Statement of Faith
We may use a variety of language and music styles to communicate God’s word for today’s culture, but our message is as old as the Bible itself. As such, we embrace historic Christian teaching, emphasizing the following beliefs.
Our Core Values
At College Park Community Church there are seven key principles to which we are committed. Regardless of how our ministry changes, these are the standards by which we strive to conduct ourselves in all matters.
TRUTH - We are absolutely dedicated to teaching, believing, & doing what God declares in His Word.
"For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, It penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; It judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." ~Hebrews 4:12
LOVE - We will show care, concern and compassion for ALL others.
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength...Love you neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these." ~Mark 12:30-31
PASSION - We will fully and enthusiastically invest ourselves to making a difference in our world.
"Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does." ~Ephesians 6:7, 8 "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." ~Colossians 3:23
VISION - We will be willing to adapt & change to reach, and eternally affect our culture.
"I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some." ~1 Corinthians 9:22
ACTION - We will sacrifice our time, energy, and resources to accomplish the work of ministry.
"Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
~1 Corinthians 15:58
TEAMWORK - We will make every effort to work together in Biblical unity.
"And in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit." ~Ephesians 2:22
"From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work." ~Ephesians 4:16
GLORY - We will give complete honor and credit for every good thing to God.
"...whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." ~1 Corinthians 10:31
We identify with a movement known as the Church of God, based in Anderson, Indiana, which teaches that the church must emphasize unity as brothers and sisters in Christ, and that we are called to live a life of holiness – daily asking the Holy Spirit to make us more like Christ.
We practice water baptism by immersion; regular celebration of communion, prayer, and anointing with oil for physical, mental, and spiritual needs; and the public use of an altar for prayer.
