relationships 
We believe that love is the greatest gift of all and should be expressed through one’s relationship with God, family, fellow believers and everyone in the world. "By this, all will know that you are My disciples if you have love for one another." (John 13:35 NKJV). 

We value Whole-hearted Worship 
We believe in worship that is exuberant, diverse and celebratory where people are encouraged to be transparent and open before God, giving Him their very best. "But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." (John 4:23-24 NKJV). 

We value the Spirit-Filled Life 
We believe in the fullness of the Spirit where spiritual gifts are encouraged and exercised with freedom and order. "And be not drunken with wine, wherein is riot, but be filled with the Spirit." (Ephesians 5:18 ASV). 

We value Innovative Outreach 
We believe in using relevant and innovative methods in the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ. "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." (Matthew 28:19 NKJV). 

We value Excellence 
We believe in doing everything with excellence because it honors God and gives credibility to our witness. "Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps because an excellent spirit was in him, and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm." (Daniel 6:3 NKJV). 

We value Integrity 
We believe in the importance of integrity; it is the guiding factor in all of our decisions in the ministry. "The integrity of the upright will guide them." (Proverbs 11:3 NKJV).
