Who is the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference? 

We are a fellowship of ministering and congregationally governed churches, honoring Jesus Christ together in Biblical Christian unity.  We are "Connected in Christ, Changing Communities" for Him.  We are His people, united together from a variety of rich traditions and backgrounds, bringing His love and Timeless Truth to this generation, across the street and around the world.

The Faith of the CCCC

1.  We believe the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, to be the only inspired, inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God written.

2.  We believe that there is One God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3.  We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

4.  We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

5.  We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling power and fullness the Christian is enabled to live a godly life in this present evil world.

6.  We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

7.  We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ.
