A Letter From Pastor Mark
For 96 years, Christ Community Church has been making disciples of Jesus for Kingdom impact. We have been seeking the deeper life in Christ and sending missionaries to the least-reached places on the planet. We take our mission seriously.
Over the years, we have seen kids raised to love Jesus, marriages restored, lost people found, lonely people included, pain healed, hospitals built, pastors trained, and love poured out worldwide. Thousands have trusted Christ and grown to become ambassadors for Jesus in a needy world.
Each generation has sacrificed for the next. Buying property, building buildings, renovating facilities, sending missionaries, developing disciple-making initiatives—all contribute to the incredible ministry that has so impacted each of our lives. We are so grateful for each generation of Kingdom-minded risk-takers that have brought us to where we are today, and seek to emulate them to bless the next generation.
We are now ready to enter into a defining season for our church. It is a season of radical surrender and radical generosity called Beyond Belief. I pray that it will set us up to thrive for another 96 years of ministry!
Our primary goal is 100% engagement in full surrender to Jesus. We dream of disciples of Jesus moving Beyond Belief to surrender, giving themselves afresh to Christ and His purposes in a way that moves us to a whole new level spiritually as a church. We dream of being recklessly abandoned to Jesus, surrendering control, surrendering our fears and pains, and even surrendering our strengths and dreams to Him.
When 100% of thousands of people freshly surrender to Jesus, the Spirit will move in powerful ways to reach the lost, heal the broken, plant churches, release resources, equip missionaries, raise up pastors, and extend compassion to those in need. When we are surrendered, what God can do is Beyond Belief!
We look forward with great anticipation to what God will do in us and through us as we seek Him wholeheartedly. May God simultaneously stretch you and strengthen you as you take the journey Beyond Belief!
