At CCM we believe Jesus is the centre of the Christian faith and our lives. Who he is and what he has done for the world affects all that we do as Christian community, and is behind our mission to 'make and grow disciples for Christ.'
Jesus is Lord
Jesus is the Son of God who was born as a man and lived around 2,000 years ago. The Bible records for us his teachings and all the powerful saving works he did. Jesus’ perfect life and ministry show us that he is the Christ (which means Messiah or Chosen King). God had promised Israel long before in the Old Testament that this chosen King would come. God had given his word that the Messiah would defeat death and overcome human wrongdoing. Jesus came into the world to bring forgiveness and peace to people of every nation.
If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved - Romans 10:9
Jesus is Saviour
Jesus lived the perfect life of obedience and faithfulness to God that we humans all fail at. When he suffered and died on the cross he stood in our place and took our punishment. This means Jesus has rescued us from God’s anger and washed us clean of our wrongdoing. Sinful, broken people who come to Jesus are completely forgiven and made new. We are now reconciled to God so that we can call him Father!
