Welcome to the Christian Community Church

Located on rt. 30, one-quarter mile West of rt. 219, the Christian Community Church is nestled among seventeen charming acres near historic Boswell, Pa. Here sits the sanctuary, pavilion, a stocked fishing pond, and a camping area. The church was birthed in August of 1992. Since that time it has seen growth in many areas.

On Oct. 7, 2000 we dedicated our new Church facility. Ben Kinchlow (former co-host of the "700 Club") was our keynote speaker. The new church complex is complete with a lovely sanctuary, a car portico, lobbies, nursery, class rooms, conference room, kitchenette, baptistery, etc.

With phase one of the vision complete we advanced to stage 2 in 2009. That year we built our fellowship hall. It has seating for two-hundred and twenty-five, a stage area, full kitchen, restrooms, and a lovely “guest room.” On October 10, 2009 the new hall was dedicated with Russ Taff ministering for the special service. We are truly thankful for all the Lord has done and we humbly praise Him as the Lord God Almighty. We thank you for visiting our website

Our Lord gave the Great Commission to His Church to evangelize the world.

(Matthew 28:18-20)

A Doctrinal Statement of Faith of Christian Community Church

We believe:

The Bible is the infallible Revelation of God, and therefore is the only authoritative and binding rule of faith and practice.

(2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21)

There is only one Living and True God, manifesting Himself in the Three Persons of the Trinity – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – equal in every perfection and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of Redemption.

(Matthew 3:16-17; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

The Deity, Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Substitutionary Death, Physical Resurrection, and Ascension of our Lord and Savior – that He is the very God and Creator of all things!

(Luke 1:26-35; 1 Peter 1:18-21; Luke 24:1-7; Colossians 1:12-17)

The universal sin of humankind can only be forgiven and cleansed by grace through faith in the shed blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

(Romans 3:9-26; Eph. 2:8-9)

In Salvation, only through Jesus Christ, by Believing in Jesus Christ with your heart and confessing the same with your mouth coupled with a determination to repent, to turn one's self around from sin, and follow Jesus Christ.

(John 3:16; Rom. 10:9-10; Acts 3:19)

In Water Baptism by Immersion, not as a means of salvation but as a voluntary act of faith and obedience by a believer in Jesus Christ, having first repented of sin.

(acts 2:38)

In participating in the partaking of Communion.

(1 Cor. 11:23-29)

In Sanctification and Holiness, as fruit of repentance, following a believer's commitment to Jesus Christ –setting apart from the world, and leading a holy life, under the Lordship of Jesus.

(Romans 12:1-2; 2 Cur. 7:1)

In the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

(Acts 2:1-4; Acts 19:1-6)

In the gifts of the Holy Spirit, including tongues, healing, prophesy, words of knowledge, words of wisdom, discerning of spirits, etc.

(1 Cor. 12:1, 7-11)

In Praise and Worship. Believers are encouraged to whole-heartedly express vocal praise and worship, unto and before the Lord, in corporate assembly, and also individually in private.

(Psalms 148, 149, 150)

Our Lord gave the Great Commission to His Church to evangelize the world.

(Matthew 28:18-20)

In the personal and imminent Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ – first to come for His saints at the rapture; then with them to rule and judge.

(Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-17; Revelation 19:11-16)
