ABOUT US

 

AT CANAAN COMMUNITY CHURCH, WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT TO US IS RELATIONSHIP.

OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST

We value the literal presence of His Spirit in our worship, fellowship, and individual lives.

RELATIONSHIPS WITH PEOPLE

1. We value a spirit of unity within our church fellowship through encouragement, appreciation, and mutual support

2. We value healthy relationships within our families, through Godís values

3. We value our community.  That means: Each person, as a special design of God.  The local community, as our place to live Christ.  And our global community, as Godís call to Ďall nationsí.

CHANGED LIVES THROUGH SPIRITUAL GROWTH

1. Which creates and deepens our relationships.  And for this reason, we value the building blocks of growth-

2. Prayer as a means of connecting with God

3. The Bible as a perfect reference for growth

4. Learning through balanced Biblical teaching and example

5. Practice of what we have learned in order to continue growing

6. God-given gifts, both natural and spiritual for the benefit of all.

What we value most is relationship -with  God, and His most prized creationĖ people.

 

We believe the bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection and ascension and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that the salvation of the lost comes only by grace through His shed blood.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

 

We believe in the resurrection of the saved to one of life and of the lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Canaan is a nondenominational fellowship.  However, we are affiliated with the Christian & Missionary Alliance.  In this way we connect with our local community as well as with the greater church body.
