Jesus is central to everything we do. The Holy Spirit transforms lives through worship, prayer, and the teaching of God's word. People are encouraged, connected, and grow through authentic relationships. We engage our community and the world through compassionate service and sharing God's truth.
Christ Community Church began as a home Bible study in 1986. Sunday worship services began in April 1988. The vision of CCC at its inception was to establish a foundation of small groups, contemporary worship, and relevant, expository Biblical teaching.
Christ Community Church is a multigenerational, elder-led church whose mission is to honor God by loving people as Jesus loves them. Sunday mornings include contemporary worship and teaching for children and adults. During the week, there are multiple prayer opportunities and small groups that meet to study the Bible, support one another and serve together.
The vision and goals of CCC have endured since its founding, and have been renewed and expanded in recent years. Most of our founding members, now in their 60s, are still actively involved, but the leadership of the church, with the enthusiastic support of the initial core group, has been largely turned over to a new, younger generation. CCC is committed to reaching the community in which it is situated, and bringing the gospel and its healing and transformative power to the problems faced by much of rural and small-town America, including substance abuse; the continuing decline of the traditional two-parent family; and economic stagnation and decline. Opportunities for ministry abound, as shown by the response to the outreach events sponsored by CCC. The recent economic renaissance occurring in Buffalo has begun to have positive effects on northern Chautauqua County as well. CCC is confident that God’s plans for northern Chautauqua County are to prosper it, and not harm it, and to give it a bright hope and future. We are looking for a pastoral leader to help us achieve this vision.
