Christ Community Church exists in response to the Good News of Jesus Christ, to be God's worshipping, fellowshipping, witnessing community.
We desire to have our lives centered in worship of the God who has engaged the world in reconciliation, the God we know as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Every Sunday through the classical practices of Christian liturgy, and through the seasons of the church year, we seek to have our lives transformed by the story of Jesus.
We also meet weekly in small-group “house churches.” There we share our lives, our joys, our burdens. We share our possessions with each other and the poor. We fast and pray together; we rejoice and celebrate together.
By God’s grace we work for justice and peace in God’s world. We seek to be governed through submission to the Holy Spirit and each other. We make decisions as a body, by consensus, as leaders converse with the whole congregation.
We associate with a broad diversity of Christians by
maintaining a focus on the classical beliefs and practices
common to all Christians from the earliest days of our
faith. For example: the historic creeds (Apostles’ and
Nicene), baptism, and holy communion. We seek to be
submissive to the great tradition(s) of Christianity and
long for the recovery of the unity of the whole Church.
In 2004 we sought to become more formally connected with
the wider global church. We discerned to join the Mennonite
tradition as we identified with their theology around their
emphasis on living out faith in community and focus on peace
and justice. Specifically, we are members of the
Central Plains Mennonite Conference, an area conference of
Mennonite Church USA, and a member of the Mennonite World
We confess that we do none of these things perfectly, but by God’s mercy we are learning to live ever deeper into the Kingdom of God – “on earth as it is in heaven.”
