Our Core Beliefs

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Community Church of Mountain City based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

The Father

We believe in a God who is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, holy. It is in Him that we live, move, and exist. God is good. He is our heavenly Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises.

The Son

Jesus Christ walked the earth fully human, but at the same time He is God. He bridges the gap beween God and man, and is the only plan for bringing people far from God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life so He could be a substitution for us on the cross and fully satisfy God’s demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so we could have life.

The Holy Spirit

His presence assures us of a relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth, and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin and makes them aware of God’s righteousness and the coming judgement. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.

The Trinity

God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. We believe in the existence of only one God, existing in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.


God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.


Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.


Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth. 

Ordinances of Jesus: Baptism & Communion

We believe Baptism is the water immersion of a person after salvation, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit after salvation. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried and risen Savior. It is the outward expression of an internal decision. (Matthew 3:13 – 16; Acts 2:41 – 41; 8:36 – 38)

The Lord’s Supper (Communion) is to remind the singular believer of the sacrifice Christ made for him/her through His death on the cross. The bread symbolizes His broken body, and the cup reminds us of His shed blood. (Matthew 26:26 – 28; 1 Corinthians11:23 – 26)

Being part of a family comes with responsibilities. Just as someone has to take out the trash, fix dinner, wash dishes, mow the yard, get the oil changed in the car, – to make a house feel like a home, everyone works together. Our CTeams operate on that same thought.
