Cross Centred Community Church – C4 is a vibrant, growing community of Spirit-filled followers of Jesus Christ, firmly centred on the Bible which is God the Father’s full and final word to us.
We are (in order of priority):
We believe that Jesus is God’s full and final revelation to us and the Bible is all about Him. His death and resurrection qualify Him alone to be Lord and Saviour.
We believe the Bible to be the Word of God to us, fully reliable and fully sufficient for a relationship with God. The Bible itself forbids us to supplement it or detract from it. Being a living and active word it speaks to us today, as God the Holy Spirit brings about understanding of the Scriptures, and repentance and faith in God’s people.
We hold to the clear teachings of the Bible as reaffirmed during the Reformation i.e. the Bible alone is the source for all spiritual authority, and salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone – all for the glory of God alone.
Specifically, we trace our Reformation roots back to the Reformation in England. We hold to the 39 Articles as being a good summary of the truth of the Bible, and in our services we uphold the principles of the 1662 Book of Common prayer. We are saddened by and distance ourselves from recent immoral developments in the broader Anglican community. While unconditionally welcoming all people into our church, we reaffirm our commitment to the historical and orthodox teaching of the Bible in regards to human sexuality and other moral issues.
