OUR CORE VALUES
Christ Community Church is a non-denominational church on mission to introduce the world to Jesus Christ.
We first launched our first service on October 2001, and for the first five years we met at the Chain of Lakes Complex in Winter Haven. Our present building was completed in March 2006.
We are made up of people of all age groups, many religious backgrounds, and different ethnic cultures.

We believe that God is the source of all that exists. God is active in the affairs of this world, and God seeks a relationship with every man and woman. God exists, along with the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Spirit, as one substance with identical qualities and attributes.
We believe in the divine nature of Jesus Christ. Jesus was both fully God and fully man, he lived among us on earth, he was crucified on a cross as a sacrifice for man’s sins, and he rose from the dead on the third day and ascended into heaven. Jesus Christ died a substitutionary death for man, and he is the only way to the Father.
The Holy Spirit is the third person in the Trinity who lives within the hearts of Christians and guides us into all truth. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we have the ability to live a holy life.
We believe that the 66 books of the Old and New Testament constitute the Holy Bible. The Bible is perfectly written, inspired, and inerrant. The Bible contains all necessary truth to lead men and women to salvation, and it is God’s Word to man.
We believe that men and women were created by God in His image, and they were created perfectly. However, because of Adam's sin, mankind has inherited a corrupt nature that leads him to sin. Because man is created in God's image, mankind has the ability to choose whether or not to follow God.
MARRIAGE AND FAMILY
We believe God’s plan for human sexuality is that it be expressed only within the framework of a lifelong monogamous relationship between one man and one woman within the framework of marriage.
We believe that Jesus Christ was given by God as a sacrifice for our sins. Christ died on a cross to mend the broken relationship between God and man, and through faith in Christ, man is restored. We believe that after we have been saved, it is possible to fall into sin. However, by God’s grace, a person who falls into sin can find forgiveness and restored relationship through confession and repentance.
GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit gives spiritual gifts to all believers for the purpose of ministering to the body of Christ.
Because the unity of the body of Christ is of utmost importance, only a language readily understood by the congregation is to be used in public worship, whether in preaching, testifying, or audible prayer.
SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
We believe in the literal, personal return of Jesus Christ to receive His believers into heaven and eternal life. His return could be at any moment, and no one knows the day or hour.
