Christ Community Church was established as a non-denominational, evangelical Christian fellowship in 2003. In 2006, we affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America through its Southeast District.
At present, our church is comprised of people from a wide variety of spiritual and non-spiritual backgrounds who subscribe to the EFCA’s Statement of Faith. In the early days, our meetings were in homes, however now we hold our weekly teaching/celebration service in a storefront location at White’s Plaza in Andrews. We still use homes for prayer and small groups.
Our elders are Todd Goins, Michael Herrington, and Tim Lescalleet.
“To Glorify God as Christ-centered and spiritually vibrant people of biblical integrity.”
From the beginnings in Genesis, to the church’s beginnings, the Bible speaks of three key tasks that God’s people should be about. These are our core values.
Bearing Fruit (Genesis 1:28, Luke 24:44–49): God’s people are called to share with others the good news of God’s love in Christ. Sharing the message of repentance and faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus for the forgiveness of sins is how the church ultimately fulfills the command in Genesis 1:28.
Bearing God’s Image (Genesis 1:26, Ephesians 4:15): God’s people are called to be holy as God is holy. We were created in God’s image to be his representatives on earth. Sin hinders us from fulfilling that calling, but through the power of the Spirit, we can truly be the body of Christ to Cherokee County as we walk in obedience to Christ, using our gifts to help one another manifest the fruits of the Spirit and look like Jesus.
Cultivating Fruit in Others (Genesis 2:15, 2 Timothy 2:1–2): Each believer is called to make disciples and help one another grow in love toward God and toward others. This discipleship is to take place wherever we find ourselves living, working, and playing.
