CCBI Doctrinal Statement
We believe in the New Testament Apostolic Christianity. The Word of God is accepted in its entirety as the final source of authority in matters of faith and practice. There was a miraculous guidance of the Holy Spirit in the original autographs extending to all parts of the Scriptures equally. We believe in one God, that He is one in essence and person. One form of whom, and in whom there is a divine three-fold personal manifestation and relationship known as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God, that is to say, He Himself is very God; that He took upon Himself human nature, being conceived by the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary; that He died upon the cross as a true substitute, and that His death was a sufficient expiation for the guilt of all men. We believe that Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead and that He ascended into Heaven, where He is now our interceding High Priest. We believe in the visible, personal and premillennial return of our Lord Jesus Christ for His church of righteousness and peace. We believe in the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost. We believe that the church is an elect company of believers, baptized by the Holy Spirit in one body, each believer living a consistent Christian life in the power of the Holy Spirit.
