Who We Are:
We believe the Bible to be the Inspired, Inerrant, Infallible Word of God in it's original manuscripts. It is our supreme authority in all matters of doctrine and practice. We are affiliated with the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference.
Who is the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference (CCCC)?
We affirm the core tenets of historic biblical Christianity based upon an uncompromising conviction in the truth of Holy Scripture.
The CCCC Way of Life
The Board of Directors has affirmed that the Conference is devoted to a way of life in obedience to Jesus that is reflected in the Great Commandment and the Great Commission:
- Love others (Matthew 22:39
- Love God (Matthew 22:37)
- As you go, make disciples (Matthew 28:19)
Our leaders, member pastors, and churches are called to reflect this devotion to Jesus through their daily living and service.

3. Healthy Disciple-making Church
4. Healthy Church Multiplication
5. A Community of Shared Life and Shared Mission
6. A Culture of Biblical Peacemaking and reconciliation
7. A Membership Reflective of the Harvest Field's Diversity
