Our Beliefs

  • God Revealed

    We believe that God has revealed himself to us in this world through his creation and, most importantly, in sending his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. This revelation in creation points all men and women towards our Creator God, but we believe more than this general revelation is needed. In the person of Jesus we find the one who himself, as both God and man, reveals to us God’s love, mercy and grace.

  • Rebellion

    We believe that everyone acts rebelliously against God in some way. Sometimes this is more evident to us than at other times, but no one is “righteous”. All of us fail at the first two hurdles: we do not love God with our whole being and we do not love our neighbors as ourselves. So we need God’s forgiveness and then his help if we are ever to see our lives turned around.

  • Jesus

    As Christians, we have a person at the heart of our faith and his name is Jesus. When Christ died on the cross, he died in our place. He took on himself the punishment we deserved for our rebellion, and his death dealt with our sin. As God raised Jesus from death, so we see that our future is also to be raised from death (the death and separation from God that we deserved for our rebellion). Right now, Christ reigns as King over all. We look forward to his return and a new heaven and earth where rebellion will be gone and God’s peaceful rule established forever. Meanwhile, Jesus has sent his Holy Spirit to be with us day by day to help us live for him.

  • Reaching Out With Love

    We thank God that until Christ returns, we all have the opportunity to share our experience of God’s wonderful love and forgiveness with anyone who will listen. If you want to know more, please email us at admin@ccpnet.org or join one of our regular Christianity Explored Courses.

  • Theology

    We are an evangelical church in the Reformed tradition and accept the Scriptures as entirely trustworthy. We believe that Christ is sovereign Lord over all and that, in his grace, he uses his church to further his purposes among people on earth. We are committed to the historic creeds of the church and have our roots in the great truths of the Reformation. We accept the Westminster Confession of Faith as containing the system of doctrine taught in Scripture and follow the form of church government espoused by our denomination, the Presbyterian Church in America.

What To Expect

  • Where do I park?

    Weekdays:
    There has been "soft" enforcing on the vehicles not in compliance with payments or not displaying their permits on the Church lot for several weeks, but hard enforcement is scheduled to begin January 26th, 2017. A valid coupon must be displayed at all times so that a vehicle does not get immobilized. Anyone without a coupon must pay the machine and display their receipt. The cost to remove a boot from a 3rd party enforcement company will be $75. However, this will not be enforced on any Sunday.

    Sundays:
    We reserve parking for visitors, handicapped and the elderly in our own parking lot; just look for the sign on the sidewalk! If those spots are full, please park at the building across 25th Street, where all general parking is located. Other parking attendants and signs will guide you.

    Exiting

    If the 25th St. red light is backed up, you may be directed to take a left out of the general parking lots.  If that is the case, you can take another left onto Standish or Alden which will deposit you onto Deering Rd.  At Deering Rd., take another left to return to Peachtree St. or take a right to go towards Northside Dr.

  • How do I dress?

    Dress comfortably. Most people wear casual and comfortable clothes on Sunday morning. Just come prepared to have a wonderful time of worship, teaching and fellowship!

  • What do I bring?

    Just yourself and family or friends. If you wish to bring a Bible, that is always helpful! We use the English Standard Version (ESV) but bring whatever version you have. If you don’t have a Bible, or if you forget yours, church Bibles are available in the seat racks underneath the sanctuary chairs.

  • Where do my children go?

    There is a Children’s Welcome Desk immediately inside the rear entrance (on the lower level adjacent to the parking lot), and volunteers there will assist you in getting your children to the right classroom. We take security very seriously here at ChristChurch, and your children must be registered before entering their class or room. 

  • When do I need to arrive?

    If you have children, please plan to arrive 20-30 minutes early to find parking and settle your children.  Children’s programs and Sunday School classes begin at 9:00am.  Adult Education starts at 9:15am.

    If you don’t have children, please arrive 20 minutes early.  Musicians will begin playing hymns of preparation 10-15 minutes before the worship service starts at 10:30am.

  • What are the services like, and how long do they last?

    The style of worship varies Sunday to Sunday and even song to song, but one thing is constant: our worship is centered upon God’s Word, the Bible. You’ll notice a blend of contemporary and traditional hymns, all carefully selected to reflect the day’s Scripture passage. And because worship isn’t a spectator sport, we often affirm together what we believe through responsive readings and creeds.

    Services typically last 80-90 minutes.
